Lay it all out there:

What I Believe:

  • I believe that freedom is the most important ideal in this world.
  • I believe that I should mind my own business and other people should do the same.
  • I believe the Broncos will be 10-6 next year.
  • I believe the Rockies will be NL West champs in 2008.
  • I believe that "Stone Gods" will not be as good as "The Darkness".
  • I believe that one should refrain from giving money to beggars on the street.
  • I believe that being a called a nerd is the greatest compliment one can give me.
  • I believe that people should be able to love whoever they would like to love.
  • I believe that those people should get the same rights that I do.
  • I believe that the Cherry Cricket has the best burgers in Denver.
  • I believe that the time for change is upon us, but. . .
  • I believe that ethanol is not the answer.
  • I believe that politicians are scumbags.
  • I believe that the writers' strike needs to end soon.
  • I believe in equality across the board (sex, race, orientation, age, etc.).
  • I believe that the term "hate crime" does more harm than good. How is killing a person for their skin color worse than killing someone because they annoy you? A victim is a victim. Period.
  • I believe affirmative action has gone too far. We need to promote equality, not favoritism.
  • I believe that there is nothing better than standing on the top of a mountain in Colorado.
  • I believe that cold weather is wonderful.
  • I believe that CU is full of hippies, Wyoming is full of hicks, and Air Force can't throw.
  • I believe that dogs are superior to cats.
  • I believe I hate cats, actually.
  • I believe Firefox is better than IE.
  • I believe Chuck and Dick are terrible owners.
  • I believe they can redeem themselves in the next few years with a commitment to winning (meaning $$ and a good product).
  • I believe Troy Tulowitzki is the second coming of Jeter.
  • I believe that I will actually like Troy, though.
  • I believe that organized religion often loses sight of the real goals.
  • I believe Focus on the Family is one of the worst organizations in the country.
  • I believe they should focus on their own damn family.
  • I believe that athletes get paid too much and teachers get paid too little.
  • I believe that this won't change until they start having spectators in the classroom.
  • I believe that all people deserve health care, however. . .
  • I believe that I shouldn't have to pay for other people's health care.
  • I believe that Led Zeppelin and the Beatles are the greatest rock bands of all time.
  • I believe that my true calling is bullriding.
  • I believe that I just lied.
  • I believe that I am a genuinely good person, but. . .
  • I believe that I can flip the switch at any moment.
  • I believe that the perfect night is a steak dinner on the grill, a movie in the DVD player, an open bottle of Riesling, and the wife and I cuddled under a blanket.
  • Finally, I believe that this list will actually generate some comments (cross my fingers!).

all sounds great, however, I believe you forgot something on the great night comment. You forgot to mention the 3 dogs cuddling next to you and the Mexican on the chair.

I totally agree about the Cherry Cricket, we just ate there a few nights ago and the burgers are great.

Ah the mandatory Mexican on the couch and the dogs on the floor. Must have forgotten about them. . .

And now I want a cheeseburger.

I believe that professional athletes are paid exactly what they should be paid because that is what the market demands.

I believe that we should open the market to teachers as well so that the good ones can make more money, and the bad ones won't be shielded under the umbrella of their union.

I believe that nothing is as good as The Darkness

I agree that nothing is as good as The Darkness, nothing.

I believe you forgot to mention your man love for Matt Holliday.

Mike Flick said...

Excellent point, Gutter. So I add. . .

I believe that I would consider leaving my wife for the following men: Matt Holliday, Todd Helton, Joe Mauer, Troy Tulowitzki.
