You don't remember John Elway?

He may be a big part of Broncos history, but he wasn't quite playing yet in '73 and '74. :whistle: The first "name" quarterback was Craig Morton.  Otis Armstrong, Rick Upchurch, Haven Moses, Riley Odoms, Jon Keyworth, Randy Gradishar, Tom Jackson, Billy Thompson, Karl Mecklenburg, Lyle Alzado... see I can rattle off a few more from before the Elway glory years. :smartass:

Lyle Alzado was a Raider too!  Did you hate him when he was playing with them. ;-)

Reminds me of when I met Brad Park, the HoF Hockey player.  He said the best compliment he ever got was a Bruin's fan who said, "When you were with the Rangers, I hated your guts.  Now I love ya."

By the time he left Denver, Alzado was about done anyway.  He was 'roided out.   I had no feelings one way or the other.

Amen.  Any team that is self styled as "America's Team" or any other such appellation that indicates that I'm supposed to be behind them no matter what is an affront to my personal fanaticism.  I'm a "fan" of 2 teams.  They happen to to be the home teams of places I've lived.  Even though I was born and raised in Minnesota, the Vikings are my second team.  The Broncos will be my team until I die.

I moved to Denver in 1973, when the Broncos were only 4 years in the league.  Quarterback was Charlie Johnson and the halfback was Floyd Little - those are the only names I remember - maybe the only ones worth remembering from those days.  I suffered through 4 dreadful Super Bowl losses, a couple of them when it didn't even seem that we belonged in the league, much less in the game.  One of those losses was to the Cowboys.  I will hate them for as long as I root for the Broncos.

Despite that, the Oakland Raiders will always #1 on my hit list.  They are just so easy to dislike.

I would want to forget those ten years in the AFL also if I were a Bronco fan. But I would say  to your chagrin the hated raiders are going to  get out of this rut sooner than later the way I see it. RM is the complete opposite of Al Davis the team has had to operate at abut a 60% salary in order to undo the mess the old man made plus get rid of the underachieving overpaid. Even though they are finally free of the mess  next year and have 50million plus to spend on FA's I see Reggie using all that cash  for depth mainly and maybe 2 marquee players. The raiders are going to be a good team in the next 2-3 years.

    • KIT FAQ'S | Full Swing Golf Frequently Asked Questions Presale FAQs No. Reservations cost $100 for each model.  Yes, reservation fees are refunded with reservation cancellation by e-mailing kitsupport@fullswing.com. A reminder at this... @david_wedzik and I put $100 each down on a pre-order and our "exclusive" pre-order window opens the 25th through the 27th next week. We're looking at dropping $3899 (each, if we want one each like we had planned), and I'm not sure why I'd drop that — or even another $1899 — when the Mevo+ does those 16 things. The bold in the list above are done by the Mevo+ (as well as "Flight Time" and "Shot Shape" and "Spin Loft"), and so the Full Swing Kit adds… Club Path (likely measured), and then two likely calculated data points in face angle and face to path. I haven't seen any reviews of these things, of course. I don't even know if they work indoors to start, because elsewhere in the email, it says that a software update will be available to enable some modes in Q1 2022, and it may have implied that this included indoor mode (but may have just included E6 integration? I can't be sure.) It requires ten feet behind the golfer, while the Mevo+ will work with seven to eight. Has anyone seen any good reviews of the thing?
    • I hate the "Ball Fishers" that cannot pass any water without pulling out their retriever and plucking out some balls.  If I see a nice shiny one where I think I went it I may pull it out just to confirm where I need to drop, but usually I do not even do that.  Its a time waster and usually the balls retrieved are not balls I would like to play with.
    • I couldn't stop muffle laughing at this knowing this could have been my late mom had she ever played golf... 😂.  It does remind me of another lady I played with a couple of years ago. She was a 6-cap having a bad day. Incidentally my wife was riding with me that day and she couldn't stop the church giggles at some of the tantrums. Few times I had to stop the cart far enough in between shots/holes to let her laugh it off without embarrassing the nice lady. Something about her British accent made it particularly more entertaining. At one time leaving a particularly bad venture she tripped/stumbled and fell trying to walk over bushes to get back to our parked carts. Walking close enough to her I instinctively held my hand out to help her up but she swatted away in anger and disgust. As the book says, hilarity ensued..  My wife has changed her mind about golf being a boring 'sport' since.
    • Well....finally got out to play my first round after yeeeears.  I have been to the range a few times before, but yesterday was my first.  My putting was awful..surprinsingly I was driving pretty well..but the putting just killed me..no touch or feel..either blowing it by or way short.  Iron play was decent, but more hooks than normal.   I was hitting good drives then all of a sudden felt this pain in my right elbow area (not the elbow joint but the muscle area on the inside forearm)..damn..it was getting worse and worse..fudge.   The last hole was a 190 yard par 3..fairly long for me for a par 3.  I decided to take out the 5 iron and replace with the 5 hybrid.  I ended up hitting probably the best shot of the round for me and landed on the green about 3 feet away for birdie..ended up tap  in par.   Resting up for a few days to see how it goes..either way had a good time.
