YOU'RE TAKING those first tentative post-Thanksgiving footsteps right now, trying like hell to button your pants while eyeballing that leftover slice of pumpkin pie. Sure, you could keep stuffing your face - really, we won't judge - but you'd probably be better off heading down to the waterfront to check out the Blue Cross RiverRink Winterfest, which opens to the public today at 11 a.m. Winterfest is brought to you by the Delaware River Waterfront...

Outdoor ice skating is returning to a once-popular spot in Camden County. An ice rink is set to open next week, on Black Friday, in Pennsauken's Cooper River Park. The 50- by 70-foot rink will be surrounded by music, strings of lights, and tents selling hot chocolate and pretzels, county officials said. "This is our crown jewel," Camden City Council president Frank Moran said. "We are turning the park into a winter wonderland. " The park was a popular skating location decades ago, county officials said.

An overnight snow slickened area roads, with the worst in South Jersey, but it might prove fast-fleeting. The snow covered barely registered, but was enough to blanket lawns and roads. With a low of 29, temperatures are expected to climb today. However, unexpectedly slick roads could cause problems through at least the early part of the morning commute. A number of accidents were reported overnight in Philadelphia, suburban Pennsylvania and South Jersey. The National Weather Service is calling today for a high of 41 and increased warming the next few days.

I dropped by Darby Township last week with a business proposition for winter-weary residents: I would personally guard their shoveled-out parking spaces from vultures, thieves, and the cops. For now, consider this a one-woman operation. Should demand exceed my free time, I'll round up others to stand sentry while Granny runs to Wawa. We'd work for coffee and tips, I figure, dramatically undercutting the $300 to $1,000 fines that Darby homeowners face under a new ordinance attacking the time-tested practice of setting out plastic patio chairs to mark a minivan's turf.

While Thanksgiving's history, Santa can still relax. 'Cause Dan Hicks has his back. The laid back, vintage swing-styled jazz folkster with the equally flip flair at humor is giving the Claus clan extra reasons to be ho-ho-ho-ing on his new album set "Crazy for Christmas. " And that music's sure to be featured, too, in Hicks' shows tomorrow at Appel Farm Arts and Music Center and next Friday at the Sellersville Theater. Dig how the dude's only half-mad and half-glad that "Somebody Stole My Santa Claus Suit" (and even the pillow off his bed, hmmm)

Marks set in Seattle Thursday's Mariners-Blue Jays matchup was exceptional for the achievements of two men: Jose Bautista of the Jays and the Mariners' Ichiro Suzuki. Bautista banged his major-league-leading 50th home run, becoming the the 26th player in history to reach the 50-home-run mark in a season, and the first since Prince Fielder (50) and Alex Rodriguez (54) did it in 2007. Suzuki got a single and a double to become the first player in history with 10 consecutive 200-hit seasons.

It's seemingly the same story each year when the regular season materializes in the final 2 weeks of December. For all the practices and scrimmages teams try to fit in between Thanksgiving and opening night, there is just something that can only be gained by playing regular-season games. Add in the fact that many programs have players that are coming off the fall season and not only can a lot be learned before the New Year, but in many ways it's the time of the season a coach can get the best grip on the makeup of his team.
