Look how proud that reporter is of making the joke. He nailed it. Credit to him. He had that one lined up and delivered. Got a little chuckle out of me because you can tell he had that one in his back pocket just hoping the Nuggets won game 1. I mean, I'm sure he's not lying. It's Denver. It's also 2023 and weed is legal basically everywhere so who cares? I just laugh at the reporter because it's peak local news.
It also shows it ain't easy being a fan, especially a Nuggets fan. You had to wait years to get over the hump with Jokic. You had to sweat out a Jamal Murray ACL injury. For about a week all you heard is how no one is talking about the Nuggets because they are boring and Celtics/Lakers would have dominated ratings. Who gives a shit? The Nuggets are awesome. But you need to unwind after seeing that first win. It's not over, but you got the first one. Celebrate. Who gives a shit? If you unwind with weed or beer, go have a night. It's a Thursday in the summer, so you know Friday is a light work day anyways, might as well enjoy yourself.
The generic polo shirt sells it too. There's no way that thing is comfortable. It's not dri-fit. It's not even a golf polo. It's one of those polos every dad had back in the 90s. We can't get the guy an updated polo? Have a series, Denver. Smoke weed after every game. Celebrate because you're in the Finals. This is what being a fan is all about.
