Good bye and RIP Barrelman


Just received some sad news from the Denver Post....

Tim McKernan, known to legions of Denver Broncos fans and televsion viewers as the Barrel Man, died early today, relatives said.

McKernan had been suffering from terminal lung disease.

For more than 30 seasons, McKernan appeared at Broncos games clad in a barrel and a cowboy hat.

McKernan retired in 2007 at the age of 67. He donated the barrel he wore in his last game to the Broncos' charities.

His first barrel, modeled after an Orange Crush bottle, was on exhibit in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

There are no words to say that could properly describe Barrelman.  May he rest in peace and God give comfort to his family.

 

 

Thank you, Tim!
