With Tebow in the Can…Chauncey’s the Man

CLIPPERS VS NUGGETS

 Two Nuggets games in three days. This game I was helping (he did all the work), my buddy “B” set up the equipment for the Stats Team.

I usually do this a couple of times a season because it’s fun and I get crazy cool pictures.We show up a couple of hours before the game starts, roll out all of the computer equipment onto the floor and set up.

Once that’s good to go we eat dinner with the media folk then I wander the Pepsi Center doing what I do.

Here are a few pre-game pictures I took when I was on the floor.

Rocky doing his thing.

Start of the game.

 Chauncey Billups was back home in Denver this evening. Chauncey received a standing ovation from the fans when the Clippers were introduced.

Then Chauncey proceeded to personally kick the Nuggets collective ass.

I still think the Nuggets played well against the Clippers. Chauncey was on a mission to end the Clippers 4 game losing streak on the road, and he had family at the Pepsi Center so he was putt’n on a show for them.

A 32 point show.

Quote from Chauncey: “It’s just always good to play in front of your family and it’s always good to compete against friends.”

Nene had 18 points and 9 rebounds.

Here’s Chris Paul and Andre Miller after they bumped heads.

Both were fine. Despite the collision Miller had 16 points and 10 rebounds.

Guess who was here tonight attending his first Nuggets game?

That’s right, Tim signed a football and Rocky the Nuggets mascot ran around with it eventually kicking it to a lucky fan in the crowd.

Before the end of the half I was hanging around by the tunnel that the Nuggets use to enter onto the floor. I looked over to my left and who was standing there? Tim Tebow and a couple of other people. I immediately think about getting his autograph then I realize I have no pen and nothing for Tim to sign. So I positioned myself by a corner, took a few pictures and waited for Tim to walk by.

As they started to head my way Tim looked right at me and initiated a handshake. I shook his hand then mentioned that I was a first year Broncos season ticket holder and I thanked him for a great season. He thanked me and they continued on.

I can tell you I didn’t see that coming when I woke up this morning. I normally don’t get starstruck but I was.

He’s a cool dude.

 

Griffin is a monster. He had 17 points and 13 rebounds.

With seconds left Chauncey crowded Nene’ and drew a bogus offensive foul. That gave Chris Paul two foul shots and he nailed them both putting the Clippers up by 4 solidifying this Nuggets loss.

Final Score:  Clippers 109   Nuggets 105

Here’s 7ft Kosta Koufos signing a ticket I picked up in Club Level.

I then found myself standing next to Nene’.  He then turned and looked at me, smiled, shook my hand and then autographed my Media pass.

Nene’ is always great about meeting fans backstage and signing for them.

Best dressed of the game.

I’m “D” The Ranter and there was no way I was missing my opportunity to “D”-Bow.

Thanks “B”

Orton Hears A Boo…Or Two

CHARGERS VS BRONCOS

The end of baseball season for me means Nuggets basketball (although this season is a bust), and Broncos Football. If you follow this blog you know it’s not limited to baseball. I’m a Colorado Blogger and with that said I need to be flexible, so I blog about all kinds of events from Judas Priest concerts to my little town of Nederland’s famous “Frozen Dead Guy Days”.

 After almost ten years on the Broncos season ticket waiting list our number finally came up and Krista and I were offered the opportunity to purchase season tickets a few months ago. My wife is probably a bit more of a football fan than me(and a lot less of a baseball fan), but I’ve been a solid Broncos fan since 1989.

She supports me hanging out with the Rantics at Coors Field so I didn’t hesitate to get her the Broncos season tickets.

Happy Wife = Happy Life

 The plus side is I get to go too :) Hunter and Mylee both were able to attend the two home pre-season games and they had a great time.

Our seats are on the fifth level and only thing in front of us is a railing. Cool thing, not too far from our seats  is the Broncos fan mascot known as the Broncnater.

Here’s the Broncnator in full effect on the Big Screen.

Here he is in person.

Gotta respect a guy who puts his trademark name on his Jersey :)

This particular game was my third Broncos game of the season and although it was the Broncos forth loss I felt this game was blog worthy. The game kicked off the with the announcement that the skydivers were jumping out of the plane.  Everyone stands there and looks up and waits for the skydivers to enter the stadium.

If you’ve never seen live before this it can get a bit tense at times as these dudes swoop over extremely close to the crowd. Once these guys manuver themselves inside the stadium they are haul’n a-ss.

Nobody took a boot to the head so I’d call this one a perfect landing.

Then there was the flyover…That never gets old…Jets will always be cool.

 Ok, I was not on the Tebow bandwagon at the beginning of this game. I like Tebow but I figured he needed more time to learn the Broncos system and mature. But I’m not seeing anything I like from Mr. Orton thus far into the season. 

Not long into the game the boo’s started because of Orton’s performance and not long after the Tebow chants started to echo the stadium.

 I felt bad for Orton but not only did he put on a lackluster performance he just looked like he wasn’t into it. Body language says a lot. Kyle’s body language said..”Bench Me”

Coach Fox succumbed to the crowd pressure, pulled Orton, put in Tebow and the Broncos were back in the game. Something about Tebow, when he is on the field it feels electric. It’s like the Mile High Magic is back.

Say what you want, I was there and I felt it.

Here are some random game pictures.  

This dude is gonna be great.

Gets the two point conversion.

 

Decker Flying

This catch was one Coach Fox reviewed. He clearly had possession.

Upon further review it was a reception.

 Champ Baily doing his thing.

Sends Mathews airborne.

Mathews lands and loses possession of the ball. 

Broncos ball.

 Rivers attempts a throw to Jackson.

 Jackson thinks he has it.

I think at this point Jackson knows he’s lost it.

The Broncos had a chance to win the game with one second left close to the goal but it wasn’t to be.

Broncos lose to the Chargers. The final score was 29-24. I’ve never exited Mile High with a loss and seen the crowd still buzzing with excitement. Is Orton done and the Tebow era begun?

By the way..Have you heard of Tebowing? You’ll love this :)

I’m the Ranter…I’m on the Tebow wagon, I like a quarterback with heart.
