    Since today is today, i took my car to work, which will help protect me from the drunken wifebeaters
    in their SUVs, fleeing the police after The Big Game.

    but tomorrow i'll be back in the saddle.

    I heard on our local news media how there are so many traffic accidents right after the SuperBowl.
    Almost scared me off, too. But it didn't. <w>

    I've also heard how Friday PM rush hours are a bad time, too.

    IME, in Vancouver, it's when the bars & nightclubs close that we've gotta really watch out. A couple
    of hours after that, and it's the most peaceful, wonderful, magical time.

    cheers, Tom

    I did a 66-mile ride Sunday. I, too, was a little concerned about how many drunks there would be
    out, but I figured it was pretty safe that the dangerous period would be AFTER the game.

    It was great. You could start seeing the roads clearing out by around
    4:30 or 5. There was a little bit of fast traffic right before the start of the game, probably folks
    who were afraid they'd miss the kickoff, but then the streets were deserted.

    Fortunately, I was back home by around 7:30.

    There was a game? [1]

    It was a nice and sunny out for a bit, so I took it as a sign to take a short ride around the lake.
    Traffic was nice, there was some nice scenery [2], and no discourteous people on the road.

    After I got back, my wife was acting freaky [3], so I said unto her "Go Forth and have Sushi, take a
    book to comfort thee!" I just hung about with my daughter cooking dinner and capering like an insane
    gibbon for her. When my wife came back from her alone time, she was much happier.

    [1] I'm mostly serious. Mostly.
    [2] Sunlight glinting off the water, rainbows, that sort of thing.
    [3] Our small child was very demanding Sunday. [4]
    [4] Cute though.
