For True Broncomaniacs Only

Yesterday I received my official Broncos merchandise catalog in the mail, and along with the usual jerseys, caps and replica helmets there were some … odd items, such as the pictured football car air freshener. Now, your car can stew in the redolent reek of a locker room! Actually, it’s vanilla-scented, but I had to visit the website to figure that out. Other bizarre items included this pink bottle jersey suit, two different styles of Broncos thong underwear and the unfortunately named “Run Defense” boxers. Um, don’t all underwear offer a certain level of run defense? Well, except for the aforementioned thongs anyway… -- Cory Casciato
