Raul Ibanez Praises Inventor of Sleds

“I jumped on one of those little sleds,” Ibanez said, “and went down a hill. It’s brilliant. Whoever came up with that–phenomenal.”

–Raul Ibanez

That would be Ancient Egyptians, Oseberg Vikings, and British Explorers.  Yay!  Free history lesson!  Tuesdays rule.

Yes, the bleak winter wasteland that is the northeast,  after fooling human beings out of their holes to bask in what became extremely temporary warm climates, is not a source of everyone’s bitter angst and cabin fever.  Some folks go out there and enjoy the season; playing games, building snowmen, and all of it without a single complaint. It’s like they don’t even know how to be correctly miserable in accordance with what time of year it is.

Raul Ibanez has not seen many winters, which is an ironic thing to say, considering how many jokes about him being old exist.  But he apparently celebrates the season with more fervor then your average shut-in because of the infrequency with which he’s seen it.

Anyways, just a quick update on Raul.  He’s having fun out there.  That is all.  Go about your morning.
