It doesn’t get much better than that, does it, you BRONCO-MANIACS? Wow!! 11 seconds into overtime and a 80-yard touchdown strike. Tebow reads the defense and Thomas does the rest. The defense was dominant and the O-line gave Tebow all the time in the world. Way to go fellas!!
Have to tell you a funny story. So all week I’m going back and forth with one of my very best friends who played 12 years with the Steelers and has two Super Bowl rings, Gary Dunn (pictured above). We both played at the “U” and played against each other in the league. He owns a hotel, restaurant/sports bar in the Florida Keys called the OV which stands for Oceanview, in Islamorada. Many of you have heard this name that read this blog.
We talked all week long about a friendly wager and right before the game we decide if the Broncos win, I get a dozen Stone Crab Claws and if we don’t, I have to send him a 32 oz buffalo steak. Game on.
This gets a little longer. Game time, I’m at Valor High School for my 13-year old son’s hoops games and one of our teammates’ parents has a small portable TV set, so we’re on the sidelines seated and standing watching TV/cheering the game on and the kids at the same time and everyone’s laughing and asking what the score is throughout the first quarter and almost to the half. The basketball game ends and we hightail it home and watch the rest with the kids and family and I’m texting back and forth the entire game and laughing about Gary sending me extra mustard sauce and making sure he uses Fed-Ex and on and on, sooooo funny.
So the game ends and I have my son who (by the way) wears a number 7 in all his sports does the Tebow in the living room in front of our fireplace and I text it to Gary and he promptly replies with his own version in front of an outdoor fireplace they have at his hotel/sports bar. I posted it on my Facebook page and everyone chimes in within minutes. I also posted my son’s picture below so check it out for a giggle.
Back to the action: I don’t know about you but all week the backing into the playoff comments and the radio guys’ comments about we don’t belong, were ticking me off and I knew we had a pretty good shot. I talked on 93.7 with Mac and Doog on their show about how I thought we would win this game and you know what takes the cake? All the humble pie being eaten by all the commentators on TV that said it wouldn’t happen.
I do have to give them credit though. I think they are having as much fun as we are in this victory. The O-E-O Teeeeeeeebow chant is hysterical. Gotta love it
