My week always goes better when the Broncos win... How about them Broncos! In case you missed it, the Denver Broncos showed up again for a football game and beat the Patriots in overtime yesterday. That makes 'em 5 wins, 0 losses. Wow! I never expected that type of turnaround after the last couple years my Broncs had.
Additionally, if you missed it, the Broncos wore "throw back" uniforms that are in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and the team liked them so well originally that they burned them on the 50 yard line way back when at Mile Hi Stadium. Not only were the colors not great, but those verticle stripped socks.... I'm still speechless.
The Patriots and the Broncos have a long and colorful history. The very first Americal Football League (AFL) game was played between the Patriots and Broncos... Broncos won that one too. Broncos have been whipped pretty bad a few times too though but I won't dwell on that!
One of my favorite memories of a Broncos Patriots game was tight end Shannon Sharpe of the Broncos being shown on national TV during a Bronco blowout of the Patriots picking up a field phone, calling the US President, and saying... "Mr President, you need to call out the National Guard because the Broncos are killing the Patriots".
On another note, today is Margie's birthday. I know I'm not supposed to tell how old for some reason, but for those that are SNL fans, she can "kick, stretch, and kick."
