2005: Day One

Sunny and 65 here in Arizona. Why be anywhere else?

I saw a factoid on Food TV this afternoon: the average American eats 34 donuts per year. Last year, I think I had three, so someone ate 31 of my donuts.

Speaking of food, the Tostitos® Fiesta Bowl is in town and we ran into a slew of Utah fans in Old Town Scottsdale. Utah is playing the Pitt Panthers (who haven’t had a good team since Dan Marino was the QB). The Utes generally looked like they don’t get to the big city very much--lots of folks in overalls looking somewhat puzzled at New York coal-fired pizza. Not much in the way of beer sales today.
