So Peyton, you’re here for the next 5 years, right?
Ok, well, I know you’ll be busy at the bank for the next day or two, but when you get a chance, you might want to head down to 1000 Chopper Circle.
No, I don’t know much about Tennessee football, or hosting Saturday Night Live, or holding the Lombardi trophy standing next to Jim Nance, but I have seen what one gigantic steel cup can do to a city. It’s Anarchy P-Money. Can I call you P-Money? No? Ok, well Mr. Manning, will you do me a favor? Will you go catch a hockey game in the next two weeks? I think you might enjoy it, after all, you have some fans here in Denver now and I think they’d all like to see you in a burgundy and blue sweater kicking back with a cold one and watching this insane run for the Playoffs unfold.
You’re kinda busy right now?
Cool brutha, I get it. Can I call you brutha? No? Ok, well cool Mr. Manning, I get it. Give me a high five! No…you don’t like that? Ok. Well what do you know about the hockey team here in Denver? Not much huh…hmmmm, well let me just give you the inside scoop.
We are the youngest team in the NHL. Gabriel Landeskog is 19 years old, he’ll probably win a trophy called the Calder. That’s pretty good if you were wondering. Oh, and he loves to tweet. Do you tweet?
OKAY…come back here! I’m not done with you just yet. Boy, you are a busy guy.
Ok, I will make this quick. We are good Peyton, really good. We’re probably the fastest team in the NHL. We have two goaltenders that can stop flies from going in the net. They’re on fire. We’ve won 10 of our last 14 games. We’ve got some nastiness on this team as well, guys that can rip your face off and score in the same shift. I know Jeff Saturday is a big guy, but he wouldn’t stand a chance fighting one of these guys on two skates.
Is Jeff Saturday a cool guy? (Crickets)……Ok, so anyway, this team is awesome. Do I sound like Chris Farley from Saturday Night Live? You were great on that show…remember when you did that funny commercial with the kids on the football field for United Way?
That was awesome. (Crickets)……
Yeah, so anyway, this team is stacked with young talent Peyton. Guys like Matt Duchene, Paul Stastny, Ryan O’Reilly, Jamie McGinn, Steve Downie and David Jones. There is only a handful of games left and the team is in a dog fight for one of the final playoff spots in the Western Conference.
There are only 4 games left here at home too, so if you need tickets let me know. I bet you could probably……yeah never mind, you can get tickets.
So, anyway, if you have a chance, go see a hockey game.
Hey, one other thing….(Mile Hi Salute).
