Huge hockey fan. Love it. Nothing better in the world of sports in my opinion: fast, graceful, aggressive, electric; a perfect mix of skill and physicality, of speed and grit, of finesse and power. I've never taken anyone to a live game that didn't come out with at least having had a great time and an appreciation.
Skiing. I love the snow. Born and raised in California, would rather be on the slopes than in the surf any day. Especially Tahoe: mountainside by day, craps table-side by night, hot tubs anytime. I'm not a big gambler, but craps is a lot of fun once you get to learn the game. Poker can be cool too, with friends or at a low-key table in Vegas, but to seriously play takes a level of skill I stopped pretending I have.
Reading is a great way to be OK with not doing anything else. Fiction, non-fiction, doesn't matter. Short stories to epics, essays to volumes. I tend to switch back between a novel and something from which I can learn, depending on the mental energy I'm willing to expend. Don't really have time for TV or cable - Netflix is oppressive enough. I like the idea of sharing samples of what's in our respective queues, just to get an idea of what the other person likes, because they're not usually favorites, which are easy enough to list off and identify ourselves by, but those films and shows we think might become favorites in the future. Like people maybe?
