I know, I know. Who would have thought? Especially all of those crazy Denver Broncos fans who thought that absolutely, without a doubt, God was a die-hard Orange-and-Blue wearing deity, most probably placing a few bets on the good ol’ Mile High Players (she would have the inside track after all, right?).
