Tim Tebow A Smashing Success #Baseball

Tim Tebow
Don't look now but Tim Tebow is on a 10-game hitting streak, batting .360 and last night hit his first walk-off homerun for the St. Lucie Mets.

He can't play quarterback in the NFL, they said. He went on to take a Broncos team that was 3-17 before he started to the playoffs and beat the Pittsburgh Steelers while setting a playoff passing record that might never be beat: Most Yards Per Completion (31.6). Take that.

He can't play baseball, they said. He's doing it. Tim Tebow is having a ball and was showered with Gatorade by his teammates when he arrived at home plate last night after his game-winning homer.

It's time for people to realize that you never want to bet against Tebow.

Tebow is selling out the stadiums every where he goes. Brace yourselves, it's #TebowTime

Alpine Slide & Hot Springs Pool Glenwood Springs

My trip to Glenwood Springs, Colorado started with an Amtrak Colorado Zephyr train ride from Union Station in Denver to Glenwood Springs which took almost 7 hours, whooo! Long ride but worth it.

The Moffat tunnel is the nation's longest train tunnel at 6.2 miles names after Colorado railroad pioneer David Moffat.

The hot springs pool is interesting. There is that sulfurous smell (you get used to it) but the water is soooo warm. Especially for being outdoors in the middle of the rocky mountains. The hot hot springs pool is 104°!

Now on to the Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park which is an amusement park on top of a mountain along with natural caves to tour. First we started with a cave tour.

But in order to get up to the caves and the amusement park you first have to take the tram up to the top of the mountain.

Tram starting point
Here's a view when the tram gets toward the top of the mountain.

One crazy ride is the swings. Not because the swings are crazy or anything but when they go off the side of the mountain it's like you are flying because it's over a 2,000 foot drop to the river and land below. The view is AMAZING!! The same can be said of the Cliffhanger roller coaster which is right above the swings and when you're at the top of it you get the same amazing view for a second.

I rode the Alpine Slide more than any other ride. It was my favorite. Here's a video.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Official Teaser Trailer! #LukeSkywalker

It's finally here! The trailer for Star Wars Episode VIII The Last Jedi has arrived and I have to tell you, I can't wait for more! The trailer confirms the return of Rey, Kylo Ren, Poe, BB-8, Finn and of course, Luke Skywalker, who's voice is the first one we hear telling Rey to "breath, just breath."

The most chilling aspect is near the end when Luke says, "I only know one true. It's time for the end." Oh snap! What? This is actually not much of a surprise. However, consider this from The Force Awakens. "If Skywalker returns, the new Jedi will rise." ―Supreme Leader Snoke to Kylo Ren and General Armitage Hux.

So why does Luke want the Jedi to end? That's the million dollar question right? Luke's journey to search the history of the Jedi has led him to some interesting conclusions. We know the chosen one was supposed to bring balance to the Force. Does this balance mean between Light and Dark side or something else?

I think the best bet is that Luke is the last of the Jedi as we know it and he trains Rey in a new direction based on everything he has learned. My biggest hope for this film are two things - 1. That Luke Skywalker is just awesome, Force awesome lightsaber awesome you name it and 2. That Luke doesn't die, especially at the hands of Kylo Ren aka Ben Solo.
