He should be in the Ring of Fame. Or there should be a statue. Something.

During our second Superbowl season in 98 I went to SD for the game vs the Chargers and he was there. He signed a football for me, at a hot dog from my grill, and played catch with me for a bit. He was the greatest Bronco fan in history! no one will surpass him.

He was a cool. A legend. We had the honor of driving his barrel in of1 to the Broncos tailgate in texas geeze 10+ years ago. We marinaded a turkey with him and heard some crazy old stories about him and hat man Jay back in the day at the tailgate.

Rip bman.

I went to a game several years ago with Doc B. My wife took a picture of the two of us with Barrel Man. Unfortunately she didnít get any of his barrel in the picture so it looks like we have our arms around an old naked homeless guy. Funny as hell and one of my favorite pictures.

The man, the myth, the barrel. The guy was great. Many years ago I bought out someone's season tickets in the north endzone, and often that is where the barrel man and his wife were sitting. He was super friendly and never said no to anyone for a picture.
