Watching Penguins versus Sharks with Dave Hanrahan, Carl Norum, 4 Nov 2006


Full size
Because I had bought lower level seats from ebay, we went early to check out the warm-up session. I'm waiting here
for Sidney and the team to come out for the warm-up skate.

Paul and Evgeny Malkin. Ha, I have a picture of he and I and YOU don't! That's Marc-Andre Fleury in view as well.

Sergei Gonchar needs to have a good season this year for the Penguins to do well. He's playing pretty well so far.

Carl Norum joined us at the game, along with his cool girlfriend Mickey.

I even managed to drag a non-hockey fan along for the ride - Mr David Hanrahan.

The Sharks would go on to win the game, but not without a little bit of crowd taunting from the Penguins fan. Here's
Dave showing his Sharks true colours.

Climbing with Alex Goldhammer at Mount Diablo State Park, CA


Full size
Here's my buddy Alex Goldhammer at the crimpy goodness that is Mount Diablo.


Full size
This was my first lead since surgery. Alex put me on a 5.9ish crimper called Amazing Face that was all
edging and sweet face climbing. It was sort of like Barbeque the Pope at Smith Rocks, but with a little more option.

In Edmonton visiting Natalia


Full size
I managed to track down some tickets to the Battle of Alberta when I was visiting Natalia. She, of course being
the huge hockey fan, pretty much begged me to take her. Since I'm a nice boyfriend, I obliged.

Edmonton Oilers v Calgary Flames 21 Nov 2006. The Oilers would wind up winning on this night.

Natalia and I after the game.

I also got to visit Danielle in her new hometown of Grande Prairie, AB. She took me around the town,
showed me where she works and lives, and even showed me her cop car. Here she is sitting in a cop car.


Full size
Danielle and I hanging out at her new condo. She's done a really nice job of painting it, putting in new floors
(with help from Mom and Dad), and generally making it her home.

It turns out that Natalia is in love with ribs lately. Here she is getting it all over her hands.
