So they are calling it a rematch.
Remember the last Super Bowl? It was not pretty. Broncos’ fans all over the nation have simply been trying to forget it and move on to this new season.
Ah, but the NFL gods and all those pesky Seahawk fans will not stop talking about that bloody massacre. It was one of the Broncos’ darkest days.
So shut the fuck up, already, and let’s play some football!
No more talking about a rematch. Today’s game is not a rematch. Players have been traded and the teams are not last year’s teams, for crying out loud. Some of those reporters sitting up in that observation booth, wherever it is, take every opportunity to dish doubt and ugliness about my precious Broncos. I think they hide their location to keep rabid Broncos’ fans from going all The Walking Dead on their asses.
Ah, if only I had a cross bow and their GPS. Just sayin..
Anyhow, I’m over it.
It’s less than an hour before the game. I just need to don my Broncos jersey, orange comfy socks, dangly earrings, and hat. Then I need to hang my Broncos flag and dust off my John Elway bobble-head doll and rub his tummy for luck.
For luck, I swear! Minds out of the gutter please. I’m not that kind of kinky.
After morphing my home into a Broncos’ shrine, I will order up some food. Not cooking today. It could be a real screamer of a game, and I need to preserve my energy. I’m thinking Sweet and Sour Chicken, some fried rice and egg roll. Okay, it may not be your normal football cuisine, but I haven’t been normal for decades, so deal with it. A true fan understands these things.
However. I feel like I am forgetting something.
Oh wait, the cheerleaders! We cannot forget the Broncos’ Cheerleaders! Here’s a photo, lest you’ve forgotten about how vital they are to the whole Broncos’ experience.
Three thoughts to leave you with:
- The Broncos will show up. Unlike last year’s Super Bowl.
- The Broncos will not be intimidated by the noise of thousands of Seattle Seahawks screaming, “Go Hawks!” Real original, Seattle. How much are you paying your marketing team to come up with that one?
- The Broncos will win or lose. I will have a more definitive answer after the game. And if I happen to doze off during the game and miss the final score, I am quite sure my dear friend and Hawks fan, Tracy, will be more than happy to enlighten me.
Okay three more things:
In the words of the lovely April, a new Broncos’ fan, “Let’s do the damn thang!”
My cute little sister would say, “Let’s get ‘er done!”
My partner would probably say, as she awakens from her nap during the first quarter of the game, “Is it over yet? Can we rent a movie now?”
I concur on all of the above. I might add, “I only got 2.5 glasses of wine from that bottle? WTF?”
Okay enough of this silliness. Peyton Manning, would just hunker down and shout, “Omaha!”
