It was lighthearted joke because he knows fans make/made fun of him. He's here because it's Breckenridge obviously.
This was awesome. I've lived in Breckenridge for a while now and work for the rec department Joe is a pass holder and plays flag football and softball for rec leagues out here. His softball team won the championship last year, he was the QB of a flag football team that lost the championship. He's living the ski bum life....which is pretty cool of him. Nice guy, says he's here because the whole state of Ohio kicked him out. No Joke.
