It's fair to say the post-Super Bowl blowout malaise that afflicted so many Broncos fans earlier this year is over: Prior to Denver's closer-than-it-should-have-been victory over the Indianapolis Colts, tailgaters at Mile High Stadium were incredibly amped for the new season, as our Eric Gruneisen discovered.

At Friday's Rocky Mountain Showdown, I was decked out in CU attire, since my daughters are students there. And when passing through the Rams' section of the parking lot, I tended to get one of two reactions. The first was: "Fuck you! Fuck CU!" And the second was "FUCK YOU! FUCK CU!"

Astonishingly, most CSU boosters maintained this level of passion throughout the game, during which CU blew a 17-7 third quarter lead by giving up 24 unanswered points to lose 31-17. The contrast between them and CU fans was illustrated by a series of Jumbotron juxtapositions. Shot of CSU section: Everyone going crazy! Shot of CU section: Bro looking at his phone.

Jake Shane captures some of these differences in photos on view below. Check them out here -- and click to see the complete CSU and CU Face Off at the 2014 Rocky Mountain Showdown slide show.

This week's Denver Cruiser Ride theme was "Road Warriors," and that was appropriate, since the weather was positively apocalyptic -- or at least it rained a bit. That didn't stop the Cruisers, though, and as a bonus, their end-of-the-world costumes helped repel the moisture. Check out Jake Shane's photos of the fun below.
