Mainly, both highlight terrific talent. I suppose an economist could enjoy messing around with contrasting distribution of income and governing structures, but seems like a unique win-win for the Eugene area to have both events.

    Steve P,
    Be careful judging events from google photos. The fair is so much more then painted boobs… If that is all you see then you missed 99.98% of the fair.

    And yes, it IS way more fun then the Olympic trials.

    Try replacing the word Eugene with track and re-post the results.
