I have not yet reached the “Old Codger” stage of life, but I am old enough to see their point when they say, “winters aren’t the same as they used to be”. Hurtling breakneck down steep slopes, snow forts and snow banks taller than dad are held up as evidence against recent winters, especially this year’s sub-par showing. Nothing seems to measure up when viewed through the cloudy lens of time. If my twelve-year-old self had suffered through a winter…

I've been a Denver Broncos fan for a long time. I guess it's because I had met former Broncos wide receiver, Lionel Taylor, back in the late 60s. In 1968, I graduated from the almost unheard of University in New Mexico, NM Highlands University. Highlands had a great athletic program during those days; we were NAIA National Champs (equivalent to NCAA D2 sports) in baseball for 3 consecutive years - 1966-68, and national champs in football in 1966 and 1967.…
