AND GETS YOU FIRED FROM SPORTS.

BUT I'VE ALSO LEARNED THAT THESUPERB OWL IS ABOUT SEATTLE AND

DENVER, THE NORTHWEST VERSUS THEWEST.

GRUNGE VERSUS COUNTRY.

PLAID VERSUS OTHER PLAID.

( LAUGHTER )AND MORE IMPORTANTLY, THESE ARE

THE BIG CITIES IN AMERICA'S TWOLEGAL POT STATES.

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ).

SO, WHETHER-- WHETHER YOU'REFROM THE MILE HIGH CITY OR THE

ABSOLUTELY BAKED CITY, YOU WANTTO WIN THIS GAME LIKE IT'S A BOX
