JP rips up Loveland again

JP is living the dream at Loveland Pass. Sick snow. Sweet trees. Tons of fresh pow. And from the looks of it, a couple of bluebird days.

If you get a chance, head on over to his site and check out his latest video on his exploits. Make sure to hit the blog link though and read the details about the video. Solid job JP.

I am going to start planning a trip up to Summit shortly when I can free up about a week. My cousin wants to go up for the December 24th Broncos vs. Raiders game at Mile High and kick it with some sick skiing before and afterward. I am trying to figure out how to sell spending Christmas Eve and Christmas day skiing and watching football to my wife. If I can somehow pull that one off, I expect that the world will end almost instantly with Fire and Brimstone. But that does not mean that I am not going to try. Let's see how much she loves me. The good news is my son Jake is on my side here as long as I drag him with. My son was born on January 3rd, 1997, two days after this little nugget:

But the Sun Devils were by no means ready to give up. With the Buckeyes up 14-10, the stage was set for a dramatic finish and no Hollywood scriptwriter could have penned a more exciting ending.

Jake Plummer had already established himself in his career as a clutch performer with a knack for pulling out unlikely victories.

"We knew (Plummer) was a winner," claims Rudzinski. "He had come from behind so many times that season already, we didn't want to be just another victim."

Things did not look good for the Buckeyes when on a third-and-11, Jake "the Snake" somehow slithered his way into the end zone to give ASU a 17-14 lead with 1:40 to play.

"I just remember Plummer going to the sidelines and taking off his helmet, looking like he had just won another one for Arizona State," adds Rudzinski.

I won't spoil the ending--no wait, I won't talk about the ending--but as a Sun Devil Alum, we became Bronco's fans two and a half years ago.
