Summit Up 4-1-13: One killer candy hangover

Summit Up
Special to the Daily/Bill Linfield

Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column that’s nursing a killer jellybean hangover. They’re worse than wine hangovers because jellybeans have more sugar.


We definitely overindulged in all the Easter goodness yesterday, from jellybeans to deviled eggs to rather grim lessons in self-sacrifice, but what the heck? It’s only once a year right? We hope your holiday was very merry, or hoppy, or whatever they say for this one as well.

Today we’re trying to figure out what the new protocol is for cheating on our bracket, now that the whole production has gone digital this year, because with all these upsets (WTF Florida Gulf Coast University? Nobody has ever even heard of you!) we are pretty much fudged and we really needed that pool money for, well, fudge and, frankly, more jellybeans. We might have a problem. There are steps for addiction to seasonal candy right?

Which reminds us, if anybody out there actually picked FGCU to go all the way, give us a call. We’d really like to hire you to buy our scratch tickets from now on.

Folks, we are now down to a handful of skiable days left before the relay of resort closures begins with Keystone this weekend, Breckenridge and Copper to follow next weekend and the Legend, as always, bringing up the rear sometime in June. We hope you’re out there enjoying the sunshine and corn and polishing up your hiking boots and mountain bikes for the next round of outdoorsy-activeness. In the meantime, we’ll be here, filling the space and living the dream. We out.
