Ravens vs Broncos
First Game of the 2013 Regular Football Season.
I never really cared one way or the other about the Baltimore Ravens until last year. Losing to the Ravens in the Playoffs created an instant distaste for those dirty birds.
A dude named Jacoby Jones ripped my heart out last season and I’ve never fully recovered…
Until now that is 🙂
I’m not here to give you the stats of this game, there are folks who get paid to do that shit. I’m here to describe the feeling. As confident as Bronco fans wanted you to think we were going into this game, I believe each of us had just an inkling of doubt slingshoting around inside our heads. That little BB of doubt made me nervous because this was the first game of the NFL season and it was televised nationally with the entire country wondering/watching what the Broncos would do to try to even the score.
I like Joe Flacco about as much as I like gum stuck to my shoe.

Von Miller making an entrance.
Why do people dislike this guy so?
I didn’t know much about Tim Tebow before he became a Bronco but this guy is winning me over. I’m not blind, I realize Tim is seriously rough around the edges but what he lacks in experience he makes up for in heart and balls.
Bronco fans have waited a long time for the right quarterback. I have thoroughly enjoyed every home game I’ve attended this season where Tebow was the starter. He brings a much-needed “vibe” back to a stadium that has been lacking a beat.
My last picture of Kyle Orton. Seems he was picked up by the Chiefs. I hope he’s the starter when the Broncos host the Chiefs on New Years day. I’m sure there won’t be an empty seat in the house. Notice I didn’t say it was the last game of the season.
All I know at this point is with Tebow, you never know?
My prediction…Orton puts on a ho-hum lackluster performance and Broncos get the win.
First play of the game, Tebow pass to Thomas…In-Com-Plete
Look at the size of the arms of #93. Tebow is a big guy, but this dudes arms are the size of Tebow’s legs.
Nice to have Eddie Royal back.

I didn’t see this guy hop over the wall, I caught up with him as he was getting tackled.
Tim Tebow touchdown series.
Broncos take this one with another 4th quarter come from behind win at the hands of Tim Tebow. Final Score 17-13.
Haters keep on hating and telling Tebow he can’t do it.
Broncos fans know what happens when you tell Tim he can’t do something.
I’m “D” the Ranter. Long time Broncos fan and first year Broncos season ticket holder who’s luv’n it…”D”
CHARGERS VS BRONCOS
The end of baseball season for me means Nuggets basketball (although this season is a bust), and Broncos Football. If you follow this blog you know it’s not limited to baseball. I’m a Colorado Blogger and with that said I need to be flexible, so I blog about all kinds of events from Judas Priest concerts to my little town of Nederland’s famous “Frozen Dead Guy Days”.
After almost ten years on the Broncos season ticket waiting list our number finally came up and Krista and I were offered the opportunity to purchase season tickets a few months ago. My wife is probably a bit more of a football fan than me(and a lot less of a baseball fan), but I’ve been a solid Broncos fan since 1989.
She supports me hanging out with the Rantics at Coors Field so I didn’t hesitate to get her the Broncos season tickets.
Happy Wife = Happy Life
The plus side is I get to go too 🙂 Hunter and Mylee both were able to attend the two home pre-season games and they had a great time.
Our seats are on the fifth level and only thing in front of us is a railing. Cool thing, not too far from our seats is the Broncos fan mascot known as the Broncnater.
Here’s the Broncnator in full effect on the Big Screen.
Gotta respect a guy who puts his trademark name on his Jersey 🙂
This particular game was my third Broncos game of the season and although it was the Broncos forth loss I felt this game was blog worthy. The game kicked off the with the announcement that the skydivers were jumping out of the plane. Everyone stands there and looks up and waits for the skydivers to enter the stadium.
If you’ve never seen live before this it can get a bit tense at times as these dudes swoop over extremely close to the crowd. Once these guys manuver themselves inside the stadium they are haul’n a-ss.
Nobody took a boot to the head so I’d call this one a perfect landing.
Then there was the flyover…That never gets old…Jets will always be cool.
Ok, I was not on the Tebow bandwagon at the beginning of this game. I like Tebow but I figured he needed more time to learn the Broncos system and mature. But I’m not seeing anything I like from Mr. Orton thus far into the season.
Not long into the game the boo’s started because of Orton’s performance and not long after the Tebow chants started to echo the stadium.
I felt bad for Orton but not only did he put on a lackluster performance he just looked like he wasn’t into it. Body language says a lot. Kyle’s body language said..”Bench Me”
Coach Fox succumbed to the crowd pressure, pulled Orton, put in Tebow and the Broncos were back in the game. Something about Tebow, when he is on the field it feels electric. It’s like the Mile High Magic is back.
Say what you want, I was there and I felt it.
Here are some random game pictures.
This dude is gonna be great.
Gets the two point conversion.
This catch was one Coach Fox reviewed. He clearly had possession.
Champ Baily doing his thing.
Sends Mathews airborne.
Mathews lands and loses possession of the ball.
Rivers attempts a throw to Jackson.
Jackson thinks he has it.
I think at this point Jackson knows he’s lost it.
The Broncos had a chance to win the game with one second left close to the goal but it wasn’t to be.
Broncos lose to the Chargers. The final score was 29-24. I’ve never exited Mile High with a loss and seen the crowd still buzzing with excitement. Is Orton done and the Tebow era begun?
By the way..Have you heard of Tebowing? You’ll love this 🙂
