Predominantly Orange Friday

Our governor and the mayor of Denver declared today Orange Friday! As I searched my closet, I was dismayed to find no real orange that was suitable. I have a few orange shirts in my summer stuff, but nothing that I could find that was really orange. I had the same problem with my daughter, and though my son has a few Broncos things, he only has one that fits him right now, and I have to get that clean for Sunday. So, we decided to go with Predominantly Orange.

What is Predominantly Orange? Glad you asked. Back up a decade or so to the reinventing of the football uniform. I would guess just about every franchise decided to update their look. As they talked about updating our beloved Broncos, those of us with orange blood in our veins were concerned. If they are going for fashionable, would they keep the orange? We were assured that the uniforms would be predominantly orange.

Now, take a look at our jerseys. I give you a glimpse! Lest you wonder...lest you imagine Inigo Montoya from the Princess Bride saying "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means. " Let me assure you that webster.com stated the definition of predominantly as "for the most part : MAINLY" Now the spin agent in charge of making us happy will never live this down. I saw "Predominantly orange" stated in the paper at least 2 times just today.

So, because of lack of orange, my kids and I dressed in predominantly orange today. I do think I'll have to shop for a Broncos shirt tomorrow. Roger thinks he'll wait until he can get one saying Super Bowl XL, but I really want a generic one that I can wear for more than just this year. Even though Blue...uh...predominantly orange is my favorite color, I do want one with a little more of the traditional orange. We'll see if I can find it.

I want the XL shirt and I figure that when the Broncos go to the Super Bowl, HDTVs will be really cheap on February 6th. Oh, and I greatly prefer the happy wife... :)

Well, according to the headline article in today's Denver Post, we are a predominantly a Christian nation. Perhaps somebody redefined the term and forgot to notify Webster. Sort of like awful changing from "full of awe" to its current meaning.
