The sense of community when it comes to the Denver Broncos is magical.

Regardless of walk of life, where you come from, what you believe, what you do ... it does not matter. The only rule to join this special collection of people is a love of the Broncos.

The latest example of that is Ana Cabrera.

You may have heard of the CNN anchor, but most were surprised to hear she’s also a huge fan of the Broncos. On the latest MHR Radio Podcast, Adam Malnati and I were fortunate to have Ana as a guest.

The origins of Ana’s love for the Broncos is one all fans can connect with. As she told Adam and me, she doesn’t remember a time in her life when she wasn’t a fan of the franchise. She told us some of the best memories of her childhood growing up in Denver were the Sundays spent with nachos and pizza watching John Elway and the Broncos.

Ana also told us what she thinks is the current state of the team, the biggest question mark heading into the season, and she even gave us a prediction. Perhaps it’s her orange and blue googles, but Ana told us the Broncos would finish with a winning record of at least 9-7. Whether that means Denver heads to the playoffs or wins the AFC Division, time will tell. Once the season starts, we hope to have Ana back on the podcast to see how her prediction is holding up.

The sense of community in this fanbase is magical. Ana’s story and love of the Broncos adds to that sentiment.
