You Are a Die Hard Bronco Fan If….


Since the Broncos didn’t play last Sunday I took the opportunity to reflect back and identify some of the crazy things I have done or that have occurred due to me being a Denver Bronco fanatic.  After the initial list was completed I took it to work and let another Bronco season ticket holder review it.  I hesitated on posting it because I was sure other items would come up that I felt were worthy of being added to the list.  Some Bronco fans have a tendency to be crazy obsessed about our team; if you’re “one of those people”, I would love to see the things you’ve done so go ahead and post them so all of Bronco Nation can enjoy them and rejoice with you.  Non-Bronco fans obviously won’t understand but you know the die hard orange and blue will definitely know exactly where you’re coming from.  Thanks for reading.
Go Broncos – good luck in Miami this weekend!
