Colorado Rockies, Lodo, and Drag Racing

Here are a few facts about the Rockies, Lodo and Drag Racing...
1. I work across the street Coors field at Colorado Housing and Finance Authority (see picture out my office)
2. Colorado Housing and Finance Authority funds loans to companies creating jobs in Colorado...we financed Phoenix Apparel, Bruce Bowler's company, that is the official fine threads of NHRA.
3 Lodo is "lower downtown" in lower downton, down a street called Wazee is the headquarters of Gates Rubber. 'nuff said about them.

There you have it...your trivia for the day.
