The parade and rally was amazing. Went to the previous two as a kid and thought I knew what cramped situations were like, felt like there were more people at this one than the first two combined. People crawling over the statues in the park, climbing light posts, traffic lights trees and the sides of building trying to get a better look at the festivities, and hours after it everybody was still there, a sea of orange chanting 'let's go broncos', 'defense' and 'miller time' and it felt like everyone was a long time friend that you had been through thick and thin with. I even had a cordial conversation with a chiefs and raiders fan without the desire to beat them to death ever creeping into my mind. Was one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen. The broncos supplanted my daughters, at least for the day, as my third most beloved thing in this world.
Oh fuck, it's starting to set in that the season is actually over, now we're left with six months of nothing, or worse, baseball.
