It’s getting closer to game time, and I gotta admit, I’m starting to feel some nerves. Four of us played at New Deck on Monday. We tied for first and then fell in overtime. Tough loss, drove home some of our weaknesses, though we have at least started to figure out what those weaknesses are. We’re going to struggle with fashion and perfumes. There is no getting around that, and I don’t know how much cramming is gonna help in that regard. We also are gonna struggle with cooking terms and country music, both of which I’ll be studying today. There will be 72 teams at this thing, and I’m gonna be honest: anything less than a Top 10 finish will be a disappointment.
As for Denver itself, I still have no idea what we’re going to do there. Any suggestions? I think that we want to do lunch at the Casa Bonita on the day of the event, provided we’re not too far away from it. I went to Casa Bonita once before (like 12 years ago,) and it was pretty spectacular. It’s an enormous Mexican restaurant which features cliff divers, gunfights, and Black Bart’s cave. I’m telling you, this place is insane. And the food is famously mediocre. And let’s face it, eating mediocre Mexican hours before the big event…what could go wrong?
Anyhow, this will be a rare weekend where it’s worth checking out the website. I’ll be taking video the whole time and posting it on the site, so be sure to stay turned to how this thing turns out. No matter what, it should be a lot of fun.
