Congratulations Broncos fans, you’ve done it again. Your spirit, loyalty and passion for the orange and blue never fails to amaze, and last week’s Mile High Salute to Fans Tour was no exception. I was honored to participate in our Inaugural Salute to Fans Tour (presented by, US Bank) along with several of my fellow cheerleaders, Broncos players, and Miles the Mascot. Together we spent 6-days in the heart of Broncos Country, traveling over 1400 miles and stopping in 20 different Colorado cities. It was an epic experience visiting with thousands of Broncos faithfuls from the mountains to the prairies, and by the end we all came to the same conclusion: Broncos fans are the best in the NFL. Here are 10 reasons why:
10. Record Crowds – Not only has every “non-strike” home game been sold out since 1970, you continue to break your own attendance records at scrimmages, pep-rally events, the cheerleaders’ Calendar Release party and yes, even small town autographs signings on caravan and our inaugural Salute to Fans Tour. The autograph line was wrapped around the block in several locations last week, Delta, CO wins the award for longest line. We love your enthusiasm!
9. You start ‘em young – Most of us would agree that children and babies dressed to the nines in orange and blue are cute enough to steal your heart. We would also agree that they are off the to right start in life by learning from a young age what a stellar football organization looks like in the Broncos. In Las Animas, Colorado, we met a gym full of students who wrote essays on “Why I want to meet the Denver Broncos.” When asked what the subject of their essay was, most of them said sportsmanship and their absolute love for the home team. These young Broncos fans clearly have bright futures ahead of them.
