Bob Seger had it right.
Shit. Denver? Man I don’t like that team. The reasons are varied and multiple, but mainly it was because I lived in Colorado for 3 years, and every other radio ad, print ad, or television ad was John Elway’s car wash, John Elway’s Launromat, John Elway’s Jeep dealership, John Elway’s Chevy dealership, or John Elway’s dildo emporium and sex shop. Beyond that, you had the Rocky Mountain news posting daily updates on John Elway’s travel plans, eating habits, and bowel movement schedule.
It was enough to make one sick. Plus, their fans are annoying as hell. Orange Crush? Please. A pass rush named after a soft drink? Laaaaame. It was also more onerous because the Rockies didn’t exist yet, and the Nuggets have always been an afterthought anyway. To make things worse, the local TV stations would often pre-empt the national football games and show the Broncos on 2 separate stations! Fuckers. Many a time the 49ers would be knocked off the national schedule so 2 different local stations could show the game! Ass hats !This forced me to hunt down a bar who would show the game. Fortunately there was a bar in town called Little Annie’s whose owner was a 49er fan, so he’d show games that were pre-empted locally.
So, needless to say, I was highly disappointed that the Broncos didn’t choke that game away yesterday. The Broncos defense held Brady in check for large parts of the game, but still nearly choked it away as Peyton Manning was ineffective and largely a non-factor. Denver’s defense gave their offense a ton of field position advantage, yet couldn’t seal the game til the botched 2 point conversion. No huge love lost for Tom Brady and Belichick, but I guess I’ll take solace in Peyton manning being thoroughly embarrassed again in the biggest game.
The Carolina game? Yikes. Carson Palmer went from a shit game against Green Bay to an epic sewer dive yesterday. Any time the Cards would do something positive to even get close to making it a game, Palmer would throw into triple coverage for a pick while standing calmly in the pocket. Blehhh. Too bad, so sad.
I think Carolina wins in a runaway, 38-13
