    New Orleans Sports & Outdoors

    My first REAL professional football game (I had been to one pre-season game prior) was on December 4, 2011 - Detroit Lions vs. New Orleans Saints at the Superdome.

    Want to raise from the water like James Bond and fly? Then this sport might be something for you. It is called Jetpack. One needs to wear something that looks like a rocket back pack with 2 water jet pipes. Seawater is pumped as the propellant. It's quite futuristic and funny to watch.

    Snorkeling at Los Arcos, Baya Banderas, was a lot of fun, although colder than we had expected. We had no exposure suit, so we didn't stay in as long as we might have otherwise.

    The Pro Bowl itself was great fun. Even though I'm not a big football fan, I do watch and so it was thrilling to watch Peyton Manning and Tom Brady warming up side by side, throwing to recievers, or to see T.O. running by and making everyone cheer everytime he came in sight. My daughter and her friends had a blast performing at halftime and...

    Ottawa Sports & Outdoors

    Truly the most absurdly located NHL building imaginable - at the extreme west end of Ottawa beyond the suburbs. Why? When most new arenas were being constructed in city centres during the 1990s, Ottawa's new arena was not following suit. I believe the biggest reason for this was to be more than 120 miles from the Bell Centre in Montreal. I hope in...

    I would be remiss if I did not pay homage to my childhood heroes of the 80's, the University of Miami Hurricanes Football program.

It is safe and sturdy, however it is a...
