Skiing Then Watching the Super Bowl
Sunday morning, I woke up around five in the morning and saw some snow falling. It was going to be a good skiing day. I woke up the kids around 7 am. We changed, ate breakfast, then headed to Roundtop. We arrived at the resort around 9 am. The slopes were a bit icy but skiable.
I skied with Đạo, Đán, and Khôi on the double black with moguls four times, but fell three times. It was too icy for me to control my skis. I went to another double black without moguls and did fine. Then hit a few more blacks with Xuân and Hân. By 2 pm, I was exhausted. The fallings didn’t hurt, but they took a toll on me. The kids also wanted to leave so we said goodbye around 3 pm.
The resort wasn’t crowded and I suspected it had to do with the Super Bowl. After we got home, I went over to a friend’s house to watch the game. I didn’t care much about football. I just wanted some good food and a couple of beers. In addition, I wanted to hang out with Anh Tiến. We lived five minutes away, but we hadn’t gotten together in years. I was going to head home after the half-time performance, but I stayed until the end. He explained to me the rules of the game as we watched. He was shocked that I was kind of clueless about football. I never paid attention, but I think I got it now. Then again, I might forget everything when we watch next year’s Super Bowl.
The half-time show was awesome. Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg took me back to the good old days of gangster rap. Queen Mary was as soulful as always. Kendrick Lamar was dope. 50 Cent was alright. Eminem knelt down at the end of his performance. Word!
