Hey Friends! BroncoTalk Fam, what is going on?
How’s everyone doing? Feeling antsy like me? Counting down the hours until we get a bit of redemption?
Wait, wait…let me guess.
Anyone worried about the possibility of a 0-2 start?
What would be the first 0-2 start since 1999, when Griese was under center and Olandis Gary was carrying the rock. We went 6-10 that season. We had also just won back2back Super Bowls, so big whoop if we lost a few games.
It’s safe to say the temperature has recently changed, figuratively and literally, I suppose. Thirty-two wins & thirty-two losses over the last 4 years, a tornado of bull crappenings, the new great definition of NFL mediocrity, wouldn’t you say? Maybe it’s time for #15 to call in some favors from the big man upstairs.
But this is no news, I am no prophet, just a guy who likes a football team. Don’t shoot the pessimist.
By the by, here’s my prophecy. I don’t think tomorrow gets us to 0-2. Like Ian, I have been known to be pretty good at predicting a thing or two when it comes to the Denver Broncos and football.
But what do I know.
- An open letter to all Tebowmaniacs
AKA: What I should be reciting to myself in the mirror daily (((where I actually have a photo of Tim Tebow posted) Yes, I know how pathetic this sounds, my girlfriend put it there as a joke & I’ve yet to take it down)….on purpose).
As a short recap, I grew up in Ohio. My parents were hard-core Browns fans, dog biscuits & all. I was looking for a way of rebellion, found my way through John Elway, the Broncos & The Drive. I’ve surrounded my life with orange and blue ever since, sorry Mom and Dad, don’t hate the player, hate the game. It could have been worse, I could have been a Steelers fan.
However, with my pro-football loyalty lying solely in the state of Colorado, my MLB, NBA and NCAAF held steadfast in good ole’ O-H-I-O. Tribe/Cavs/Buckeyes. Sorry BroncoTalk fam, don’t hate the player, hate the game.
Anyway, to make a long story…not so long, more like medium to medium-long. I was a huge Lebron James fan. For a Cavs fan, the pain…it goes without saying. I’m sure you all can relate with this Carmelo soap opera unfolding. I said it goes without saying, but I’ll say it anyway, it literally broke my heart. Pathetic? Yes. I am aware. That’s the kind of stupid, incomprehensible, useless cathartic ish that we as sports fans put ourselves through. Don’t ask me why.
It was my fault, not only for caring too much, but for turning Lebron James into a demigod. The scary part of it all, was that he had never done anything to make us Ohioans question otherwise. *He was born there, raised there, played there, and we hoped he would stay there.
In the end, he didn’t stay. Neither did I. I can’t be upset about that. It was just upsetting to find that the guy who was “our guy”, wasn’t.
So, Tebowmaniacs, heed this warning, learn from my mistakes with me.
2 rushes for 2 yards, that’s hardly god-like. And maybe that’s a good thing.
Wait, scratch that. What I meant to say is, isn’t it ironic that in the same year Lebron James #6(66) tries to drag me to hell, kicking and screaming, I have a new messiah to follow? TEBOW!!!!!
A little too ironic, and yes I really do think.
GB2= Golf Balls + Go Broncos
By the way, our running game stunk last week right?
*Slogan coined by the guys at ilthy.com. An awesome clothing company started by Glen Infante, based out of Cleveland, Ohio. Yeah, they have a lot of Clevelandized shirts, but are branching out fast and have a few in their NFL Busta’s collection you guys may be interested in.
