Not long ago I wrote a post here
about my lack of enthusiasm for the Broncos, and for football in general. I have tried, and I have failed. (Seems that I'm not alone in that attitude today, at least.) After posting my little blurb, I thought I might hear from another football widow who could feel my pain. Or perhaps I might get an e-mail from an enthusiastic fan who would rip on me for being a bad, naughty, dirty rotten Denverite for not supporting the home team.
What I did not
expect was to be invited as a guest for tonight's fundraiser at Morton's to benefit the Jake Plummer Foundation
. The "Savor the Grape for Charity" event tonight raises funds for the Alzheimer's Association and Family Tree. Jake and his teammates will mill around from 6 to 7 p.m. for a VIP reception at Morton's steakhouse in DTC, after which the only-average folks (that would be me) will join the crowd for a dinner buffet, music by Denver rocky-tonkers The Railbenders, wine tastings (Opus One, Jordan, Cakebread - heaven!) and a silent auction.
I'm thrilled. I get to skip the game, leave orange-and-blue ensembles completely out of my wardrobe, and I still get to attend the good parties. I'd say that's a home run. Er... I mean, touchdown, right?
