Born in Denver, and raised a Broncos fan - lived in Westminster from when I was about 4 years old, until 18, when I moved out.... For the first time, anyway.... The image for my icon was free-hand spray painted by me (my third time EVER trying to draw the new Bronco head, and have still only painted it that one time) on a cloth canvas that we hung up to keep the neighbor kids from messing with my dog. Anyway, on to a little about me. In Oct. of 2006, the gas station on Hampden and Federal, which was an Amoco, then a bp, then (still?) Conoco... I was the manager and was meeting and exceeding all expected goals, and my staff and I were continually ignored and uncared about by the new ownership. Long story short - October was when I had the last straw and couldn't find a job that paid enough to what I was currently making, so I moved out to Wichita, KS (oye!) and have been here ever since... It has made me embellish my Bronco-ness at every turn even more, because living with them so close (when I was truly home, in Denver/ SOMEWHERE near the mountains) and having the notion that most the people you run into are going to be Bronco fans (relatively, compared to Chiefs/Cowboys territory out here), so every time I think Broncos, not only is it the preternatural feeling I get from my love of the game and Our team, but it brings me to feeling closer to home... I can more easily pretend I am in some humid cluster of a mid-mountain valley, at home in Colorado, it's just that the mountains are invisible, right? If I was wealthy, I imagine I would literally, live - that is, eat, sleep, and breathe Broncos (and Pearl Jam ; ) and other classic rock) - and be at EVERY game, every year, home and away, AND record every game for my own personal casual viewing. I used to VHS every game, timely pausing and unpausing after and before every play and highlights, respectively... Still catching up with affording technology in the digital age to be able to get back to being able to do my own film review and such, like I'd like... of for posterity, or offseason recreation, or various other reasons... but such is life. Be passionate when you get the opportunity, for one cannot always afford the opportunity to voice one's passions.
