Here We Are
Many people tell me this style is terrific It is kind of different, but let's get specific...
Before Ronald Reagan introduced crack to the ghettoes, he said "it's morning again in America." That's what we are thinking here at Slushy Gutter Summer. With the actual summer season winding down, today is the beginning of a new era, a new time, maybe a new legacy. That is, football season here in God's Country, aka Colorado. Mere hours away from kickoff in quirky Boulder, SG Summer takes a turn like the downward temperatures, the changing leaves, and weekends of footballs from Friday to Monday Night. SG Summer embraces football like it's own newborn child, a gift to the masses yet something that can be so personal. The Black and Gold of a proud alma mater; the Orange Pride of a great franchise; the innocence of the local 11. Whatever it is, football runs through the fabric of my life. Trips to old Mile High Stadium with my favorite football hero, my Pops, started the passion that is all pigskin. I took the reins from there, Monday Nights with Al and Dan, fantasy football with Dieter Brock, and lastly, the pagentry that is College Football.
With that, I've made the decision that Slushy Gutter Summer will continue. The 14 week "social experiment" will forge on. Yes, the challenge has been completed, but there is still more to say. This football addiction will be talked about, the utter realness of hip hop will be promoted, and even more of the sweet nectar of beers will be noted. Again, they all run through the fabric of my life.
The journey that has been the initial SG Slushy Summer ends in just a few hours. 528 beers. Cliche in hand, I can say "been there, done that." Looking back, what fun it was. Stupid, self-promoting, perhaps even dangerous? Of course. Fun, all-encompassing of the crazy crew, and laid back? Definitely. I raise a tall can, clink with everyone's glass, bottle or can, salutations to all. Cheers and peace, and we're just getting started...(528)
