“This was one of the toughest defeats I’ve ever watched, but what a game! And you do learn more from defeat than you do victory,” Hickenlooper said. “Even if you have the best quarterback and the best coach in football, and we do, nobody can be perfect every time out. Our disappointment aside, we are proud of the Denver Broncos and happy to settle our bet with Gov. O’Malley with some of the best lamb chops on earth.”
