I was born in a crossfire hurricane.
It's hard for me to watch local high school football in Alaska, for a few reasons. The main reason is the ridiculously short season. This past season started on August 10 and ended on September 29. The playoffs ended on either October 12/13 or October 20, depending on classification. For someone used to football in the South (where the playoffs don't even begin until November), it's just far too compressed for my liking, almost as if the NFL played a half season of games and limited playoff berths to just the NFC and AFC Championships. I know North Pole made it to the playoffs this year, but dropped in the first round. I know some people in North Pole, so I might call them up and see what they know about that player.
Moved to Seattle in '89 and stayed for 13 years then moved back to Cleveland. One of our big regrets was not getting to AK. Do you always fly into and out of Seatac? I agree with you about Vancouver and Toronto. Toronto is one of the cleanest cities I've ever visited.

When I was in college, I flew through SeaTac all the time. Back then I actually liked the airport, but oddly enough I can't stand the place now that they have completed all the renovations to the concourses. Call me crazy, but my four favorite airports are Salt Lake, Atlanta, Phoenix (Sky Harbor), and Minneapolis. I hate O'Hare, DFW, and Houston - all of them have serious traffic control issues once you're on the ground (or trying to leave it). When I fly down to Tennessee now, it's generally Anchorage-SLC-ATL-Tennessee.
Great job, tntoak!
I think we all learned a lot about the Great White North. I was amazed to know there really is a community called North Pole. I guess when the kids send letters to Santa, they go there.
They actually do go to the North Pole post office...
