I realized that: P12N is less interesting this year with big wierd Bill earning his paycheck elsewhere. (Similar view with departure of Rick Neuhisel) Bill was one big advertisement for the Boulder Chamber of commerce and Colorado tourism. #1 Active town, #1 Foodie town, #1 recycling campus, blah, blah, blah Loved his endorsement of Shap as an up-and-comer in sports broadcasting. Bill's kind words and the several seconds of footage of Shapiro doing his thing is resume material. The Dead & Company concert and Rick George got a great plug. Atomic Clock, Mork & Mindy, a bazillion fossils at the Nat History museum, the new Champions Center, Red Rocks Ampitheatre, Nairopa, $1B in MJ tax revenue all got airtime. It must have been frustrating for AZ fans to hear Walton gushing about how awesome Boulder is while also being a homer for the CU Buffs, who held the lead for most of the game. Now I don't have the tolerance for Walton on a regular basis. But he's got a Willy Wonka charm and was the right guy to toot CU's horn last night. And he must have been stoned out of his mind. "Butterflies, Butterflies. butterflies are awesome." So funny.
