John Elway Speaks Truth in Colorado

For those of you old enough to remember Super Bowl hero John Elway of the Denver Broncos, you may remember that he spoke very little after the games.

Unlike his new quarterback, Peyton Manning, TV commercials starring Elway were rare in comparison.

Even more rare were ads with him saying a whole lot.

Again…unlike Peyton, whose voice is probably more recognizable than any other sports star since Mohammad Ali, the voice of Elway was almost never heard.

A few years ago I was at a Trade Show where Elway was signing autographs.

He barely said boo to any of the folks in line and politely smiled and nodded his head as they waded through.

Finally Mr. Elway speaks.

Here’s what he said in this excerpt from todays Weekly Standard Blog.

“Governor Romney is a proven leader with the experience and background to turn around our struggling economy,” Elway said in a statement. “In these tough economic times, we need a president who understands how to get America working again – by standing on the side of taxpayers and small-business owners who do the real job creating. I am endorsing Governor Romney and Congressman Ryan for President and Vice President because I know having the courage to make decisions and tackle challenges is what leads to results and real change. America needs a comeback team – Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are that team.”

Say no more John…you’ve said enough.
