Kong Off II visit Denver, Colorado November 16-17, 2012
I was looking forward to playing some video games at the Kong Off 2 Event at the 1UP and
meeting friends that I only get to see during these events as we all live in different
States. Being from California my main concern was how well I would do in the cool
temperatures of the mile high city, of Denver. To my surprise the weather was very nice,
no rain, no snow or any other problems. Day time temperatures were about 70 degrees so
there was no problem at all in freezing to death. I took some time to take pictures
of the surrounding area and visited the Coors Baseball field, Science Museum and Denver
The result of my sight seeing tour is within these pictures I took which show the
skyline and interesting buildings in Denver, Coloraado.
Denver Colorado is a progressive city and is constantly growing as shown with cranes.

The Player (Bronze Statue)
"It is not the honor that you take with you but the heritage you leave behind." Branch Rickey
Wesley Branch Rickey (December 20, 1881 – December 9, 1965) was an innovative Major
League Baseball executive elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1967. He was known
for breaking Major League Baseball's color barrier by signing African American player
Jackie Robinson, for drafting the first Hispanic superstar, Roberto Clemente, for
creating the framework for the modern minor league farm system, for encouraging the
Major Leagues to add new teams through his involvement in the proposed Continental
League, and for introducing the batting helmet.
