Snow shovelling tip

Here's a tip that will help keep your hands warm when you're shovelling snow and extend the life of your expensive gloves.

Wear your regular gloves, but pull work gloves over them when shovelling. The work gloves will keep your hands a bit warmer. They will also keep snow off your warm gloves so keep your hands dry.

Also shovelling really wears out the regular gloves quickly. Work gloves are designed to be used with shovels and will not get ripped as easily from the snow shovel.

Football book and video

Here is some good football media I've enjoyed. These will be interesting to both casual and serious football fans. I dare say people who don't care about football at all would enjoy these because they are entertaining and high quality.

A great football book is The Dark Side of the Game: My Life in the NFL, by Tim Green. This is a really good book about what it's like to be on the inside of the NFL as a middle class player. I much enjoyed it and highly recommend.

My wife got me Monday Night Mayhem for Christmas. This was a really enjoyable DVD about the glory years of Monday Night Football in the 1970s. That was the time when people had bumper stickers that said "My boss never asks me to work Monday night."

Unfortunately for me the Cosell era was a bit before my time. Plus the games don't start until 10 PM in Halifax. I'll watch pieces of MNF today. I'm more likely to watch all of the Sunday night game just because it starts earlier.

The MNF video is based on the book of the same title.
