Here's 9NEWS Denver's Drew Soicher with maybe not the best lead-in to today's sports report: an Alzheimer's joke.
In Soicher's defense, the story immediately preceding this report was about research into a cure for Alzheimer's disease. And the story Soicher was introing was about Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas leaving camp to attend the funeral of his grandmother, who died from complications related to Alzheimer's. Add that to Broncos owner Pat Bowlen stepping down yesterday because of his battle with Alzheimer's disease, and that is an awful lot of talk about Alzheimer's.
Much like Soicher, we are sick of this week and wish it would end.
Update: Soicher apologized.
It wasn't written as a joke.
I apologize to anybody who was offended.
Here's the real and entire segment.
