Red Smith wrap-up

Thursday, Jan, 17 2013

Big thanks to all that attended or participated in the 48th Red Smith Sports banquet on Tuesday night!  What a fun night!  Goose Gossage, Mark Murphy and the funny man of the night, Pat Williams of the Orlando Magic!
I assisted Chuck Kunitz with some of the emcee duties on Tuesday night, and I'm honored to be named as the primary emcee beginning next year for the 49th annual banquet.  Chuck's not going anywhere--I'll need his help in the years to come!!  Thanks again!

Gassy?

Tuesday, Jan, 8 2013

Just a quick observation. Sure, I know that many factors go into the price of a gallon of gas, but I stopped at a station in a small, resort-type town in Colorado last week, and paid $2.78 a gallon!  That's over 40 cents LESS than what we are paying per gallon here!  And that was in a small town, not the Denver metro...go figure!

Packers-Vikings Three!

Wednesday, Jan, 2 2013

I think the third Packers-Vikings matchup will end differently than the second battle. Why?  At least three things come to mind.
1. The Vikings just aren't the same outside of the comfy Metrodome. Take away the home crowd and the climate control, and The Vikes just don't cut it outdoors.  Plus, it will be about 19 degrees at kickoff.
2. The Packers adjusted very well after the slow start in Minny. Don't come out rusty on Saturday night and the Vikes will be in trouble.
3. Adrian Peterson can't do this again....can he?

Early look at a final: Packers 27, Vikes 20.

My Tom & Jerry experience!

Wednesday, Dec, 12 2012

Saw Phil Cianciola's blog mention of his very first Tom & Jerry  I remember mine, but I was quite young!

My Dad was hosting a holiday party at the house, dozens of people, most I didn' t know!  So, there's Dad making these goofy drinks with this frothy gunk at the top of the glass. I noticed he was also adding some booze to the glass, so I knew that wasn't going to be offered my way!  Dad makes me what essentially was hot cocoa with the frothy gunk, now known as Tom & Jerry batter.  Hey, not bad!  As I grew a bit older, Mom snuck me one with just a hint of Creme De Cacao in it, and I was hooked!

Now, we enjoy a Tom & Jerry or two during the holiday season, often to pay tribute to loved ones we have lost through the years. Plus, they taste so good!
