I had my picture taken with Red Auerbach in Boston back in June.
It was that kind of year.
Unexpected trip to my favorite place on earth thanks to the kindness and generosity of JB and countless other great people combined with the Three Amigos Wandering Spectacular to Florida and Georgia helped make 2010 one for the ages.
It also greatly lessened the sting of turning 40 and the inevitable collateral damage of also turning officially middle aged.
My wife still loves me, my kids haven't killed me yet, I've got 2 great friends (one being a certifiable lunatic and the other just plain certifiable not withstanding) and the Red Sox have loaded up the Gatling Gun for the upcoming season.
Here's to 2011 being even better.
