Kenyan wins Boston Marathon

His name?

Barack Obama.

I kid. I kid. Dude's name is really Robert Kiprono Cheruiyot. He actually set a record for today's event, by completing the 26 mile run in 2 hours, 5 minutes and 52 seconds.

What I liked best about this story (aside from the easy Obama/Kenya joke) is the following passage detailing what Mr. Cheruiyot plans on doing now that he has won.

Cheruiyot, 21, surpassed the course record of 2:07:14 set by his namesake in 2006, when he was 27. A farmer back home, the younger Cheruiyot earned a bonus of US$25,000 on top of the $150,000 -- and a golden olive wreath from the city of Marathon, Greece -- that goes the men's and women's winners.

"I am going to buy some cows," Cheruiyot said.

In an increasingly volatile economic environment, I believe that the purchase of cows (a steady supply of meat and milk) represents a well thought out investment with a likely return on investment that will exceed the initial cost.

Which is really how I know that Barack Obama didn't win the Boston Marathon.
