So I walked over to Riverfront Park to purchase my 2011-12 Ice Palace pass. Opening day is tomorrow.
My picture on my pass this year looks as if it was taken during a disfiguring teleportation accident. But I'm looking forward to the season.
I don't think I can take a shot at being first on the ice tomorrow, as has been my off-and-on tradition. Got a lot to do Wednesday. But I will get over there soon and reacquaint myself with the fact that riding a bike doesn't totally prepare you for skating.
My former colleague Susan English introduced me to the Ice Palace more than 20 years ago. Her attitude was "Isn't it cool to have this right here in the midst of downtown?"
Yes. It is.
