Ski Dubai Cap = Best. Gift. Ever.

My friend Maria went to Dubai recently, and she brought me back the best gift ever: a cap from Ski Dubai! Thanks so much, Maria!

Why yes, that is the flag of the United Arab Emirates on the side of the cap.

Don't believe that there is such a thing as Ski Dubai? Visit

Which Chicago ball club should be my #2?

The Obsessive Skier grew up in the STL watching Lou Brock and Al Hrabosky play at the old Busch Stadium, so he'll always be a St. Louis Cardinals fan. Brock-a-brellas and Stink-eyed Fu Manchus are hard to forget.

But it looks like the Obsessive Skier will be moving to the Chicago area in August. (Yes, he knows that there's not much good skiing in that area. You don't need to bring that up again. Thanks.)

So, which Chicago ball club should be his #2? I'm thinking the Cubs.

It's over.

I knew it was bad, but I wasn't prepared for yesterday's news that this year's ski season is...over.
There, I said it. It's over.

My plans for Memorial Day had been to ski with my family at Arapahoe Basin. But the snow has been melting too fast and skier visits to the resorts are way down, so the resort managers announced yesterday that it's all over this weekend.

Stupid global warming.
