Today has been declared “Orange Friday” by most Denver-ites. The Broncos won their big game last weekend and have another big game against the Steelers this weekend.
Now, I am not a big sports fan. So why am I even choosing to blog about it? Well, it is hard to not notice this Bronco fever today. Out of the 10 people in my department (not including my boss since he hasn’t made an appearance yet today), all but 2 of us have orange and blue on. I am part of the 2 that doesn’t have the orange and blue. Instead, I have my favorite gray wool sweater on since it is cold outside. Mind you, 9 of those 10 people in my department are women. The only guy in my department (again, not including my boss) is the other person without Bronco colors. He actually has Steeler colors on, but it wasn’t on purpose. hehe.
This Bronco mania doesn’t stop with my department. Orange Friday has been declared all over the radio and tv as well. The news anchors on Fox this morning had orange on. The radio deejays claim they are also wearing orange, but of course since we cannot see them they could be lying.
Last weekend, we had dinner at Rock Bottom Brewery with the Rempels and happened to be there during the last Bronco game. The whole place was alive with excitement about the game that was playing on tv and there was much celebration, yelling, and cheering. It was a fun atmosphere really. It almost made me think I could get into watching a football game on tv. Almost.
