Sat down last Monday on a flight from Baltimore to Denver. The flight attendant stood before us to offer safety instructions, but first he wanted to offer comfort to Broncos fans. I think you’ll remember the Broncos suffered through utter devastation recently at the hands of the Seattle Seahawks.
“We are going to observe a moment of silence for Broncos fans,” the flight attendant said. “And we’re going to lower the lights during that moment of silence.”
I thought he was kidding about lowering the lights.
A few seconds after the flight attendant’s announcement, the cabin went dark.
And the only sound was laughter.
