Draft Time

You know how much I love the Colorado Rockies, and I think it’s important that you know the Denver Broncos hold the same sweet spot in my hardened little heart. As excited as I am about Spring, I always look forward to Fall as well, because it is time to start cheering for my favorite boys in blue and orange again. The best months of the year have to be September and OcRocktober, when my life is lit-up with the likes of Todd Helton, Troy Tulowitzki, Chris Ianetta, Ryan Spilbourghs, and Tim Tebow, Eddie Royal, Zane Beadles and now – Von Miller will join that list. It was an exciting night for the Denver Broncos last night, as the team drafted Von Miller, a fabulous linebacker from Texas A&M in the second pick of the first round.

Here’s hoping the lockout doesn’t ruin my two favorite months of the year.

If you’ve made it this far through the post without shaking your head in sports-related disgust, thank you. And just for you, here are some of my favorite game-day treats. We’re a ways out from making these meals/snacks during Broncos games, but luckily they are all just as tasty when enjoyed during nine innings of America’s Favorite Pastime.
