As the world combats the COVID-19 pandemic, social distancing can be tough for anyone. Here are five Broncos players that would be fun to be isolated with.
What the world is dealing with at this time is something that I would have never imagined to happen. The world is currently combating the spread of the coronavirus, or the COVID-19 if we want to get technical. This has impacted everything that players and fans have to work around. Luckily for the Broncos and the rest of the NFL, they can still conduct business for the time being.
However, it is not fun for everyone that this pandemic has us all isolated in our homes for the foreseeable future. Not being able to see friends, family, and coworkers can be a bit of an annoyance. I know, I for sure, am not a fan of all this.
But, in a dream scenario, what if we got to choose a favorite professional athlete or celebrity to practice social distancing with? I am sure there are a few of them that come into mind for us all.
I know it would be fun for me to whip up a great meal with the head coach. He must be an excellent chef.
With that said, here are five current Denver Broncos players that I believe fans would like to be stuck in quarantine with.
Activity: Watching Jurassic Park
Broncos Country knows Alexander Johnson as the T-Rex. Because he will eat up the GOATS. So, what better activity to do while stuck in isolation than to watch all the Jurassic Park movies with the up and coming inside linebacker?
I can imagine it going something along the lines of him imitating all the dinosaur noises. Perhaps a game can come about this. But I am certain a movie marathon would be a great way to pass the time.
If you really want to get into it to pass the time, you do not have to limit yourself to just Jurassic Park movies. You can watch any movie that has a dinosaur theme to it. One of my favorite dinosaur movies is called "We're Back." I highly recommend it.
Hearing the Dino roars could end up coming with a few laughs.
Activity: Hanging out in the basement
While Phillip Lindsay has moved out of his parents' house a while ago, what if the isolation took part when he was with his parents at there house and you happened to be there? That could end up becoming a dream scenario.
Imagine hanging out in the basement while getting the chance to know Phillip Lindsay. Having the chance to learn about the game of football through his eyes and being able to know him personally would be a great way to connect.
And you do not need to be confined to the basement. You can go up to the kitchen to whip up some pizza rolls, pizza bagels, and all the fun things that can be a quick bite and bring it back down for some old school entertainment.
Hanging out in your parents basement could be a good way to pass the time.
Activity: Kicking It with the kicker
Who said that social distancing meant you needed to stay indoors? If you were practicing social distancing with Brandon McManus, why not kick the football or perhaps a soccer ball around? Kicking around something with a kicker would be tons of fun.
If you or McManus have a hack-e-sack, then it could turn into one of the most amazing game outdoors that you can come up with. There is no doubt that it could turn into a game of who can kick the hack-e-sack the farthest and through a goal post.
Have the game go like this. The furthest you can kick the hack-e-sack, a soccer ball, and a football and get it into the goal post will be the winner. Although, since Brandon McManus kicks for a living, it might not end up going well in your favor.
Nonetheless, nothing better than kicking it with the Broncos kicker.
Activity: Raising the Chickens on his farm
One of the most interesting things about Von Miller is that he has a degree from Texas A&M in poultry science. Yes, you read that correctly. Miller devotes his spare time to raising chickens. Imagine social distancing with Von Miller as you help raise chickens.
I did not even realize that there was a degree in poultry science. It would be fascinating to learn from someone who has finished with the degree.
That is one thing that is likely to be done while hanging out with Von Miller. I mean, it would be exciting to learn about chickens from Miller's point of view. Who knows, you might learn something new you would have never thought of before regarding the chicken. I have a feeling Von would be a great teacher.
So, prepare yourself to get "cooped up" with Von Miller and his chickens.
Activity: Freestyle Rapping
As someone who does a bit of song writing, (not so much now) it would be fun to be "locked up" with the potential future of the franchise during the social distancing time. Drew Lock showed us during the regular season finale against the Oakland Raiders that he likes to sing along to rap songs.
We saw him rapping along to Young Jeezy's "Put On" song right around the second half kickoff and it turned into a viral sensation. So, if you were to be stuck with Drew Lock, you might be rapping some freestyle verses or along to some famous songs.
If Drew Lock had a studio or you have a studio, then to pass the time, you could release the hottest mixtape featuring the coolest quarterback in recent history. I'm thinking D-Lock could be the quarterback's stage name.
Perhaps being locked up with Drew Lock would not be such a bad thing after all.
