The game may be in the South Bay (San Francisco Bay Area), and there are rumors that the most ‘epic’ game day party will be at Curmudgeon’s house, somewhere in deepest, darkest North Carolina, but Denver Broncos fans know that the epic-est party will be near Denver at the Grunt Ranch out on the patio at the workshop saloon.
This is a real place, actually, where night or day, all year ’round, whether friggin’-cold or hot-as-hell, somebody is out on the concrete, probably with a lot of propane and/or acetylene flames going, working on some cool machinery. Usually it’s the neighbors from northern Minnesota tearing down a snowmobile or an ATV. Sometimes it’s Grunt or some Gruntspawn replacing a 4×4 axle or changing the earl on Gruntessa’s Jap roadster. Often, it’s wood work going on.
But when that’s not happening, or even if it is, there’s often neighbors helping themselves to the outdoor beer fridge or sitting around a propane fire drinking Leopold’s whiskey or some cheap bourbon until very late at night making way too much noise for the old ladies across the street, and struggling to keep the dogs from howling with the coyotes down the road.
So, naturally, when the Broncos are in the Super Bowl, there’s no better place to raise hell than right here at the Grunt Ranch in the shadow of Mount Evans, Long’s Peak and Pike’s Peak. Even if most of the drinking will be done inside because it won’t be quite as sunny and warm Sunday as it was today. So everybody’s welcome, except for Ann Barnhardt, who kinda threatened our parish priest with her 9mm after having too much white wine last time she was here. (That was fun, though. LOL!) Oh, and Diogenes, who pissed me off for forgetting to wish me Happy New Year again this year, unless she brings some really good scotch. But Michelle Malkin and Steve Green are always welcome, being close by and awesome. And, of course, all friends and conservative bloggers of any kind are welcome, especially those we blog with regularly in the PCP, PoliNation, Proof, Adrienne, AWD, RSMcCain, WiredRight, EBL, DMF, Woodsterman, EoT, BoB, Dianny, iOTWr and Grunt blogospheres. Even those who wear teal blue for the game tomorrow. Lord knows, we already have a few of those coming over. May the best team win! GO BRONCOS!
