Cleveland is a middle-aged guy who has a few beers every weekend and waxes nostalgic about his glory days. He's been disappointed a lot, most notably by his favorite teams. He can be a little rough around the edges, but he also cleans up nice. He can be very blunt and honest, but when he's behind you, you have a friend for life.

The ubiquitous Denver Goober:

- Wears his Tim Tebow jersey on Sunday mornings. To church.
- Drives the family SUV to their oversized home to watch the game.
- Watches the Bronocos lose, again, and vows to spend next Sunday skiing instead.
- Wakes up Monday to head to his white collar job. Wearing jeans.

I suppose it depends on where in Denver. My neighborhood is devoid of any real bronco logos on clothing as most of the people here are from somewhere else. Church attendance is anything but a priority unless it's some sort of relgious holiday.. Most people in the area place emphasis on fashion and trend. Wearing jeans means Diesel, Hugo Boss, or other high end designer. People in the area walk every where on weekends to their favorite brunch spots..hit the farmers market ect..There are bike kiosks throughout the neighborhood.. almost all bikes are in continuous use. The typical car is a Porsche SUV or Range Rover, or BMW with every conceivable roof mounted rack option affixed. The whole Foods has valet parking, people talk about their latest mantra given to them by a spiritual advisor..Many people's jobs are located in other cities so they are frequently out of town. Heading to a second home in the resort mountain towns is common place. Conservative means fiscal not social though the neighborhood leans almost entirely Boulder left socially.

does that stand for what I think it does? if so, that's how I would describe Nevada as a whole.

IMO Denver is like the quiet semi-hot girl with no personality.

Though that sounds like quite the neighborhood, it's safe to say that most people in Denver aren't riding around in Porsche Cayenne's and Range Rovers. I'm afraid you're missing out on the true joys of Denver Goober living.

I like what George Carlin said best-

LA is a little woman saying "**** me"

NY is a big man saying "**** you"!

My hunch is that most people in your neighborhood probably aren't even from Colorado, and thus the paucity of Broncos gear.

For the record, I was referring to most of the Denver suburbs and the more modest parts of the city.
I believe Scott was talking about Cherry Creek.
