Super Bowl Sunday is the second largest calorie-consuming holiday of the year after Thanksgiving, but while Thanksgiving is all about the turkey and mashed potatoes, Super Bowl Sunday, at least in Denver, is all about the celebration of the orange-and-blue. We've gotten a full crush of press releases trying to sell us on boring Super Bowl snacks , but we're committed to a blowout, and the photos on the following pages -- some of the most creative and crazy Denver Bronco culinary creations we could find -- are spectacular marvels of Bronco mania. From breast-baring cakes and pancakes to pizza and popcorn, these concoctions, some of which were made locally, sink Seattle's ass.
