Not caught up in the hoopla over the Denver Broncos' upcoming appearance in Super Bowl 50?

Then you'll identify with this reader.

In response to our post about the top ten celebrity Broncos fans, he expressed complete antipathy for the game and disbelief that so many folks locally give a damn about it.

Imagine what would happen if we all came together over something that actually mattered.

Who cares that a football team is playing another football team? Is that football team you?? Are YOU playing the Super Bowl? Go live your life. Don't waste it watching other people live theirs.
