I am a lifelong Broncos fan. Growing up in Southwest Kansas was not easy when the Broncos would get smoked in the Super Bowl and Chief fans heckled me. Good thing that Denver won before I left so I could rub it in! I got to Colorado in 1998 and moved to New Mexico in 2005.

I am now in New Mexico living with my wife and kids. Being in Albuquerque brings more challenges since I have to contend with Cowboy and fader fans. While my Broncos take the top billing, I root for the Rockies in baseball (2007 NL Champs), Phoenix Suns in basketball, Avalanche in hockey. Since I went to neither school, I root for Kansas (2008 National Champs and 2008 Orange Bowl Champs) and Kansas State.

When I am not following my teams, I like to get out to hunt and fish. There is nothing like bringing home dinner after an outdoor adventure.

A Fan Of...

  • MLB Colorado Rockies
  • NBA Phoenix Suns
  • NFL Denver Broncos
  • NCAAF Kansas St. Wildcats
  • NCAAB Kansas Jayhawks
  • NHL Colorado Avalanche
  • Soccer soccer sucks!
