Phil Who?

Phil Who?

By: Tony White So, Punxsutawney Phil claims we’re in for another 6 weeks of winter.  Honestly, are you surprised? Don’t hate me for admitting this, but I like winter.  The snow, the ice – I love it all. After you’ve built your requisite snow man, had your obligatory snowball fight with the neighbor, and worn the snow off the hill from so many trips down, what’s next? I’m sure with the Winter Olympics starting up, some of your inner Kristi Yamaguchi, Apolo Anton Ono, Shaun White and Lindsey Vonns are aching to show themselves. Once that thrill has worn off then what? Or should I say, once you get real with your true abilities, then what? Well, here you go – Mother Nature Network has compiled a list of 12 Wacky Winter Sports. I have to say these don’t all seem so wacky to me.  I must admit however, not all of these are for the faint of heart or untrained.  Ice climbing is likely not for the first time adventurer. However, the one called Skijoring… ummm…. been there, done that.  We didn’t compete, nor did we know it was called Skijoring. My cousins and I being pulled on a toboggan behind my uncle’s pick-up truck through the snow-covered countryside…we just called it fun. And what about Shovel Racing?  I’m ready to find a spot for the next round of snow? Is anybody up for a match? Have you tried (or are willing to try) any of these wacky winter sports?
