Should I be this excited?

As I woke up this morning and started thinking about the dawn of a new football season, I found myself as excited as my 4 year old on Christmas morning.  I know a lot of fans are jaded by the last several months and all that has gone on. Should I take a principled stand and withhold my money from the NFL and it's greed?  Should I be mad right now that this all went down?  My feelings after the jump.

While I have my opinions about the lockout and how it unfolded, right now I could care less.  If that makes me a sucker or enabler, so be it.  Did I write the check for my season tickets in the midst of bickering that made it clear neither side cared about my interests?  Damn right!  Will I be there Sept. 12 against the raiders in a frenzy?  Try and stop me!  

The truth is, I don't live for the Broncos.  I have a life filled with many things more important than football.  But the Broncos represent something inside that I love.  A loyalty to something I have no direct involvement in.  A community of 76,000 people living play-by-play for 3 hours on a Sunday afternoon along the beautiful front range of the Rockies.  A tie to simpler time in my life long-since past.  Memories of my dad and all he taught me.  Silly?  Perhaps, but this is more than a game to me.  

We may be awful this year.  I really don't care.  OK I do - probably more than a grown man should.  Point is, I will be there this year and every year.  It is time for that magical time of year we all love.  I for one am excited for football!  I hope you are too.
