Hi, Bronco fans. I am new to this forum and to being a fan of the Broncos. I got here because I am such an avid fan of Peyton Manning.
It goes all the way back to Archie, his Dad. I was living in New Orleans when Archie played for the Saints. He was a good qb, but played on a terrible team. When his boys grew up and became prominent, I started following their careers. I followed Peyton from Newman High to the Vols, to the Colts and now to the Broncos.
I met Peyton in 2005, when, after losing everything in Hurricane Katrina, I was invited to throw out the ball at a Colts game. That is Peyton and me in my avatar. Over time, I will post some more of the pictures in an album on here. He was so kind and gracious to my daughter and me, honoring my request to meet him and then spending quality time with us. It was a big thrill in my life.
I hope to post quite a bit here, as I love to write, and I love football. The Broncos are now my NFL team. I have always admired John Elway, one of the all time greats. Of course I pull for the Saints too, but cannot pull against Peyton and did not when the Colts played the Saints for the Lombardi. Enjoying college football also, I am a fan of the LSU Tigers. I would also like to say that I greatly admire Tim Tebow and pulled for him and the Broncos. I hope he does well and becomes a great qb wherever he goes.
NFL favorites now: Broncos, Saints, Giants. Oh, yes, Eli is elite. Archie and Olivia must be so proud of their sons. Anyway, I was a loyal Colts fan, but am mad at them now because of how they could so easily cut the man who may be the greatest qb ever. He did not deserve that. Luck will never live up to his legacy.
I hope I am welcome. I had trouble getting registered on another major Broncos forum, so I chose this one. I have read all the rules and intend to obey them. I hope to visit Denver some day, although I do not get around much any more.
Go Broncos, or as we say in Louisiana, Geaux.
