I have five cute kids. And I have some rockin short green racing shorts- I wear them mainly because it embarrasses my wife so much. I like ultimate frisbee, trail running, reading, and cheering for the Denver Broncos!   And I have the absolute best wife in the world.  And I used to run for the now-disbanded national Team Pearl Izumi- Ultra!

AM- 10 miles. Between the local marathon/half happening last weekend, and a very hard, cold rain this morning, I didn't see anyone running outside. But there were only a few people on the TM, too. I enjoyed getting caught up on the NFL weekend, and was pleasantly surprised about the Broncos win. Sorry, Paul.

Wait, why isn't Paul a Broncos fan?

That game was a nice surprise wasn't it? If they keep the running game going like it was last night and as Peyton gets more comfortable with the new offense (which he will), I think this could be the year.

Still early, but clearly Elway knows what he's doing.

Paul is a GB fan. He's from up in that neck of the woods. I don't think moving to Denver has changed anything.

I didn't watch the game but looked at the score a few times. When it was 17-10, I was a bit nervous. That defense is good, to hold Rodgers to that few of yards.

Denver may be the best sports town in America. Super loyal fans win or lose. It would be hard to live there and not get caught up in it.

From Jon on Tue, Nov 03, 2015 at 18:09:33 from

It is a pretty good sports town. Far enough away that there's not in-town rivals, loyal fans, etc. I was glad to grow up there sports-wise. Plus, I was there during the Broncos' Super Bowl wins and the Avs' Stanley Cups.
