Truth is stranger than reality.
Just two weeks after learning that Denver’s bumbling center, JaVale McGee has designs on starring in the world of reality television (along with his smothering mother Pam), we discover that Broncos wide out Eric Decker has a deal to appear in a program of his own, along with his lovely wife Yoko.
Actually, her name is Jessica James and she’s reportedly some kind of musician. Although, like the original Yoko, she’s more well known for her man than she is for her compositions.
According to Big Lead Sports, this car wreck of a disaster of a television show is going to be part of the “Love and Other Contact Sports” franchise on the E! Network.
John Elway must be thrilled. The Broncos have a two-year window during which to cash in on the “Manning Era” and one of the key cogs in the success of the offense is going to be distracted by the filming of this televised abortion. It’s not as though Decker has extra IQ points banging around in his head that he can spare, either. Decker’s barely got the bandwidth to pay attention.
As thrilling as it is that Denver’s become the center of the sports themed reality TV universe, our teams would doubtlessly be better off without all this. Isn’t that why Tim Tebow is gone?
