The Border War – Who wins the Golden Golf Shoe?
This is the Always Time for 9 take on the classic Border War Football Game between Colorado State University and the University of Wyoming. The winner holds the coveted Bronze Boot for the year. I will try to be objective in my decisions but loyalty is a strong motivator. Mrs. Always Time for 9, my mother-in-law and father-in-law, one brother-in-law, and Always Time for 9 team member, Armchair Piper (Ed) are all alumni of CSU.
Let the competition begin and please forgive me if I am a little biased toward Colorado!
Colorado vs. Wyoming: Winner – Colorado. They have the Broncos; Rockies; Avalanche; Nuggets; Vail; The Broadmoor; Castle Pines. Wyoming has wind.
Fort Collins vs. Laramie: Winner – Fort Collins. No contest – I met and married Mrs. Always Time for 9 there many years ago!
Colorado State University vs. University of Wyoming: Winner- CSU. Please refer to the first paragraph. I need to live to see another day.
Green/Gold vs. Brown/Yellow: Winner – Tie. I’m more partial to the Blue/White of Aurora University.
Rams vs. Cowboys: Winner – Cowboys. Karen asked me how I could vote against that little cutie, “Cam, the Ram”? This comes from a Ft. Collins High graduate who’s mascot is a “Lambkin”. A mighty “Lambkin”?
Enough of this foolishness, it’s time for golf and the real challenge. Following are a few 9-hole courses from which to choose when traveling in Northern Colorado and/or Southern Wyoming.
