Having lived in Boise, mid-60s to mid-70s, during BSC's change to BSU, I somehow find myself emotionally drawn to the Broncos. It was an easy draw as I have been a Denver Bronco fan since '61. Its made my life simple for years. When people ask my favorite football team, the answer for years has been simple, "Broncos." Funny how that works...this funny Bronco fan...both teams born in the Rockies, as I was. Its been fun following both Broncos over the years, two great teams with great fans. Two great teams with great fans and the support behind the players to keep them great...thus keep us fans happy, and then some.
I love this SB Nation format, what a fun way to keep in touch with fans that love similar teams.
I better get to my thoughts before its tomorrow and the comparison no longer works. Both my teams are looking at very important games: Denver playing New England, a team Denver needs to, 'take-out,' not just to gain respect (in fact that's not important) 'take-out' for the player's sake...to know they can march forward thinking Super Bowl.
You Broncos in Boise need to 'take-out' Tulsa and the results if you don't are so much worse. I hope like heck this Boise State team doesn't underestimate Tulsa...this is one good team. Denver could rebound from a loss and still go Super Bowl. Boise loses to Tulsa and BCS is out.
Here's the funny feeling:
I've been a Denver Bronco fan since 1961 and a Boise Bronco fan since 1967. For the first time I see a strange chance. For the first time, in almost fifty years, the two football teams that I somehow became emotionally attached to have a chance to do something special....something I never thought possible. If Denver loses to New England tomorrow we still have a chance. If Boise loses to Tulsa you don't.
Keep winning you guys.
Imagine the press: Bronco's Champions Again...first Boise now Denver !
just imagine...Broncos total rule
