Sometimes you get what you wish for.
Take Bronco fan Jim Driver, who was not a fan of Peyton Manning, no one knows why, but it is clear he wanted out before Manning sporting the Blue and Orange.
A Denver Broncos fan died on Monday, before he had to see his beloved team sign one of his least favorite players.
According to his obituary in the Columbia Daily Tribune, 78-year-old Jim Driver “wanted out” before he had to see Peyton Manning don a Broncos jersey. This is the lead paragraph from that obit:
James H. “Jim” Driver, 78, of Eagle, Colo., formerly of Columbia, passed away Monday, March 19, 2012, at South Hampton Place in Columbia after a brief illness. An avid Broncos fan, he abhorred Manning and evidently wanted out before a deal was done.
No telling how many Jets fans did the same thing when it became clear the Jets were going to get Tim Tebow.
