On July 28, the Denver Broncos welcomed back fans to UCHealth Training Center in Dove Valley for the first of fifteen open training-camp practices
. And just the day before, AM 760, an iHeartMedia station, flipped its format to Orange & Blue Radio
, which will be "all Broncos, all the time." But some readers think that already describes the Denver media...and Denver residents in general.
Says Max: The most brain-dead conversation in Colorado is talking about the Broncos. God, I love the spring and early summer; I get to have real conversations. The sheep love being distracted by donkey talk the rest of the year. I'm a Denver native and I used to love the Broncos, but now football is too mainstream and commercialized. Everyone in Colorado is a Bronco fan; that's pathetic. Get a life...football is a distraction, nothing more.
I'm not 100 percent sure, but I heard the Broncos and NFL are also entertainment. Almost as if that's what it was meant to be.
Really, it's just a sport, and people take it as seriously as politics. I simply can't bring my brain down that far to get it. It's just a bunch of overpaid athletes throwing a ball; I doubt you people pay as much attention to things of actual importance in life.
And then there's this from Joe:
People have many different passions — Science, art, music, sports, etc....Sorry your brain can't figure that out.
