Sports, Sports, Sports.....

More specifically - Broncos, Rammies, Nuggets and Avalanche...... With Broncos Training Camp starting today, for me this means the beginning of non-stop sports season. I will be participating in 2 (count 'em - 2) fantasy football leagues; I'm sure my buddy Pat Angello will be doing his Football Pick 'Em (of which I dominated most of the season - then I bragged I was winning and lost my ass instead); and I will be lucky enough to have some sports-related something to watch on TV. The Rockies are still on, but they aren't winning as much, so I'm not watching as much (plus, baseball isn't my most favorite sport).

I'm all stoked for the CSU/CU football game - got my tickets lined up, and I will be at Invesco Field in my Green and Gold - hopefully my Rams will put the smackdown on the Buffalo-chips this year.....what a great way to start the season, yes? And don't bother giving me crap - I won't take or lose - RAMS RULE!!!

I keep forgetting that the Broncos did really well last year...apparently losing to the eventual Super Bowl champions caused that fact to erase itself from my mind. But with the new acquisitions, maybe a funny-shaped football trophy would be in order? And with the drafting of this Jay Cutler dude, what does that mean for Bradlee (CSU alum, for those not in the know..)

Finally, what's with the Avs? I don't think I will recognize them at all ('cept for Joe Sidekick, and he's starting to be in the "older than dirt" category..... Guess I'll just have to wait and see.

Brushes With Fame

Ok, so it's taken me forever to post again....bear with me! ;-)

So I was thinking the other day - how many times have I had a "brush with fame"? Lessee....when I first started dating the Bohunk in Ft. Fun, I got "picked up" on by the lead singer of Fishbone (we went to see the band at Fort Ram, the Bohunk was in the bathroom and the band was on a break). Christmas-time 2005 I met and had my picture taken (w/ my cameraphone) with 2 of the members of Barenaked Ladies (unfortunately, one was not Ed...Fortunately, the other one was Steven). But I think my best brush was March 2005 when I got to introduce Simon LeBon of Duran Duran to Magness Arena. All my closest friends know how much I am in love with this band - ever since before high school - and the only thing that would have made it better would have been being able to touch John Taylor!! EEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!! But Simon will do just fine.... The best part? The fact that Simon chose this thirty-something in the second row to introduce him, instead of the teeny-boppers that most likely weren't even born when the songs first came out, forced their way into the front row and flashed the band all night. That was the best $85 I have ever spent!

Do you have a story? Tell me..... I'll just be over here daydreaming....
