Adding the backslash characters provided no change in operation of the 
script.  I'm about to use a very crude solution to this problem I'd 
prefer not to have to do, but sometimes you just got to take one for the 
team.  I'm going to put a sleep 600 command above the date command and 
so long as the actual download is completed in that amount of time the 
script should run successfully.
