    The apple doesn't fall far from the tree as they say in Michigan.
    I'd like to see this on Boston Common.

    Spitting over 90 feet IS quit an accomplishment.

    Man out-spits father, claims pit-spitting title Sun Jul 6, 2:44 PM ET



    EAU CLAIRE, Mich. - Brian "Young Gun" Krause has out-spit his father to claim his seventh championship at the International Cherry Pit Spitting Championship.


    Krause's winning spit on Saturday was 56 feet, 7 1/2 inches.

    That's 6 1/2 inches better than his father, the second-place finisher and defending champion, 54-year-old Rick "Pellet Gun" Krause of Tuba City, Ariz., who spit 56 feet, 1 inch.

    Thirty-year-old Brian Krause, of Dimondale, currently holds the Guinness World Record after spitting a pit 93 feet, 6 1/2 inches in 2003.

    Amanda Jennings of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, the first woman to place in the top three, did not qualify for championship competition but retained her title as women's champion with a spit of 43 feet, 11 inches.
