12/20/09 Broncos vs Raiders Invesco Field at Mile High
I don’t have the opportunity or money to attend a lot of Broncos football games. Since they built Invesco Field at Mile High and tore down the old Mile High Stadium ticket prices for a Broncos game have become ridiculious.
I picked up these tickets in August for Krista’s birthday present.(Thanks Dan). We never miss the Broncos/Raiders game.
I’m not so sure you could say the same about a Broncos fan working his way back to his car in Oakland.
Bronco fans take their tailgating seriously. Krista and I had spent the previous night in Colorado Springs at a long time friend of ours X-mas party so our tailgating consisted of a six-pack and a couple of Subway subs.
With that said we had food and booze… what more do you need to successfully tailgate?
Ok,… one of these contraptions might be nice but remember folks I was scraping just to afford the damn tickets in the first place…Cool stuff though. The parking lot was filled with Bronco vehicles and maniacs of all kinds.
Notice it says “The Greatest Superfan Ever…Nice touch Broncos.
Did I mention it was a beautiful day?
It’s not often you can catch a Broncos game in December and not need a heavy jacket.
As I had hoped, before the game started there was a video tribute to the Barrel Man. Instead of a moment of silence they called for a Broncos Cheer. Additionally they did the wave starting in the South Stands until the game started.
That was cool. I have no idea what else the Broncos Organizaton may have planned for the memory of the Barrel Man. I did notice during the game when they were trying get the fans pumped up the Barrel Man would pop up on the big screen and give a cheer…I liked that.
Here are some more random pictures.
Don’t even ask me what the hell this was.
The Raiders had our number today. The Broncos defense was non-existant. Kyle Orton was totally off his mark today and it’s not easy to miss Brandon Marshall as he’s a really big dude with long arms.
Here’s a shot of the almost final score.
Second year in a row the Raiders have beat the Broncos at home and we paid to see it. The Broncos lost this one in the last minute of the game. Such is football I guess.

Today’s his big day (hopefully). The guy has arms the size of my legs and and an ego of similar size.
Here’s why I think he should be in the Hall of Fame.
Sharpe was selected All-Pro four times. He’s played in eight Pro Bowls 1992-1998, and has surpassed 1000 yards in three different seasons.
In his 14 year career, Sharpe had 815 receptions for 10,060 yards along with 62 touchdowns in 204 games.
He’s also the proud owner of three Super Bowl rings.
And on top of all that, he’s a stand up guy and a snazzy dresser.
“I won’t talk about someone’s mother. I won’t talk about their girlfriend or their wife, but if you have a deformity, I would talk about that.”When asked about who he would invite to a dinner party Sharpe responded with “Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Michael Jordan
and Halle Berry. I’d talk to Gates, Buffett and Jordan first, and then me and Halle would go get another table in the back that’s candlelit, and I’d let them discuss whatever they want to discuss.”
I loved Sharpe’s attitude.
The guy was always talking smack but like a Dion Sanders he could back it up.
I appreciate all the comments from the LaMar’s donut entry and all ideas for my F’ed up computer. We’ve got quite the creative bunch of writer/readers/eaters/marksmen/stunt drivers here in the sphere. Unfortunatly none of your ideas could be legally carried out within the city limits , but I thank you for your input anyway.
I’m starting to see a few more Rockies blogs within MLBlogs.com. All I can say is…..
I’m just not going to go searching for you if you know what I mean.
It would be inspiring to see more Rockies blogs in the top 100.
Be proud Rockies fans, I’ll keep chugging along, but I’m hurting for some real live, in front of me, damn that ball almost hit me, dude you spilled beer down the back of my shirt, hey, was that a raindrop?, can I see your ticket please?, that’ll be $15 for the hot dog and coke, why is there always a line when I have to pee?, did I just see a freggin balk?, yes you can have a cotton candy, look Hunter we’re first in the Pavilion again, kind of baseball. I need the real deal.
Props to the MLB network launching here shortly. How cool is this going to be, 24/7, whatever your schedule baseball at your fingertips. It’s been a long time coming and we’re ready, thank you MLB,..seriously.
