Our friend who is the news director at the local radio station told us the son of the owner of the first radio station he worked at is in the Olympics as a snow boarder - Louis something. He was on Dancing With the Stars early in the season. He is supposed to be the heir apparent to Shaun White. Reuben says he watched the kid grow up and he is a nice kid.I've been impressed with all the athletes. Though I am a Canadian and hope Canada wins today, I also love the USA.
My favorite athlete so far has been USA's Shaun White in snowboarding. He was something else. Such talent..
THE best hockey game I ever went to was here. It was between the high school all stars and the 'Boston Bruins Geezer Squad' (not their real name but they do a lot of exhibition stuff and the median age is 56).Okay here goes...I have never watched hockey for even 5 minutes in my life (other than movies that feature a team or character on a hockey team). Born in the SW so they just aren't into hockey there. Sure there are teams and all that, just not very popular.
Same with Soccer - we had a group of Latino men at our park today playing soccer. Yes, this is unusual here - again, grew up with that on Sundays in the SW, not the norm in these mountains. It was nice to hear the cheering and laughter and someone utilizing the park that mostly sits vacant (across the street from us)..
