10 Ways to Spot a Broncos Fan in New York

Posted Jan 23, 2014

Visit Denver has provided a list of ways to find other Bronco fans in New York.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – As Bronco fans from Denver head to the New York/New Jersey area for the Super Bowl, Visit Denver has provided fans with 10 easy was to spot fellow Coloradoans on the East Coast. 

  1. They’re thin. Denver consistently ranks in top 10 lists for healthy, active and thinnest residents of any major city, and Colorado is the thinnest state.
  2. They’re tan. Denver has 300 days of sunshine a year – more hours of annual sun than San Diego or Miami Beach.
  3. They have healthy calves from biking. Denver had the nation’s first citywide bike sharing program and currently has more than 800 bikes available at 83 stations throughout the city. There are 850 miles of paved, off-street bike trails in metro Denver.
  4. They’re wearing their good jeans. Denver epitomizes urban casual. It is a laid back city where you will see people in jeans at the office… or the opera.
  5. They have a return airline ticket in their pocket. Sure, New York is great, but this is powder season, and no Coloradan stays away for long at this time of year.
  6. They might order a “growler” in a bar. Denver brews more beer than any other city and has 29 breweries in the downtown area. More than 200 different beers are brewed in Denver every day. (A “growler” is a container used to take away fresh craft beer from a brewpub – something people do regularly in The Mile High City.)
  7. They’ll know who James Beard is. Denver’s growing reputation for chef-owned restaurants increased in 2013 when chef Jen Jasinski of Rioja won the James Beard Award for Best Chef Southwest (and followed it up as a finalist on Top Chef Masters).  More than a dozen Denver chefs have had the honor of cooking in New York’s James Beard House. 
  8. They’ll be stopping people on the street to ask, “Which way is West?”  From almost anywhere in Denver, you can see the mountains to the west. Denverites will be lost without their mountain panorama, which is 125 miles long and contains more than 200 named peaks.
  9. They’re as likely to be at Lincoln Center as MetLife Stadium.  As a gold rush town, Denver had a performance of Macbeth before it had a school or a hospital.  The Denver Performing Arts Complex is second only to New York’s Lincoln Center, offering ten venues that seat 10,000 people for theatre, opera, symphony and dance.
  10. They’re wearing something orange.  Denver has seven professional sports teams, more than just about any other city in America. The Broncos have sold out every game for 44 seasons, the second longest sellout streak in NFL history.
