The only reason you're scared about the game tomorrow is because you've had too much time to think about it. Think about anything too long and it gets strange and distorted. Think about the word "assuage". By definition, it would seem to be helpful here for a somewhat nervous fan base:Assuage, verb, 1. make (an unpleasant feeling) less intense.
But if you repeat "assuage", think about it too much, perhaps stare at it, analyze, or dissect it for too long, watch out. It's no longer comforting. It's a sausage -- and I, for one, think it's sage advice to not want to understand how sausage is made. How can all that awful stuff taste good when mixed together and put inside a translucent edible sleeve? Don't go there. Drink your beer and wash it down.
It's the same with tomorrow's game. If you're worried about that crafty joker Eric Weddle, the bolo- (but NOT Super Bowl-) bound Phillip Rivers or McCoy's "blueprint", you've had too much time to read, watch or listen to alleged experts whose job it is to hype and convince you that what you know for sure, you don't know so much. It's a subtle but powerful magic trick and with the media genie light years out of the bottle it ain't never going back. Your best defense? Look inside. Trust the big picture, the whole season, the team that is playing tomorrow in orange that you've had the immense pleasure to watch and scream for all year long. Trust the Mile High Magic. Trust the fact that PFM has been there before and has a healthy and very talented cast of characters around him.
Tomorrow - it's just one step on the long road toward the goal that was set exactly one year ago. That nightmare is over. The dream is here. Believe Broncos fans. Go Broncos.
