Thousands of Grateful Dead fans experience what it’s like to be in an athletic arena

As thousands of Grateful Dead fans gathered for a two-day concert last week at CU’s Folsom field, the moment was especially surreal for CU grads who’d never imagined themselves on a football field.  “On the one hand, I’m psyched to see what’s left of my favorite band of all time. I’m psyched to bob my head to 700 of my favorite songs, one blending totally indiscernibly into the next, and I’m psyched to wear this hat for the first time since ’95,” said Chris Gimeen (CU, ’99).  “On the other hand, I’m standing on what I assume is a football field, at least it seems like it based on the grass and the seats all around me, and these white lines on the grass. It’s a Rumble in the Jungle moment: happy and tragic all at once, like when I tell a woman I still listen to the Grateful Dead. .”

Denver Bronco Cheerleaders released their annual calendar this week – exciting fans in and out of the stands.  “Nothing gets me more riled up for a football game than going into my bathroom for a good long look at which days of the month go with which days of the week,” said calendar purchaser Brett Robbins. “What’s so great about football for me is that I can get pumped up about our home team even though I’ve never watched a football game in my life, and never would.”  

President Obama Intent on Winning over Boulder Voters

As the DNC heated up in Charlotte, NC, a reluctant Obama urged Democratic Party Monday to “go ahead and start” without him. The President insisted that he’d “be right there” as soon as he won over Colorado’s last conservative stronghold. “I personally believe Boulder has a lot of potential to vote “D” this election. I carry a message of hope and change and those are the sorts of things young people care about, even those on college campuses who drive bicycles and Subarus and don’t eat meat.”

In Historic Moment, The Sink Visited by Black Man

“At first, when I looked up from my burger, I was like ‘shit man, there’s some guy in a tie at the sink,'” said Junior Walter Rogers. “Then I looked harder, and realized it wasn’t just some guy, it was a black guy!  I’m pretty sure that moment is going to go a long way in debunking the myth that this campus is full of ignorant white kids.”
