They're always there, on sidewalks and street corners, in front of strip malls, at fast food joints. You see them all the time, whether you want to or not. But as we detailed in this week's feature, "Spin City!," Denver's hundreds of sign twirlers face government regulations, patented tricks and the personal safety risks. Annually, AArrow Advertising hosts an international World Sign Spinning Championship to crown the best on the planet, but what about Denver? Who is the city's top twirler?
Maybe it's one of these guys, featured among the scores of YouTube videos dedicated to Denver's spinners. If you agree with the videos' creators, let us know. If not, nominate your own. We'll be sure to share the stories behind the most interesting of them.
Let us know where he or she works, and what makes your nominee the best. In the meantime, check out the artistry of these spinners.
