Big photos below.
It's the morning after the Broncos' ugly Super Bowl defeat, and a lot of us are feeling pretty downbeat about now. But there's a very big bright spot: We live in Denver, a great American city that's got an incredible number of things going for it beyond whether our football team wins or loses.

As a reminder, we've drawn inspiration from a couple of past posts for a list of ten great things about Denver more than capable of easing any lingering Super Bowl pain. Count them down below.

Number 10:

No need to wait for Denver Cruisers rides during the summer....

...when you can now rent a B-cycle all year long....

...and ride Denver's 650 miles of paved bike paths whenever the mood strikes and the weather allows (which is almost always).

Number 9:

i am from here and let me tell you, denver is becoming douchebag central. i have lived all over but came back because i love it. in the last two years we have been flooded with jerkoffs. not sure if it is out of towners looking for weed and sunshine, or suburbanites who want to turn everything into the gap but it is getting gross. urbanites are forced out due to high rent and the douchebag kings just keep moving in. go home whoever you are, i want my city back.

Lauren's meaningless ramblings aside, 'Stinking Geek' (Sterling Meeks) hopes his usual homosexual 'thirsts' will somehow transfer to someone like me who loves Hott White & Asian Chicks (see my FB Wall), while 'Queer Boy' Sterling Geek lusts for what he loves, 'Big Black Cocks' !

Casa bonita. Best food in Denver by far. The atmosphere and everything else sucks, but luckily their 5 star chef makes up for that with cuisine that is so delicious!

Too bad the only chili worth eating is from New Mexico. The mayor claiming the delicious food is from here is why they lost in the first place. Don't upset the chili gods.
