To kick off the festivities, the Broncos and 850 KOA Radio will be hosting a 12th man party on Friday at the stadium. From 3:00 to 7:00 p.m., Dave Logan and Suzie Wargin will broadcast live from the Broncos Barn at INVESCO Field at Mile High and they are encouraging fans to stop by to join in the festivities. In addition to having the cast of The Zoo on hand, there will be a host of other events to help fans get ready for Sunday’s showdown.

In addition to the party, the Broncos will be providing incentive for fans to dons the team’s colors and make noise on Sunday before the game.

As fans enter the gates, 75,000 orange pom-poms will be distributed to everyone in attendance.

In the Broncos Barn, orange beer will be served, every 12th fan in attendance will receive a free 12th Man t-shirt compliments of 850 KOA Radio, the fan with the best orange outfit will win two pregame field passes at 12:35 and the team will host a sign-making contest. Supplies will be provided to help fans deliver a message to the Chiefs, with winners being awarded cool Broncos memorabilia. All of these activities, plus the weekly events inside the Barn – early NFL games on large TVs; a happy hour from 11:15 to 12:15 that features $2 beers, $2 hot dogs and an early-bird raffle for pregame field passes at 12:05; the opportunity to hang out with Broncos Alumni, Cheerleaders and Miles the Mascot; a live band; Sony PS2 kiosks for fans to play “NFL Gameday 2004”; free face painters and great raffle prizes – are on tap to get fans ready to make some noise at the game.

“We need everybody to be hoarse by the time they leave the stadium on Sunday,” explained defensive end Bertrand Berry. “The crowd is big. If they’re excited, we feed off of that energy.”
