haha Bob.. how cute and clever .. and true wit luv.. yes we just heard on ESPN about Peyton and Broncos merging.. feel so bad for Tebow as they probably will release him sources say.. I am very surprised Manning chose Denver .. it definitely wasd business move and money too..but the odds went up as Vegas heard the news.. oh well .. this may be Denver's year after all.. luv.
