Day 2: Broncos Fan Fair


Day two was a hell of a lot better than day one. The head start we got this morning made all the difference.

The kids stood in line for a few autographs and then spent the rest of the day on the field playing and running through the sprinklers.

As I said in my last entry, I don’t like to get beat. Yesterday got to me. We were a lot better prepared today. We got up at 7am, headed out and managed to get a good spot in line beside the grass so the kids could run and relax .

 We got to Invesco Field about 9:20 and it was already starting to fill in with broncomaniacs.

                       Let me tell you Bronco fans are serious about Fan Fair.Spot in Line.JPG

He couldn’t figure out how to use his scanner. Don’t they have a training class or something?

 Once we got through the gates we went back to the North Stands to stand in line the same place we were yesterday.

We were about a hundred people back from where the players were sitting and signing under the canopy.

The first group of players arrived twenty minutes late. This seemed to be a player trend for the day.

Just before we got up to the canopy, a Security Guard asked if we would like him to take a picture of us in front of the autograph table.

                       That was really cool of him. That’s my football in the background.HandMe.JPG

  From there we moved onto the next line. We stayed in this line until they swapped out players and we wound up standing in line for the same players we just got autographs from.

                                      Oh well, time to switch out and try another line.

 Next we headed over to the Alumni autograph line and boy did we get lucky. Two former Broncos were there. Steve Sewell and Mark Jackson. While we were waiting in line Lelo Lang showed up. Wow, three former broncos and cool ones to boot.

                                 Steve Sewell signed first 1985-91 Running Back.

I could probably pass on this next year but Krista is a huge Broncos fan and she lets me attend a lot of other sporting events..aka, baseball games đŸ™‚

              Thanks to Berned for hanging with us and making the day more fun...
