This coming Sunday, my pathetic Denver Broncos are traveling just south of Mount Lombardi to play the Super Bowl Champion Green Bay Packers on their hallowed frozen tundra. On paper it appears that it will not be pretty. The Packers have already been installed as a 13 to 14.5 point favorite and even that spread might be light. Of course the last time the Packers were favored to beat the Broncos by that much, John Elway did a helicopter spin and the Broncos walked away with a Super Bowl title.

Now if you follow CRZ on VYOU (http://vyou.com/ CRZ) - and you should be if you aren't - you will know that in a lack of clarity moment, caused by my doctor's insistence that I cut my coffee intake to 1 cup a day, I asked CRZ -

"how are you going to feel next Sunday when my BRONCOS beat your packers at Lambeau Field ?"

Somehow, CRZ twisted that innocent question into how confident are you and what shall we wager. He even called me a chicken. Tough talk coming from a 14.5 point favorite. Well what CRZ doesn't know is I have a long history of making, winning & losing dumb sports bets. I never bet money, I only bet pride because pride is cheap and I have plenty of it. I have broken eggs over someone's head in a packed college dining hall. I have had eggs broken over my head too. I have been hit in the face with chocolate & banana creme pies (in downtown SF and online) as well as having had the pleasure of returning the flavor. I have also had to sing in front of a room full of Chicago Bulls fans but that was just dumb. How could I ever have bet on Patrick Ewing & John Starks ?

Which brings me to my idea to make this game a little more interesting CRZ. I know you love your Karaoke but not all of us have had the pleasure of hearing you sing. I propose that the loser will have to sing the winning team's fight song and then post in online. (I did a quick search on youtube and couldn't find a Denver Broncos Fight Song so you can sing Rocky Mountain High by John Denver instead)

I am not asking for the points. I am standing by my team that if it weren't for Peyton Manning's neck would be a lock for the next great Stanford QB. I am willing to humiliate myself (again) for the honor of the Orange Crush. So what do you think ? Are you willing to take the chance that the Packers don't look past the Broncos ? I look forward to your response.

(now take back that chicken comment)

The "chicken" comment was an afterthought and said in haste, but you know how I hate doing more than one take of my VYou answers.

Absolutely accepted. I cannot accept the terms of this wager quickly enough.

(I've been waiting all day to see what you'd come up with - I'm glad you decided against some combination of eggs and webcams!)

I had a feeling that you would jump at this one. I would have posted it earlier but work got in the way.

Let the trash talking amongst the denizens of The W begin....

Forget "Go! You Packers! Go!", I want you singing "Green and Yellow".

This could be epic. Are you giving him the 14 points or is it just a straight up be?

There's no costuming/need to wear the winner's team's colors associated with this? :(

That inspired me to look up Orton's career stats against the Packers. Four games started, an average of 112 yards per game, a completion percentage of sub-50%, and a QB rating of 58.3. The rat bastard went 3-1. Sometimes football can be a real asshole.

BILLS BILLS BILLS BILLS BILLS

Sorry, still euphoric.


Dunk, if this is a straight up bet I give you props, because 14.5 spread is impressive.

Welcome home, men of the 2nd Bn, 127th Infantry, 32d "Red Arrow" Brigade, WI Army National Guard! Job well done in Iraq!

Took me some searchin', but I found the Broncos' instrumental fight song. (Wasn't searching for the cheerleaders, honest.)

Several other sites confirm that these are the only lyrics:

Hail mighty Broncos. . .
pride of the West,
Like the mountains towering high. . .
over all the rest.


I also look forward to dunkndollaz singing the only NFL fight song with the word "bacon" in it. (Seriously! Side note...why are the Packers the only NFC North team that DOESN'T play their old fight song on a regular basis? We only hear it at Lambeau when they break out the 1929 "Powerball" jerseys. C'mon, Ted!)

Anyhoo, I'll be on the sidelines/Broncos locker room shooting for KMGH-TV. Watch for this hat:

If you lose the bet, please, PLEASE do not do that incredibly annoying "Go Pack Go" chant that I hear when the PA plays that goofy bass riff. That makes me weep for humanity.

On the plus side, this is the first reason I've had to cheer for the Broncos since Elway retired.

TEBOW,TEBOW,TEBOW, PUT HIM IN AS THE STARTING QB, TEBOW, TEBOW,TEBOW!!!!!

.....

There, now it's an official Broncos post.

Seriously, I can see Orton having a good day but Fox falling to peer pressure and using Tebow. I mean I think Tebow will be a good player given time to develop, but isn't it overkill at this point for the lynch mob mentality against Orton?

You don't say...



(DISCLAIMER: At least one of my high school music teachers is playing on the version that actually plays at Lambeau.)

http://rivals.yahoo.com/ncaa/football/news?slug=cr-uncagents092910 OK it was bad before, but this is well beyond that now. USC got nailed because a coach knew what was going on but wasn't involved. UNC had a coach on the take for years.
