The lights are on, the box is locked, it's robot fightin' time!

Rob and I were really into "Battlebots" a few years back. We even went to a live competition on Treasure Island in San Francisco, which was a hoot and a half. The robots fight so hard, they have to have someone come into the box and sweep up metal shards after each bout.

I was all set to write a travel story about the experience for MSNBC, but then "Battlebots" got shut down. But now?

It's baaaaack.

And yes, I am filing this under "sports." Is that a problem?
