I left for California on Wednesday to visit my son Marty and his fiance' Ann for a week. They are getting married next Memorial Day, so Ann's parents also flew out there as we are going to do some food tasting, see the wedding site and just relax for a week.
Ann is running in a triathlon to battle cancer on Sunday, so I will make a huge sacrifice and miss most of my watching football on Sunday. I will try to keep track of my fantasy football on my i-phone. Then we are going to the Hollywood Bowl (I thought it was to watch a football game) on Sunday night to listen to music, so I can't watch Sunday night football either.
Before I jump back into prep sports, I wanted to share some of my vacation thoughts with you.
For those of you who know me, I have a son (Marty) in Burbank, who is a film editor (Shield, Wipeout, Fear Factor), so my wife Kathy and I took a week to go see him, his fiance Ann and our future in laws - Cheryl and John. Marty and Ann are getting married next Memorial Day, so we went out to see the facility, do taste testing for cake and food (I passed both tests) and pick out flowers (I passed on the second visit after dying through the first one). Looking at flowers for me would be like me talking fantasy football to my in-laws, son and wife - they would stare at me with their eyes glazed over.
