(Steve Wears Gray T-Shirt Each Day At Work; Co-Workers "Grossed Out" - December 17, 2010)
BUENA VISTA, CO - Can you imagine wearing a t-shirt for 17 straight days?
Steve "Colorado Guy" Garufi
has shown his dedication by wearing his "lucky shirt" 17 consecutive days in preparation
for this weekend's battle
in the semifinals of his fantasy football league.

Steve has continually wore his gray t-shirt he won in 2007, and believes it will help him have more "mojo"

cider poured all over his head like champions do in other professional sports.

school to celebrate a first-ever Garbage Cans championship.
