Default Sunday is my 48th Season Opener

Started going to Bronco games in 1962 with my parents.

The first game I saw was at was at DU Stadium. It's long gone now. Was just off of I25 & University. I saw the Broncos beat the Chargers there. The Broncos had to play a few games at DU because the Denver Bears baseball team was playing at Bears Stadium which became Mile High Stadium.

My wife is going with me as she wants to see Shannon Sharpe induction into the ring of fame. She has a thing for Sharpe and will have her #84 jersey on.

Is the induction at half time or before the game? I'll be going as well. But not my 48th, not nearly that old.

How dare you start a thread around not bashing McDaniels or calling for Orton to be benched. Damn fly by night fan....

Have a great time at the game, Shannon should be fun to listen to.

Congrats, Floyd! That's incredible.


Wish I had an 84 jersey. I'm not sure why I don't, come to think of it.

Awesom. Have a great time.

He will be inducted into the Hall of Fame in a year or two. If you've never (or even if you have) been there, I highly recommend going. All football fans should go at least once for thier hero. It is something you , and your wife, would never forget.
