Back from Maui
Tan, Somewhat rested, but NEVER ready to return to cold and snowy Iowa.And the scientific community is united in that fact
Leaving Iowa for Maui in the winter is one of the best decisions I've ever made.
It used to come in third, behind marrying Chris and moving to the Not So Vast Right Wing Ranch
, but now it's probably tied for second if not solely in second by itself.
I couldn't even escape the snow, as Haleakalā
received a couple inches during our stay.
It was great to get three Packer playoff wins and move onto the Super Bowl, especially over Jay Quitter and the Chicago Bad News Teddy Bears.
My brief brush with fame this trip came on the final leg.Chris Spielman
was on our flight from Chicago to Des Moines, he was the guest speaker for the John Stoddard Rally Against Cancer
, I told him I respected how he played the game and I enjoyed him as a commentator now.
There was a guy on the same flight wearing an Ohio State windbreaker, a few rows back from Spielman, but he didn't seem to recognize the former Buckeye great.
Last night, Dave Price
made the mistake of having Spielman's wife still among the living.
Stefanie Spielman lost her battle with breast cancer in November 2009.
