James Webler
writes that he went to
the Super Bowl, “which as a Giants fan was very
rewarding. My brother in-law and I ended up pay-
ing as much for parking as we did for two nights.
I also went to Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final in
hopes that I would see the Cup celebration. So
there is at least one sporting event that remains
on my bucket list.”
