Peyton Manning, Business Savant

 

It ties together Denver Broncos football and a political victory for libertarians, so this bit of Friday lightheartedness may as well be gift-wrapped for Mollie. From HuffPo:

Colorado voters passed Amendment 64 last Tuesday, a law that legalizes marijuana in the state for recreational use. The timing couldn’t be better for Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning … Just two weeks ago, Manning purchased 21 Papa John’s franchises in Colorado.

Man, this guy just cannot miss.

    It is all about perceiving the market and timing. Question is does the ex-head of the choom gang lay off enforcment?

    Keep an eye on Peyton. Let me know if he buys any gun distributorships. 

    And does anyone know the price of a one-way ticket to Ireland? I ask merely for information…

    Furthermore, speaking as a mildly deranged Bronco fan, he can still read a defense and hit a receiver (not that that will matter to the more liberal Bronco fans anymore).

    No. Lay offs are only in the private sector.

    Meh. I’d be more impressed if he had bought Taco Bell franchises.

    Huh?

    Okay–I’m a bit over 50. And even when I was a teenager, I was the “good kid” who sang in the church choir. 

    What’s the relationship between Papa John’s Pizza and legalizing marijuana? And what do brownies and mint chocolate chip ice cream have to do with it?

    And I’d really appreciate it if your explanation used short sentences, stayed in the active voice, and didn’t use words of more than two syllables. I’m easily confused….

    There’s no business like bong business, there’s no business I know.

    Everything about it is appealing, everything that FDA will allowNowhere could you get that happy feeling when you are stealing that extra hit…

    Ok I’m off to the Circle K.
