Is Denver Nuggets super-mascot Rocky a Republican? Signs point to "yes." On Monday, @ColoGOP tweeted a photo of Rocky at an event for the Grand Old Party. Only problem: Ken Solomon, the man inside the Rocky suit, didn't get an okay from his bosses about the gig -- and afterward, they weren't happy. Photos and details below.

Hard to believe, but it was around this time just three years ago that Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow's chosen way of celebrating a touchdown -- lowering himself to one knee in prayer -- became a national phenomenon dubbed Tebowing. Today, Tebow is long gone from Denver and on-the-field play (he's currently a commentator for ESPN's SEC network), but Tebowing is back, if only as a talking point after the Kansas City Chiefs' Husain Abdullah was penalized for celebrating a touchdown on Monday Night Football by going into a prayer pose associated with Muslims rather than Christians.

Will Renewed Beer Sales at Folsom Field Help CU Get Back Onto Playboy's Party List?

It's been a rough September for the University of Colorado. First the Buffs football team lost to their now arch-rivals, the Colorado State University Rams, in the annual early-season battle at Sports Authority Field, and then the entire school fell off Playboy's yearly list of the biggest party schools in the nation.

That disgrace is almost unthinkable for a university that came in first just three years ago and third in 2013. Even worse, those very same arch-rivals up in Fort Collins are now eighth on the list -- making parents proud.

Broncos fans definitely aren't predictable. After last week's narrow victory over the Chiefs, plenty of Denver loyalists took to Twitter to declare that the Broncos suck even though they were 2-0. But following yesterday's 26-20 overtime loss to the Seahawks, most tweets were upbeat because Denver lost a nail-biter, as opposed to being blown out again as in the Super Bowl. Here are our top twenty examples, illustrated with images from the game.

More memes below.
Ever since Peyton Manning bought a slew of Papa Johns franchises, meme makers have linked the purchase to Colorado's legalization of marijuana -- and now Manning has, too. In an interview with MMQB's Peter King, he said, "There's some different laws out here in Colorado. Pizza business is pretty good out here, believe it or not, due to some recent law changes."

Congratulations, Meme Nation! You were right! Check out some of the most memorable Peyton-pot-pizza memes below. Hopefully they'll help get you through this Sunday's Super Bowl rematch with the Seattle Seahawks feeling satisfied and mellow no matter what happens.

Here's Why 40,000 Broncos Fans Hate Phil Simms's Guts

Categories: Sports

If you're a Denver Broncos fan, then you've no doubt endured a broadcast featuring either NBC's Chris Collinsworth or Phil Simms, who calls games for CBS. Both have earned the enduring hatred of Broncos fans over the years because of what some would say is a clear bias against the beloved orange-and-blue warriors of the gridiron. And that would be no surprise, as Collinsworth played wide receiver for the rival Cincinnati Bengals in the 1990s and Simms was quarterback for the New York Giants during the Super Bowl in which that team beat the Broncos.

But after last Sunday's match-up with the Kansas City Chiefs, some Broncos fans have had enough of Simms. On September 15, someone started a petition on Change.org asking CBS to ban Simms from calling Broncos games -- and by Thursday, the move had garnered more than 40,000 signatures.

Videos: Brandon Marshall Becomes Latest Ex-Bronco in Post-Ray Rice NFL Hit Parade

Last week, as we reported, 104.3 The Fans' D-Mac and Alfred Williams argued that the alleged rape committed by ex-Bronco Perrish Cox was actually worse than the actions of former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice, whose caught-on-video punching of his former fiancee/now-wife turned him into the NFL's domestic violence poster boy.

Now, another onetime Bronco, wide receiver Brandon Marshall, has stepped into an unwanted spotlight, with prominent attorney Gloria Allred ripping the league for the ridiculously minor punishment meted out to him for domestic violence episodes committed during his time with Denver. Photos, videos and more below.

Talk about high expectations. The Broncos won yesterday's game against the Chiefs to go 2-0 in the young NFL season, yet the way they did it -- eking out a last-minute 24-17 victory after nearly giving up a big lead, just like in last week's season opener against the Colts -- inspired Broncos lovers and haters alike to express their frustration on Twitter. Too critical too soon? Decide after counting down the following twenty photo-illustrated tweets, complete with a bonus Vine.

The scandal over the release of a video showing Baltimore Ravens star Ray Rice brutally punching his ex-fiancee/now-wife continues to build, with the NFL currently scrambling to deal with reports that a league rep received a copy of the clip in April despite claims that no one in the office had seen it. That made us curious to discover how many members of the Denver Broncos had tackled the topic on Twitter. Our dispiriting estimate: two. Look below to see who spoke up -- and the dozens who haven't thus far.
