Called DMI this morning to ask about travel packages, or more specifically to see if they were at a point where they’d consider selling just tickets (answer to that was a clear “no). Was told that interest in the game was “pretty low”, with Dallas, Pittsburgh, and even Detroit (!) being more popular...

Wouldn't be surprised if this stuff happens at many away games.

Anyway, got stuck sitting away from the other guys and among a sea of Broncos fans in the upper deck with my brot...

Love DM, but it's Les Alexander's refusal to ever let his team tank (and therefore never get a lottery pick) that hurts.
