Since I'm living in Reno now I decided to go to the celebrity golf tourney this year. I could not have hit the jackpot more with the Broncos I was able to meet. Short of our Super Bowl wins, this was probably my best day ever as a Broncos fan.

The look on your face when you're standing next to Elway is priceless.

I think it may be the same look in all three, but the other two are backlit, so it's hard to tell.

Guys, I'm pretty sure that's just the way he always looks.

It's just a genuine look of sheer joy.

I figured the smile was the way to go. F me, right?

I think it was a good call. I try to smile in most pictures I'm in.

No, no, no. The smile was the correct facial expression. It's just that how happy you looked cracked me up. I'm glad you got to meet some players that you really like. I'm not bashing on you.

Hah I know, I just find it funny that that became the topic of discussion.

John Fox seems like a cool guy.

Did he goose you or anything?

Were there any current players out there?

I like how you managed to get your arm around all three as well. Very familiar.

Hah, no. He was pretty cool though. We talked about how he was easy to get a picture with since everyone was crowding around Elway. I got lucky to catch Elway at a less busy point.

Not many. Was mostly former guys. I also met Jerry Rice, Jim McMahon, Mark Rypien, and a bunch of former baseball players.

Who was the biggest DB? I'm betting Jerry Rice.

Only if you bring up Calvin Johnson breaking his record.

Rice cool early in the day when I met him, but I saw him later on and he was clearly kinda tired of dealing with fans. He refused to sign autographs or take pictures after a while.

Other than that, no one who was too douchy comes to mind. Elway had some funny interactions with fans. He was getting swamped after most holes and was actually being pretty nice all things considered, but he had made a couple of funny, snide comments. One guy asked for a picture and didn't say "please" so Elway asked him to say the magic word, and when he said please Elway said "sorry, too late". There was another guy who asked Elway "do you want a picture (with me)". His response was "Do I want a picture with you? Nah."

According to people I talked to though, Aaron Rodgers and Michael Jordan are the biggest douchebags that are typically there.

Sterling Sharpe was probably the biggest douche I saw actually. He blew off some people (when there was a really small crowd) and finally took the time to sign maybe a couple of autographs.

Hah nope, I've always been this skinny. And Lynch was super cool. Really nice guy and was signing everything and taking tons of pictures. Fox was great as well. Elway seemed a bit annoyed at times, but he was also good for the most part. He was cool to me.

Have been--great time. Got Elway and Shanny to sign a jersey back in the day. Elway wasn't super excited really--was more focused on kids which is understandable.

Tahoe is a great opportunity to meet Elway any year. Nice event.
