United in Orange

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

No Bright Colors in the Zombie Apocalypse

I was watching The Walking Dead last night and made an interesting observation. Not sure if I ever noticed it before, but for some reason there are no bright colors in the zombie apocalypse. Everybody is cloaked in gray. This lends an eerie ambiance to the show, but a one-dimensional wardrobe is not very realistic. I … Continue reading No Bright Colors in the Zombie Apocalypse

Put a Lid On Your Trash Talkin’

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’

Searchin’ For My Lost Shaker of Salt

I have a feeling I might take things too literally sometimes. Yesterday, I was heating up a cup of soup for lunch. Reading the directions on the label, I saw this: So what did I do? I reached over and shook the microwave before opening the door. Knowing full well that Campbell's wanted me to shake the … Continue reading Searchin’ For My Lost Shaker of Salt

Moscow Mules, Molly’s House, & More Mile High Memories

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

Peyton, Here We Come!

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!

Oh, What a Tangled Web…

After pulling into the parking lot at work today, on the way to the front door I inadvertently walked through a spider web that was hanging between a bush and the front door. This led to a completely natural and understandable response. Full-on panic. I started waving my arms around in the air, nearly spilling … Continue reading Oh, What a Tangled Web…

Peaches for Tebow. Let’s Get This Done.

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.
