Hi Broncos fans! Hope everyone is getting back from a wonderful and safe Labor Day weekend with friends, family, and fellow Broncos fans! I enjoyed my Broncos filled weekend with cheerleader appearances at both the Colorado State Fair in Pueblo and Taste of Colorado here in Denver.
My name is Margaret Foy and I am enjoying my second year as a Denver Broncos Cheerleader. The new opportunities this season has offered me so far have taken me across the state of Colorado to meet Broncos fans. I had the honor of representing our Denver Broncos as one of the cheerleaders on our Broncos Caravan Tour in June. Pueblo was one of our stops on the tour, I thought I had an idea of what to expect from our fans there but after the weekend at the State Fair – Man did I underestimate! The response we received in Pueblo while debuting our 2011 calendar was overwhelming! Everyone was so excited and supportive and it was a great reminder that some of our biggest fans are in Pueblo! We rode in the parade with our Junior Denver Broncos Cheerleaders and saw lots of orange and blue lining the streets of Pueblo.
Our Junior Denver Broncos Cheerleaders did a great job cheering, dancing, and getting Southern Colorado geared up for football season! When I returned to Denver for the Taste of Colorado Festival, I loved seeing so many people sporting their Broncos gear at Civic Center Park. From spending the weekend with Broncos fans I can report one thing….Broncos Country is back to football, painting the state orange and blue for the Monday night home opener!
To open the 2011 season, Denver will host the nationally televised Monday Night Football matchup against the rivaled Oakland Raiders! Notoriously, teams showcase their promising draft talent and team potential, and we know how exciting that will be in our house. Kyle Orton and our starting lineup are looking great and how rousing has Von Miller’s preseason performance been? The big game is less than a week away Broncos Country and I have to ask….are you ready for some football?!?
I did some research on just how special Monday night’s spotlight is so we can continue gearing up for football. I’m sure a lot of you know that Monday Night Football is one of the longest running and highest-rated prime time television series’ ever. But did you also know:
So this is BIG Broncos Country and we need to represent!
Now, knowing all this about the coveted Monday Night Football coverage and that Denver and Oakland have been matched up 15 times as a Monday night pairing! 15 times, Broncos fans! Obviously this is an exciting matchup, and many of these previous games were decided by seven points or less. From cheering on the sidelines last season, one thing I know that makes a huge difference in close games is the energy created within the stadium and city leading up to the game.
So Broncos Country, let’s be sure to paint the state orange and blue for MNF’s big matchup. Guys, put on your Broncos jerseys, hats, throwback T-shirts, and ties for work this week. Ladies get football ready in that awesome NFL line at Victoria’s Secret’s. Fans – get out in Denver this week to warn those Raiders fans that they will be in our house Monday night and that we are ready for some Monday Night Football! GO BRONCOS!
