The Broncos season has certainly come to a close, however football season is well on its way to the game football fans anticipate year-round. Super Bowl XLII in Arizona is just around the corner and the contenders are being decided as we speak.
Oddly enough, my father played in the Super Bowl almost 40 years ago with the Minnesota Vikings against the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl IV. (Check out the ring and ticket: http://www.nfl.com/superbowl/history/ringandticket/sbiv.) Unfortunately the Vikings suffered a loss that day, but that doesn’t change the fact that my father is a part of Super Bowl history — and that is a beautiful thing!
When the Denver Broncos Cheerleaders traveled to Canton, Ohio to celebrate John Elway’s induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2004, I walked wide-eyed through a facility where football fans could spend hours. Athleticism, integrity and legacy are all under one roof. I could smell the passion, the fire, and the hits. The trophy case that holds every Super Bowl ring in existence gives prestige to the sport. That was a great day.
