Hail The Conquering Broncos

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Greeting Broncos fans. It is I, Smackdad, staff writer from your sister site, Gang Green Nation. I have come to pay tribute to the great Peyton Manning and your beloved Broncos. I have been inspired by the transcendent brilliance of the Broncos and Sir Manning (not to mention losing a bet to your own Bronco Mike on the outcome of yesterday's game). So, without further ado, I congratulate all of your and your superb team, and pay tribute in the form of some verse. I hope you find some favor in it.

Ode To Manning Magnificence (Or Orange You Glad You're A Broncos Fan?)

What media despised warriors are these

That run the Chargers down?

Why they are of royal line

Sibling's of Peyton's crown

Heir's of King John the First

Along the narrow Elway

Come to trounce the pretenders

Under Prince Philip's sway

King Manning, always debonair

O! What vindication sweet

To send to sudden death's despair

The Chargers to defeat

What sublime arm, what noble brow

What calm and true demeanor

Much better with Orange Julius

Than Lucky Coby Fleener

Why were the Ponies so despised

Unloved despite their seeding?

Perhaps 'twas boredom in disguise

Acclaim is always fleeting

Let history record this day

The King was not alone

Defense arose and came to play

With hits of crunching bone

To overcome adversity

And turnovers twice

The defense strove to crush SD

And did more than just suffice

Yet no champion is ever crowned

Without facing the abyss

And Bronco Mike's true faith was tested

Would Peyton shoot and miss?

A mighty comeback from Gold and Blue

Onsides kick and fumble aided

Led direct to moment true

Would Royal Orange be upbraided?

Nay! Again I say Nay!

It was not meant to be

Not this day, this special day

Of football destiny

One final drive, toward football glory

The crowd at fevered pitch

King Peyton erased the Charger story

With throws of perfect pitch

Not once but twice third down was faced

Did King Peyton worry?

Nay, for this was Peyton's Place

Now covered with Peyton's Glory

Division rival vanquished

The Chargers duly slain

What further pain and anguish

Will the Bronco's inflict again?

Two battles are yet unfought

Two teams to yet Orange Crush

History will show what wrought

The Broncos in a rush

To vanquish a pretender to the throne

A Tom invited for lunch

Will find too late, he is the meal

Confit of Brady Bunch

Then East young man! To Fair NJ

Smackdad's current lair

The Broncos will come to play

In frigid Jersey air

The NFC's favorite sons

On Metlife's altar offered

For Peyton's ritual sacrifice

They will be duly proffered

Then all Denver will rise up

In riotous cacophony

To celebrate the chosen one

King Peyton's SB trophy

The game is won, the tale is told

Smackdad has reached an end

May fate in languid time unfold

And prove to be your friend

Congratulations to Bronco Mike and all Broncos fans on your victory. May you crush the Brady Bunch like grapes and make them whine.
