Wednesday, Jan. 29, 2014 — Gov. John Hickenlooper today announced a proclamation that temporarily renames Colorado’s tallest majestic mountain peaks -- also known as 14ers -- after individual active players on the Denver Broncos football team. The mountains will go by their new names for one day only -- on Super Bowl Sunday.

The proclamation is pretty funny:

WHEREAS, the State of Colorado is confident that the Denver Broncos will beat the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLVIII; and

WHEREAS, the Denver Broncos gave Coloradans a lot to be proud of this season, including becoming the first team in NFL history to score more than 600 points in a single season and winning the AFC Championship; and

WHEREAS, Seattle makes some, well, OK beer; and

WHEREAS, the Seahawks have a 12th man, whatever, while the Denver Broncos have the greatest fans -- men, women and children -- in pro sports; and

WHEREAS, we are proud of the majestic mountains in Colorado, which is home to 53 14ers – the same number of players on the Denver Broncos’ active roster; and

WHEREAS, Peyton Manning bears a symbolic resemblance to Mount Elbert, the tallest 14er in Colorado, because he stands tall as an extraordinary leader of the Broncos; and

WHEREAS, Matt Prater kicks the football long – an NFL record 64 yards long – and could be compared to Longs Peak; and

WHEREAS, the Broncos offensive line stands together, like our Collegiate Peaks, rooted into the earth and preventing anyone from getting to Peyton Manning; and

WHEREAS, there are many other connections between other 14ers and players as referenced below;

Therefore, I, John W. Hickenlooper, Governor of the State of Colorado, do hereby hurry up and proclaim Sunday, February 2, 2014,

DENVER BRONCOS-MANIA DAY

DENVER—Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper is taking Super Bowl hoopla to new heights.
He announced Wednesday that he's temporarily re-naming Colorado's highest mountains for each member of the Denver Broncos. The state is home to more than 50 mountains over 14,000 feet, called "14-ers" by locals.

Hickenlooper renamed the tallest mountain, Mt. Elbert, for Peyton Manning, while Zane Beadles and other members of the offensive line are getting the Collegiate Peaks range. Capitol Peak, considered to be the most difficult to climb, was temporarily renamed for Champ Bailey. Longs Peak went to long kicker Matt Prater.

In his proclamation, the brewpub pioneer also takes a dig at Seattle, noting that it makes some "OK beer."

