Observations From a Municipal Parking Lot

Having just strolled across a parking lot in which I spotted a car that had been "booted" with the infamous Denver boot, two thoughts flashed through my mind:

  1. When I first saw the "boot" twenty years ago, it was orange, not yellow; and
  2. If I were a rich man, I would purchase a soccer franchise, move it to the Mile-High City, and call it the Denver Boot.
The second observation inspires further reverie. Would my team have cheerleaders, and would I call them the Denver Booty? And would my choice of team name become a laughing stock were we to lead the league in penalties?

Perhaps it's best that I stay in Pittsburgh.
