Hey Broncos fans! My name is Kara and as a rookie this year I cannot even put into words what it was like to take the field for the very first time, but I am going to try to give you a little taste. From the minute I approached the stadium there was a whole new energy that filled the air and you could just feel that it was game day in Broncos Country. Knowing that this was going to be a day of many firsts for me as a DBC, I couldn’t help but smile all day. I felt like a small child in a candy store, wide-eyed and full of energy!
Much like finals night at auditions, I felt a mix of nerves and excitement throughout the entire day. However, I must say that the excitement outweighed the nerves this time, in that I absolutely couldn’t wait to take the field. I was also quite emotional throughout the day and during the game. I caught myself tearing up a few times throughout the night, one time in particular being in the last two minutes of the game. As the time clock was winding down, my line captain and fourth year veteran, Jess, looked over to me and told me to “take it all in”. It couldn’t have been better advice as I looked into the stands with the lights shining on all of the orange and blue and I knew that I would never have that special moment again. It was simply amazing and I will never forget that first game!
The second game against the Seahawks was just as, if not more exciting! It was this game that I was in awe of YOU, the Broncos fans. Your enthusiasm and loyalty is astounding, and it is your energy that makes it that much more fun for us DBC to be out there on the field. I was also in awe of the players during this game. Not to make you all jealous, but I must say we have the best seat in the house! Being the huge football fan that I am, it doesn’t get much better than seeing the plays as up close as we do and actually hearing the hard hits!
Well Broncos Country, with two home pre-season wins on record, we’re now gearing up to cheer the Broncos on to a victory at the regular season home opener on Monday September 12th. I hope you are all just as excited as we are and will be there cheering on the best team in the NFL for what will sure be a night to remember. Let’s Go Broncos!!!
