Cajun Chicken Ass Whipp’n

10-28-12

Saints vs Broncos

Game 7

In the spirit of New Orleans Krista and I stopped at Popeye’s Fried Chicken for a little Cajun feast while we tailgated..

The spicy chicken strips were pretty damn good.

But I figure victory tastes better :)…and doesn’t give you indigestion.

Full moon today.

Not sure if Evan Dalrymple is on vacation but some Country Western guy was singing the National Anthem.

Coin toss.

Hey…Nobody rides for free!

Thunder got a workout today.

I learned my lesson about working the next day after a Broncos Sunday night game.

I took Monday off :)

Sucks to hear about Joe Mays who fractured his left fibula and is out for an “extended time”.

Manning crushed his thumb on Saints defensive end Martez Wilson’s helmet after a 23 yard pass to Eric Decker. His thumb seemed to be a non-factor for the rest of the game as Manning became the second quarterback in NFL history to throw for at least 300 yards and three touchdowns in four consecutive games…WOW!

Broncos are now 4-3 and the rest of the season doesn’t seem so intimidating now huh?

I’m “D” the Ranter…

Football is back in Denver baby!!…Can you feel it?

Ranter’s Photo Contest 2013

10/23/12

Yeah buddy!

It’s time for another… “Ranter’s”

This time there’s a different theme.

My challenge to you this time is to submit a picture that describes why baseball in Colorado is better than anywhere else.

Is it because the our the Rockies players are cooler? Or is it the attitude? Maybe it’s better because Rockies fans are tight knit and we use baseball as a way to hang out? Use your imagination folks…You get points for creativity.

This Photo Contest is open to everyone… Even Mike the Rox Addict.

Here’s a link to last year’s photo contest:

Ranter’s Photo Contest winners 2011

Only picture per person, no substitutions!

Tom Helmer was the judge last time, maybe he’ll do it again for us?

I’m “D” the Ranter… Time to get your click on!

Meet Bob the Knob

I vote this:

“Best Use of a TV Seat Ever”

The story I heard about this guy is he was walking by the stadium on his way home from work. It was seriously late (about 1am) as the game had been rain delayed. Bob as I’ll call him picked up a 5 buck ticket and found his way down to a TV seat.

Here’s what happened next:


I’m “D” the Ranter.

If this dude doesn’t make you laugh you better check your pulse.

What would you do at 1 am if you had those TV seats to make the world remember you?

Raider Haters are Finally Celebrators

Game 4

Another perfect football day in Colorado.

Yeah you wished you lived here, but stay away…Colorado’s officially full!

To be honest I’m craving my first snow game, there were none last season(stupid perfect weather). If you didn’t know Krista and I along with most of Colorado are extreme Raider haters.

(This is not Krista )

The Raiders have chumped us way too many times of late and Raiders fans in Colorado have grown increasingly bold because of it.. Manning’s our ace in the hole and today’s mission was to reverse the four-year Raider domination in Colorado.

A couple of WTF’s? These two dudes were castaway from the Blue Man Group for being color blind.

Broncos have a new line of handbags for men called the Pansy Purse…Think I’ll stick to my backpack.

Folks, this is how you tailgate… You buy a used senior citizen shuttle bus and convert it Broncos style.

Boo, only thing missing in this gang is chains.

Manning pre-game.

Coin toss.

Raiders kick-off.

Manning’s first pass,…incomplete.

First drive touchdown, Manning to Dreesen. In your face Raiders :)

Extra point is good… 7-0 Broncos.

Manning flashing the Ranter sign :)

One thing I noticed was the total lack of Raiders fans. Normally Mile High is crawling with the black and silver.  I don’t think I noticed 100 Raiders fans in the entire place…That’s the way is should be.

Final Score of this long overdue blowout…

Thank you Broncos…I needed this win.

I’m “D” the Ranter…Mondays are much more tolerable when the Raiders fans are speechless.

Manning’s biological clock is ticking faster than a baseball card clipped to a bike tire that’s rolling downhill. There’s no time for  play’n around.

Broncos we need a win in New England next week!…”D”
