Was in the Keys chasing tarpon (they won, by the way) and having a little get together for my wife’s 50th, fun stuff. You all know I’m an ole Miami boy so I get back to the Keys quite often to fish tournaments and fish on my own. While there this week, we did a Friday night radio show with Gary Dunn (former Pittsburgh Steeler) and Jimmy Johnson (everyone knows him) and Capt. Bill Kelly our host and myself.
It was a hoot. We discussed the fact that the U had a 14 year run of first round selections until this past draft and they have a long way to go to get back to the status we once had. A few fishing stories were told and and we got into a debate in which Jimmy agreed with me that when a defensive lineman (Gary Dunn) gets blocked they think they were held (me) cry babies.
Jimmy’s opening a new Restaurant & Bar on the water in Key Largo called the Big Chill next to the old Caribe Club and has a grand opening this weekend for Memorial day. Terry Bradshaw and a bunch of former Cowboys will be there.
Jimmy lives in the Keys and is one of the most friendly guys you’ll ever meet. Gary Dunn owns the OV (Ocean View Hotel and Sports Bar) across from the Theatre of the Sea in Islamorada, on Windley Key.
We sang happy birthday to my wife at the bar/restaurant with a slice of Key Lime pie. We talked about the charity tournaments we participate in and and all the athletes that have shared their time with the public and kids during the events to make them such a hit.
On the home front….I have to be honest, I’ve been glued to the tube watching the Nuggets play incredible basketball. We’re only about six weeks out from Bronco camp and things are a little quiet, so the Nuggets have been a breath of fresh air with a new attitude and fight.
Kind of an update rather than a Broncos Blog this week, I was on the move between Key West, Marathon and Islamorada staying at different friends houses and actually forgot my data cord for my old laptop I take to connect to my phone for internet connection.
The tarpon are in full migration and it’s a pretty interesting spectacle to see in nature. Big fish!!
