They're even better in person

In the spirit of my last post, at the last minute I decided to go see the Broncos play in Jacksonville yesterday. As you can see from the picture, we didn't have the greatest seats, and it did rain off and on, but even so a great time was had by all. Oh, and the Broncos won 20-7, much to the chagrin of a few obnoxious (though not as bad as some others we've been around) Jaguar fans. After the game we found ourselves right in the middle of a huge crowd of Bronco fans who had gathered outside the buses that were taking the Bronco players to the airport. Sadly we couldn't stay and wait for them to show, as we had to get back to begin our bus ride from hell. However on the way home, the Bronco buses and a police escort passed us on the road. To think.....I was that close to Mike Shanahan, Jake Plummer, Champ Bailey, and the rest of the gang. It got me thinking about what I'd say to Mike Shanahan if I ever met him. There's a million things I should want to ask him, but the only thing I keep coming up with is this: how in the world can John Elway be a Republican? Breaks my heart every single time I think of it....but then again, nobody's perfect.

Look at all the empty seats in the stadium. What a sad state for Jacksonville. Nice picture though.

They actually announced the game as a sellout - which in addition to the empty seats seems silly when you notice those huge tarps covering all those seats in the top corners of the stadium. Several people in the stands could be heard bitching about how the team has asked the fans to show up, and when they do the team plays like crap. No mention of how the Broncos defense might have had something to do with that....
