ALERT: DeMaryius Thomas and Eric Decker call themselves 'Black and Decker'

Doug Pensinger

From Rick Reilly and ESPN (via Kissing Suzy Kolber):

There's been a lot to talk about. How [Demaryius] Thomas went from 32 catches for 551 yards with Tebow (and Kyle Orton) at QB last year to 94 catches for 1,434 yards with Manning this year. How thrilled he is to finally make it through a regular season without getting hurt (he says it's the praying). And how a white teammate from the far north, Eric Decker, has become best friend to a black kid from Georgia. ("Black and Decker," they like to call themselves.)

And..... Yep, we just had to note that here, because that's officially the best nickname in the league and sways the rootability pendulum heavily in the Bronco's favor from here on out. Not since Black Hammer and White Lightning has a sports duo had a better nickname.

Hail Peyton, God bless Von Miller and his tattoo, and long live Black and Decker.
