If Creedence Clearwater Revival"s "Fortunate Son" were to serve as the soundtrack to video shot near Bascom Hill on the UW-Madison campus, cliché would demand that it be four-decade-old protest footage, right?

More commentary about sledding down the hill next to the Elizabeth Waters residence hall -- typically on top of a cafeteria tray -- is provided by The Daily Cardinal and Mark Sadowski. "These are some pretty steep hills," he notes, "which makes for a short, very fast ride." Particularly on a snowboard.
