    Wife got me the Colorado Vault for our anniversary! :woot::slayer::dance:

    If you have not seen this book, go out gets you one. It is freekin' sweet! There's all these little do-dads and widgets that you can pull out - like the Score Card from the 1897 game against the Denver Athl. Club, complete with ads for Dr. Schumacker's dentistry, the Denver Candy Company, and my favorite: Mt. Vernon Rye ("If you are bound to drink whisky then drink the best.")

    this ought to keep me busy during the bye week. :thumbsup:

    My girlfriend got me the Vault for our 3 year anniversary last weekend. I also agree with your description of its awesomeness. Isn't it great to have women in our lives who understand us?

    or here

    It really is a great book! If you live in the Denver area Costco had them a few weeks back--might still.

    My mom bought it for my dad from Costco. I picked it up last week & stuff went flying. It was kind of a mess & taught me that this isn't something to just pick up & flip through. But it was cool & definitely something to occupy the days (week) between games. :thumbsup:

    My wife got one for me and one for her Dad. Side note, look for the page on CU's Butkus winner, 'Mike' Russell.

    I blame the editors. There's no way Plati could make a mistake like that.

    Sorry. My bad. i posted that out of memory, and when I looked at the book again, I was wrong.

    They called him (on a caption with him holding the trophy) Mark Russell.

    Yeah, I said it, then wondered if that was the right person, but like lammiefusker said, you guys are a bunch of ****ing elephants around here, so I knew someone would get it right! (after BS76 said 'WTF!!!':smile2:)
