Willy Wonka’s Golden Ticket

That what it feels like…the sad part is that I am the only one that thus far gets to feel that way. Ahna and I had been wait-listed for community credentials to the acceptance speech at Invesco Field (home to the Denver Broncos), and we thought our chances of seeing the event in person were over. Well, yesterday I received an e-mail from the Colorado Professional Fire Fighters stating that the union had received 25 tickets for the event. The catch? You had to be a member of the CPFF; which means that I am able to get one, but not Ahna or Ezra. Really exciting and really a bummer at the same time. 

I’m sure that this is the first of a rapid succession of postings over the next 10 days that will somehow mention the first major political event of Ezra’s life: the Democratic National Convention. On Friday we get to walk through the Pepsi Center, then there is event after event in the upcoming days to attend – if we have the desire and willpower. 

Mary Jo arrived into town last night and will be here through Saturday. It worked out well that most of her stay is over a four-day of mine, so we will have the opportunity to do a lot of things together….there will be stories to come, I’m sure of that. 

PS: This line is for Cyrilla and Tanner (and anyone else who is a Cowboy fan): Denver beat the Cowboys…the Broncos are better than Dallas. Period. Enough said.

Okay, here is the picture of my ticket:
