I went back and forth on whether I wanted to write a blog about this game. In the end I decided to do it because I need to get this out of my system.
The last time I remember being this upset over any professional sports anything was when the Rockies attended the World Series in 2007 and decided not to show up. That is exactly how I felt about Superbowl XLVIII. The Broncos may have been wearing their orange home jerseys but I didn’t recognize anyone on that field in New Jersey.
I can’t even begin to tell you how kerfuffled I am right now. Before the game began I was chatting with my wife about the Superbowl being in Arizona next year and Peyton Manning had agreed to play another season. We discussed how close Arizona is and how cool it would be if the Broncos were in the Superbowl next year and the possibility of actually attending the Superbowl if a lot of things fell into place.
Now I’m confident I wouldn’t make that trip to Arizona.
Ask the Broncos fans flying home who attended the game yesterday how they’re feeling and see how confident they are in ole Peyton’s post-season performance now and going forward. I’ll tell you what, that has got to be one depressing flight home. These Broncos fans probably spent upwards of 5 or 6 grand a piece and it wasn’t even a good game. In my opinion this was the worst Superbowl I’ve ever watched.
Even the commercials were extremely lame compared to previous years. An entire year to work on those commercials you’d think they could come up with some funnier stuff.
Way to go Joe…He’s the man, but I can’t believe they still let him attend Superbowl’s loaded. Don’t you love the way he flipped the coin before heads or tails was called? That’s a flip fail.
The game pretty much went downhill from this point…The first play.
Props to the mighty Seahawks. They were everything some arrogant fans said they were and more. They DOMINATED this entire game. I’ve never seen a team make the great P-F-M look more like an aging chump than the Seahawks did last night. What I needed to see was a tight game. I needed to see the Seahawks under pressure.
I needed to see the Seahawks defense scramble to adjust to Manning’s last-minute changes at the line.
I needed to see Knowshon Moreno having the game of his life.
I needed to see my man Pot Roast serving up some dinner.
I needed to see Champ Bailey seize this opportunity. You know,.. 15 years in the league and this being his first Superbowl and all.
I saw none of that, not even an onside kick after the half? Sometimes I wish John Fox had a pair. It’s the Superbowl and you go big or you go home a loser. Words can barely convey how disappointed I am in my team.
As I mentioned earlier, I’m not sure what I was watching but it didn’t look like the same Broncos team that I’ve seen breaking NFL records all season long. Now we get to start over which I find extremely depressing because even if the Broncos go 16-0 in next years regular season….
I have absolutely no faith that Manning can win the big game.
That folks,…just sucks…Think about it.
I’ve never heard of Bruno Mars before but I’ve been listening to the Red Hot Chili Peppers since the 80’s.
Again props to the Seattle Seahawks..Superbowl XLVIII Champions.
I’m “D” the Ranter…Always a Broncos fan.
Futures not so bright and bird shit ain’t right.
There’s nothing like an early morning tailgate party.
Bronco’s parking lots open at 9am for a 2:00 game. Either you’ve got your shit packed the night before or you’re gett’n up at the crack of dawn to load that car. Krista and I have no elaborate tailgating ensemble right now until the VW bus is finished. For now we just bring food, booze, our chairs, my Broncos cornhole game and a lot of enthusiasm.
We rolled in about 10 am and managed to get a decent spot to tailgate and play a lil cornhole. I wanted to get inside the Stadium a bit early so I wouldn’t miss the Todd Helton tribute.
Tebow to Jacksonville…Hmmm?

I was explaining to Krista what kind of Quarterback Michael Vick is. I was like the dude can run, he can throw, he can make plays happen when nothing is happening, however he’s just not reliable or likeable.
I like Michael Vick about as much as I like taking my dogs to the Vet.
I noticed I hadn’t heard any smack talk from ANY of my Eagle fan friends?? ..Yeah thought so
I can’t tell you how much fun the “Peyton Manning Show” has been this season. As a fan, 4-0, Manning with career and record numbers. Witnessing touchdown after touchdown. Yeah it’s a good year to be a season ticket holder.
Today I got a shot of the skydivers from outside the stadium.

Chiefs vs Broncos…Game 16
The last regular season game of the year. There were only two things Krista and I wanted to see happen today. A Broncos win, and news of the #1 seed in the AFC.
I love this feeling. Being a hardcore Rockies fan winning is a strange concept to me. Winning 11 in a row is way more than anyone anticipated at the beginning of this season.
After almost 15 years of the Broncos owning a lollipop factory, finally they don’t suck anymore.
Folks..Hold your head high…Being a Broncos fan carries some weight again. Even the Rockies Rally Squirrel jumped ship and now lives near Sports Authority Field.
I figure since Rockies fans don’t tail-gate the scraps here must be plentiful. Krista and I did a little Hill-Gating with Mike the Rox Addict before the game. We shared a few of Colorado’s finest and started making plans for our Spring Training trip in 2 months
Hill-Gating is partying on a hill next to where other folks are Tail-Gating. Admittedly not a great word but it’s my word. How many words do you have?

This Superbowl run is for you Champ.
Love the broncos Toque that Champ is wearing.
Don’t know what a toque is? Let me help you.
In Canada, toque, or tuque (pron.: /’tu:k/), is the common name for a knitted winter hat, or beanie. The Canadian English term was assimilated from Canadian French tuque. Toque first appeared in writing around 1870.
The fashion is said to have originated with the coureurs de bois, French and Métis fur traders, who kept their woollen nightcaps on for warmth during cold winter days. Such hats are known in other English-speaking countries by a variety of names, including beanie (American), watch cap or stocking cap; the terms tuque and toque are unique to Canada and northern areas of the United States, close to the Canadian border.
Now you know.

With Manning at the Helm…
Broncos straight up kick the Chiefs ass 38-3..Total Domination!
On a final Broncos note..Six years ago on Jan 1 2007 cornerback Darrent Williams was shot and killed on New Years Day, at 24 years of age…Sad
Here’s a video tribute to Darrent.
It’s been a year folks. Lots of ups and down in our Colorado Sports world. Blogging gained absolutely no credibility in 2012 and as such a lot of sporting events are trying to restrict what type of cameras can be brought into a Stadium or Arena. They are shying away from anything with a detachable lens.
Anyone that knows me knows I don’t sell my pictures. They are online for all to view and enjoy. There’s not a lot of people out there that do what I do quite like I do it. If you know me you know….I’m not “in it” for the money.
Shit… Being “in it” costs me money.
I rarely watch sports on TV because I love being there. That feeling of being a small part of something bigger, camera in hand waiting to catch that “perfect picture” whatever it may be that day.
Props to Coors Field and the Rockies and Sports Authority Field and the Broncos for not restricting my camera usage. I’m glad they realize I’m on their side. The Nuggets and the Pepsi Center are a different story.
Spring Training Road Trip will be early March 2013 for the Rox Addict and I.
My Spring training trip is shorter this year because we purchased a mountain ranch a month ago..
You’d think the perfect name for the ranch would be the Rockpile Ranch right? For some reason my wife doesn’t share my enthusiasm for that name. Since we’re at 9200 feet elevation the wife decided we’re gonna call it the…
“HIGH C RANCH”.
I’m “D” the Ranter.
Press Pass for the Ranter in 2013
From Krista, Hunter, Mylee , Elway, Nugget, Bronco, Karma Kitty and I…
Happy New Year and a prosperous 2013 to you…”D“
