Greetings from INVESCO Field at Mile High, where there is amazingly scant evidence of the massive mid-week snowfall that paralyzed the region four days ago.
The early-afternoon MVPs here at the stadium are all those responsible for making this place passable for fans to navigate the aisles and stairways throughout the stadium. The same goes for those who got this field ready; frankly, the grass is so lush and the field in such fine shape that it appears more like September than December.
In fact, the only tangible remnants of a blizzard that you’ll see on television are the chest-high piles of snow that sit alongside the walls that encircle the field. The vast majority of the snow in this building has vanished.
A smattering of Broncos are beginning to take the field for warmups, currently led by placekicker Jason Elam and punter Paul Ernster. The Broncos are back in their blue-jersey, white-pants ensemble, unseen since the loss to the Colts two months ago.
Back with more later.
