Sunday Night Football Open Thread It’s the Stoned Yokel vs. Marmalard in the Whale’s Vagina for all the AFC West marbles, and I figure I’m safer and better off listening to this on the radio on the drive back to my little university town from L.A. rather than watch Al and John. “But you’re a Broncos fan, aren’t you, […]
