Obama versus the Denver Broncos at Invesco

Page 2 of 2

But when I closed my eyes tight and cupped my hands over my ears while I was at the game, I was able to pretend for a second that instead of hearing new Broncos P.A. announcer Alan Roach saying "In-Com-Plete!," I was actually hearing Obama saying "Change-Is-Neat!"

And frankly, after speech attendees stand for three hours in a security line and then sit through the 1,000 or so speakers who will spout hyberbole (without any respite from beer vendors) before Obama actually takes the stage, I’m guessing they will want to close their eyes and wish, for just a moment, that they were at a Bronco game instead.

Sour grapes? Never heard of them. – Jonathan Shikes
