One of the most enjoyable things about the Broncos' 35-21 win over the Chargers last night (and there were many of them) was the sight of San Diego QB Philip Rivers's frequent temper tantrums. Ranting, complaining, yelling into his own helmet: He put on quite a show in defeat, and Twitter Nation definitely noticed. In fact, the main debate during and after the game was whether Rivers is a cry baby, a whiner or both. Continue for twenty hilarious examples, illustrated with images from the game.

These Young Refugees Know All About Winning and Losing -- They Just Want to Play

Like a lot of newcomers, Jason Hicks was a bit flummoxed by his first visit to the Shadow Tree apartments last year. The complex, just a short stroll off East Colfax in Aurora, is home to a growing number of refugee families, relocated from places like Nepal and Burma and Somalia. It's a population that remains largely invisible to most metro-area residents, a cluster of otherness separated from the larger community by barriers of language and culture and the thick walls of I-225, which runs like a concrete curtain right across the street.

Hicks, a 33-year-old electrician and former PE teacher, had come to Shadow Tree to check out a program he'd heard about through his church; volunteers had been scrounging bicycles for the refugee kids and showing up regularly at the apartments to repair them. Hicks thought that sounded cool. But when he first entered the Shadow Tree complex, he felt like he was crossing an international border.

Video: ESPN's Skip Bayless Says Kobe Bryant's Colorado Rape Charge Gave Him "Sizzle"

"First Take" host Cari Champion seen trying to decide if killing Skip Bayless live on the air would be a good or bad career move. Video below.
Plenty of Colorado sports fans know ESPN's Skip Bayless as an idiot if only for his advocacy of Tim Tebow as an NFL quarterback even when he wasn't guiding the Broncos to still-inexplicable victories. But Bayless took his usual meatheadedness to heretofore unforeseen levels when he recently suggested during an episode of ESPN's First Take, as seen in a clip on view below, that the reputation of the Los Angeles Lakers' Kobe Bryant had actually been enhanced by the sexual-assault allegation made against him in Eagle County, Colorado back in 2003. Really.

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.

Florida State University and its head coach, Jimbo Fisher, have been criticized in many quarters for overlooking off-the-field misdeeds by its Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback, Jameis Winston, in a bid to win another national championship. But over the weekend, when FSU bested Notre Dame in one of the most watched college football games of the year, Fisher received support from an unusual source: Denver Post editor Greg Moore.

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.
