As Labor Day weekend quickly approaches, it only means one thing, ok maybe it means a few things but either way the Rocky Mountain Showdown is upon us once again!
In years past the debate between participating in the widely popular Tour de Fat put on by New Belgium and attending the biggest football rivalry in Colorado has been a big issue for many. Well this year they got the scheduling right and you won’t have to pick and choose! The Rocky Mountain Showdown will be taking place at Sports Authority Field at Mile High on Sunday, September 1st at 4pm.
Both the Colorado State University Rams and the University of Colorado Buffaloes have had this day marked on their calendars since they met last year, when the Rams came out on top with the 22-17 win. Players, alumni and football fans in general have seen this rivalry go back and forth over the last few years and it’s sure to be a hard fought game again this year. So, we suggest taking the time to enjoy this in-state rivalry that dates back to 1893 no matter who you’re cheering for.
We know that some of you have been planning your game days plans for weeks if not months now. Whether it’s getting to the parking lot early to claim your favorite tailgate spot or showing up early at your favorite sports bar to get the best spot in front of the big screen, it’s a great day to share a cold beer with friends (maybe even an enemy). Beer sure to pack the cooler with plenty of beers for you and your tailgating companions, running out would be a rookie mistake. Also, many locations will be running game day drink specials all across the state so be sure to ask your server or bartender if you go out!
Don’t forget to plan ahead and have a sober means of transportation if you are partaking in beers and libations.
