College Football Playoffs Anyone?
Thank you Mr. President Elect
Nothing sounds better to me then the next leader of the free world standing up and announcing that what the world needs now, are playoffs, sweet playoffs. If he pulls that off, I'm ready to start the petition to add him to Mt. Rushmore. The truth of the matter is, I really, really enjoy drawing Barack Obama and I just might not get that many chances being a sports cartoonist and all. So you take 'em when you can get 'em.
One of those Days
I did some 13 roughs to get to this image. That happens sometimes. Lately, I feel as though my mind is divided into 75 different office cubicles, none of them really wanting to work with or talk to the guy in the next cubicle unless there are doughnuts and coffee involved. And I guess that is to be expected in the current circumstances here at this grand Colorado institution known as the Rocky Mountain News. All of us here are sort of on pins and needles as we await word on whether our company has found a buyer for the paper. We're still dedicated to bringing you the very best newspaper and website we possibly can but, still, on occasions our minds do wander a bit, wondering what our future holds.
I've been blessed
It all makes me very grateful to be a cartoonist in the current economic climate. Through the years I've had the great pleasure of getting to know some of you who read my daily sports cartoons. That's been the very best part of this job. Words will never express how much it means to me that you have allowed one of my cartoons to be a part of your day. Have a great Colorado weekend. If you can, get out and take a walk around the neighborhood, or better yet, one or our states many amazing hiking trails. Soak it up. Breathe it in. And be thankful for the simple joys of life.
