What Made You a Broncos Fan:  Grew up in a Broncos household.

Favorite part of 2017, so far:  Haha, all I've done is work.  So I'll just go with the future.  Playing in a huge 3 man scramble in my hometown in a week that we've won twice.  Going to a Montana football game in September.  Montana Griz gameday atmosphere supposedly rivals that of big Divison 1 schools and was ranked as a better experience than schools like Florida, Tennessee, and others a few years ago, the atmosphere is top 20 in the nation so I'm excited for that.

Ben,

Still the #1 most odd fav teams from a geographic perspective I've ever seen.

Also, on the food front, there's a restaurant that opened by where i work that is a mexican, vietnamese fusion restaurant.  It's called MexiPho... and it works somehow.  They wanna make it a chain but I can't see that happening.

I've been to a few fusion restaurants. If they have the right idea it really can work, even if it seems arcane. I went a place that was Brazilian BBQ and sushi, still one of my favorite places I've eaten in my entire life.

I know shameless plugs are lame, but my friend and I have been producing a podcast that is fairly Broncos centered (although content has been all over the place in the offseason) for almost 50 episodes. Just dropped our first training camp episode. There are a couple minutes of bachelor that you might have to skip through, lol. We've gotten so much better since we started so it has been a fun thing to do. Check it out if you want some non-denver media people coverage

Hi all,

Before I do the proper introduction I wanted to start off by saying that although I am a Broncos fan. I do follow two NFL teams.  The Denver Broncos and the Indianapolis Colts. 

This is all due to one man, the sheriff himself.

I first got into the NFL back in 2000. Being from the UK there was no obvious team to follow, so I did what most people do to find a team and watched a few games to see if any players or any teams stood out. That's when I discovered Peyton Manning. 

He was and is the greatest player I've seen play. That's just my opinion. I know other QB's have had more success and better playoff success but to me he was the greatest. Hence I became a Colts fan. 

Now of course in his mind he probably thought he'd spend his whole career at Indy and be a one team man. Of course we all know that didn't happen and he moved on to Denver. Thankfully it turned out to be the right move as he continued to show his greatness and win another Super Bowl. (Obviously not his greatest season personally though) During his time in Denver I grew to follow the Broncos as much as the Colts and cheer for both teams every week. 

When he moved to Denver I was split as my favourite player had left the team I had supported for 12 years. I couldn't bring myself to choose so decided to support both the Colts and the Broncos and still do to this day. I have had the pleasure of visiting both Mile High and Lucas Oil Stadiums on trips to America and had the opportunity to meet many great Indy/Denver fans and hope to do the same here.

Just thought I should explain why I follow two teams and hope that this will not cause any issues. As far as I am aware there is no deep seated rivalry between the two teams and hope we can have a good time discussing football and watching the Broncos achieve further success.

(P.S. I do know they play each other on TNF Week 15. It's the only game I remain neutral)

Welcome PFM18. Having been here for over 11 years, I think you will find this forum to be a sanctuary from the drab, dribble and inane refuse that permeates the other fan forums out there. Not to mention the local media. 

As far as myself, I am a life-long Broncos fan and a native Coloradoan. As a proud Italian-American; you will learn that I am as coarse as sandpaper. I am a gun-touting, flag-waving right-winger. I am unabashedly pro-capitalism and I say exactly what I am thinking at all times. I make an ungodly amount of money and drive a BMW. I like blonde girls and was in a frat in college

Welcome aboard. May God have mercy on your soul.
