Well it wasn't actually their Mile High Stadium locker-room it was at the training facility, ::scratching head - now this is a LONG story:: but here's the abbreviated version -
In 2000 I was on my FIRST US trip, which I had planned as my only US trip, and after 9 weeks I planned to do "something" different to get some attention in Denver . . . So I got my hair bleached, coloured platinum white, coloured blue and after one more treatment I had BRONCO BLUE HAIR!!
So when I turned up at the training facility, as a Bronco fan, from Australia, WITH blue hair, the people there took notice and I was given the name of a guy who worked with the team!
This guy (who shall remain nameless) was reasonably impressed when I told him all the games I saw on THAT tour he offered to get me on the field before the game! I've kept in contact with him, randomly, ever since, and when I turned up this year, he was more than happy to give me another tour of the Training Facility!
Probably my best idea ever - they get a lot of Bronco fans at the facility, and even a few foreign Bronco fans, but an Australian with BRONCO BLUE hair . . . REALLY sticks out and is remembered by everyone!! (Think I have some photos somewhere...)
