    The laziest way to ski Mt Wash is now available—Auto Rd. to snow fields… Mr. Hildy and elder Hildy kid went up today. Absolute bluebird day…

    Steep Couloirs and Flatspin 360s - Skiing and Boarding 22-23

    We skied there last winter—stayed at the Trailhead Lodge, which is really condos. Gondola to the base village was right outside. Hugely convenient!

    Steep Couloirs and Flatspin 360s - Skiing and Boarding 22-23

    This is a bit of a tangent, but one of my favorite Instagram ski accounts skis in interior BC, and it has piqued my interest. Meet Gary the cat.

    Steep Couloirs and Flatspin 360s - Skiing and Boarding 22-23

    Awesome! Mr. Hildy volunteers for trail maintenance with Granite Backcountry, but he can’t find people to actually ski it with him. He tends to be non-standard in his setup: currently skiing Fey Brothers summer ski with a Meidjo ntn binding and Crispi boots. I know I spelled something wrong there.

    Bruins sign Mitchell Miller to an ELC - now "parting ways"

    Never heard this or the N-word on the playground. And I’m 60 years old, so my playground time was back when something like this would perhaps be more common.

    RIP MikeF

    Yes, so much this. His reports were unbelievably knowledgeable in this funny, offhand way, and they were so happy. I would read his reports in my kitchen in Mass., look out the frosty window at winter, and feel like it was almost time for tshirts and sunscreen.

    2020 Football Team: A Capital Scandal

    2020 Football Team: A Capital Scandal

    Reading through this thread as a woman, I’m not sure how to convey my reaction diplomatically. What should happen is that advertisers exert further pressure to force change. My guess is that they will not. Because it was about women. That’s why. What the heck. The previous story about the...

    Toddler skates

    We also liked using adjustable skates during the rapid foot-growth years.

    Redsoxstiff

    Chatting with Cathy and Bob was always a Bash highlight, and I am deeply sorry to read this news. He was just himself, a nonpigeonhole-able person. There are all too few folks like that around. Sending love.

    Offseason game thread

    Re: pricing. Wellesley residents are supposed to get discount prices, since it’s town-owned land. I remain skeptical, but am crossing my fingers. PSK, I live about five minutes away as well. This is the old St James church property that was in litigation for years. It’s going to have the...

    Offseason game thread

    FWIW, we have a brand-new sports center opening in July with two rinks...the lockers have to be an improvement over Malden....

    PSK

    Agree. But does PSK still have the Civic? Do we need to rent a lawn chair and a Civic and send him north?

    The Washington Redskins cheerleaders and a trip from hell

    I could not agree more wholeheartedly. Which is why I hated that thread on this board about two months ago devoted to ogling world-class women athletes. It all sucks.

    The Washington Redskins cheerleaders and a trip from hell

    I'm missing your point here--in no way was I trying to assign importance. Both things suck. Yes, exactly this. Having said that, I hate the concept of cheerleading, despite how much work and effort and athleticism it takes. It's kind of awful. In all seriousness, have her try martial arts...

    The Washington Redskins cheerleaders and a trip from hell

    I think it varies. One of the articles describes the Saints paying the cheerleaders $14.75 an hour, which is more than minimum wage in Louisiana. (I may not have the numbers right here--I've used up my NYT articles for the month reading this stuff and can't go back to check.) Meanwhile...

    The Washington Redskins cheerleaders and a trip from hell

    I was just debating whether to add this to the "Men Behaving Badly" thread. There is a lot more to the NFL cheerleading situation than the Redskins story, which is, indeed, appalling. The NYT is running a series on how NFL cheerleaders are treated. It's not surprising, and it is horrifying. I...

    The Nation's Tears: Volume II

    See, now this is an important question left unanswered. What was the movie? Was it this one?
