It is almost the official start of Spring and the weather has begun to change for the better. That can mean only one thing: the beginning of lawn shoveling season. It's that magical time of year when retired men from all walks of life try and establish their neighourhood superiority through the lack of lawn snow. It's the geriatric version of the dick measuring contest.
Every season brings a new contest: Summer ... the cleanest car; Fall ... the least amount of leaves; Winter ... the cleanest driveway.
Look around your neighbourhood, watch the old retired guys as they shovel, wash and rake, jockeying for the big one like Leno vs O'Brien.
