Some of my most cherished memories as a kid was going to Mile High with my dad, two hours before the game to hang out on the sidelines and watch the Broncos stretch and warmup. We'd see Johnny and Kubiak throwing, the three amigo's catching, and Meckelnburg and Smith doing drills to loosen up. It was my heaven...to watch my heroes just a few feet away, knowing that the orange and blue would win another one for us, the fans.
There is a certain closeness that sets Mile High apart. The garden in Boston had the same aura. The fans are so close to the field that opposing quarterback's couldn't hear themselves think. Rarely did you see a person polluting the stands by wearing an opposing jersey. If you did wear a Raider's or Chief's jersey, you lost your shirt because some bronco fanatic would tear it right off(true story). It was such a family atmosphere because everyone had one team, one objective. That of course was to see our Broncos win, and indeed they did.(Best home field in the NFL)
I hate to see Mile High go. So many memories, so many great games. The "fumble", the houston playoff game, the chief and raider games, elway taking a lap around the field with the trophy at his last game at Mile High against the jets in the AFC Championship. But it is time to get a new stadium and I just hope it can come somewhat close to the greatness of Mile High. It may be more spacious, may have more comfortable seats(Mile High has the worst seats in the NFL), may have more luxury boxes. But it will never compare to Bronco Heaven, the meca for all donkey fans.
