Ha i'm not surprised if you don't come from LA, i guess that's the feeling across most of the US, I loved it though
Salt Lake eh? The mormon city, haven't they got strict drinking laws there? You'll love Liverpool if that's the case (at the other end of the spectrum )
Donovan is a legend over here, good to hear he's doing well and good luck with the playoff spot
Got a better chance of doing something decent than Everton have at the minute
Ya..liquor laws are whack here. Beer in bars can only be 4.0% ABV (pretty popular in the states to have 6-8% beer). Liquor drinks are capped at 1.5oz per pour. To buy "full strength" beer, any wine or liquor have to go to a state-run liquor store (closed Sundays of course), only 4% beer available in the grocery store.
...But the skiing is world-class. If any of you Evertonians are out this way have a free place to stay right near the mountains. We even get all the matches on TV here
A Xmas drinking holiday is just what the doctor ordered for the GF and I. Can't wait to sit by a roaring fire in the pub and put a few back.
