Who knew cheese could be so dangerous!

The Annual Gloucestershire Cheese Rolling Contest in England was cancelled due to concerns about safety, but that didn’t stop the “Unofficial Cheese Roll”  yesterday.

Contestants chase an 8-pound wheel of cheese down a hill, and the first one to catch it at the bottom is the winner.

Talk about action! Would you ever do this? I’m way to accident prone to try this but the tradition has been around for 200 hundreds years. Ya gotta love tradition, even when it HURTS!

Here’s a look at the competition yesterday.
