I’ve never been a Tom Brady fan, per se. But his athleticism and skill won me over years ago. Even I, a lifelong Broncos fan, have to admit he’s the GOAT. He’s simply got too many rings on too many fingers to argue otherwise. So, when my dad proposed a bet on this year’s Super … Continue reading Twenty Bucks-are-near
A lot of you were interested to learn more about the cast iron pizza. I have to admit I was skeptical myself the first time Tara said she was going to make one, but they're surprisingly easy and very good. We use this pizza dough recipe from Sally's Baking Addiction. I have no idea who … Continue reading On Dasher, On Dancer, On Peyton & Elway
Monday, we were instructed to wear ugly holiday sweaters to work for a company Christmas card photo. I didn't even own one, but a quick trip to Kohl's over the weekend solved that dilemma. I picked out the most garish sweater I could find. I mean, that's the point, right? Go ugly or go home. … Continue reading Go Ugly or Go Home
I find the cult of sports fandom fascinating. All day long, I had coworkers coming up to me and offering their congratulations after the Denver Broncos beat Carolina to win Super Bowl 50. I received heaps of praise and so many fist bumps, high fives, and pats on the back, you'd think I played a crucial role … Continue reading United in Orange
We were watching TV one day last week and a commercial came on. I can't remember the product, but the pitchman was a dead ringer for Joe Isuzu. "That guy's a dead ringer for Joe Isuzu, huh?" I asked Tara. She turned to me with a blank look on her face, and I cringed when … Continue reading Joe Isuz-who?
I found out recently that people in Africa are walking around wearing shirts emblazoned with Denver Broncos Super Bowl XLVIII Champions on 'em. Which I thought was a bit odd, seeing how the Broncos got their asses kicked by the Seahawks in this year's Super Bowl. Sniff. (It's okay. I can admit it: losing 43-8 is pretty bad. … Continue reading Maybe Dewey DID Defeat Truman
So, my beloved Broncos apparently forgot there was a football game to be played yesterday. Losing sucks, but it's part of being a diehard fan. You have to take the lows with the highs. It hurts that I waited 15 years to see my team make it back to the Big Show, only to be … Continue reading Put a Lid On Your Trash Talkin’
Today bites. But that's always the case after a long weekend. Especially one so chock full of good times and amazing memories. Our adventure began Friday afternoon. After a morning that dragged so s l o w l y it felt like the minute hand on the clock was moving backwards, my dad showed up … Continue reading Moscow Mules, Molly’s House, & More Mile High Memories
As you probably know, I'm a big Denver Broncos fan. Have been all my life. Or at least, all of the part of my life that matters (14 and up). We moved to Rapid City, South Dakota in 1983, just before my freshman year in high school. Rapid (as the locals call it) is sort … Continue reading Peyton, Here We Come!
It's been an amazing couple of weeks if you're an NFL fan. Especially if you're a Denver Broncos fan. And this is only the offseason. First came Manningwatch 2012. I haven't seen the media this obsessed with somebody's every move since a certain white Ford Bronco sped down a certain Los Angeles freeway lo these many years … Continue reading Peaches for Tebow. Let’s Get This Done.
