Winds are whipping at Mile High

Marijuana is now legal in Denver.  But good luck lighting a joint or a bong or a blunt or a roach outdoors today.

Based on images from the CBS pregame show, which featured the Color Guard struggling with the flags and the flames flanking the entrance for the Broncos players blowing sideways instead of upward, it’s very windy.

According to our friends at Weather.com, the sustained winds currently are in the range of 23 mph.  It’ll slowly drop throughout the game, finishing in the range of 15-to-18 mph.

That means more running for both teams, and less passing from the two franchise quarterbacks who’ll be trying to advance their legacies with a divisional-round win.

The loser will have more time to golf.  In the wind or otherwise.

    The Broncos cheating the salary cap in both their Super Bowl wins makes me root against them. Too bad, I actually like Peyton Manning.

    Chargers probably won’t win this game. Though, beating the Pats will take a bit more than Manning.

    Eating a brownie would be a better call for going to a game. Effect lasts longer if it’s ingested. Allegedly.

    It was a way of life back then. The Cowboys and Niners were even worse.

    Manning can handle it. Rivers, NOT so much.

    Similar all teams filming the other teams. Only the Pats were fined.
