Bozos of Blitz # 10
I have a lot of fun playing off of Fred and Dean, the two characters in Bozos of Blitz. They are based on a couple of friends of mine who work with me here at the News. Fred always seems to have something a little disparaging to say about the Broncos and, Dean, his counterpart, sees everything through orange colored glasses. The characters are real so it makes writing the Bozos toons a little easier. It almost writes itself in a sense because I can imagine what they might really say to each other in real life.
No. I don't really think the Broncos will lose to the Raiders. But it worked for the gag. I do think that these next few weeks will be interesting ones. The Broncos won one of the two MUST win games (the Steelers) but obviously they have to beat the Chargers as well. The defense was tested but won't face that kind of passing attack again for awhile. That favors the Broncos chances to win their upcoming AFC west games.
