Posted Tue Mar 27th by Tim Lynch
Good morning! My name is Tim Lynch. Many of you may know me from the many years I spent at Mile High Report, but I am now part of the BroncoTalk crew. I’ll try to bring some Broncos wholesomeness your way intermittently, but in the meantime I will be sporting the Daily Links here. Don’t be surprised if there is a similarity to MHR’s Horse Tracks in the format as I played a big role in that things evolution over there. I tried to change it up slightly, but I do things a certain way and being the creature of habit I am, I’ll continue doing it the way I am used to doing it. Links are links anyway…Enjoy!
