so these people jump into a freezing cold lake

to raise money for special olympics - i tried to be smart and get in the water to take the picture, and i was doing ok until a blinding pain from the freezing water overtook my wimpy body and i decided to take the easy way out.

this is a long way from swimming on south beach just a week ago.

i heart florida

and palm trees - they make for great background elements.

if james nachtwey worked on south beach

he would have taken a picture of josh ritchie like this.

fist bump with joe

so i'm on the road back from syracuse and was sent later that day down to sunny florida to work on a story on joe lieberman campaigning for john mccain. nice to get out of the cold for a bit - it's so weird as each time i walk outside i keep thinking it's going to be cold when i step outside and instead i'm greeted with a nice warm breeze

this area has been fascinating - i've never been down here before and it's A LOT different than new england.

i have to say though that if i lived down here i'd have to walk around with 100 spf sunscreen over every pore of my pale skin.

so anyhoo - here's a shot of lieberman giving a fist bump to a fellow jew at a jewish deli in aventura, florida.

on the road with bball

went to syracuse for the uconn wmn bball game - here's a shot -

and i recommend going to dinosaur barbeque for anyone who ever passes through here. the gyro shop down the street from the campus, not so much.

i never learned how to ski - the only time i went was when i blew out my knee in high school. i think i was trying to impress this girl and i told her i was ready to ski when in fact i couldn't even stop. you can guess how that worked out.
