Super Bowl 50 – DENVER BRONCOS WIN!
It’s Monday afternoon, the day after. Did you go to work today?
I have a massive headache.
I guess it’s a good headache. I celebrated the Broncos winning Super Bowl 50!
(Read the previous Blog for the “set-up” on the Denver Broncos and Super Bowl 50)
I predicted the Broncos would win 27-17, the final score was 24-10.
And there was much rejoicing! The Denver Orange Rush – Orange Crush 2.0 DOMINATED! Fans celebrated into the night and early morning, both in Denver and around the world. Peyton Manning got another ring, drank a lot of Budweiser and went to Disneyland today!
We had a party and watched the game.
On the Menu: Baked Buffalo wings, crudité plate with ranch dressing, garlic hummus & fresh made guacamole with tortilla chips, pistachio nuts, Doritos cool ranch chips, lightly salted peanuts, mini twist pretzels, pepperoncini kettle chips and MEGA peanut M&Ms. NOTE: It was a non-alcohol day, so orange/pineapple/cran-raspberry juice, iced espresso and coke were the beverages of the day. And of course there were Oranges!
ORANGE! GO BRONCOS!
Halftime Show (for better or worse)
Coldplay just sucks. Pop music that doesn’t matter. Someone asked when they saw the rainbow motif, “Are they gay?” Other really snarky comments were tweeted. Then Bruno Mars got uptown funky, and was the highlight of the Halftime show, you can’t not like him. And then we were treated to Beyonce’s crotch! I think I like her old stuff better. Nothing wrong with a little “booty-shaking” at the Super Bowl though! It was better than “Up With People” or the New Kids On The Block. I was entertained (for better or worse).

BRONCOS FOR THE WIN!
Big Congratulations to everyone involved! I thanked them in the previous Blog, and I’ll thank them all again! This win was sweeeeeeet!
“Now I’ve won the Super Bowl…”
And then Peyton thanked Budweiser, G-d and Papa John…
Here’s the real CHAMPION of Super Bowl 50:

The Denver Defense won the game! They dominated all season long. The “Orange Rush” was the deciding factor in every game they won, and the secondary was exceptional. the Orange Crush 2.0 excelled at pressuring the QB, executing pass coverage and making big plays when needed. And all three were key factors in the Broncos victory.
MVP Von Miller
Von Miller earned the Super Bowl MVP with 2.5 sacks and two forced fumbles on Carolina Panther’s quarterback Cam Newton.

Now I’m going to talk about Aqib Talib and his OUT OF CONTROL BEHAVIOR. He should have been ejected (or benched by Denver) in the first quarter! He should have been traded after the eye poke against the Colts in November! He cost the Broncos 35 yards in penalty yards in the first quarter of Super Bowl 50 with two personal fouls, including an INTENTIONAL FACEMASK!
WTF? Personal Foul 15 yards, Automatic First Down!
Late in the fourth quarter the Indianapolis Colts had pivotal third down, but Talib was hit with an unnecessary roughness penalty for INTENTIONALLY POKING Allen in the eye. He cost the Broncos the game against the Colts and was suspended without pay for the next game against the Kansas City Chiefs for his eye-poke of Colts tight end Dwayne Allen. After the game, Talib didn’t even remember poking Allen. “I don’t even remember, man,” he told USA TODAY “Just mad. I can’t even remember, man. I don’t know.”
This was an INTENTIONAL FACEMASK! Personal Foul 15 yards, Automatic First Down!
Here are Aqib Talib’s 2015-2016 Stats:
What the F*ck? Is Aqib Talib’s play so valuable that he should be allowed to cost the team a win and give the Broncos a black eye along with the other team’s player? Do we need a player who commits intentional penalties and deliberately injures other players? If the Broncos had lost, there would have been a lot of questions about his first quarter play!
And what about Cam Newton? What a LOSER! He got beat. He got punished. He was sacked six times and he fumbled in the fourth quarter with four minutes left when Von Miller threw him to the ground. Not only did Newton not go for the loose football, he jumped back after the Broncos’ defenders dove for it.
After his behavior this year and all his trademark celebrations: his dabbing and dancing, his fake jump shots after touchdowns, he completed 18 of 41 passes for 265 yards and ended the game with one interception and two fumbles. He was throwing a tantrum on the sideline and in the end zone during the fourth quarter, showed little respect to the winning opposing team and then acted badly after the game.
Cam Newton’s New Dab! What a Baby!
Cam Newton only spent five minutes an the post game press conference before bolting. “They just played better than us. I don’t know what you want me to say. I’m sorry. They made more plays than us, and that’s what it came down to. We had opportunities. It wasn’t nothing special that they did. We dropped balls. We turned the ball over. We gave up sacks, threw errant passes. That’s it. They scored more points than us.” After the constant beating from the Broncos Defense, poor sportsmanship, bad behavior and a bruised ego was all he had left after the game.
BRONCOS WIN! FIRE PHIL SIMMS!
