Hey - I agree ;-))

On a serious note: I think that the perseverance that's necessary if you 
want to go 48 hrs straight is part of regarding contesting as a sport. At 
least to me it is. It's about finding out about your limits and trying to 
push them further a bit, isn't it? 
And I tell you what: the challenge to continue competing when your body 
cries for sleep is FUN to me. Maybe that's why my family thinks I am -hm- 
different, hi.
