The Broncos enter Super Bowl 50 as the undeniable and understandable underdogs. The Carolina Panthers have rampaged through the NFL this year, losing only once all season.
Yet despite that gaudy record, no one seems to be rushing to anoint them as one of the greatest teams ever, possibly because...

"Chicken parm you taste so good..."
So good, in fact, that Peyton's favorite dish (we have to assume) made the menu for the Denver Broncos' flight to San Jose last Sunday. (Sidenote: Denverites can order their own chicken parm sandwiches through the Uber app on Super Bowl Sunday.)...

When the clock hits zero in Santa Clara—after the legendary Peyton Manning barks his last “Omaha” and tosses his last pass; when the Super Bowl post-game interviews end and The Sheriff leaves the stadium in his suit and tie, likely for the last time as a player—win or lose, let’s capture all we can...
