Friday’s Caption Contest

Here’s the picture for Friday’s Caption This Contest. I’m giving away a pair of tickets to Sunday’s Bronco’s/Bears game in Denver. And, considering we’re getting into the holidays, today’s picture is a little different, requiring some creative thinking on your part. So, either here or over on the KOA Facebook page, leave your best captions and we’ll announce the winner at 11:36 a.m.
