Mile High Salute!?

I was just catching up on the media out of mini-camp this last week, and ran into this "gem" of an interview over at the (horrible) Denver Post. This really is, overall,  a terrible piece, and I apologize for linking to it.

No, I didn't want to share Lindsey Jones stumbling her way through an explanation of D-Jax's  career, as if she just woke up and hadn't had her coffee yet (Sorry Lindsey - try dropping the frequent "uh's" -- it doesn't, uh, help...) Nope, it wasn't the goat-like beard Jackson is sporting that made me point this out to you (although I do sorta like the the crumb-catcher he's growing, despite the fact that you'd think it could get tangled in one's chinstrap).

The part I liked occurs 42 seconds in when Jackson (somewhat awkwardly - a natural response given the interviewer's "technique") says:

I'm gonna try to bring back the Mile High Salute. That's what somebody told me at Fan Fair, to bring back the Mile High Salute. So every time I score I'm going to have to try to do that.

That's right - after a brief resurgence from Mike Bell, whose days look numbered, the Salute is back! We have another potential celebrant, and one who has a decent shot at scoring to boot. I was already pretty excited about having Darrell Jackson on the squad, as I think he has a chance to be very effective. This is is just gravy.

Clearly I, for one, am all for it. I think it is a great celebration, especially at a time when so many U.S. soldiers (many Colorado based) are deployed in dangerous theaters abroad. And I think it is still legal to salute in the end zone...

I would love to start a fan campaign to try to get more players onboard with the Mile High Salute. We have enough warm bodies here, we could at least send some emails... Anyone interested?
