Denver Fox

Question Sir,
Were you in downtown Denver this morning buying tickets for a show?

If so I was the guy in the grey jacket that sent you to the wrong line. Didn't think to ask you that before you (if it was you) headed back home. Sorry about the mistake (the line) if it was you.

If true, this would destroy my own mental image of Denver Fox.

I think of him as an International Man of Mystery, with a posse of people who do mundane daily tasks for him. I always thought he sent "his people" out to do daily chores.

Maybe you saw one of his many body doubles? I understand there are a whole fleet of Denver Fox look alikes, all part of a plan to increase his personal security.

My goodness!!

Actually, I don't ride my bicycle any more. I have "my people" do it for me.

My people and I rode to Confluence Park and back yesterday, and today my people and I rode on the trails around Parker.

So, I guess my people and I weren't buying any tickets for a show - by the way, for which show were my people and I not purchasing a ticket?

Is there another Denver Fox out there somewhere? Actually, using the internet, I did find not only another Denver Fox, but another Denver C Fox somewhere in the south. My people and his people corresponded for a bit, but they found each other boring!!

Oh man....now I'm all mixed up again.

Obviously it wasn't you or your people or you would know what show you were buying tickets for that I sent you to the wrong line to purchase said tickets to a show that your not attending. I wrongfully assumed after the fact because said gentleman that wasn't you or your people said during our conversation that he had ridden 22. 7 miles from the Parker area. If it had been you then of course you would know that you purchased tickets for the King TUT show for tomorrow at an unknown to me time.


Further please tell me that you rode early in the day because I got out to Cherry Creek Res by 830 and was already roasting and wilting. Only managed 20 miles and had to cal it quits.

Interestingly, my people and I and my wife saw the Tut exhibit just last week at DAM.

And, since my people and I had a dental appointment prior to my ride, my people and I actually rode from Cook Park to Confluence Park and back, not all the way from Parker - only about 17 miles, and my people and I took it easy - going only about 15 mph, so we did not get too hot.

Man, I'm feeling sooooo left out. I got no people or tickets to anywhere. But I do seem to spend a lot of time in the wrong lines.

Well you can't blame me for that. I only send you to wrong lines if your wearing bike shorts, a helmet and a camelbak.

I once had a boss who's name actually is John Smith. I jokingly asked him once what name he gave when checking into a fleabag motel.

Is there a date set for opening the new Cherry Cr trail section near Arapahoe?

I have a problem like that. I'm mixed up with the head writer of the Dave Chappelle Show.

From what I hear via the internet and un-named sources - Denver Fox does not always drink beer, but when he does, he drinks Dos Equis. Or was the the other international man of mystery?
