Super Bowl 50 is approaching quickly, and you don’t want to be the person at the party who eats way more guacamole than socially accepted. So if you’re unsure how you feel about the Denver Broncos, here are five reasons to love or hate them.

Five reasons to love or hate the Carolina Panthers

Love: Old Peyton Manning Can Go Out On Top

This is probably Peyton Manning’s last game. It would be pretty cool if he went out on top, much like his boss John Elway.

Hate: Old Peyton Manning

Although the story would be great, have you seen Manning throw a football recently? It doesn’t exactly conjure memories of his prime.

Love: The Broncos Beat The Patriots

Nobody likes the Patriots.

Hate: Tim Tebow

If you’re still not over all the Tebow hysteria, we don’t blame you. The Broncos are still kind of responsible for letting that happen.

Love: Legal Marijuana

Don’t overthink it.

Hate: Shirtless Man Wearing A Barrel

​Who wants to sit next to this guy during a game?

Love: Shirtless Man Wearing A Barrel

Counterpoint: Team spirit!

Hate: The Altitude

Have you ever walked up four flights of stairs and found yourself slightly out of breath? Denver is like that all the time.

Love: Monkey Riding A Dog

This one kind of explains itself.

Hate: The Insurance Company Jingle

You know the one. If the Broncos win, prepare to sing nothing else for the rest of the year.
