Alaska is jumping with excitement as the Iditarod dog sled race begins today, Saturday March 3rd. Which musher will win? One of the old-timers: Martin Buser, Jeff King, DeeDee Jonrowe, or a younger musher like one of the Bennington twins or a Redington brother, or one of the favorites: Nicolas Petit, Joar Ulson, Jessie Royer, Aily Zirkle, Aaron Burmeister, or last year's champion, the great Mitch Seavey? Make your prediction, follow the race from one checkpoint to another, and we'll see the result in about 9 days. Good luck to all the wonderful dogs. Gee! Haw! and ... Mush!
