Bibione Photos



For the last 15 years I've been hearing how great Paganello, the monster beach tournament in Italy over Easter, is. It's not bad. Bibione, however, is better. It's more of a social atmosphere and less of a destination. People are there to play, relax on the beach and have fun -- not to check it off their ultimate bucket list. Of course, having checked Paga off my ultimate bucket list, I'm free to sneer.

Anyway, Bibione is one of the top 5 ultimate experiences of my life, without a doubt. If we'd finished 9th instead of 8th, it would've been bizarrely perfect. We had a blast, lost a minimum number of games, and I was on an unbelievable roll -- off the field. I was the comedy equivalent of Larry Bird in the '86 playoffs. Unfortunately, Like Larry Legend, I choked badly in my follow-up in the 'dorf.

Check out the photos at jtingermany.shutterfly.com -- it's the Bibione 2008 album.

Hey JT,
I just heard about a Pulitzer Prize winner by Junot Diaz called
The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao and thought you and or Steve would enjoy the novel.
I haven't read it yet but comments from other readers and critics lead me to believe that sci-fi ( Dune loving sci-fiers in particular ) would enjoy the book.
By the way the guy in the speedo in the pic above is a little piece of photoshop waiting to happen. I thought perhaps it was you ... the beard and hair, but your other recent photos show much shorter hair so I think it was just a passerby...?... after the elf outfit though I suppose anything is possible for you to try out at least once.

Thanks for the tip! I will check out the book.

As for the speedo, that would be a no. I'm enjoying European life, but I have to draw the line at that level of assimilation!

I'll try to get more pictures of my loveliness online so that there is no further confusion!
