This city howled under a full moon Sunday, reveling as its beloved Broncos repeated as world champions, defeating the Atlanta Falcons, 34-19, in Super Bowl XXXIII at Miami. There was also a repeat of the raucous celebrations that trashed the downtown area after last year's win. Even though authorities here had warned for a week that police would immediately move to quash unruliness, fans poured into the LoDo area of Denver's revitalized downtown and broke storefront windows and set fires.
