If Denver wins Seattle keeps the only trophy that counts, but the fan base has another lame thing to hang their collective hats on.

Revenge game! Broncos host the Seahawks tonight at Mile High hoping to redeem themselves for that 43-8 thumping in Super Bowl 48 (not really. It’s just a shitty preseason game that injects more cash into the owner’s pockets while not having to pay the players. Manning plays a series. Are the tickets priced accordingly? Nope. Full-price suckers! It’s like watching the future of the Arena League on a full-sized field!).

Anyhoo…Game is on KKTV 11 starting at 700pm. Ron Zappolo and John Lynch have the call. Here’s something that’s more entertaining that tonight will be:

John Elway At The Baseball

Would you look who showed up at Security Service Field at Mile High on Saturday:

Sox fall 16-12 to the Express.
OMG! It’s John Elway!

He was there because his old college roommate at Stanford is Steve Buechele, the  Round Rock Express manager.

So, what’s the great John Elway do at a minor league baseball game you ask? You know, the usual, sit around all game eating copious amounts of sunflower seeds…

Sox fall 16-12 to the Express.

…drinking some High Quality H2O…

Sox fall 16-12 to the Express.
Water is just so damn refreshing.

…and checking his phone…

Sox fall 16-12 to the Express.
Nope. Says here we’re still losing the Super Bowl.

…and just shooting the shit with these two dudes (sorry. No idea who they are)

Sox fall 16-12 to the Express.
Yup. That’s John Elway. Just hanging out with a couple of his buds.
(foot and cap in foreground do not belong to his buds)

Round Rock defeated the Sky Sox 16-12 in a game that didn’t last over 4 hours. Hope you enjoyed the game John!

Dumpster Fire

The Denver Broncos’ dumpster fire of a performance in the Super Bowl added yet another chapter in the long history of Denver crapping the bed under the bright lights of football’s biggest stage.

Hey! It’s a safety/pick six/offense crap-fest!

Having survived the first four implosions, 78, 87, 88 & 90, and celebrated the two wins, 98 & 99, we were numb to this year’s embarrassing festival of turds. Still, they did suck us back in, even after last year’s soul-crushing collapse to the Ravens, and they made us care again and again. They always seems to give us just enough hope that this year was going to be different. Kay-riste! We sure was stupid! Well, no more!

Every Bronco Player received this wonderful ribbon for playing in the Super Bowl.

Yeah! No more! At least until next year when we go through this same thing again.
