Some NFL Teams Should be Pink*

I am NOT going to talk about what happened at the Broncos Raiders game last week.

I will, however, make a brief observation on the NFL.

Many of the teams that most need to be pink aren't.§

When all the snide and snark drains away, I still want this:

I have all kinds of good Nintendo stuff, Liberace stuff,# mascara stuff†† and maybe even a bit of knitting stuff.‡‡

Really... stay tuned!§§

*FOOTNOTE (asterisked... no, seriously): That's "pink" as in "Victoria's Secret," not "Pink" as in "Get This Party Started."

FOOTNOTE (crossed): Brother texted me: "What the hell happened? I came in, it was 0-0, I put the groceries away, it was 14-0" While I was answering him, trying to find different ways to say "suck," they scored again. Dr. Doom opted for donuts at Safeway as a viable fun alternative to the game. OK, now I'm really not going to talk about it. And it truly takes a saint not to bitch about such a debacle.

FOOTNOTE (double-crossed): Look how funny I am! I made a panty pun!

§FOOTNOTE (swerved): Detroit Lions, I'm looking at you.

FOOTNOTE (paragraphed): Wii! (and in my head that's "wheeeee!" so it's another sort of pun, just doesn't translate well to print)

#FOOTNOTE (pounded): Really.

††FOOTNOTE (ddouble-ccrossed): Really.

‡‡FOOTNOTE (doubble-crossssed): Shock and awe!

§§FOOTNOTE (the mind boggles. Twice.): This blog is what RSS feed was MADE for.

My family used to go see Liberace whenever he came to Nashville. (To this day, I don't really know why. We also always went to see Lawrence Welk and Holiday on Ice.)

Pink looks worst, I'm afraid, on the Broncos. I know you're their girl and all, but pink and orange just cannot ever work together.

You've complimented yourself so nicely on the puns, I'll be moving along now.

I know I'm way late in publishing this (I thought I already had *coughJUVENILEONSETSENILITYcough*), but I had to comment on the pink and orange thing.

It's a big deal in Denver that when we went to new unis in 1998, they were said to be "predominantly orange," though hyper-observant fans quickly noticed they were "very little orange at all, and mostly navy blue, which really doesn't make us happy because any team can wear navy but it takes a confident, unique bunch of folks to rock the orange."

So the fact that you think we have orange uniforms makes me think you work for Pat Bowlen.
