The Return of John Elway

For all y’all who have been missing John Elway’s magic touch in football will be glad to hear that he’s coming back. Of course, he’s coming back as a quarterbacks coach for Cherry Creek High School here in the Denver area--largely, it would seem, because it will give him an opportunity to more closely tutor his son, Jack, before the young lad runs off to college.

The Elway family has a legacy of father-son tutoring. John Elway’s father, Jack, taught him the game in California, where he was a coach in the 1970s and ‘80s. He was a Broncos scout until retiring a year before his death in 2001.

The younger Jack Elway hasn’t committed to a college but has taken unofficial trips to Oregon and UCLA. John Elway played in the same conference—the PAC 10—at Stanford.

Good luck to both of them (although I still can’t find it in me to cheer for Cherry Creek--my Overland loving heart just couldn’t bear it).

Read the rest.

Update: Nathan noticed, too.

Overland eh?  I seem to remember me and my Boulder High teams whoopin up on y’all.

I will say that only a victory over Fairview was better than beating those *&(@# from Creek.

One thing I’ve never gotten about Denver is its fascination with John Elway, indeed worship thereof.  Unfortunately, I don’t know the Peace of Landrieu.

I thought this cult had its greatest obsession when the fact that John Elway, already retired from football, receiving a ticket for his dog running loose was a Page 3 story, above the fold, in the Denver Post.

I am not of The Body.
