mixology 2013: the broncos

"When I first saw you standing there,
You know, it was a little hard not to stare.
So nervous when I drove you home,
I know -- being apart's a little hard to bear.

Sent some flowers to your work,
In hopes I would have you in my arms again.
We kissed that night before you left,
And now, it was something I could never forget.

You've got all that I need!

We're looking at all or nothing!
Babe?  It's you and I!  (With you?)
I know that I'm good for something,
So let's go and give it a try!  (We've got)

Our backs against the ocean --
It's just us against the world!
We're looking at all or nothing;
Babe?  It's you and I.
We're looking at all or nothing --
Babe?  It's you and I ...

"All or Nothing" by Theory of a Deadman.


Hi, everybody!  (Hi, Stevo!)

I begin typing this exactly 48 hours to the minute from kickoff of what is arguably the single biggest, most important regular season game in Arrowhead Stadium's history.  Holy cow, Chiefs fans.  Are we ready?  We ready?  We ready?  For those jackasses from denver?

Hell yes we are!

Hope each and every one of you had an enjoyable holiday.  Mine wasn't too bad.  The tree is up; there's already five Chrismukkah gifts under it for various friends and family, and part of a sixth one as well.  (Still waiting on an item ordered this morning from NFL Shop, to complete that one.)  The turkey was good, the stuffing was great, the wine was plentiful, and my brother's new dog is adorable.  What more could you want?  (Other than a win Sunday, of course.)

Here's the Mixologist's Play List for the bronkeys game.  As always, if you're coming out, feel free to join us.  We'll be in our usual bat spot, at our usual bat time.  No early-in pass this week though; they weren't offered.  But the STH email said the gates open at 10am ... so we're wagering on 8:30am, with a side bet on 9am.  And if they were, then that means three of us are freaking retarded, and couldn't find the link.  And last time I checked, only one of the three of us has a rule thirty four, to describe his stupidity.

If you're coming out, and don't see something you want to hear on the Mixology List, please, send me a text, an email, or call me out on Twitter or Facebook with what you want, and I'll happily add it to the rotation.

Please remember though -- just because it's on there, doesn't mean it will play.  There are only three songs guaranteed to play no matter what -- "Penny Lover" (always kicks off Mixology for the day), "You Never Even Called Me By My Name" (for the classic sing-a-long it inspires), and "Somewhere Only We Know" (because it's my favorite song of all time).  So if you really want to hear something?  Hell folks, I have a D on my voter card.  I'm corrupt!  I'm buyable!  I accept bribes!

Enjoy the game everyone!

See ya Sunday!  If you still need tickets, I'll let you in on a little secret.  Go to  Hover the mouse over Tickets in the menu bar, then click on NFL Ticket Exchange, then click on "Buy Tickets" next to the "my little ponies" game.  These are the cheapest prices out there, and you know they're legit, because its only season ticket holders (hey, that's me!) that are selling them to you.  As of this posting, there are 7 available at $80 or less, and a lot more available between $81 and $90.  If the resale prices you out of parking money?  The Bus leaves by 8:15am Sunday morning.  Don't be late.

Until then, to tide you over, do this, Chiefs fans.  Close your eyes.  Clear your thoughts.  Focus on the ramps after a humongous win.  The chops.  The chanting.  The shouts of joy.  Cool stuff, right?

Then imagine how sweet it's going to be, come 7ish on Sunday evening, to hear three words on a continual loop, walking down or up the ramps into the parking lots.  "F*ck The donkeys!!!!  (clap clap clap clap clap!)  F*ck the donkeys!  (clap clap clap clap clap!)"  Trust me folks -- NOONE will be louder, in shouting that obscenity, than this guy.

I am so damned ready for this game.  So damned ready ...
