Spring Time

Well it’s spring time and that means several things. One, my time spent inside on my computer is taking a backseat slowly and surely to being outside. Especially now since I have a house of my own to keep up with I have plenty to do including weeding, planting, mowing, painting, cleaning and all the joyous things home ownership brings. Another thing that comes with spring time is the NBA playoffs and as you all may know, my Denver Nuggets are killing it so far this year. I really haven’t missed hardly any games at all this year (thank God for Altitude), and I do mean from game one in the fall to game one of the playoffs and up until now. I am not your run of the mill local band wagon jumper; I even placed a bet on them to win back in October right after the Rockies blew it! Doesn’t it grind your gears when you are devoted and supportive of your team regardless of their record and then they finally are doing well for themselves and all these faux-fans come out of the woodwork, laying claim that they were always down for the cause?!

Good News

Since I got off work yesterday two things have happened in the sports world that are making this weekend quite possibly the best weekend I have had in a while!

As some of you know I am a huge sports fan, and more specifically a Nuggets basketball fan as well as a Kansas City Chiefs football fan. Last night the Nuggets managed to hold the first place team in the Western Conference under 80 points. The best part of this is that the Lakers average 109 points a game, which is a huge defensive stance by the Nuggies! This is a good sign from the Nuggets especially because of the recent loss to Boston at home where it would’ve appeared they had no defensive skills at all!

The second piece of good news which I just found out was that the Kansas City Chiefs just signed Mike Vrabel and Matt Cassel from the N.E. Patriots! I guess that puts all the talk of who the starting QB in KC will be this next season to rest, at least for a while. Plus the pickup of Vrabel can’t hurt the defense who is very young and could use the leadership of a vetran linebacker.

These two events along with some personal events that are taking place have combined to make this one sweet weekend for me so far. Right now I am going to step away from the PC and enjoy the nice weather we have here in Denver and possibly go hit some golf balls. Cha!!
