It’s Be Kind to Pia Day
Our spies, who are everywhere, tell us that cranky people have been hollering at Pia “The Ski Goddess” Reynaldo for a mistake we made – not her. Let’s be real clear about this: Knock it off before we hire a couple wranglers to stampede a herd of grouchy geldings through your living room and leave meadow muffins on your coffee table. For the uninitiated, Pia rides herd on the Colorado Ski Museum/Ski Hall of Fame, and besides all the seriously cool stuff they have there, it’s worth a trip to the Ski Museum just to bask in her glow. Grown men have been known to walk barefoot through the snow to genuflect in her shadow.
If we hear that one more person was unpleasant to Pia, we’re gonna come lookin’ for you – and we know where you live.
You did good, Panthers
Coach Lopez phoned up Town Talk Towers to tell the universe how proud he is of his team. They had a great season, and fell just one win short of the Super Bowl, which is more than you can say for the Denver Broncos.
