Thread: Greetings

  1. #1

    Default Greetings

    Hello, folks. I'm 39 (about to be 40) from PA and I've just selected the Denver Broncos as my favorite NFL team.
    No, I'm not joking around.
    As a kid, I never really had a loyalty to any team in particular. As an impressionable teenager, I fell in love with the Jim Harbaugh-led Indianapolis Colts and their magical playoff run. Lucky for me (and apparently you guys), the Colts drafted a guy named Peyton Manning shortly thereafter, and being a Colts fan was easy.
    However, I'm a College Football fan through and through. My passion lies with the Michigan Wolverines, and always will. Because of the energy put forth in watching College Football all day every Saturday, Sundays took a back seat, and I couldn't in good consciousness be a "Colts fan" and never watch. In fact, I didn't watch the NFL for quite some time. But lately, I feel like I've been missing out on the fun of the Sundays, so I decided it's time to pick a team, get behind them, and follow them. Hopefully this is the start of a beautiful relationship.

    My reasoning for the Broncos? Well, I've always enjoyed the team. Elway was awesome while I was growing up, and quite honestly, I liked the colors. I also like cold weather, stingy type teams. And a defensive team was a must. I considered the Vikings for a moment, but **** Kurt Cousins

    Glad to be on board. Looking forward to learning about the team, adopting some favorite players, and enjoying my inaugural run as a Broncos fan.

    I'm open for questions at this time.

    Best to all,
    Balki

    Um. Welcome?

    supposed to be impressed because one reason you like Denver is because of their colors or something?

    I don't understand some first time poster's posts because of what they say sounds just dumb, and then they jumble it all together like an illiterate.

    This is even worse than a bandwagon fan imo

    Jesus dude, some welcome wagon.

    What do you care why they became a fan. I say welcome aboard. Anyone who picks a team a year after they win 5 games is not a bandwagon fan.

    So it only took 45 seconds to find the first ***** on this board. Thanks for the kind words. Let's hope the rest of this board doesn't embarrass themselves like you did, else there are plenty of other forums on the internet

    Oh, I don't think you'll have to worry too much about that.

    Hey man, welcome!

    I liked the colors too..... But that was due to my inherently bigoted upbringing on the west of Scotland where orange equals protestant.

    I am getting more and more into college ball, I flirted with a few teams Tennessee because the color, Manning and a guy on here, looked at Penn State as I saw them in Ireland..... But now I am fairly fixed on the buffs.

    Hope you hang around and are not a reincarnation of yash (long story), a bot or a Russia agent.

    Balki, you sound a lot like me. I threw the gauntlet down for the broncos in my late 30s/early 40s by signing on as member of a fan forum that is no longer around. unlike you, I didn't have much working knowledge of football and got made fun of a lot for that and other things. it's pretty fun being a broncos fan, you came on board at a good time, eff Shazam, he's a grumpy ****. Jake Plummer was at the helm when I announced my fandom. Oh, and if it wasn't Denver, it would have been Minnesota for me. anyway, Welcome aboard
