When Joe and I were active in the Colorado Archeological Society we had the good fortune to take part in an archeology survey of part of Goose's ranch in a gorgeous section of the mountains north of Canon City.


First the Rockies in the World Series and now Goose in the Hall of Fame. Can it get any better? We can only hope!

At least you don't have the Roger Clemens saga staring you in the face every day.

I remember Goose from the Yankees. I used to love to watch him pitch. Congrats to him and to Colorado.
