No, this isn't Peyton Manning. Another image and a video below.
On Sunday, the Broncos' Peyton Manning set the all-time NFL record for most touchdown passes in a career -- news so big that even TV stations like KOMO in Seattle, whose Seahawks clobbered the Broncos in the Super Bowl earlier this year, had to cover it. Problem is, KOMO swapped out a Payton for a Peyton -- after which the station had to spend a hilariously humiliating ninety seconds or so eating shit over the mistake. Get details and see the video below.

It was just last week when the Broncos' narrow win over the woeful Jets convinced a considerable portion of Twitter Nation that Denver was overrated. No more: Last night's superlative 42-17 crushing of the excellent San Francisco 49ers not only saw Peyton Manning setting the all-time touchdown pass mark, but also featured the kind of performance fans have been waiting all year to see. Simply put, the Broncos were great on every level.

But even before this Thursday's huge matchup against Philip Rivers and the San Diego Chargers looming, has Denver already established itself as the class of the NFL likely to make it back to the Super Bowl? Some answers can be found in this week's top twenty tweets, illustrated by images from the victory. Check them out below.

With all the problems afflicting the NFL right now, one of the least important involves coarse language among players on the field -- including the term "nigga," usually sanitized as the N-word. Yet the league continues to punish players for the word's use -- including, presumably, Terrance "Pot Roast" Knighton, who's been hit with an $11,025 fine for allegedly vocalizing a racial slur during this past weekend's game against the New York Jets.

The Colorado Rockies are a bad joke of a Major League Baseball franchise, yet owner Dick Monfort has been extremely slow to make changes -- maybe because of all the money he's raking in from the new Coors Field party deck. But this morning brings news that general manager Dan O'Dowd, who helped assemble a team that was lucky to go 66-96 this year, has resigned -- and that's not all. Photos, details and early reaction below.

The reactions to the Broncos' 41-20 victory yesterday over the previously undefeated Arizona Cardinals have run the gamut. Some fans are praising the Broncos for a points explosion spurred by Peyton Manning's 500th career touchdown pass and a career-high 479 yards through the air, while others grouse that the win was devalued because the Cards were down to their third-string quarterback by game's end and defensive end Calais Campbell was injured in a Julius Thomas chop block Arizona coach Bruce Arians called the dirtiest play he's ever seen.

Glass half full or glass half empty? That's the debate among our top twenty tweets, featuring images from the contest. Check them out below.

Justin Simoni's Amazing Bike-Hike of Colorado's Fourteeners

justin.simoni.565x300.jpg
Justin Simoni.
There are folks who consider climbing all of Colorado's fourteeners a life's work. Then there's a small, hardy corps of peak-baggers who compete with one another to nail those babies all at once, in the shortest amount of time; the current record runs at about ten days. And then there's endurance athlete Justin Simoni, who regards the standard approach of driving to a trailhead in order to commence hiking to be -- well, a bit slack.

This past summer, Simoni decided to tackle a challenge that only the most gonzo of the state's climbers have ever attempted: an entirely self-supported, self-powered tour of the Colorado fourteener circuit that involves bicycling to each trailhead and ending up back at the original starting point. The end result? More than 1,600 miles of biking, 388 miles of hiking, more than 300,000 feet of elevation gain -- all in what appears to be a new record time, in spite of one of the wettest, most unfavorable climbing seasons in memory.
