This is in no way a rival to Sara's eloquent,clever and as always tremendously delightful post but I needed to piggy back a bit to describe Memorial Day weekend in Colorado. One word my friends
Yep, I am convinced [and have substantial statistically corroborating evidence to prove it] that it always rains Memorial Day weekend and then is sunny and gorgeous the next day - you know what I am back at work.
So it was good TV watching weather as I watched the Nuggets play on Saturday and Monday! Yep, I've been a hardcore fan for almost 2 weeks now. In fact, I'm first chair clarinet on the bandwagon that we've all been enthusiastically jumping on as we cheer our team on. As you may recall, The Rockies had a similar "Cinderella" season to the World Series several years ago and our State experienced the same sort of unifying phenomenon. It is amazing as everyone is just a little nicer, just a little happier, just a little more yellow and blue. You pass folks on the street and you give them that knowing "so did you watch the game?" smile. Unless of course you are Rand and have celestial connections and somehow get tickets to both games. This leads me to my favorite conversation of the weekend [I was with Carrie, Dave, and Brig on Monday]:
Laura: Hey guys, are we going to watch the game? Let me call Leslie and see if we can go there.
Leslie: Rand and I are actually going to the game but you are welcome to come watch it with the boys and Becky [impostor babysitter]
Dave: Even though I haven't done anything today, I'm really tired and don't feel like driving to Broomfield.
Carrie: Yeah, I want to watch the game also but feel the same as Dave
Laura: Don't you have any friends who have a TV/cable? What about Wandrys?
Carrie: No, they don't have cable.
Laura: Is it on the Internet?
Carrie: Dave, can we splice in cable just for the game?
Dave: Uh, no and plus it isn't legal. Maybe we can drive to my mom's to watch it.
As we drive in the pouring rain 20 minutes South to Dave's mom's house
Dave: Carrie, I'm thinking we should get cable for Christmas!!!
Tune in tonight for game SIX!!!
