DENVER — We’re here in Denver, where the Rockies fans and Red Sox fans have been overtaken (at least in my hotel) by the Packers fans.
Because, remember, Monday Night Football will be coming to Colorado, meaning that Monday night (Game 5 and MNF) could be mighty busy around here. Think the sports bars might be full for that one?
It’s actually a gorgeous day in Denver, with temperatures probably in the mid-50s (according to my internal gauge). The sun is out, and Blake Street is full of fans and people hawking merchandise, including one of the stranger items I’ve seen. Why exactly would anyone want to buy a shirt with “Red Rox” on it? Who has divided loyalties between those two teams?
We’ll be back with more later, from the press conferences, etc.
