A few years ago I wrote how my football watching habits had changed. It seems like every year since then the amount of football I watch on the weekends has decreased. This year I've watched the least amount of football ever. It's not that I don't like football. I love the game. But this year between writing the book, family, and other commitments, there wasn't a lot of time to spend on football. (The only game I watched this year was the Broncos Cowboy game on Thanksgiving Day.)
But even though I wasn't cheering them on, my Broncos played well this year and ending the season with a 13-3 record. Fortunately they had a playoff game on a day when I had nothing planned, I made sure I set aside three hours to watch.
I'm glad I did. If I had to pick one game to watch, this was the one. To cheer on the Broncos as they manhandled the two-time defending SuperBowl champions 27-13 was well worth it. I'm already looking forward to next weekend's game.
