Beating the Winter and Political Blaas

One of the best ways around here to beat the Winter Blaas is attend a high school basketball game. Preferably in a small gym, packed with firends and neighbors rooting for one team or the other, but knowing just about everyone in the stands and on the court. South Knox at Lincoln last night fit the bill. Cold air outside and a warm friendly atmosphere on the inside. Good fun and good friends on the court and in the stands. I can't even remember who won, but can listen to Dave Young's sports on WZDM 92.1 fm and here at WZDM.com (shamless plug!).
The local basketball game also precluded watching the State of the Union message. It doesn't matter who is making the speech, I can't do it even though I know I should. Thank goodness for high school basketball.
