7. “I hope no one’s watching.”

6. “This is worse than my honeymoon at the ‘Late Show'” (shot of newlywed couple).

5. “Who’s that hunk in the fur coat?” (picture of Joe Namath, below).

Don’t think this column wouldn’t include a Super Bowl item

February 3, 2014

Even though our own Gov. John Hickenlooper and the Washington state guv Jay Inslee refused to make a Super Bowl wager, Denver’s Punch Bowl Social founder Robert Thompson and Washington’s Garage Billiards owner Alex Rosenast have pledged to donate $1,000 to their winning team’s charity of choice.

“I volunteer to send Alex a case of Orange Crush soda, win or lose,” Thompson said.

“Win or lose, I’m trying to get a dinner set up for Robert and (Seahawks cornerback) Richard Sherman,” Rosenast said.

After Sunday’s 43-8 Broncos loss to the Seagawks, a charity will be selected by the winner and the $1,000 donation will follow.

Denver gets a one up over Seattle on ‘CBS This Morning’

January 31, 2014

The bandwagon has landed.

CBS “This Morning” correspondent Mo Rocca goes head to head with John Blackstone over which city is cooler: Seattle or Denver.

Blackstone opines on Seattle’s origin of Starbuck’s (who cares?) and fresh fish from Pike Street Market, but Rocca one ups him with our lack of need for umbrellas due to our 300 days of dry weather and sun.

I lived in the Seattle-area twice and I remember breaking down in tears in June because it was pouring rain and way cold and I was wearing a raincoat. Just gross!

Rocca even goes so far as to try Rocky Mountain oysters at The Buckhorn Exchange, which many visitors shun. Right now, everyone whether on local or national TV is jumping on the bandwagon, but it’s beyond fun to see our Mile High City getting so much positive publicity!

You know that our Visit Denver folks are salivating!

See the whole bit at http://www.cbsnews.com/videos/seattle-vs-denver-which-super-bowl-city-is-best/. Freaking hilarious!

Burn off some anxiety before Super Bowl kickoff

January 31, 2014

Pre-Super Bowl jitters can be the worst. Spending a long morning and afternoon of building excitement on Sunday, just waiting for the 4:30 p.m. (MST) kickoff, can be stressful.

So here are 10 exciting ways to burn off the tension, and have a great pre-kickoff day in The Mile High City.

  1. Wear a Broncos Super Fan costume. Wear something orange and enjoy free admission to the History Colorado Center from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday.  At the museum, you can take your picture in front of the huge bison statue (who just happens to be wearing a Peyton Manning jersey) or try on a Barrel Man replica barrel in the Denver A to Z exhibit.  There is a fun case of Orange Crush cans, as well as three floors of exhibits exploring Colorado Stories, Destination Colorado and the Living West.
  2. Climb the stairs at Red Rocks. There are 69 rows of benches at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, all located 6,400 feet above sea level.  Climbing the benches is a traditional Rocky Mountain workout, and great tension reliever.  Or hike the 1.4-mile long Trading Post Trail that winds among the rocks offering excellent views.
  3. Do the Zoo. Denver Zoo is offering half off admission prices  fans wearing orange or their favorite Bronco-wear every day through Saturday. And game day, Feb. 2 is a pre-scheduled free day. Be sure to visit the orangutans. With their naturally orange color, they just might be the biggest Bronco fans in the city.
  4. Ride an Orange Denver B-Cycle. There are more than 800 bikes at approximately 83 stations throughout the city. Look for the two bright orange Broncos bikes, or pick up any of the bright red shiny Trek bikes and pedal off around Washington Park. And, on Super Bowl Sunday, enter promo code 214 for a $3 discount for the 24-hour pass (normally $8).
  5. Contemplate the Orange and Blue works of Clyfford Still. On Super Bowl Sunday, buy one admission and get one free at the Clyfford Still Museum with the special code, “Broncos.” And when the Broncos win the Super Bowl, the museum will offer free admission on Feb. 3.
  6. Stroll or Bike the Mall. Denver’s mile-long 16th Street Mall is lined with 43 outdoor cafes. Designed by I.M. Pei, it is the prime people watching spot in the city – and on Sundays only, it’s permissible to ride your bike down the Mall.
  7. Jog the Mile High Loop Trail in City Park. This 5k trail follows the 5,280 foot contour through City Park; many places along the trail are marked as being exactly one mile high.  The trail also offers some of the finest views of the city with the mountains as a backdrop.
  8. View Bronco Inspired Art at the Denver Art Museum. There are more than a dozen works of art in the museum of bucking broncos, many in the museum’s famed Western Art collection. The Hamilton building will be illuminated orange from 6 to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
  9. Go Back 300 Million Years at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science.  You’ll learn that a Super Bowl played during the Paleozoic era would have been an aquatic game because Seattle, Denver and New York were all under water.  Burn off some energy at the Expedition Health and be reassured that no matter how fast your heart beats during the game, your brain cells will receive the same amount of oxygen.
  10. 10. Escape Winter in a Tropical Floral 10.Wonderland at the Denver Botanic Gardens. Who cares if cold and snow in New York will affect the passing game if you’re walking between 200 orchids amidst more than 1,000 blossoms? Visit the conservatory, take of your coat and relax in the tropics until kickoff.

All bets are on versus Denver and Seattle sports card dealers

January 31, 2014

With the Super Bowl nearly here, so much of the focus has been on Peyton Manning versus Russell Wilson and Demaryius Thomas versus Richard Sherman, but the real attention should be on Mike’s Stadium Sportscards in Aurora versus DJ’s Sportscards in Renton, Wash.

“I was lucky enough to be at the Broncos victory over the Patriots,” said Michael Fruitman, owner of Mike’s Stadium Sportscards.  “When Denver won, I talked to a shop owner I knew near San Francisco and also talked to Don Joss, owner of DJ’s, about setting up a friendly challenge on the game.  For years we have seen political leaders offer Rocky Mountain Oysters and other interesting items in friendly wagers and I wanted to add a little spice to this year’s game.”

Instead of a traditional bet, charity will be the winner.  Should the Seahawks win, Fruitman will be making a $250 donation to The Shepherd’s Crook Ministries, which partners with adoption agencies to match special needs children with families who are able to adopt him.  http://theshepherdscrook.org/about/purpose/.

“Seattle fans eagerly await the chance to end a 40-plus year championship drought as well as avenge the embarrassing and historic playoff upset of the Seattle Sonics at the hands of the Denver Nuggets years ago” said Joss.  “I hope that Dikembe Mutombo is nowhere near MetLife Stadium anytime soon.”

If the Broncos win, Joss will be making a $250 donation to the Share Basket Project. The Share Basket Project is organized by Barbara Fruitman who can be reached at 303-699-9808 or BarbaraFruitman@yahoo.com.

In addition, the winning card store also will be sharing an entire 12-box case of 2013 Topps Magic NFL with collectors.  Each box of Topps Magic yields three autographs on average and with some luck, you could pull autographs of players like Denver Broncos rookie Montee Ball,  Seattle Seahawks veteran Marshawn Lynch, Bo Jackson, Barry Sanders, Andrew Luck, Drew Brees and more superstars.

“When Denver wins, we are looking forward to giving away all 288 packs of Topps Magic football to all of Bronco Nation one pack at a time” Fruitman said.  “I can’t wait to see some incredible signatures come out of our packs and the idea of helping families enjoy a complete Thanksgiving dinner would be the perfect topper to Denver’s third NFL championship.”
