Our society has become so obsessed with beauty and buying products in order to ensure that beauty, we almost forget that imperfection exists all around us.

The Golden Years

There are certain stadiums throughout the U.S. whose culture is so intertwined with the name that changing that name seems almost sacrilegious. For example, can you imagine Wrigley or Soldier Field being called anything but?

Mile High Stadium in Denver, Colorado is no different. It’s a great name that works on multiple levels, making it one of the best-named stadiums in America.

But after years of being referred to as Mile High, The Broncos home base will now be called “Empower Field” which might not sound so dumb if it wasn’t named after a retirement home.

Look, I get it. The Broncos have sucked ever since Payton Manning left and maybe the entire team SHOULD retire, but HOW this new name got approved is beyond me.

Here are the depressing details.
