How do you make the decision of where to watch the Bronco game? Number one choice would be at the stadium granted, but how should it fall in place after that? I try to start with what people do I want to watch this game with, and then hope the beer there is to my liking. Since like last week, I don't have a best friend that like the Chargers; I guess I am open to suggestion. Rob, whom I mentioned was a big 49er's fan, is also a big Broncos fan too. I'm just not sure he wants to watch the game with me after the ribbing he received last Sunday. This place must meet two requirements, one, it must have Bronco fans, that is a given; and two, it must have good dark beer. I am open to suggestions. What's yours?

There was a picture that came out yesterday that had a lot of people talking about Renee Zellweger. People were saying things like, she looks different and some other things I won't and can't repeat! I know she's a celebrity and is expected by many Hollywood standards to look a certain way, but can't a gal just look the way she wants to anymore? I'll admit she looks like maybe she's had some work done around her eyes, so what! It's a personal choice. I'm in my 40's and yes I too look different from when I was in my 20s and 30s! I personally haven't had any enhancements, but never say never! It's natural to age. Embrace it. Just do it GRACEFULLY! It looks like Renee has learned to do that from the inside! You go Renee!

Renee Zellweger's response to the chatter last night...
She told People in a statement that she's happier and healthier these days and she's glad people took notice. "I'm glad folks think I look different! I'm living a different, happy, more fulfilling life, and I'm thrilled that perhaps it shows." Renée said she decided to speak out because "it seems the folks who come digging around for some nefarious truth which doesn't exist won't get off my porch until I answer the door." She continued, "My friends say that I look peaceful. I am healthy. For a long time I wasn't doing such a good job with that. I took on a schedule that is not realistically sustainable and didn't allow for taking care of myself. Rather than stopping to recalibrate, I kept running until I was depleted and made bad choices about how to conceal the exhaustion. I was aware of the chaos and finally chose different things." She credited a slower-paced lifestyle and boyfriend Doyle Bramhall for helping her transform her life. "I did work that allows for being still, making a home, loving someone, learning new things, growing as a creative person and finally growing into myself."

She added, "People don't know me in my 40s. People don't know me as healthy for a while. Perhaps I look different. Who doesn't as they get older?! Ha. But I am different. I'm happy."

It's entirely up to you.

I love my Broncos, AVs. Nuggets, Rockies and Cubs, (remember, I grew up in Colorado BEFORE the Rockies started and Harry Carey is the reason I got into this business anyway). So if you know me, you know I am a big sports fan. One of my best friends, Chris, is the ultimate fan. Here's why. Not only does he host parties for his favorite teams, (mainly Nebraska anything, and the KC Royals), but has literally traveled everywhere to see his favorite teams play. Today is no different. He gathered up his family at o'dark thirty this morning to travel from Colorado to Kansas City to watch his beloved Royals in the world series since he was 18. You may not like the Royals, or the teams that Chris likes; but one thing you will love is his passion. He has more fan paraphernalia than anyone I have ever met times 10. If you ever get to enjoy a sporting event with him, his passion will rub off on you. Don't believe me? Ask my daughter who went to the University of Nebraska after watching games at Chris' house when she was in high school. Go Royals for Chris, he deserves it.

Where were you when Peyton Manning broke the record Sunday night? Hopefully it will be one of those sports memories you'll remember forever, like when Kordell Stewart and the Colorado Buffs beat Michigan in the final moment of the game, or when Dante Bichette hit the home run in extra innings at the first ever game at Coors field. For me, I'll remember because it was with one of my very best friends Rob, having beers and watching at Choppers. It's not only the company and the atmosphere, it was not only the beating the Broncos gave the Niners as Peyton set the record; it was the fact that Rob is also a San Francisco fan that made it even sweeter. I know he's hoping the Giants do better in the World Series; just to make him feel better, I'll take the Royals! Either way we'll be enjoying at least one or two of the games together over a beer or 6.

As a Cubs fan, I never have to worry about gearing up for the World Series. This year is a bit different. Like most people I have a a few really close friends. These are friends that would do anything for you, and you would do anything for them. Chris is a HUGE KC fan, Phil a HUGE SF fan. They are already bribing my daughters and grandson with team gear, and warning me not to root for the other. For the first year since Colorado went to the fall classic, I find myself more interested than ever. I am a huge sports fan, and will agree, that baseball is not as exciting as football; but it's still fun. I found myself rooting for these two teams to make it for my friends sake; and now that they have, I find myself in a quandry. I guess I just hope for a competitive series and keep telling my self as a Cubs fan...there's always next year!

My wife Renee might be the only person in the world who is apparently happy to visit the DMV. Problem is, her excessively bubbly and goofy personality often manifests itself in cringe-inducing photos. Mouth open/eyes closed is her default pose more often than not. She just got her temporary Colorado driver's license and is fearing what the real thing is going to look like when it arrives in the mail, mainly because the photographer gave her a strange look right after snapping the picture she's going to have to live with for the next five years. I can't wait to see this photo. In fact, I'm going to very disappointed if it turns out even halfway normal-looking. When I asked her the obvious question of why she can't just hold still with a pleasant, neutral look on her face at picture time, Renee replied, "because I'm an idiot." Yes, but she's MY idiot.

My grandson, (hey...easy, I had my oldest when I was 22, she had her son when she was 23), like I said my grandson, is not like any other kid when it comes to what he loves to eat. Most kids love McNuggets, and cheeseburgers, and pizza rolls, and mac and cheese, not 3 1/2 year old Craig. He loves sushi...any kind, any style, anytime. It's the biggest thing to him to go to a sushi restaurant, (for the record, it's a big deal to his mom too). He doesn't eat his sushi rolls normal though, he unrolls it, it's the fish first, then whatever the is in there with the fish, followed by the rice after he balls it up, and then the roll itself. The best part of the night, when he gets home with his mom later he says,"Thank you mom, thank you for the sushi deener"! Even if he eats weird, I love that little guy.
