Default Hello fellow fans

Hi fellow fans,

I hope my story is not too long nor boring. I'm a UK fan of the Broncos. I've been supporting them since I was 9 years old when the NFl was first shown in the UK. I'm now 36. I was the only kid in school with an Orange (and best) Denver top at the time with a number 7 Elway on it. I started supporting the Broncos, because I loved Elways way of playing. I loved his Hail Mary Bombs and always went for the positive. Everyone else in my school when I was a kid went for the obvious Raiders (*spit*) 49'rs and Bears and Dolphins at the time. I however sat up and watched us lose 3 Superbowls and it killed me like it killed everyone else on here. I also then got the reward like we all did winning.

Tonight I was reminiscing and watching the 98 win again on Youtube and thought I would like to speak with likeminded fans. As I have no one in the Uk to talk about the Broncos to. I have met some people on Facebook in America Broncos fans but not that many.

I've never been to Denver and I'm pretty ashamed about it. I'm planning my trip and will go within the next few years and I hope I will be accepted.

One thing is I know you will know more about players etc as it's harder to know about this stuff in the Uk. It doesn't get any news so please bear with me.

I have been in the house tonight having a few beers watching Broncos vids and I thought I wanted to talk to fellow fans. I have met some before but not enough.

I am glad we have dropped the Tebow Bible freaks as well. Hey, if you are religious that cool, just don't dump it on my football team or tell me.

Apart from that hello. I hope that didn't bore the arse of of everyone! Lol.

Oh, you have some questions to answer.

1) Do you take ambien? If so, do you have side effects? Do you have a basement (I doubt that one in the UK)?
2) GHostbusters, parental monitoring and should babysitters be thrown in jail for showing it?
3) Anti gravity aircraft, you believe?
4) Do you like to backpack and have a backpack buddy but you are totally straight?
5) Myrtle Beach, great vacation spot or where your life will fail if you follow your "love"?

I will let you answer these first before more but I am sure Maners will be coming in to quiz you some more.

1) No never heard of it, we just used to take Acid in the UK I'm a teen of the 90's.
2) Great films
3) No, unless it's orbiting the planet or it's a plane divebombing.
4) I live in Scotland so we like to use backpacks from time to time.
5) Never heard of it, should I living in the UK?
6) No I can't help your ego and your need to feel different, zany, on edge and therefore accepted and fulfilled

Thanks for the link.

Aonaibh Ri Cheile and welcome.
I'm born and raised in the U.S, but my great-grandfather was a Cameron born and bread. When you ever visit downtown Denver we should grab a pint or ten.

That's awesome to see UK fans finding their way as Denver fans over the years. as an American that enjoys some English football I know it seems everyone is a fan of only a few of the high flying clubs so to go against that is respectable.

The Mane is a great place to talk football. It gets a little heated sometimes, and isn't always friendly, but I think there are lot's of good blokes on the Mane! So did the Broncos traveled to London for a game a few yrs back didn't they? Who knows maybe they come out again sometime. Not sure though if NFL even doing that anymore.

What? My neighbors dog talking football with me is something to worry about? By the way he says Duke Ihenacho, our un drafted rookie FA will end up a better player then either Moore or Carter. Also he said eating poop not as bad as we think.

I think we talked about the NFL sending the Rams over there for the next 3 years. We don't play the NFC West until next year or the year after so it couldn't be until then. Not sure if theyd send Peyton over there or not.

Oh and welcome home to the OM. Stay away from one name (and one crime fighting trucker) and you'll do fine

I wouldn't assume that. I can see why you would but there are some pretty stupid comments that get thrown around.

Either way, welcome. I hope you enjoy your time here.

Yeah, Castle. Some of our best, most knowledgeable posters aren't posting from the continental US. Eddie Mac lives in Ireland and is one of our capalogists.

Take your man Kaylore here. He's from Mars, so he can answer any of your questions about implants.
