Here’s one good reason to vote Vic Lombardi the voice of the DIA train

Colin D. | February 14, 2018

Despite his overwhelming qualifications for the task, however, I have decided not to cast my vote for Alan Roach. For one simple reason I am supporting Altitude’s Vic Lombardi. It’s because it had become clear that if Vic doesn’t win he’s going to talk about it every day on his morning radio show, the Vic Lombardi show on AM 950 KKSE. Click the read more link below.

 

In the highly contested and somewhat bloody battle between media personalities to be the welcoming voice on the subterranean trains at Denver International Airport (DEN) I initially backed the incumbent,  the golden voiced Alan Roach. His call is the most iconic not only among the male candidates (himself, Jeremy Hubbard, Gary Shapiro, Mike Nelson and Vic Lombardi), but it’s one of the most recognizable in the free world. Roach performs stadium announcements at the grandest events including the Super Bowl and the Olympic games. Who could possibly be a better choice?

Despite his overwhelming qualifications for the task, however, I have decided not to cast my vote for Alan Roach. For one simple reason I am supporting Altitude’s Vic Lombardi. It’s because it had become clear that if Vic doesn’t win he’s going to talk about it every day on his morning radio show, the Vic Lombardi show on AM 950 KKSE.

I love that show. The last thing I or any other listener wants is a jilted Lombardi carrying on for the next twelve months about how he was slighted by the voters of Denver. I want to hear him harass Will Peterson and clash with James Merilatt not opine endlessly about how he was born in Denver and attended college at CU and all that. If he’s not elected the voice of the DIA train he’ll piss and moan about the fact that whomever won never even attended a game at McNichol’s Arena or ate at the Breakfast King or remembers when the Federal Theater still showed movies.

Forget that DIA isn’t really even in Denver. Symbolically it’s the gateway to the Mile High City and it has become abundantly clear that it’s important to Vic that he be the gatekeeper. Nobody in the contest has promoted him or herself as vigorously as he has.  

Vic Lombardi is a small man – and not only in stature. He’s just narcissistic and shallow enough to make it everybody’s problem if he doesn’t win this stupid contest. So, please, vote early and vote often for Vic Lombardi. Create a dozen fake Hotmail accounts and visit the DIA web site once an hour for the next twelve hours. Do what has to be done, Denver. Let’s preserve our sanity. Vote Vic.
