Horse Tracks - 3/1/10 - Some Kudos are in Order


Good Morning Broncos Country!  I want to start thins morning by giving some Kudos to E.J. Ruiz and the Live Mock Draft Crew.  For those of you that don't visit the site during the weekend, E.J. hosted a Live Mock Draft yesterday - 3 Rounds - eclipsing 8 hours and nearly 2000 comments.  It was a huge undertaking, yet E.J., with help from Jeremy and others, pulled it off without a hitch.  A MHR Salute to E.J. and all those involved in the Mock Draft for really showing the true meaning of the MHR Community!
