Good MORNING, MHR Friends!! Today's the day. It's no longer about playing mistake-free football and staying healthy. I mean, those things matter. But really, it's finally here, and all that matters is getting a 'W'. That's it. Get the win; anyway, anyhow. GO BRONCOS!!!! To those in NYC, I'll hopefully see you at Sidebar (15th and Irving) at the back bar - there should be a pretty big group of Denver fans watching our boys on the big screen with sound. I'll be the token Asian guy...obviously, please introduce yourselves and I look forward to meeting you!
