    Famous Showdowns Between Outlaws and the Law

    Every once in a while, you've just got to have some fun.

    And that's what we did at News4 on Friday afternoon, as we held our very own faux-Olympics outside our station in northwest Washington.

    Tricycle races? Check.  

    Water balloons? Check.

    Headbands and t-shirts that matched the colors of the NBC peacock?  Definitely a check.

    A good time was had by all -- especially by those on the gold medal-winning Red Team, which included the likes of News4's Barbara Harrison and Tisha Thompson and NBC News' Domenico Montanaro.

    Thanks to everyone who participated, and a special thanks to General Manager Jackie Bradford for the opportunity to allow us to get the competitive spirit going outdoors instead of in the newsroom!

    Watch the video below for a recap of the day's competition, hosted by News4's Liz Crenshaw.
