Put a Lid On Your Trash Talkin’

So, my beloved Broncos apparently forgot there was a football game to be played yesterday. Losing sucks, but it’s part of being a diehard fan. You have to take the lows with the highs. It hurts that I waited 15 years to see my team make it back to the Big Show, only to beContinue reading “Put a Lid On Your Trash Talkin’”

Searchin’ For My Lost Shaker of Salt

Lately, however, it’s devolved into this: For the record, I think the NFL’s “A Crucial Catch” campaign to raise breast cancer awareness is a good thing. The leagueContinue reading “Pink 42, Hike!”
