The infectious Broncos’ vibe across Colorado has made almost as much history as our favored men in orange and blue.

And, of course, the energy has spilled into Northwest Colorado.

No matter where you go in Craig, the Broncos’ spirit is alive, and our quaint and vibrant town is pumped for the game Sunday.

Yard for yard, throw for throw, tackle for tackle — we will be watching our beloved Broncos kick some Seahawk butt!

The Super Bowl is an awesome time for friends and family to get together, eat good food, drink beer and cheer for their home team. It’s also a time for Colorado to be on the world stage, showing people across the globe that our beautiful state not only has a great football team but dedicated fans.

Peyton Manning helped his teammates capture the AFC championship, and we know he’ll lead them down the same path Sunday. One thing that’s different about Manning compared to other NFL quarterbacks is that he portrays himself as a good, down-to-earth and humble guy.

He has a good heart, which reveals the true spirit of Colorado that we want to promote.

Unlike some professional football players, Manning doesn’t engage in talking smack about other teams. Instead, he highlights the strengths and weaknesses present on his home turf.

That’s the spirit we’d like Craig residents to capture as the weekend progresses. Be kind, smart and thoughtful — just like our football hero Manning.

Even if you’re not a Broncos fan, this still is an exciting time for Colorado. It’s also an excellent time to dust off the winter blues.

We’d like to graciously remind everyone to be safe, don’t drink and drive — it’s never worth it — and have fun.

It’s been 15 years since we’ve made Super Bowl headlines, and the Craig Daily Press Editorial Board would like to publicly support our Broncos and encourage everyone to be smart and tenacious like our home team.

Omaha, Omaha, Omaha!
