Paradise Lost

You Don't Bulldoze Mt. Rushmore, now do you?
I'm not sure why we seem so intent on tearing down history. Oh, I know, it's all about the money. It always is. Baseball, more than any other sport is about history. Fenway, Wrigley and Yankee stadium. Three monuments to the American pastime. Make that two and counting.

Defense anybody?
Have you recovered from the Broncos jitters yet? The Broncs defense will have to toughen up a bit if they want this win streak to go on much longer. I feel as though we are either watching an old WAC game or playing Madden football. I've actually watched basketball games with lower scores.

    The Stadium was a cathedral, it's a crying shame

    however this is one Sox fan that is giddy that the last game there....was in the regular season

    Now if only the Trop would burn down before the playoffs start

    Thank God.

    Hopefully the Karma gets reversed on the Yanks when they move into the new joint. I hope they have a dozen losing seasons to break the place in.

    I'll never forgive the Yankees for the Jeffery Maier "Home run that wasn't".

    There are a lot of reasons to hate the Yankees. That's just one of them.

    Good riddance to Yankee Stadium.

    I'm so happy that the Yanks are in the beginnings of a major decline. Inflated payroll, aging overrated players, and their precious little ballpark is getting detonated soon.

    This is very good.

    I'm never one for preserving every old building on the continent most of which are still way newer than the "new" buildings routinely demolished elsewhere, but Yankee Stadium should have stayed.

    On the Broncos D: I think it is far too early to tell. Two years ago, everyone was praising a D that didn't allow a TD in its first several games. Trouble was they didn't play any real offenses in those games, and when they did, their weaknesses showed. This year it is the opposite. They've played 2 of the 3 top offenses in the league and everyone is screaming how bad it is. Would they have allowed 29 points by the Jets as a supposedly good D did? After this weekend, folks will surely be talking about what an improvement the D showed. Trouble is that the Chiefs aren't likely to pose any real threat. Time to panic is after 8 games. Not after 3.

    So, what happens if the unexpected happens, and the Chiefs somehow hang 40 points on the Broncos D? How many Broncos fans will come out of the woodwork and say "Well, it was because of the crowd noise." or something lame like that.

    Don't think that the Chiefs can have a game like that? Well, how many people thought that a refs whistle could decide the outcome of the game? Or how many people thought that Tom Brady would be lost for the season?

    Stranger things have happened. There's going to be at least one real stinker of a game this season for Denver. It could be the Chiefs game just as easily as any other on the schedule.

    I'm just curious what the Bronco Nation's excuse will be if the Chiefs were to hang the 40 on the Broncos.

    Discuss.

    The question is - what will the nay sayers' excuse be when the Broncos pitch a shutout?

    What happens if Jay Cutler goes into a diabetic shock and dies on the field of play? Has anyone considered that?

    That may be the most soulless heartless thing anyone has posted on here ever

    What is wrong with you?

    Hey, it's an honest question. Nothing's wrong with me. It's just something I was wondering about.

    Nothing wrong with an honest question. No more offensive than that book "101 uses for a dead cat."

    What would be 101 used for a dead quarterback?

    Decoy? Speed-bump for the defense to have to hop over? Spare ball holder for kickoffs (just set him up in any position?)

    A new halftime show attraction?

    Mike - That's one of the funniest posts I've read here in a while. Nice to see a sense of humor here for a change.

    I vote for "endzone pylon."
