How was your Father’s Day?

Last month, MHR Editor Tim Lynch asked all of us why we are Broncos fans. This was my reply:

Jess Place: In 1983, my family moved from Cripple Creek to the Denver suburbs. As part of our relocation, my father took us on a driving tour of the city. Being just four years-old, I only remember one thing from that drive-our stop at old Mile High Stadium. "This is where the Broncos play," my dad said proudly. My dad moved to Denver in the mid-seventies and immediately adopted the Denver Broncos as his own. For him, it was an exciting time to be a Broncos fan. They were finally experiencing success and had gone to a Super Bowl. Make no mistake, ours was a Broncos household. For me, there was no choice. I was brought up spending Sundays in front of the television for Broncos football. The playoff runs of the 1980's and Super Bowl failures only solidified my standing as a lifelong fan. When it comes to the Denver Broncos, there's nobody I'd rather watch a game with than my dad... the man who introduced me to the Denver Broncos.

With Father’s Day being Sunday, I thought it might be fun to see some pictures of Broncos fans and their dads. I’m lucky enough to have enjoyed many games with my dad an am proud to share my pictures. You got any? Drop ‘em in the comments.
