Default Broncos scream for ice cream

Give Josh McDaniels credit for knowing how to lighten the mood.

Things have been somewhat dreary around Dove Valley lately, what with key player after key player going down with various injuries, and McDaniels, with a little help from VP of Operations Chip Conway, knew exactly what would make everyone smile. And that thing, as any parent knows well, is ice cream.

McDaniels and his staff figured out how to hire an ice cream truck and stock it with enough frozen treats to feed at least 225 people. Near the end of the two-hour practice, the truck slowly made its way into the practice facility and parked between two tents just off the practice fields.

The first-team offense was lined up against the first-team defense, and Kyle Orton was barking out signals when McDaniels gave the truck the signal.

The bells came on, playing that very familiar sound of summer, and the truck drove on the field. As players looked around to see what was happening, McDaniels blew his whistle and yelled, “Ice Cream!”

Players rushed to the truck, none faster than defensive end Ryan McBean and offensive tackle D’Anthony Batiste, who actually skipped.

“I didn’t have a clue what was going on,” rookie quarterback Tim Tebow said. “I figured they were putting back on the music and someone actually put that on their playlist, and and I was like, ‘What?’ But then, you know, found out it was the ice cream truck. So it was a cool surprise.”

When the players got their tasty treats, the security guards were instructed to open the ropes and let all the children who were watching practice run onto the field to get free treats as well.

That's pretty cool. Props to Josh. The guys are working hard and morale is probably kinda low with all the stuff that's going on, so its a nice surprise for them and also the kids.

Good move, Josh.

Breaking News: 10 unconfirmed Broncos suffered what appeared to be an "ice cream headache." This will sideline those players for an unspecified period of time. Some fans were quoted as saying "McDaniels pushed his players into eating too much ice cream."

Dude, I love that Tim Crowder was in the crowd (#96) and was one of the first to grab a snack.

Clearly Mcdaniels did this to punish the lactose intolerant players on the team.

Lostknight stated that it was a catastrophy that the ice cream truck was only stocked with vanilla and not a variety of flavors. This will harm us for the season.
