The Academic Olympics

The Little Professor suggests events for an Academic Olympics. They're very funny. I am currently competing in the Graduate Student Slalom ("Racing against the clock, competitors ski through seminars, oral and written exams, TAships, dissertation proposals, dissertations, and defenses. In years past, many competitors have wiped out along the route") ... very appropriate, since skiing is the only sport listed there that I've ever been remotely good at.
