John Elway, Todd Helton, Joe Sakic these are all of your standard heroes in Denver and I'd be lying to you if I said that I didnt love each one of them. But recently i started to look back on my life realize that i haven't really reached the apex of any sports that I've played. After a couple hours of crying in the dark and watching Bruce Lee montages to build my self esteem back I decided that i needed to adjust my heroes to people that relate to me. I was a J.V. player and a varsity full time benchwarmer, inserted into practices to get dunked on by the allstars on varsity who could i possibly bond with and look up to WHO ???? And than it hit me Renaldo freaking Balkman. I love this guy not for whatever it is that he apparently does to stay on the team but for who he is. I swear to god i think i saw him eating popcorn on the sidelines during games. I think the best thing for us to do with him since were paying him is to have him update the fans via twitter on whats really going on during the game, give us the inside scoop on what was said during the timeout, the activities on the court etc. This sounds crazy but why not at least he would get to do something on game nights besides layup lines and sitting court side.
In all seriousness i do like the potential he looks like he has, when i see him in games for more than 3 minutes he brings a good level of energy, will grab some boards and it looks like his teammates love him. From one benchwarmer to another I feel your pain but i believe in you !!
