Hey Denver Fans! How ‘bout that Broncos win on Sunday? I don’t know about all of you, but my Monday always seems a little better after a great win! Congratulations to John Fox on his FIRST Broncos win! Let’s keep ‘em coming!
My name is Heather and this is my 2nd season as a Denver Broncos Cheerleader. As a rookie cheerleader last year, I experienced many firsts including: performing for the first time on an NFL field, shooting a cheerleader calendar, performing for 76,000 fans, hosting a Broncos post-game show, radio interviews, traveling to Iraq to perform for our service men and woman, and the list goes on and on!
Coming back as a “veteran” this season, I was not expecting to have many more firsts. Boy was I wrong! The 2011-2012 season is just beginning and so far I have been apart of several history making firsts!
• Being the FIRST to perform in the newly named Sports Authority Field at Mile High. Like many die hard Broncos fans, I too had a hard time adjusting to the sound of the new stadium name as well as the new logo. However, two games into the season and it seems to me as though it has always been Sports Authority Field at Mile High and who can even notice the red logo when the stadium is packed with 76,000 fans oozing blue and orange!
• For me, it was also my FIRST Monday Night Football game! Not only was it MNF, Broncos vs. the Raiders, but it was opening night! What a perfect opening night scenario. Along with the game, it was also the 10th year anniversary tribute for 9/11 and one of the most moving tributes I have ever been apart of. I can easily say that this game has been my most memorable game of all time!
• Shannon Sharpe’s Hall of Fame presentation. What a once in a lifetime experience to be a part of. As a true Broncos fan and a Denver native, I have grown up watching Shannon Sharpe. He is a legend in Broncos Country and it was so truly inspirational to see him presented with his ring. He certainly deserves this induction and it will be a moment that I will never forget.
I guess what I have learned is that every game is going to bring its own new experience. I feel so grateful to be involved with the Broncos organization, team, and cheerleaders that have given me so many incredible opportunities. We truly have the greatest job in the world!
I look forward to many more firsts with the Broncos, perhaps my first Super Bowl appearance??
For now, I look forward to game 3 and many more W’s to come! LET’S GO BRONCOS!!
Have a great week everyone!!
