    Game day for my son and his teammates. The 5A state title on the line. He is at morning walk through meetings right now.

    He is pretty excited but he feels more prepared to deal with the enormity of today than last week. Hopefully West kicks the crap out of Mahtomedi early so he can get some playing time late in the game.

    Go Scarlets!

    A high school friend’s son is big into 80s nostalgia and talks a lot of trash about being good at video games from that era. I’m going to have to see him sometime and teach him a painful lesson that my generation owns the Atari 2600

    I was more early arcade (fam refused to buy us home consoles). So, Ms Pac Man, or my specialties: Galaga and Tempest.

    Invested lots of quarters in those Ms. Pac Man machines. Also favored that golf one where you played holes on famous courses. Loser bought the next round.

    College years, tUMD had a small arcade, about 5-6 of us played Street Fighter II. Winner stayed, challenger paid. Lots of fun, and had good friendships because of it.

    Watched this with my kids over Thanksgiving. Even I was surprised at how much there was before the NES and GameBoy.

    I still have my NES with a handful of games, I should pull it out and show the kids, but I don’t want it wrecked. We had an Atari 7800 too and no idea where that went. Family friends had ColecoVision which was probably the most fun one I had played of all of them.

    It was NHL93 and MarioKart in the dorm for us. The wars were pretty epic.

    We also evolved into Doom! On the PC. It I basically sucked at that

    Post-college, had 3 other friends, and would play 4-player Genesis NHL (was it 1995 that intro’d the 4 player?). Tossed our driver’s licenses in a hat, drew teams. real-life checking allowed during play. :D

    Thinking of all the systems over the years, Jaguar, Dreamscape, 3D0, Neo Geo, the list goes on…

    Skating at Rockefeller Plaza. At Christmas time. Definite bucket list.

    Even if the skates were bricks and could not have cut pudding.

    Added bonus: The couple getting married at center ice (Yep!) were from Minnesota!

    We skated there that weekend the Gophers were out to play at Madison square garden. Those skates are TERRIBLE! I consider myself a good skater on hockey skates, but these were some weird rigid figure skate style boots that were dull as hell. I looked like I’d never skated before in my life! I regretted not packing my own.

    But yes, a very cool experience and highly recommend!

    :lol: I’ll just be the devils advocate here…you have a bunch of people, many on skates for the first time. Razor sharp blades and a novice are a recipe for blood on the ice! Even a parent lacing up their kid would slice up their hands. I can just picture the trauma :shock:

    Dull skates mean less liability. Sad but true.

    Brother, sister, wife and spouses are scheduled to visit Hawaii in two months. Will the snow melt by then, or should we bring our ski equipment?

    I got a letter today from MnDot reminding me that my license is expiring. My birthday was 5 days ago, so my license was already expired. I wanted to get the real ID. I got the necessary paperwork and went to the license bureau in Lakeville. There was no wait. I was figuring that I might get my license renewed with some hassle, but little chance of getting the real ID. In less than 15 minutes, I walked out with my temporary license. They said I would receive my real-id license in 2 weeks. No hassles, no issues.

    My in and out for Real ID was similar. Less than 10min. BUT… It took about 8 weeks to get the actual ID. I wish it was only 2 weeks.

    Not sure what the processing time for RealID is, but I applied for an Enhanced DL the end of September, and it was about 6 weeks to actually get it. I’d guess RealID is a little faster, but don’t know.

    My 18yo daughter helped me one time last winter, claims she hurt her shoulder and is still milking it. Even went to the chiropractor a couple times. My wife says I can’t make her help me any more. Well played.

    I bet your daughter isn’t a hockey player!

    And I bet your wife never helps shovel…

    Daughter does not play hockey. Wife helps out occasionally so she can say she helps out all the time.

    Haha our daughter is now married and lives with her husband, so I am left to take care of anything outdoors at our place, as my wife handles most anything inside. That arrangement has worked out pretty well for us so far, but like most married couples we do have our “sources of contention” lol.

    Is “brodie” a MT term? I’ve heard several other terms but not that one.

    I know this is in the wrong thread, it similar theme. We also do inside/outside work. I do almost all of the cooking though.

    Anyway, I wish laundry and cleaning had the same priorities that shoveling, yard work and eating dinner has…

    Since Greyeagle and I are about the same age, I also have never heard of the term Brodies. I call them donuts and another term that would have to be bleeped here :wink:

    I’ve heard brodie before, but it referred to any kind of silly or stupid stunt, not specifically whipping shitties.

    It’s Grey Duck.

    It’s a pop.

    It’s a water fountain.

    It’s an ATM.

    It’s hot dish.

    We vacation up north.

    We say goodbye for 30 minutes, things could be worse, Prince is the GOAT, that story your neighbor just told was interesting and the Packers will always suck.

    Out of town on vacay, 6 to 7 hours from home. Run into someone at the bar who literally lives within walking distance of your house. 😂

    It is such a small world sometimes.

    Knowing we likely will now not have to quarantine for Christmas again this year.

    My son had to go to the Doctor because he’s had an awful cough again of late and now he has a runny nose and even a low grade fever. He’s probably had 6 COVID tests this year but this is the first time we were really worried about him testing positive because the symptoms just felt different. He came back negative for multiple things so he must just have what we used to refer to as the crud.

    The crud is going around. Both my nieces just went through it.

    I feel like I’ve had the crud for three days every two weeks since effing July. This kid better be worth it.

    We kept my son home last week because he had the crud. We had him tested twice, negative results, so we concluded it was the crud. He usually gets a bad cold every winter so this was his for the season. Glad it is done before the weekend for Christmas and next week when we go see the in-laws.

    If you never want to be sick again just go be a childcare teacher. They have to have bulletproof immune systems

    My older son has Influenza A. Not much fever, but a lot of coughing and chest congestion. He’s felt pretty crappy since Monday morning. The Flu is bad this year since the dominant strain (H3N2) wasn’t covered in the vaccine.

    We’ve had to cancel Christmas plans for the 3rd year in a row. He also had the flu 2 years ago and last year was COVID.

    I think my system is slowly getting there. Each time it is a bit more mild, and I notice others having much worse symptoms. I basically am getting hit with a really mild cold over and over again, instead of a big one every once in a blue moon.

    That big one though is a doozy. The first couple years after Paige was born gave me 2-3 bouts of something that was just awful.

    If you have kids 8 years apart you’ll learn that your body doesn’t recognize some of it from the first time around. That’s been fun for the once a year sickness that puts me down for the count
