Hi Broncos Country! My name is Tristan and this is my second year on the team. What a season so far — the Cheerleaders have had such a great time at the home games and at all of the events in the community this season!
I wanted to blog today about Miles. He is a mascot that is near and dear to our hearts. He is hands down the best mascot in the NFL, heck perhaps of all time (and I speak from a purely unbiased view). The Cheerleaders all get very excited when we have events with Miles. We get to ride in the Miles Mobile (a tricked out van that is equipped with a TV, curtains, tinted windows, and painted in Broncos blue and orange) and watch Miles work his magic with the Broncos fans we visit.
Although he doesn’t speak, Miles is a master of nonverbal communication. He can make almost anyone crack a smile. Visiting hospitals with Miles is one of my favorite events. He acts goofy and charming, and fills the rooms with laughter. There is no such thing as “small” in Miles’ playbook — Miles makes his actions grandiose, taking cues from his audience.
Just last week, Miles inadvertently walked into a glass door. Instead of pushing the door open, he started rubbing his nose, looked around, and then proceeded to press his entire body into door, acting as if the door was stuck and that was why he had run into it. We all doubled over in helpless laughter.
Not only does Miles participate in countless community events, he is also at every home game (often with Mini Miles in tow), rallying on the crowd and climbing the massive loud speakers. He also visits schools for Fuel Up To Play 60 and he has “Van Jams” with local musicians in his Miles Mobile.
Needless to say, the Cheerleaders love the Broncos Mascot. Just remember, keep your eyes open — you might be lucky enough to see him in action and maybe even snag an autograph!
Keep cheering our Broncos on!!!
