Tim Tebow Comes To Town and Bronco Fans Are Dipped in Magic Waters

My 'lil bro wrote the following rewrite of the speech from Field of Dreams.  Addressed to John Elway, the man who brought us all the joy of two Super Bowl wins.............erasing all those losses.

To really appreciate it, you have to hear the original....

JOHN……… people will come.

They'll come back to Denver for reasons they can't even fathom.

They'll turn off I-25 not knowing for sure why they’re doing it.

They'll arrive at a parking lot where their stadium once stood.

As innocent as children……… LONGING for the past.

“Of course we won't mind if you look around awhile. It's only fifty dollars……there’s a new stadium right over there.”

And they'll pass over the money without even thinking about it. For its money they have, and PEACE they lack.

They'll walk into the new stadium and sit in their short sleeves on a perfect fall afternoon,
And they'll find they have reserved seats in the SOUTH STANDS. Where they sat when they were children, and cheered for YOU, JOHN their hero.

And they'll watch the NEW KID play………..

And it'll be as if they dipped themselves in MAGIC waters.

The memories will be so thick they'll have to brush them away from their faces.

People will come JOHN……………

The one constant over all the years in this town has been…….. The BRONCOS.

The people of this town have been ruled by it like an army of steamrollers.

The BRONCOS have been erased like a blackboard rebuilt and erased again.

But the BRONCOS have marked the TIME in this TOWN.

This field………. This game……….. its part of our PAST, JOHN.

It reminds us, of all that was once GOOD……….. and could be again.

Ohhhhh……… PEOPLE WILL COME JOHN.
