There wasn't much left to Saturday but the time was spent lounging around, munching on Chinese takeout and drinking Coors beer.
Before making his phone call, he ordered a Coors just to get a feel for the place and adjust his eyes to the meager light.
Colorado-based Coors beer, cosponsor of the event, was also there with its products readily available, and Dean broke his training diet to share a few Silver Bullets with Fred.
The two exchanged the Coors beer and the evening's entertainment for a brief but pleasant stroll around the streets of Durango.
Dean could be back on Collingswood Avenue, listening to John Coltrane or Charlie Parker and patting Mrs. Lincoln, or catching a Phillies game on the tube, or eating pizza and slugging down a cold Coors beer.
