Go Broncos!

The NFL deadline for teams to sign free agents has passed and I remain an unsigned free agent.  Therefore, I will not be playing in SuperBowl 50.  Nevertheless, I will be watching intently, wearing my Peyton Manning #18 jersey, which I was wearing while I watched the Broncos defeat the New England Patriots for the AFC Championship.  I am glad to help in that way.

The NFC champs, the Carolina Panthers, are favored by the Las Vegas oddsmakers.  Peyton and I do not worry about that.  We will just do what we have to do to win.

Despite being unsigned by the Broncos, I do not hold a grudge.  There is always next year to make the roster.  In the meantime, I have explained to my supportive wife that it is important for me to keep my weight up.  I am married to the right woman for that.  This weekend Sugar made a wonderful Italian dinner for thirty people.  As usual, she overdid it.  We have leftovers.  I love her lasagna.  Therefore, I ate lasagna for breakfast the next day.  Breakfast of Champions!  And for dinner?  The dinner of champions — ziti and bread and a canoli for  dessert.  Don’t worry Coach Kubiak, I am the perfect weight for an NFL linebacker.  Give me a call sometime after the SuperBowl victory.  I will be ready for next season.

Broncos Update

You have to read between the lines to catch the subtle hints that the Broncos are positioning to sign me to a handsome contract.  Let me point out what is obvious to me if not to you readers and football fans.

Von Miller has predicted a Superbowl victory.  Could that be based on improving the roster with, well, me?

The team is trying to get Elvis Dumervil to renegotiate his contract to make more room under the salary cap.  Why?  Duh!  To pay me, obviously!

D.J. Williams might be released, which would free up $6 million for the salary cap, which could be applied toward my contract.  Ah, hah!

As I observe this maneuvering, I grow more and more confident.  As I await that call from John Elway or Pat Bowlen, I am getting more and more excited.

It feels good to be wanted.

When one is delusional, life can be fun.  Even if you are not actually on the beach, you can still enjoy it if you think you are.

I better go work out.  I need to keep my weight up if I am going to be playing with the big boys.
