Wish I was on the Mountain--But Glad I Didn't Miss the Broncos

In my previous posts on gear, one of my favorite devices for skiing is not actually for skiing at all. Rather it is for the umpteen hour trips back and forth between home and the mountain. I broke down and bought a Sirius Satellite Radio add on kit for my Avalanche over Thanksgiving weekend last year so that I could listen to the Broncos versus Raiders game while driving home from Big Sky to Arizona after Thanksgiving last year.

This Thanksgiving weekend, I didn't have to listen to the game and annoy the hell out of my wife and expose my children to profanities that would make my former Navy shipmates blush. And the Broncos gave me little reason to use profanity with a 24-21 win over Dallas. On the one hand, I wish I were skiing, but on the other, it was nice to spend Thanksgiving at home with family.

Last year, I was at Big Sky instead of in Tucson for ASU vs. U of A, so this year, I am spending the day at Sun Devil stadium watching more football and may catch the 3A State Championship afterwards despite my team being eliminated last week.

Moral of the story is that despite suck snow, I still have football. And when I am chasing powder during December and January, I still have football. Oh, yeah, and I am in so much trouble my first couple of days on the mountain this year because I feel so fat this afternoon. BLAH!!!
