Good Morning all!! 5:30 AM sure did come fast, and the sounds surrounding Invesco Field at night aren't very condusive to sleeping. "Camping" out on a football field, in a stadium, in the middle of a huge metropolitan city isn't exactly like going to the local state park if you know what I mean. Trains, sirens, horns, a little bit of everything. I was able to muster a couple of hours here and there.
For Breakfast the team supplied donuts, bagels and cream cheese, a lovely fruit platter, OJ and coffee. With the temperature somewhere in the 40's the coffee was definitely appreciated, as were the pants and sweatshirt I packed at the very last minute. After parting with Ricky and his family I headed over to the Red Lion Hotel which is located directly next door to Invesco Field. I figured there was no way they would have my room ready at 7:00AM. I was wrong, which leads me to believe there would have been a room available last night, had I checked to see. Oh well, how often do you get to hang out on the field and watch Remember the Titans on the scoreboard?
I did force myself to get a couple hours of shut eye before attacking this post on my wife's suggestion. I feel much better, and am ready for the days events. I finally have some photos for your viewing pleasure. Look at the filename in your browser address bar to see what you are looking at(it's in the filename). ENJOY!
