Musings on music, sports, life in general from Quincy, Illinois.

January, a cold-hearted witch at times, slowly releases her grip today.

The ice at South Park has been fantastic for more than a week, almost a record. But this morning the top half inch was a slushy mess, and Curtis Creek skating is likely done for the year.

Despondent, I headed north to another favorite surface. This one is tucked back on the north side of town, and the quarter-inch crusty layer of snow kept it protected.

It's a beautiful thing, gliding around a large patch of ice, and a great workout to boot.

We'll see if it's any good tomorrow.

QND Trivia tonight. I've decided Rock A. Bye, Chuck Otte and I are the Dr. Johnny Fevers of our team.

Rodney, what gives? Thought the trivia was supposed to be about media teams winning. The "Ghetto Fabulous" Copper Miner's team wins! And we weren't even cheating!

Tell the WGEM/QNI team, 2nd place is just the first loser (according to the late Dale Earnhardt).

Yes, it was the banana boat truck driver of doom that came through for us with the Kansas lyrics that put us over the top at QND trivia.

He was a half hour late, thanks to technical difficulties ( that he could have helped with) it did not matter.

We were a team of destiny (as long as the beer supply held out)

RH said...

Nope, the trivia contest was NOT about media teams winning .... just as long as those radio guys didn't win. Of course Ghetto Fabulous won, what doesn't the guy know about music trivia?

WGEM team definitely cheated.

Not enough 80s questions!

Actually it was a good time as always.

When I used to compete in the QHS Quiz Bowl team's trivia fund-raiser, the WGEM team was always out the door in the first round. The high school teachers' team was called "home by noon," and they always lived up to that title too.
