    During a break in action at the UCLA game last night, Mrs. H and I were looking around the Coors Center and remarking at the text and graphics on the walls, notably the 'roaming' theme:
    - Where legends roam
    - Where clutch shots roam
    - Where champions roam
    - etc...


    My wife starts this soliloquy:
    My wife rules.

    I know everyone is feeling anxiety and disappointment over the Dinwiddie injury and subsequent on-court performance of the team. Hope this is a welcome distraction -- I was busting up all last night. Go Buffs!

    I think Lappe should have one that reads:

    Where Buffaloes come home to roam

    With a split image of her as a player and as a coach.

    As much as could be expected. You might see her reading a book during the game, but she did that when I dragged her to ACC games too. Even though our daughter (and money) are now going to CU, she hasn't been as quick to adopt the Buffs as I have ("but honey, it's important that we have an ACC team AND a Pac-12 team"). Fan atmosphere is great at Coors and Folsom -- and she's quick to criticize. We attended a lot of VT road games and she would always rate the crowd: so far, so good with CU!

    We both love the area -- it's everything we hoped for. In three weeks we move out of this crappy 400 sq. ft. apartment and into our mountain home -- I expect we'll both love Colorado even more then!

    Noice find! Most of you aren't old enough to get this, but you need to Rep BP. Trust me.

    If you ever dig up some old BFrique pre-game columns, you might just save the Colorado Daily.

    Hans Bjordahl's daily comic in the Colorado Daily just added to the richness of CU in the McCartney era.
    I wonder if that Where the Buffalo Roam comic might have been an artistic inspiration for the creators of South Park.
