I love our western sunsets.
I wake up early Saturday morning to stupidly fantastic news that one of my buddies, Ben Thomsen, came 2nd!!!!!! in the Sochi World Cup Downhill!!!!!!! Here is his sick run.
So I go up the hill, and while I am standing in the lift line I see this sign.
Up close, you can see it says "Congratulations Ben Thomsen Soshi World Cup Downhill 2nd.". Me, being the completely sarcastic and intelligent human being I am, notice that Sochi is spelt wrong. So my conversation with the very serious lifty went as followed.
Mick:"Ya, you know you spelt Thomsen wrong, there's actually a 'P' in there." (I WAS KIDDING!)
Lifty: "What? Are you him?"
Mick: "Ya, I flew in from Russia this morning..."
The lifty then gives me a questionable chuckle.
I get back to the bottom of the lift after doing a run or two, AND THEY CHANGED HIS NAME TO THOMPSEN! Wow.... I got the delightful opportunity to tell them of my stupid wit, and that I was really joking them, because they actually spelt Sochi wrong...
Anyways. After a very therapeutic day of solo skiing, I decided to join some friends at the T-Bar & Grill.
The T-Bar, the only bar in the world where it's acceptable to order a hot chocolate (with Baileys) at 9pm. But all in all, its a seriously fun place to rock out!
