  • Hickenlooper renames Colorado Peaks for Broncos [M]

    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

                Hickenlooper renames Colorado Peaks for Broncos

                http://www.journal-advocate.com/ster...cos?source=rss

                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."

                Code:
                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.

                              I think we identified the problem.
