What Am I? A Championship Magnet? By Khalil Amani

What am I? A championship magnet? I stays in championship cities like shit on stink!

I live in Denver. I’ve been a Denver Broncos fan since moving here in 1996. Shortly after relocating to Denver we won two Super Bowls (1997 & 1998). It was as satisfying as winning the Super Bowl when I was 12 years old living in Miami and we went undefeated (17-0) and won Super bowl VII in 1972.

Championship games seem to follow me wherever I move. From those childhood Miami Dolphins Super Bowls and the Miami Hurricanes win National Championships in the ’80’s—to moving to San Diego and watching the Chargers go to the Super Bowl in 1994 and taking a shellacking by the 49ers—to moving to Omaha, Nebraska in 1994-95 and watching the University of Nebraska Cornhuskers football team win back-to-back National championships—to moving to Denver in 1996 and seeing the Colorado Avalanche win the Stanley Cup in 1996 & 2001 and of course, those two Super Bowl wins in 1997 and 1998. And then, in 2007 I watched the Colorado Rockies go to the World Series where the were swept by the Boston Red Sox.

And then I moved back to Miami in 2012 and watched the Miami Heat win back-to-back World Championships in 2012 & 2013 with Lebron and them and since I’ve moved back to Denver in late 2012, the Broncos are in their second Super Bowl since I’ve been back!

What am I? A championship magnet?

So now it’s Super Bowl 50 and I’m sitting on my couch watching this kid Cam Newton. Indeed, Cam is the future, but Peyton in the present! And lo and behold Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos have pulled off an upset by beating the Carolina Panthers! 24-10. I guess I am a championship magnet!
