It’s the best big city in America to be from.
Golf, motorcycles, cooking, snowboarding (when there’s snow), travel, music
People say I’m a real…
Snowboard in the morning; golf in the afternoon. Second place: bottomless brunch outside.
Five-way tie for first. And constantly changing. Denver’s food scene is a little overrated, but the drinks are great in a lot of places.
I have two holes-in-one, both over 200 yds.
I have volunteered to help economically disadvantaged people keep their pets healthy and I have coached kids on how to interview for college scholarships.
Dirt bike down the Baja Peninsula.
When money doesn’t guide your decisions.
I would have become a chef.
Be a better standardized test taker. I would have been a great lawyer.
Solo motorcycle rides across the desert, backcountry camping for a month in Glacier National Park, applying nail polish to a woman’s toes.
JFK and Nixon at the same time. That era of American politics remains the most fascinating and both men were as shrewd as they were scandalous. The stories would be amazing.
About 10 years ago, I started putting the Thanksgiving turkey in the smoker. Nobody was too confident I would pull it off, so I agreed to cook a second turkey in the oven in case things went awry. At the moment of truth, about 10 people were staring over my shoulder – after I pulled the smoked turkey off the heat – to watch me carve. When dinner was over, the smoked turkey was reduced to a meatless skeleton and hardly anyone touched the oven bird.
My first concert was Rush in 1980. Enough said. But the best was the first Lollapalooza in 1991. Jane’s Addiction, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Nine Inch Nails, Rollins Band… epic.
LA Confidential by James Ellroy (the novel) or Hemingway’s Paris writings. Those were two periods of time in which it would have been fun to mix it up.
Super speed, like the Flash. In the comics, besides him zipping around, everything around him would slow down. Besides fighting crime, I would totally use that power for monetary gain, specifically playing baseball. You could sit on curve balls all day and have a Hall of Fame career.
