Rick Reilly's Capitol tongue-bathing: Arousing!
On Monday, we told ou about ESPN columnist Rick Reilly's April promise to "tongue-bathe the Capitol dome if the Rockies make the playoffs" -- and his subsequent vow to make good on this lost bet. He proved as good as his (second) word yesterday, gamely lapping the golden cap in the presence of Colorado Governor Bill Ritter, who knows a good photo opportunity when he sees one. Granted, Reilly could have lingered longer: Here's hoping that when he's licking other domes during those special, private moments, he's not in such a hurry to move on. But at least he had a good line ready after he finished. According to him, the Capitol "tasted like crow."
