Hello again! How are you all? Me? Im on cloud 9. Let me explain why:
You all remember the game that shall not be mentioned. I remember it clearly. It was bitterly cold, and 2 of my good friends, my brother, and I all traveled to Denver, because, how often are the Broncos in the big one? We all know what happened a few hours later. Worst car ride of my life. Lots of awkward silence. My beer never tasted so awful. Hell, my brother lost his job over it (no big deal, just a pizza delivery job). The following week was the coldest I can remember from living in CO. Even the motor mount fell out of my car on that Wednesday. It was -22*. A bad week to be sure.
I was a Sad, Bitter, Emperor of MHR. Some of you can probably remember my comments from then. I took about a 2 week hiatus from MHR during that time. The wound was too fresh. Didnt want to hear that the Broncos would be back next year, didnt want to hear about how we would re-load and tweak this and we'll get em next time boys, rah rah stuff. I went over to the dark side of the Kool-aid...
Then on Tuesday something incredible happened. Something that would change my life forever.
Tuesday March the 18th was a cold nasty day. Very windy, with a bit of rain/snow mixed in. I was at the hospital with my wife, we had already been there over 24 hours. At 5:17 in the afternoon, my daughter was born. The storm had passed and the sun was shining. All the bitterness over the SB was gone, and this tiny creature made that game and the Broncos seem very small.
Well MHR, we've grown a lot together over the last year. You've been with me through my board exam, graduation, getting married, landing job, and now the birth of my infant daughter. Thank you for allowing me the privilege of sharing with you.
1. No cursing. If you must do a F*** or a sh** but lets keep it PG 13 folks.
2. Leave bad blood at the door. If you got beef with someone, don't continue it here.
3. Leave trolling at the door as well. If you must troll, please come up with something more clever-er than "Donkeys" Also applies to us as well, folks. Lets leave the trash talking of other teams for other threads. Gotta set the example!
4. Dont turn this place into a mess of a thread over politics, race, war religion, etc.
5. Respect each other.
Don't follow these rules, and my Imperial Homies Bronco Mike and Tim Lynch will handle ya'. Here's a pic:
