10 ways to find a Denver Broncos fan at the Super Bowl in New York

January 22, 2014
Going to New York for the Super Bowl? Denver Bronco fans will be easy to spot, says Visit Denver, the trade association that promotes tourism in the Mile High City. Here's how to tell a Denverite from other fans.


1. They’re thin. Denver consistently ranks in top 10 lists for healthy, active and thinnest residents of any major city, and Colorado is the thinnest state.

2. They’re tan. Denver has 300 days of sunshine a year – more hours of annual sun than San Diego or Miami Beach.

3. They have healthy calves from biking. Denver had the nation’s first citywide bike sharing program and currently has more than 800 bikes available at 83 stations throughout the city. There are 850 miles of paved, off-street bike trails in metro Denver.

4. They’re wearing their good jeans. Denver epitomizes urban casual. It is a laid back city where you will see people in jeans at the office… or the opera.

5. They have a return airline ticket in their pocket. Sure, New York is great, but this is powder season, and no Coloradan stays away for long at this time of year.

6. They might order a “growler” in a bar. Denver brews more beer than any other city and has 29 breweries in the downtown area. More than 200 different beers are brewed in Denver every day. (A “growler” is a container used to take away fresh craft beer from a brewpub – something people do regularly in The Mile High City.)

7. They’ll know who James Beard is. Denver’s growing reputation for chef-owned restaurants increased in 2013 when chef Jen Jasinski of Rioja won the James Beard Award for Best Chef Southwest (and followed it up as a finalist on Top Chef Masters). More than a dozen Denver chefs have had the honor of cooking in New York’s James Beard House.

8. They’ll be stopping people on the street to ask, “Which way is West?” From almost anywhere in Denver, you can see the mountains to the west. Denverites will be lost without their mountain panorama, which is 125 miles long and contains more than 200 named peaks.

9. They’re as likely to be at Lincoln Center as MetLife Stadium. As a gold rush town, Denver had a performance of Macbeth before it had a school or a hospital. The Denver Performing Arts Complex is second only to New York’s Lincoln Center, offering ten venues that seat 10,000 people for theatre, opera, symphony and dance.

10. They’re wearing something orange. Denver has seven professional sports teams, more than just about any other city in America. The Broncos have sold out every game for 44 seasons, the second longest sellout streak in NFL history.

This is assuming all Broncos fans are from Denver, or Colorado for that matter. Ive been several times, but not from either and I have 7 pairs of jeans, 6 different growlers at the house and Ive got "healthy calves" from mountain biking and crossfit.

Stupid list. Haha

To be fair, they pulled that off Denver's cheesy marketing campaign. The writer is probably a high school intern.

Half the people they describe probably aren't football fans. They sound like hipster douches, vegetarians, or So Cal kids.

Actually biking doesn't really hit your calves all that hard to be honest. They should have said healthy calves from all of the hiking. Hiking absolutely destroys your calves.
