Welcome to today’s edition of Caption This. Rather than shy aware from the one topic on everyone’s mind over the next 24 hours, I’ve decided (foolishly?) to tack directly into the political winds.
That’s a photo of the now infamous “McCain is a Raiders Fan” sign that flew around Denver’s Invesco Field an hour or two before the Broncos’ game against the Dolphins yesterday. Those blurry folks in the background are fans beginning to take their seats in the upper deck.
Feel free to supply a caption in the comments section. I will post some selections tonight. Remember, clever > partisan bickering.
