Broncos Country has no borders

That speaks to how good this franchise has been the last 30 years, the last four or five notwithstanding.

Good morning, Broncos Country!

The following the Denver Broncos have around the globe is remarkable.

One of the biggest contingencies is in Europe, and a significant portion of that is based in Ireland.

That speaks to how good this franchise has been the last 30 years, the last four or five notwithstanding. It also shows their level of commitment, especially when Denver plays in prime time. Though since PFM retired, it hasn’t happened that often.

Over the course of 300 episodes of the MHR Radio Podcast, Adam Malnati and I have been fortunate enough to chat with fans from Ireland on a few occasions. For the 300th episode, we did so with Michael McQuaid who helps run Broncos Europe and the Irish NFL Show.

To hear how he became a fan of the NFL and the Broncos in particular is always entertaining. In Michael’s case, he said it was Denver’s last-second 17-13 win over the New York Jets in November of 2011.

From that point on, he’s been hooked on the orange and blue.

The hope now is the Broncos can return to where we all expect. There maybe disagreement as to how that should happen, but the end goal is still the same.
