This story is sponsored by Starbucks Coffee, presented by Quaker Oatmeal and Quizno's Deli and brought to you by the KFC Double Down (none of these companies have actually sponsored this post).

Starting in 2010, the Cinch Jeans Rocky Mountain Showdown is returning to Invesco Field at Mile High for 10 years. This year's matchup takes place on Sept. 4 with kickoff set for 12 noon MDT.

Joining Cinch Jeans is Dr Pepper, which is returning as a presenting sponsor of the 2010 event, along with another hometown company, Ultimate Electronics, which will be the second presenting sponsor of the game.

"It's time to cinch it up a little bit," he said this morning during a phone interview with the Camera.
