Zero Chance

Just checking in while global colding kicks our collective butts...not to cast aspersions on Al Gore's theories, but damn if the whole country isn't undergoing some seriously arctic weather. It's been pretty frigid around here for a while and it's about to get worse: the low temp Friday and Saturday is supposed to be zero. Zero! High temps aren't supposed to be much more than the mid-teens. Doesn't make that 15-miler I'm supposed to do Saturday sound promising.

Sad news from Hollywood today with the death of Ricardo Montalban at the age of 88. Best known as Mr. Rourke from Fantasy Island, he'll always be remembered by nerds everywhere as Khan in "Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan." But he also gave the world this awesome Chrysler Cordoba commercial. which was parodied for years afterward. Rest in peace, Ricardo.

I grew up in the '70s, when the hockey brawl was commonplace. They just don't happen anymore. Which is why this minor league hockey brawl is so ridiculous and amazing. Hopefully nothing like this happens at my skate tonight.
