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."
