Big photos below.
Everyone knew last night's Broncos preseason closeout against the Arizona Cardinals was meaningless. But when someone gives you free tickets at the last minute, does any of that matter? Hell, no.

Even though the game ended with a 32-24 Cards win (and, reportedly, a serious injury when a man fell from an escalator), there was still plenty of colorful spectacle to go around -- including a new T-shirt design sure to be coveted by Broncos fans everywhere. Here's the story, in words and photos.

"Peyton fuckin' Manning!" declared the T-shirt hawker my wife and I encountered on the long walk from our distant parking lot to the stadium.

This hawker apparently prefers to remain anonymous.
Then, after flipping the shirt over, he recited the slogan on the back: "If you don't bleed Mile High Orange, take your bitch-ass home!"

Shockingly, I didn't see anyone actually purchase one of these items despite an excellent sales pitch: "Just in time for back-to-school shopping!" Maybe that's because people were mesmerized by the sight of the giant banners on the side of the stadium -- Peyton fuckin' Manning on one side, Baltimore Ravens heart-crusher Joe Flacco on the other:

You'll want to save this shot for your scrap book.
Still, despite the national publicity garnered by the NFL's decision to put Flacco pics all over Denver as a way to hype the season's kickoff game on September 5, we didn't hear fans angrily fulminating about the indignity, even when they got up close to Big Joe....

Wonder what they're gonna do with this thing on September 6?
Maybe that's because they were focused on dealing with the new, NFL-mandated security procedures, which limited the sort of bags that can be brought into the stadium -- hence a bag-check tent on the outskirts of the grounds:

The forbidden bag outpost.
"I told my wife about this, but she didn't believe me," groused one guy, who decided he'd rather take his beloved's purse back to the car than deal with the hassle of checking it.

I have a Denver fuckin colorado shirt... Same design, same sellers... They told me I had to check my shirt at bag check and I could not wear it inside... I covered it with another shirt. After getting in the game I popped the second Hirt off(it was hot) and within 5 min, a huge argus security guard told me I could not wear it in the stadium!?!? There is a badged vendor selling them on the way in wtf? They said it was the leagues policy and that the stadium decides who can sell merch..... Kinda weak

And then we complain, as if our sensibilities have been offended.

So, he's fucking himself? I've often been told to do that, but never could quite accomplish it. And besides, shouldn't it read "Gronk fucking Tebow?"
