All Hands On Deck

Let's take this occasion to hand out a few accolades. Congratulations to the Kansas City Chiefs for their huge upset win in San Diego. While I'm excited that the Chargers are 1-3, I'm much, much more jazzed that we might be spared (for one week, at least) from ranting about how Insert Winning Team Here is a bunch of dirty cheaters.

A regular season victory over Norv is one thing, but what the Colorado Rockies have done is something special. In winning 13 of their last 14 games, the Purple Cobras have capped their best regular season ever with an improbable appearance in a one-game playoff showdown. Tomorrow night Coors Field will host Jake Peavy and the San Diego Padres, with the winner heading for a playoff series with Philly.

So here's the deal: If you live in the greater Denver metropolitan area, you need to get your ass to the game. No excuses are allowed, with the exception of severe illness or a case of general puss. Everybody else, why don't we get drunk and blog? For the first time, we're going to open up the House of Georges to the general public. I'll be running a constantly updated post in which Cecil, Bank and I will share poignant observations of the game. Feel free to chime in at, and we'll run as many comments as we have room for.

The more offensive and salacious the messages, the better, especially if they denigrate the residents of San Diego proper. Anchorman references, of course, will put you at the front of the line. I'm really hoping that Norv Turner joins the fun.
