What a lovely week of the offseason it is when the top story is about Robert Kraft and prostitution....yikes. That added to the hundreds of mock drafts that all see the Denver Broncos picking different players and different drafting positions makes it a difficult week to know what to talk about. The combine happens later this week and the NFL is at one of it’s quietest points of the entire year and it leaves podcasters scrambling for some kind of relevant material.
Fortunately I have a wonderful inner-circle of Broncos fans who helped me brainstorm an idea that’s more than worthy of a podcast and article. It could perhaps turn out to be the most important thing I have ever done or will ever do for Mile High Report.
We the fans are going to decide the name for the Broncos’ Stadium at Mile High.
Joe Ellis appears not up to the task of selling the naming rights of a stadium that is one of the most iconic in the U.S and sells out 99.9% of Broncos games. It’s also used constantly in the offseason for concerts and other sporting events and for the life of me I can’t imagine why he has been unable to find a taker for what should be a highly sought after sponsorship.
So, it falls to us, my friends. We need to spread the word to all of Broncos Country and determine a name that will at least get Joe Ellis moving in the right direction. Some of the options I already have are top-notch and will undoubtedly get the attention of the big-wigs in Denver.
So, without further adieu ...
Option #1 - Orange Crush Stadium at Mile High
This comes from my bro, Dom, and is so practical and incredible, I don’t know how it hasn’t been the name for the last decades. Pepsi should step in immediately and partner with the Denver Broncos to bring this classy, fitting and awesome name for the stadium.
It makes me thirsty just writing about it.
Option #2 - The Ganja Bowl at Mile High
This one comes from my BFF Eric the Caveman - For better or worse Denver has become well known around the world as a place to get weed. Even in Germany I get asked if I brought any back with me...like that would be a great idea...
Some of the fastest growing companies in the state are marijuana producers and it only makes sense that they would work hand in hand with the Broncos.
Option #3 - Casa Bonita Stadium
This from Broncos & Brats contributor Luke Short - For any Denver locals, this is another obvious solution. Though I doubt there will be diving pools anywhere in the stadium, with the high percentage of Latin Americans in the city, why not go this route? The extremely popular/despised restaurant would be a perfect partner for the team and heck, maybe they can bring their awesome food to the fans on gameday!
Option #4 - Blucifer’s Stable at Mile High
From Claire the not-so-caveman - This is another “inside joke” for those who are from Denver or have travelled there at any time in the past twentyish years. Blucifer is the red eyed demon horse that greets folks outside of the Denver International Airport. No one really knows the significance (except that it’s odd and creepy like the rest of DIA) but since it is very similar to the Broncos’ mascot, it might just be a long-lost cousin who went down a dark path.
It is another fantastic name for a stadium and it’d be perfect to see Blucifer moved up alongside Bucky on the stadium scoreboard.
Those are the four we have so far but we want a few more from you guys before we send it out to all of Broncoscountry for a vote. What would YOU name the stadium? And yes, you are allowed to be boring and just call it Mile High Stadium.
