Sunday is Breakaway DayThe Vail Breakaways women’s hockey team play their home opener at 6 p.m. Sunday against the Aspen Mother Puckers. If you look through the Vail Undressed calendar, you’ll find the best team picture in the history of the photographic process. Buy billions of these calendars, and display the aforementioned page somewhere your wife won’t see it. It depicts stunning, athletic women with sticks and blades, which makes it WAY better than the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition.Ah, the accoladesJust yesterday we went on in some length about how white people living in the Vail area are not allowed to sing the blues about lift lines, or anything else. We also took a direct shot at the idiots who were letting people on Chair 5 get nailed with ice balls, which they then lobbed into the crowd in the lift maze below. Returning fire, we asserted during a KZYR radio appearance Wednesday morning, is as good a use as exists for those missing .50 caliber bullets someone stole out of the back of a pickup truck last week.We got this reaction from J. Friestad:”Whoever writes Town Talk should be tied up under Chair 5 so that peoplecan pummel that person with ice balls!!!!!!What a crappy column!”We also got a bit of less-than-adoration from a local who lasered us for Sunday’s “10 More Reasons to Hate the French.” We stand accused of rewriting history (someone has to, besides the freedom-hatin’ liberals) and making sport of “ethnic” groups like the French and the Belgians. We were surprised that to learn that everyone in France is a member of a particular ethnic group.Apparently, snottiness is a binding ethnic charactistic.We, the Titans of Town Talk Towers, whose true identity as Randy Wyrick is a closely guarded government secret, can certainly feel the love in the room. Can’t you?Be a bus riderThe guys at KTUN will be riding the bus on Friday, and are willing to attract you with free food and coffee to ride it with them. It’s part of ECO Transit’s Try Transit Week.
