I wrote the below post just after the Broncos' loss to New England. Recently, the Denver Broncos have been front and center in the great Payton Manning Sweepstakes. Or is it the Great Payton Manning, etc. Jason Gay, writer with more talent in his shift finger than I possess everywhere else, suggests that the Broncos are being tacky. With thanks to Bob Sugar ( of Jerry Maguire fame) everyone knows its show business, not show friends. But the ungrateful crowd at Dove Valley need some lessons in grace.
A Good Old-Fashioned Ass Kicking
When someone kicks your ass, just be thankful you brought it with you. No one likes to show up unprepared.
I just wonder, as Tim Tebow meandered around the field - alone - after losing 45-10, who was going to put an arm around him and say that everyone endures days like he had. At least he didn't give up. Or, something.
Instead, he wandered around looking for someone to talk to. I wonder....
When he looks around the locker room tonight in Massachusetts, does he see friends? A band of brothers?
Or, a room full of people who were just along for the ride.
