Reader: Kids with cancer are a lot tougher than the Broncos

We asked readers if they were offended or amused by a sign at a Las Vegas bar that claimed the "Broncos couldn't beat the sick kids at St. Judes," and we received dozens of responses from one end of that range to another. This post is among the most memorable.

Those sick kids are tough as nails.... The Broncos eat their own shit on national TV.... What a disgrace. Wasnt even a game. They got smoked like a blunt. I blame Joe Namath for wrecking the coin toss. That was a voodoo hex from hell!!!!!!!!!!!
