Abstract: The author was chosen by the Mayor of Denver to serve for approximately three months on a task force that would negotiate relationships with the Denver Nuggets and the Denver Broncos regarding their perceived needs for new stadiums. This public/private sector negotiation resulted in the development of the Pepsi Center in Denver. Little did the author know upon accepting the appointment that three months would turn into three years. The author’s participation in this volunteer counseling assignment earned him The Counselors’ 1999 James Felt Creative Counseling Award.
