Mike Shanahan hasn’t coached in Denver for five years, so the right thing to do is welcome him back to the Mile High and make his eyes burn.

The Denver Broncos have declared Sunday “Orange Sunday” for the game against the Washington Redskins (2:25 p.m. MDT kickoff). That means all fans attending the game should be in orange or else security won’t let you in. Ok, ok, they’ll still let you in, but if you’re not in orange, you’ll hear it from other fans.

In conjunction with Orange Sunday, the fourth annual Orange Ride will take place. Fans are encouraged to ride their bikes to the game. There will be a pre-ride party on Sunday beginning at 10:00 a.m. at the Denver Pavilions (16th and Glenarm), and then there will be a group ride over to Sports Authority Field at noon. If you ride your bike to the game, you will be invited to a pregame tailgate party at Sports Legends Mall (outside on the south end of the stadium) where there will be bike parking, food and drink specials, giveaways, and a band. Riders will also receive a complimentary Orange Ride T-shirt and gift bag.
