Wallet Card Wednesday - 2

Time to see what I was up to this week with my wallet card.

First, my wallet card decided to look at a late Christmas present that I received.

You might ask, "Why a Xavier Cooper jersey?". I laughed when I got it because I instantly knew. My roommate who bought it for me is a big fan of the Washington State Cougars. During last year's draft he was so excited that the Browns drafted two of their players - Vince Mayle and Xavier Cooper.

There was no way he would switch his support from Dallas to Cleveland, but he was pulling for those two to succeed. (A funny thing is that after Mayle was released, he was signed by the Cowboys.) I appreciate the jersey since I enjoy jerseys of the guys in the trenches.

Xavier Cooper played the last 14 games of the season for the Browns. He had 1.5 sacks, 11 tackles and 8 assists over the season.

After watching football on Sunday, I needed to run an errand. My wallet card decided to check out the weather for me.

Good to see the car not moving as it looks like Kevin Mack is diving away from my snow covered car. There was a light snow still coming down that you can kind of see in the light at the top of the photo.

I've learned to hate snow, and often joke that I should try to move down and join my mom in Arizona, but then I would have to deal with all that immigration paperwork. And really, it snowing out isn't that bad, it is much better than when it is too cold outside to snow!

Lastly, in this week's photos, the wallet card decided to check out one of my winter activities.

Yes, I curl in the winter. And for years I have always curled wearing a Browns jersey. I've played in the odd out of town bonspiel over the years, and had people remember the jersey from previous years. I mean, really, how many Browns fans are there in the Ottawa area that like advertising that fact so openly all the time?


  1. People tell me I'm weird but I get mesmerized by curling every time it's on TV when the Olympics come around. I've always wanted to try it too but the closest place that does it is about an hour away somewhere around downtown Cincinnati. One of these days I'll get down there and give it a whirl.

  2. I hear that from so many friends every Winter Olympics. If you're ever in Ottawa in the winter I can get you out to try it.