Mt. Elbert Peyton Manning.
Mt. Massive Terrance Knighton - AKA POT ROAST.
Mt. Harvard Zane Beadles - He, along with others on the offensive line, are as formidable as the line of Collegiate Peaks.
Blanca Peak Mitch Unrein - He blocks and tackles.
La Plata Peak Jacob Tamme - Just as this is an impressive peak among the Collegiate Peaks, this tight end is an impressive addition to the offense.
Uncompahgre Peak Steven Johnson - His defense is straight forward and uncomplicated.
Crestone Peak Steve Vallos - Like this peak, which is surrounded by other looming 14ers, this center is the rock of impressive offensive lines.
Mt. Lincoln Winston Justice - His name itself, and his humanitarian work in Uganda and Haiti, reflect the name of this majestic peak.
Grays Peak Eric Decker - Grays and Torreys are right next to each other, like the dynamic duo of Decker and Thomas.
Mt. Antero Malik Jackson - This defensive end watches everyone's back.
Torreys Peak Demaryius Thomas
Castle Peak Duke Ihenacho - Because only a duke could vanquish a castle-like offense.
Quandary Peak Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie - His coverage proves to be a quandary for opposing quarterbacks.
Mt. Evans Nate Irving - This linebacker forms an imposing backdrop to opponents just like this peak does to Denver.
Longs Peak Matt Prater - He kicks ‘em long (set an NFL record with a 64-yard field goal vs. Tennessee).
Mt. Wilson Shaun Phillips - Leads the Broncos in sacks this year and will be taking down Russell Wilson.
Mt. Shavano Marquice Cole
Mt. Belford Andre Caldwell - Like this peak’s inclusion with other Collegiate Peaks, he joins an imposing offense.
Crestone Needle Brock Osweiler - At 6 feet, 8 inches', he makes all opponents appear as thin as this 14er.
Mt. Princeton Manny Ramirez.
Mt. Yale Louis Vasquez.
Mt. Bross Jeremy Mincey.
Kit Carson Peak Aaron Brewer - His long snaps find their path just as Kit Carson found paths through the frontier.
Maroon Peak Mike Adams - He maroons opponents due to his tackling prowess (posted a game-high nine tackles and intercepted a pass that led to a Broncos touchdown in Houston).
Tabeguache Peak Chris Kuper.
Mt. Oxford Chris Clark.
Mt. Sneffels Zac Dysert - In the shadow of Manning, the QB may be sniffling for not playing, but is tops nonetheless.
Mt. Democrat Tony Carter - Working on a second degree in political science.
Capitol Peak Champ Bailey - Rated the most difficult peak on 14ers.com.
Pikes Peak Joel Dressen - A Colorado Mountain for a Colorado State University Ram and only player on the roster to graduate from a Colorado university.
Snowmass Mountain Wesley Woodyard.
Mt. Eolus Sione Fua - An eloquent name, like this peak.
Windom Peak Ronnie Hillman - This runninng back runs like the wind.
Challenger Point Montee Ball - He was a challenger for the Heisman Trophy in 2011.
Mt. Columbia Orlando Franklin.
Missouri Mountain Sylvester Williams - He was born in Missouri.
Humboldt Peak Knowshon Moreno - He "bolts" off the line (Ranked fifth in the NFL in scrimmage yards at 1,586) and tied for fifth with 13 scrimmage touchdowns in 2013. Became the first player in franchise history to record 1,000 rushing yards and 500 receiving yards in a single season in 2013.
Mt. Bierstadt Robert Ayers - Just like the way that Ayers makes tackling look easy, this peak is one of the easiest peaks to summit.
Sunlight Peak Omar Bolden - He is known for his power of positive thinking and is not blinded by any sunshine in his tackling prowess.
Handies Peak Quentin Jammer - This defensive player is known for giving a hand to his teammates and those in need through his Jammer Family Foundation helping foster teens.
Culebra Peak Michael Huff.
Ellingwood Point Britton Colquitt - He would be able to land a punt on this point.
Mt. Lindsey Paris Lenon.
Little Bear Peak Trindon Holliday - He’s 5 foot, 5 inches, but is as tough as they come.
Mt. Sherman Wes Welker - Let’s see Richard Sherman cover Wes. Right, good luck with that.
Redcloud Peak Virgil Green.
Pyramid Peak Danny Trevathan - Like the Pyramids of Giza, Danny Trevathan's defense is a wonder of the world. He posted a team high 129 tackles, beating his next closest teammate by 44 and is 11th best in the league.
Wilson Peak Brandon Marshall.
Wetterhorn Peak Vinston Painter.
San Luis Peak Kayvon Webster.
Mt. of the Holy Cross David Bruton - His alma mater is Notre Dame.
Huron Peak C.J. Anderson - Another impressive peak included in the Collegiate Peaks, he is a fine addition to the offense.
Sunshine Peak Julius Thomas - because he always makes himself available to find the sunshine through the defenders and make the catch.

Pretty much. Because it is the Super Bowl, and the number of opposing fans starting stupid threads is higher, a lot of stuff is getting pushed to page 2. So many here are into everything that comes up that it gets posted somewhere within an hour of it coming out.

I guarantee you someone is going to re-post that Belichick article tomorrow and tell us it's a good read. Probably Quoydogs. Ha!

no, but I was good friends in high school with Alfred Warden's nephew. Also, James Irwin lived a few blocks away when he wasn't looking for Noah's Ark.

I had to Google that acronym. How does that POS stick? It's counter-intuitive. That's saying a lot from a Marine. I know acronyms in air on land and sea.

Who uses an acronym for Too Long; Didn't Read? What's the point in even mentioning it. Seems more effective to just move on and leave it alone.
