The 16 best reactions to KKTV dropping the Broncos game

Posted By on Mon, Jan 20, 2014 at 10:35 AM

Midway through the first quarter of yesterday's AFC Championship Game — which saw the Denver Broncos defeat the New England Patriots 26-16, sending Denver to its seventh Super Bowl —  KKTV's signal froze for about five minutes. Not only were hundreds of thousands of people forced to stare at Tom Brady, but the Broncos were driving (and eventually kicked a field goal to open the scoring).

"There's probably 30 computers that are all online that make the signal get to the airwaves," explained general manager Nick Matesi to the Gazette. "One of them crashed and there was no way to go around it."

This sent people, including yours truly, into paroxysms of panic, which KKTV tried to soothe with a Facebook post. Naturally, this just gave everybody a place to freak out, and what follows are some of our favorites from among the 320 comments.
