Best Sports Team — Professional - 2013
Oh, what a sweet feeling it is to look forward to a Broncos season. It hasn't been that way for a while, either because of overt mediocrity or cosmic flukery of the Tim Tebow variety. Peyton Manning has changed all with his work ethic and his incredible skill set, not to mention durability (so far) that's surprised even some of those who were confident his neck wouldn't shatter after that first sack. And while the off-season has had its ups (acquiring Wes Welker) and downs (the Elvis Dumervil fax-gate debacle), the signs as a whole are more than positive. To put it another way, fans won't have to be wildly drunk to believe a long-delayed return to the Super Bowl is possible.
