Today is my birthday, and while I generally don't get overly excited for my date of birth, the present I received has me completely revved up.
I'll be taking my first trip to Denver in October. October 1st.
I'll also be attending my first Avalanche game in Denver. Against the Sharks. On October 1st.
Joe Sakic was my childhood hero, and now that I'm getting the chance to see his number retired, I'm in complete and utter shock.
If anyone from Colorado is reading this, I'd appreciate some suggestions on what to do or where to go before and after the game. I'm flying in the day before and leaving the night after so I will have some free time to explore the city a bit.
