If you read this blog, you already know how I feel about the overcrowding on Mount Everest as well as the irresponsible climbing by amateurs and for-profit climbing outfits, so I can't help but pass along this story. Talks about all those things in the whole Nepal/Tibet Himalayan region, not just Everest. Read the story here.

NFL, please save me from MLB!

Thank God the NFL season is beginning anew and the New York Giants are playing tonight because the Yankees are trying to give me a stroke. Approaching the end of the season, in first place for 84 days straight, and they decide to get tired and have injuries and just, in general, be old and are now tied for first with the Baltimore Orioles. The Orioles!!!I can feel my blood pressure rising just by writing that...

So I'm more than thrilled that tonight, the Giants will be playing, and not only that, they will be playing the Dallas Cowboys, and hopefully, the Giants will kick ass, because I like when they kick ass, and I especially like when they kick Dallas' ass.

Go Big Blue!
