I invested a couple of hours in Broncos: The Complete History on Tuesday afternoon.
Consider it time well spent — and worth the $19.95 purchase for a Broncos fan in your life as the holidays approach, which for the narcissistic among you, could be what Alvin of the Chimpunks once spoke of: “A present — from me to me!”
The centerpiece is the documentary on Broncos history. To click “play” is to instantly transmogrify into old-school mode, with the old “D” logo used until 1996 superimposed over a shot of Mile High Stadium. Shots of Lionel Taylor, Floyd Little, Lou Saban and Marlin Briscoe flash on the screen. Saban’s famed exhortation — “They’re killing me, Whitey (Dovell), they’re killing me!” — is next. Images of Lyle Alzado, Rich “Tombstone” Jackson sacking Daryle Lamonica, Tom Jackson, Randy Gradishar and Haven Moses follow.
And all that is before the name “John Elway” is mentioned.
