Small African Village Thrilled To Learn Of Broncos Super Bowl Victory
"Good For Manning. He Deserves It," Say Villagers Wearing New T-Shirts
BUKALEBA, UGANDA – Upon opening the latest batch of T-shirts delivered to them by humanitarian aid workers, residents of the small Ugandan village of Bukaleba expressed pleasant surprise today to discover the “2014 Super Bowl Champion Broncos” graphics emblazoned across the clothing, declaring Denver as the victors of the most recent NFL title game, East African sources confirmed this morning.
“Oh, that is wonderful news. I’m so happy for Peyton Manning. He deserves it,” said Kiiza Okello, whose only source of NFL news is the yearly box of donated championship shirts his village receives from NFL merchandise distributors. “I’ll bet the good people in the American state of Colorado are still celebrating their joyous victory.”
“Okay Musoke. Pay up,” said Kiiza, turning to his friend Alue Musoke, who was wearing a “2012 World Champion San Francisco 49ers” t-shirt. “I told you there was no way the Niners would repeat.”
“Perhaps the Denver Broncos will become a dynasty now, like my favorite team the New England Patriots,” said village doctor Bunyoro Najja. “Several years ago, I was heartbroken to learn that Tom Brady had lost Super Bowls to the St. Louis Rams, the Carolina Panthers, and the Philadelphia Eagles. To suffer defeat in three out of four seasons like that was awful. So you can imagine my joy in 2008 and 2011 when I learned that my beloved Patriots had finally become Champions of the World by beating the New York Giants in two separate Super Bowls.”
While distributing the Broncos victory shirts, Bukaleba residents discussed Denver’s chances to repeat as champions.
“Well, if Manning can stay healthy and they can add some defensive help in the draft, they should be contenders for years to come,” said Kiiza. “Perhaps they can even win four straight Super Bowls like the mighty Buffalo Bills of the 1990’s.
