One of the staples of Old Mile High Stadium is Bucky.

When Mr. Bowlen and the Broncos moved him over to the new Mile High, I along with all of Broncos Country should have been grateful.

Every time I drive by the stadium or go to a game, it’s a symbol of pride.

It takes me back to when I was a kid, saw the statue and I thought how cool it was.

I’m one who thinks the atmosphere hasn’t been the same since the Broncos moved to the new stadium.

I get that the organization moved over for the suites and extra money, but it came at a price.

I’m thankful the Broncos brought Bucky with them.

Hopefully, eventually, the environment in the South Stands comes back.

But at least we got Bucky to look over Broncos Country and the Broncos.
