Meet Denver's hottest construction worker (sign)

Say hello to the hunkiest construction-safety sign ever. It's the kind of sign that makes you proud to be an American, and it's hanging on the fence that surrounds the dirt hole at 12th Avenue and Broadway that will one day be the new History Colorado Center. (Is it just us or does hunky construction-safety man sort of look like an older, wiser, more buff Wild Bill, of G.I. Joe fame?)

Either way, Denver is happy to have him. Almost regal in his stance, he looks as if he's about to build The. Most. Important. Building. Ever.

It's unclear if the History Colorado Center -- which is strangely not called the Colorado History Center, and is scheduled to be completed in the fall of 2011 -- fits the bill.

But if it makes Safety Man happy, it makes us happy.
