The Colo. legislature drops the ball…again…literally

It’s the last day of the legislative session, which means the rubber-band balls have once again been dropped from the rotunda in the Capitol. (Puts me in mind of the Democrats dropping the ball on redistricting…)

Sen. Shawn Mitchell R-Broomfield, didn’t disappoint when during a break in the action on Wednesday, he dropped three rubber-band balls all the way down to the basement level. The big ball, Mitchell said, was made by Sen. Scheffel’s staff. The ball dropping tradition started last year…

“My intern, Cassie Hancock, built a rubber band ball throughout the session last year,” said Mitchell. “On Sine Die, we had the idea to drop it from the dome. I announced it at a break in the Senate and we had a pretty good crowd assemble. The boom and high bounce were amazing. It was pretty funny. When I announced it this year, an even bigger crowd of lawmakers and staff gathered in the hall and at the rails. Now it’s a tradition.”
