Chiefs vs Broncos…Game 16
The last regular season game of the year. There were only two things Krista and I wanted to see happen today. A Broncos win, and news of the #1 seed in the AFC.
I love this feeling. Being a hardcore Rockies fan winning is a strange concept to me. Winning 11 in a row is way more than anyone anticipated at the beginning of this season.
After almost 15 years of the Broncos owning a lollipop factory, finally they don’t suck anymore.
Folks..Hold your head high…Being a Broncos fan carries some weight again. Even the Rockies Rally Squirrel jumped ship and now lives near Sports Authority Field.
I figure since Rockies fans don’t tail-gate the scraps here must be plentiful. Krista and I did a little Hill-Gating with Mike the Rox Addict before the game. We shared a few of Colorado’s finest and started making plans for our Spring Training trip in 2 months 🙂
Hill-Gating is partying on a hill next to where other folks are Tail-Gating. Admittedly not a great word but it’s my word. How many words do you have?

This Superbowl run is for you Champ.
Love the broncos Toque that Champ is wearing.
Don’t know what a toque is? Let me help you.
In Canada, toque, or tuque (pron.: /’tu:k/), is the common name for a knitted winter hat, or beanie. The Canadian English term was assimilated from Canadian French tuque. Toque first appeared in writing around 1870.
The fashion is said to have originated with the coureurs de bois, French and Métis fur traders, who kept their woollen nightcaps on for warmth during cold winter days. Such hats are known in other English-speaking countries by a variety of names, including beanie (American), watch cap or stocking cap; the terms tuque and toque are unique to Canada and northern areas of the United States, close to the Canadian border.
Now you know.
First play Quinn hands off to Charles.
Quinn gets a taste of some Mile High grass 🙂
With Manning at the Helm…
Broncos straight up kick the Chiefs ass 38-3..Total Domination!
On a final Broncos note..Six years ago on Jan 1 2007 cornerback Darrent Williams was shot and killed on New Years Day, at 24 years of age…Sad
Here’s a video tribute to Darrent.
It’s been a year folks. Lots of ups and down in our Colorado Sports world. Blogging gained absolutely no credibility in 2012 and as such a lot of sporting events are trying to restrict what type of cameras can be brought into a Stadium or Arena. They are shying away from anything with a detachable lens.
Anyone that knows me knows I don’t sell my pictures. They are online for all to view and enjoy. There’s not a lot of people out there that do what I do quite like I do it. If you know me you know….I’m not “in it” for the money.
Shit… Being “in it” costs me money.
I rarely watch sports on TV because I love being there. That feeling of being a small part of something bigger, camera in hand waiting to catch that “perfect picture” whatever it may be that day.
Props to Coors Field and the Rockies and Sports Authority Field and the Broncos for not restricting my camera usage. I’m glad they realize I’m on their side. The Nuggets and the Pepsi Center are a different story.
Spring Training Road Trip will be early March 2013 for the Rox Addict and I.
My Spring training trip is shorter this year because we purchased a mountain ranch a month ago..
You’d think the perfect name for the ranch would be the Rockpile Ranch right? For some reason my wife doesn’t share my enthusiasm for that name. Since we’re at 9200 feet elevation the wife decided we’re gonna call it the…
“HIGH C RANCH”.
I’m “D” the Ranter.

From Krista, Hunter, Mylee , Elway, Nugget, Bronco, Karma Kitty and I…
Happy New Year and a prosperous 2013 to you…”D“
Another perfect football day in Colorado.
Yeah you wished you lived here, but stay away…Colorado’s officially full!
To be honest I’m craving my first snow game, there were none last season(stupid perfect weather). If you didn’t know Krista and I along with most of Colorado are extreme Raider haters.
(This is not Krista )
The Raiders have chumped us way too many times of late and Raiders fans in Colorado have grown increasingly bold because of it.. Manning’s our ace in the hole and today’s mission was to reverse the four-year Raider domination in Colorado.
A couple of WTF’s? These two dudes were castaway from the Blue Man Group for being color blind.
Broncos have a new line of handbags for men called the Pansy Purse…Think I’ll stick to my backpack.
Folks, this is how you tailgate… You buy a used senior citizen shuttle bus and convert it Broncos style.
Boo, only thing missing in this gang is chains.
Manning’s first pass,…incomplete.
First drive touchdown, Manning to Dreesen. In your face Raiders 🙂
Extra point is good… 7-0 Broncos.
Manning flashing the Ranter sign 🙂
One thing I noticed was the total lack of Raiders fans. Normally Mile High is crawling with the black and silver. I don’t think I noticed 100 Raiders fans in the entire place…That’s the way is should be.
Final Score of this long overdue blowout…
Thank you Broncos…I needed this win.
I’m “D” the Ranter…Mondays are much more tolerable when the Raiders fans are speechless.
Manning’s biological clock is ticking faster than a baseball card clipped to a bike tire that’s rolling downhill. There’s no time for play’n around.
Broncos we need a win in New England next week!…”D”
Texans vs Broncos
Sports Authority Field at Mile High.
Peyton’s house was full again ‘cept for 400 or so no-shows.
Bronco fans were all eager to see what Peyton was going to look like this week. He’s new(to us) still and we have no idea what to expect from him.
Once again I managed to snag free parking but you have to be extremely careful where you park.
Parking enforcement was out in full effect making sure you follow the difficult to understand parking signs. There were no shortage of tow trucks to remove your car in case you F’ked up and read the sign wrong.
Rod Smith’s Number was being inducted into the Broncos Ring of Fame today so they Broncos were giving away Rod Smith trading cards.
Rod’s position in the Ring of Fame is next to Shannon Sharpe.
Joe Mays get’s the Mike Tyson award for ear removal when he leveled Schuab. Mays hit him so hard a piece of Schuab’s ear actually came off…That’s nasty!!
Quote from Schuab: “I felt fine. I just lost a piece of my ear, I was bleeding and my helmet came off so I had to come out for a play, but I was fine.”

Peyton fires one to Stokely.
Less than a minute left, the last throw of the game to Decker.
Who then tossed it to Bell, who tried to toss it again but for not.
I’m “D” the Ranter. It may be “Manning’s House” but Peyton needs to get his kids in line.
Raiders next week baby…”D”
Broncos vs Steelers Game 1
Ready as we’ve ever been, Krista and I showed up at 2pm to get our tailgate on.
Even showing up 4 1/2 hours before the start of the game we were still couple of hours late for the party. We played catch-up soaking in everything by just walking around enjoying the moment. The first regular season game is a HUGE deal in Denver and this is our second year as Broncos season ticket holders so we still kind of learning the ropes.
P-F-M jerseys were in full effect.
Today was Krista’s birthday. Pretty cool way to spend your birthday I’d say.
The Mile High “Crack of the Game”.
The new era of Manning.
I had nothing against Tim Tebow whatsoever… Because above all…I like winning.
Shot of the coin flip.
Orange is back and that’s a good thing!!
Almost caught two balloons thanks to a wind shift.
You’d think with balls of steel they’d drop quicker or you’d hear some sort of clanging noise?
P-F-M in “His” house.
Let’s begin the picture show.
Big Ben on his ass. The way it should be!
Two-point conversion denied
Props to Porter for being the AFC Defensive Player of the Week.
Broncos 31….Steelers 19
I”m “D” the Ranter…As I mentioned earlier, I like winn’n that’s why I’m grinn’n.
This season’s gonna be fun….”D”
