John Elway Loves His Dead Gay Son – Oops – I Mean Non-Football Playing Son


Contrary to what you might believe, John Elway has no problems with his son Jack quitting football. Nope. Not at all. Zilch. Nada. It’s great, really – the best thing that could have happened to him. Seriously, he’s fine.

Discussing it for the first time since Jack quit the ASU football program on April 6th during spring drills, the legendary Broncos quarterback had this to say:

“As a father, you can’t always expect that your son follows (in your footsteps) and plays. I’m really proud of him. He was a late bloomer in football. I hoped that he was going to keep getting better and better.”

Evidently, the younger Elway was struggling with the game, as illustrated by his low spot on the Sun Devils’ depth chart. Nevertheless, his father loves him, and is relieved that the pressure-packed environment Jack was living in trying to live up to his father’s name is in the past.

“He sounds better. Just talking to him, it’s like the world has been lifted off his shoulders. So I’m happy for him.”

I’m sure Elway is just thrilled with his son’s decision. Yeah, and monkeys might fly out of my butt. Just wait until the former apple of his father’s eye informs John that he is leaving school, moving to New York City to try and make it on Broadway and intends on shacking up with a rough trick named Jim.

You know it’s going to happen. We’ve seen it a million times before, haven’t we? Actually, I’ve never seen it but you can imagine what would be like if it did. Regardless, I’ll tell you one thing – I’m happy I’m not invited to Thanksgiving dinner at the Elway’s house anymore. Not because of this, but because John Elway has terrible table manners. Simply dreadful.
