If you've been lucky enough to score tickets for this one, remember to allow for the time change with an extra six-pack and/or thermos of hot chocolate.

"Dozens of former Denver Bronco players joined the Sisters at Exempla Saint Joseph Hospital Sunday for a tailgate party. The nuns are huge Broncos fans and host a Broncos tailgate party every year. ...
The nuns were decked out in their team regalia as they cheered on the Denver Broncos playing against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Some 40 former players planned to attend the tailgate party including Larron Jackson, Steve Sewell, Mike Harden and Mark Jackson."
Where exactly does Broncos team regalia fit into a nun's closet of habits? My only regret is that the story didn't include any photos.

From an article I just read: "Over the last two weeks, he has recorded five sacks -- a sixth was wiped out by a teammate's penalty -- and added another dynamic dimension to the Broncos' stifling defense that has held five straight opponents below double digits."

I mean, defense is kicking serious butt, but the Denver Broncos are leaving a bit to be desired on the offense side. Any chance we can get some of both, guys?

"Denver Broncos wide receiver Rod Smith became the newest mentor for Manual High School students during the Mile High United Way/Denver Broncos Hometown Huddle on Oct. 11 at Invesco Field.
Smith, who overcame poverty and adversity during his youth in Arkansas to become a leader on and off the field for the Denver Broncos, insisted that the students finish high school and believe in themselves. He also urged them to take advantage of resources in the community and listen to the mentors who have volunteered to help them."
Sure, maybe it's a publicity stunt. Personally I don't think it is. But the real question is that if it accomplishes something good, does it really matter?

"...0-for-11 over two seasons never sits easy. 'We're judged on wins and losses,' Raiders quarterback Andrew Walter said. 'There's no room for moral victories. That's all fine and dandy, but it doesn't mean anything.'"
"'It's not over,' Sapp said. 'We are just going to keep plugging away until we somehow find a way to win.'"
You know, I almost feel sorry for them.

But what's weird -- even though I never followed Louisville and didn't know much about Dumervil before this year -- is that I still find myself rooting for him. Maybe I've just seen the movie "Rudy" one too many times.

Baltimore's defense was pretty tough also, but in the end Jake Plummer and Rod Smith squeezed a TD out of them--the first one that the Ravens have allowed in the second half all year. They got some turnovers out of us, but we had 3 choice interceptions of pass attempts by Steve McNair. The coolest one came just at the end of the first half, when Champ Bailey launched himself in the air of the endzone and snagged a big one meant to go to Clarence Moore. Bailey is a champ, for sure!

Especially by way of defense! I confess I wouldn't have picked up on a stat like this, but I think it's impressive: we're the first NFL team to start a season with 11 quarters without a touchdown! Against us, that is! Loved tackle Gerald Warren's comment: "I want this defense to get in people's heads. I want them to think: 'We don't stand a chance to score against the Broncos.' "
Enjoy your R&R, Denver! Got our tickets to Invesco Field October 9th, and it's the 4 and 0 Baltimore Ravens we need you to convince that they can't score against the Broncos!

Been away for awhile, but this time of year there’s more MLB action than NFL. And one thing with baseball – sometimes your ticket buys you extra innings. The other night Colorado Rockies fans got two games’ worth of play for the price of one. Unfortunately, the final outcome was two games' worth of disappointment: Arizona Diamondbacks 2,
Rare as this is, there were, in fact, two games that went 18 innings Tuesday night/Wednesday morning. In the other one, the Chicago Cubs finally beat the Houston Astros 8-6.

So I'd rather talk about a prediction I heard for February 4th, 2007: Super Bowl XLI is supposed to be "the Battle of the Jakes." Denver's Plummer vs. Carolina's Delhomme. Sounds plausible to me--with the Broncos coming out on top!

I have been watching the NBA Playoffs for the past few weeks and I must say I have seen a lot of good basketball. I think that the Dallas Mavericks and Phoenix Suns are going to win their series against the San Antonio Spurs and Los Angeles Clippers respectively. I am not sure if the New Jersey Nets are going to advance but I would like to see

The NFL Draft is coming and we have some holes to fill. It appears that there have been prospect interviews with Jesse Mahelona, DeAngelo Williams and D. J. Shockey. I am getting so excited I am reading a lot of blogs about the draft and what the

Well March Madness is winding down and the final four have been decided. LSU, George Mason, ULA and the Florida Gators will compete for the championship. Now that all my picks are out of the contest I am going to have to chose the Florida Gators to go all the way. Who do you pick?
