I just wanna tell you guys thanks for being here. Best day ever.
Numerically, next Saturday is the biggest day of the century. You see, next Saturday is July 7, 2007. 7/7/07. Trip 7's. You wont see this sequence again in your lifetime. As someone who has had an orange and blue 7 permanently etched into his upper right arm since 1996, this is a big deal.
JT & the boys over at Colorado Homers are campagaining to make 7/7/07 some type of official holiday, and I couldn't be any happier. They're urging everyone to contact Mayor Hickenlooper, Governor Ritter and other such government types to spread the word. They're also contacting various adult-beverage establishments throughout the metro area to locate a spot to celebrate the big day. My Denver Obsession is also getting in on the fun.
I too urge you to celebrate any way you know how. I'm going to toss on the bright orange throwback 7, pop in my tape of the 1998 playoff games and pour a bowl of Elway's Comeback Crunch. Then I'm going to get shitty drunk, re-live the good ol' days and spit in Dan Reeves' general direction.