I hope it’s a huge success.
I don’t know what’s happening in Colorado. A week back sub-zero temperatures, now this morning I wake up and take a gander out at my back yard and I couldn’t believe it.
I had to rub my eyes because I saw a tornado of trash encircling the entire backyard. I opened the sliding glass door and a massive blast of wind blew a stack of papers off of the dinner table all over the place. It was a freaky warm, early morning hurricane of some sort. The winds had to be at least 100 MPH or more.
I witnessed the funniest thing this morning, I watched a shopping cart flying across a parking lot about 90 MPH and hit a cement block used in the parking lots.
When the cart hit the slab, it did a complete 360 landing right back on it’s wheels.
That was insane, it’s too bad I was the only witness. I swear it happened.
I was glad when I finally saw someone pull up and park next to my car. Let them pay the $500 deductible for the shopping cart damage.
Now I know why I will never live anywhere near the ocean, or Gulf. I can’t handle extreme weather like that. I kept waiting for a schard of wood or glass or a fork to impale me as I ran to the door of my building.
Shoot, at that speed anything is a possible projectile.
I wonder if Boulder even still exists? They’re a little higher up elevation and usually get it worse. Eventually the wind died down around 9am.
My kids cleaned up the backyard before I could take a picture. It was a freggin mess.
Football note: All I can say about my Denver Broncos is: John Elway thanks for the years man. Somehow it always seemed more exciting when you ran the show. Now,…not so much, oh well, maybe next year.
I’m a little under the weather today, so I’m not going to be hosting the blog radio program tonight at 9pm. I’m not trying to weasel out of it whatsoever (I will do it), I just have a stomach thing and lets leave it at that.
12/7/08 Denver Broncos vs the Kansas City Chiefs
We showed up early for the Broncos game so we could get a good parking spot to do some serious tailgating.
Usually 3 1/2 hours before kickoff will do it, but not always. Today it worked.
We snagged a really good spot, kicked back and waited for our KC Chiefs friends Andy and Amalie to show up.
Then we grilled up some tasty brats, some pulled pork, and a can of beans.
Perfect food to absorb the beverages.
After we ate we took a walk around to check out the scene.
Here’s the Broncos Caddy.
This is a sweet ride.
Even the the horse on top of Invesco Field at Mile High was glad to see us.
It was a perfect day to watch Bronco football live.
My first day back in Colorado and I’m fortunate enough to get weather like this.
Here’s a shot of the crowd to the left of me, and one the right.
Lots of fans who were really into the spirit of things.
The Broncos didn’t fare so well at home after the first quarter. These lovely ladies kept coming onto the field to take our mind off of the score. That was nice of them.
Here’s Cutler getting ready to start this drive or a touchdown, putting the Broncos up.
This is what we call the beginning of a beautiful Colorado sunset.
Then the damn Chiefs came back and tied it. Below was also the attendance at todays game.
The Broncos had a late rally in the 4th quarter.
Broncos score, win the game, and fans get some sweet justice from the last time we played the Chiefs.They previoiusly put a whoopin on us at Arrowhead Stadium.
The only Bronco game we’re able to see this season and we beat the Chiefs in a great game. Glad we were lucky enough to be there live. Check out my video of us leaving the game. It was insane.

Heres a clip : AFC Champ.AVI
Heres another clip..you can feel the intensity: AFC Champ 2.AV
I was offered over $800 a piece for those AFC Championship tickets and Krista wouldn’t sell. I begged her and she still wouldn’t sell.
The Broncos played like they didn’t care and they got crushed by the Steelers. Right after the game was over Krista said “You know, we should have sold those tickets”.
Next weekend we will be attending Broncos Fan Fair.Every player, coach, select Broncos Alumni and even the cheerleaders will be there. Autograph sessions, picture sessions, stuff for the kids to do. It will be our first time there and we are going both days. I’ll do an entry for each day.
Unfortunately I’ll miss Rockies autograph Sunday on the 8th..I hate that.
I’m really looking forward to this next homestand. Hopefully with the home crowd behind the Rockies it’ll spark something This last round of losses has been difficult.
