For the second year in a row (the dachshund racing fans among us may remember our discussion of the wiener race last year), the Old Pueblo is home to a wiener dog competing in a national championship race, sponsored by (who else?) Wienerschnitzel.

On Dec. 28 27, Tucson will be represented by a dachshund named Oscar and his owner, Tyson Rondeau. Oscar will be running in the Wiener Nationals, in San Diego, for pride, glory and $1,000 cash. Also, the winner will get a position of honor in the San Diego Big Bay Balloon parade, and will be brought out to be recognized at halftime of the Holiday Bowl. Pretty heavy stuff, for dogs that are longer than they are tall.

What does this mean for you, Tucson? Truth be told, not a whole lot, unless you happen to be the kind of person who really digs it when local folks are getting national coverage. Then you should be excited!!~

Seriously, very cool for Oscar and Tyson. Best of luck to you both; we're looking forward to your victory, in which we will shower you with hot dog bun crumbs. That's like a ticker-tape parade, right? It's almost like snow, at least.

None of these are probably Oscar, but this is closer.
