THIS Drive Should Be On a Map

SSG does love a scenic drive. And over her vacation there were PLENTY.

Country roads.
Coastal roads.
Roads to the houses of friends.
Roads to the drive thru of Sonic.

But none compare to the road SSG drove on today.

This is SSG's drive into work.

SSG didn't take this picture because ... well ... it's GOOD. So thanks to Google Images and the 100 places it's posted. SSG isn't sure who to credit. But anonymous cameraperson? Well done.

So anyhoo, SSG drives in and out of downtown Portland on this road that parallels the Willamette River. On sunny mornings the paths are filled with bikers and joggers. And almost every afternoon during the summer a festival is either being set up or taken down and SSG wants to yell at the people who take THEIR SWEET TIME walking across the street allowing only one car to turn right on a green signal.

But that isn't what this is about.

THIS is about what was going down today on the grassy area in that photo up there which is known as Tom McCall Waterfront Park.



SSG was driving home when she saw ...


And not just ANY dudes.

But Portland FIREFIGHTER dudes.

How did she know they were firefighters? Because not only were they all HOT. They all wore the telltale navy t-shirts (oh how I heart you navy t-shirts) that said "Portland Fire Dept."

FIREFIGHTERS. Playing. Football.


SSG is PRETTY sure that's exactly what heaven looks like.

(SSG would also like to take this time to apologize to the red Mazda she almost rear ended.)

I'm sure the red mazda was stopped watching the very same thing and would have understood!!

All i can say is travel with a cooler full of ice and water so you can stop and offer refreshments to the nice, hot firemen.
