the scenery is really ugly within 15-20 miles of the city
Not to be a super-nit, but Red Rocks Canyon is just outside Vegas and is stunning. In fact, it has become one of the top "winter destination" rock climbing areas in the world. (BTW - I love Boston.)
Also, good luck Dynasty I hope this year you break through in a big way.
yup, red rock canyon is sweet, and hoover dam is one of my favorite places in the world, as strange as that may sound (i have my reasons). as far as most of my stuff being meaningless that is completely untrue. A) what are you going to argue that the wheel is a meaningless invention? it is the foundation for what we have today in more advanced tires. all of these Boston firsts set the foundation to build on. B) these things have influenced the history of Boston and made it such a beautiful and cultured city today. sure it doesn't make the golf course any better because it was the first one, but the area around it is what it is today because of it and it's importance to golf in America (plus, it's home to the greatest American Ryder cup in golf history).
plus we just got the big ticket (kevin garnett). Dare I say world series, NBA championship and superbowl all in one year?
