MUNSON'S GAZETTA: An Eggnog for OBNUG


As we approach the end of  football and in the spirit of the season I offer a toast to the OBNUG community for its exceptional year. I vaguely recall last year running across the OBNUG "site", but it bore little resemblamce to what we witness here now if memory serves.And "serve" it shall, an eggnog then; sweet, spicy, innocent yet with a subtle intoxication, cozy and always fraternal(who makes an eggnog for oneself?), eggnog is the "spirit of the spirit of OBNUG ".Cheers!

I noticed right away that the contributors each had their own "voice"i e  distinctive styles. I riffed on this in several ways; I compared them to the kung fu fighting forms, the Greek gods, Native American names. I did not mean this as flattery, but it is a singular accomplishment. Just as singers must have voice "quality"(think Jagger-you always know its him), writers need theirs. It is impressive that in a limited context(Broncos), the contributors are nonetheless able to define themselves, often in very spare posts.Here's to you (Clink!)

And what a year! In an inversion of the 2007 Fiesta Bowl's marriage proposal we had the "frank exchange of views" a la Garrotte, the punch viewed 'round the world. As the season unfolded we shared the sense of momentum building,augmented by OBNUG's weekly games, insights. potpurri. Your humble correspondent was even elevated and immortalized in the Urban Dictionary; words cannot describe my gratitude.

And speaking of me; it was suggested recently that although I have explicated on the contributors qua contributors,  I have never included myself. Ok here it goes. I see myself as The Sidebar Pimpernel, somewhat off the beaten path but always watching and embracing the caravan that is OBNUG. I compare myself to Toulouse Lautrec; he too stayed on the sidelines, and like him I enjoy sketching those engaging souls I encounter at the OBNUG "punchbowl".

And so thank you OBNUG for being my canvass, my subjects, my inspiration. Someone once said if you tug on anything hard enough the  world comes with it. We tug the Broncos, et voila! the whole world comes with  them.

I tug YOU too!
