Boy, we really need to get hockey season going. This post needs the "Who Cares" tag.

I disagree.

When some DU athlete/alumnus gets to the top of their sports-related profession, it's worth some publicity here.

I am sure Heath worked very hard to win this...

Just try to keep the image of DG in posing trunks out of your head.

We need to put this guy on skates and when the North Da Goona team plays us knock a couple of them into the student section.

Do we really need to know whether DG prefers boxers, briefs or a thong?

Hey Todd,

Get off my nuts!

CO14ers said...

Aye, yi, yi Mex. Randy's kiss and cry forum getting too boring for ya?

mexico said...

Hey 14ers,

Why do you call it the kiss and cry forum? I'm curious. Please fill me in.

If it's something personal or sexual spare me the details.

CO14ers said...

Randy bans fans of other teams, especially DU, from that forum. He likes to keep it all in the CC family. So, when CC wins all you peeps can kiss each other and talk about how great CC is and when CC loses, the sob fest is on with each consoling one another. How quaint.

mexico said...

I knew that. I just wanted to hear you say it again.

I guess I just do whatever it takes to get attention from you? Why won’t you return my phone calls???

When mexico leaves the springs, they will climb the IQ charts exponentially...jus sayin...

Anonymous said...

P.S.

That exponentially comment will mean the equivalence of rick perry all of sudden being as smart as my turd I just flushed...
So, the Springs with mexico = rick perry
and the Springs minus mexico = my turd

I can provide a more detailed flow chart if that is too confusing...

And if he moves to Denver, so will they...

dggoddard said...

Kind of interesting or telling that DU hoops two most famous alums are Phil Heath and Sinbad the actor.

@9:18, at least there are a lot of support services in Denver for people like mexico, we don't discriminate and support the less fortunate around here.

Can't believe that no one has jumped on the "jay Cutler" reference...
