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, 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.
