Considering this silly argument over the age old thread busters who continually jump in whenever the Big Thompson is referred to as the "Big T" about how it's not really the Big T, the Big Thompson shall never be referred to as the Big T ever again. I don't know why we didn't think of this before we wrote the book. There are many great names, though not as short that we can use. The Big Tommy, The Big Johnson, The Gonzo run etc. Montana boys are so picky after they move to CO.
