Fans share their Denver Broncos fan origin stories

Hope everyone is having a great Labor Day weekend in Broncos country. Covering our morning news story today for Jess who is vacationing in an exotic location (Massachusetts) and I thought why not talk about our Denver Broncos fan origin stories.

Mine started in early January 1987. I was in second grade and living in Pagosa Springs, Colorado at the time. There was a big adult party at my house and I remember that I didn’t care about the football game. I spent most of the day playing outside as I usually did. However, children tend to sense the tension in the room. The tension was high when I finished playing outside as I walked through the living room. The curse and the disappointment.

So I sat back and watched John Elway drive the Broncos 98 yards to that incredible touchdown to tie the game against the Cleveland Browns. My parents weren’t Broncos fans, but everyone else there obviously was. The elation and joy that everyone was feeling caught up with me. I was hooked.

My family moved to northern California later that year, but it didn’t matter. This Broncomane in me was already alive and breathing orange and blue.
