I bet you are all wondering why I am writing a blog with the header ‘Denver Broncos Colors’ since I live in New England, but let's face it - many New Englanders (AKA Patriot Fans) find it hard to believe there is life outside the Boston 495 Beltway, and especially when it comes to their beloved sports teams.
And what you probably don't know is that I lived in the Rockies for many years (albeit always a Pats/Sox/Celtics/Bruins Fan) and had to endure the bias broadcasting of local sports announcer Dave Logan (in fairness, Boston is just as bad) and his love of all things 'Blue and Orange', the Broncos team colors. SO as a peace offering to the football gods, I offer the above image captured from my latest trip west depicting what is commonly known in the Denver market as a ‘Broncos Sunset’ – the team color of their beloved ‘Broncos’. This is taken from my friends Chris and Kim's backyard looking towards Boulder with Long's Peak in the distance (14,000 feet).
And just in case you can't deal with the heavy dose of BS sport analogy above, check out the one below. It is of sunrise over the town and ski area of Breckenridge, CO. You might have heard of a pretty good song with the lyrics 'Purple Mountain Majesty' in it, I'm thinking this is what they meant.
And interesting enough, I skied at elevation over 13,000’ – I now live at an elevation of 150’ in New Hampshire! Coloradoans call us ‘flat landers’ – which is a tad bit better than what they loving refer to the Pats as (one can only imagine)!
And for the record, we live in a kinda nice place in New Hampshire too....
