Been too busy to blog lately. But I will say this...last week our faculty Dodge Ball Team won the first annual school Dodge Ball Tournament. Sixteen teams: three faculty teams and thirteen student teams. Who woulda thunk us old timers would whoop up on those younguns? The Paddy O'Brien Shamrockers! Champs!

I will admit I was a bit sore the next day.

It is always weird when it snows down here. Got a light dusting last night. Looks nice. I mean, if it's going to be in the 20's at least it can look the part. Makes me think of Colo and skiing.

When we go to car shows my son likes to take pictures of all the engines rather than the cars themselves.

I have actually dreamed about the perfect corduroy run. Sometimes I can hear the crisp slicing of the ski edge into the line. Man.

Front Loaders

So yesterday I was sick. I called in to work, went to the doctor who found I just had some virus...nothing serious. Well, I had the rest of the day to rest, nap and catch up on Netflix. Watched episodes of Portlandia, Breaking Bad, Mad Men and Miami Vice. Yes, Miami Vice.

I'm watching an episode of Miami Vice, from season one (circa 1984) when the following exchange takes place...let me set the scene first.

A drug deal is being negotiated. However, the buyer isn't too keen on the deal. The seller decides to sweeten the deal.

"How bout I throw in some high-end VCRs?"


"Of course! Only the best!"

"Okay, let's do it."

VCRs to sweeten a drug deal? Man, I miss the 80's. Yeah, those top-loading VCRs were so ghetto.

Nice Season

So it's been a few days. Guess it took me that long to get over the Royals losing in Game Seven. Great season. I was just hoping they make the Wildcard game and they ended up American League Champions. Took it to seven games. Proud of the Royals.
