I was insipred by the post I saw earlier in the week that asked Tebow supporters to vote on when they became fans and it got me thinking that I'd love to know who we have here and the how the different perspectives were formed that make us all unique and make MHR the best fan blogsite on the web.
This post will be part 1 in a series of Census Posts. In Part 1, I'd like to know when you consider your baptism to the Broncos to be?

For me, I was born in Denver in early 1977. So I was one for SB12 (Jan 1978) and although I don't remember it, I do remember going to games before Elway and I'm told that I was upset that he was displacing Steve DeBerg!
Technically, I would consider myself a "Elway Fever Years" era Broncos fan, although I am right on the line (1982/1983).
One of the photos my folks have framed and hung up on their wall is a black & white one from Halloween when I was 5. Pirate hat, pirate patch, pirate hook, drawn on mustache, Randy Gradishar jersey. Classic costume of a Denver Pirate. Duh. I wouldn't take that thing off. To this day, when I go to Broncos games, the only jersey I wear is an old polyester home Gradishar jersey. Keepin it real.
Anyhow, please share when you would say you took up residence in Broncos Country.
