The Squeeze: Which Bronco is pals with Chewbacca?

Posted Jan 8, 2016

One Bronco played college basketball with the actor who plays Chewbacca, and DIA turns orange and blue for the playoffs.

Happy Friday, #BroncosCountry --

Let's get your weekend off to a great start, starting with Denver International Airport getting playoff fever!

1. DIA turns orange and blue and gets a new voice

The Broncos have to wait just another day to see who they'll face on Jan. 17 at Sports Authority Field at Mile High in the divisional round of the playoffs, but DIA is already in the playoff spirit, turning their flight boards orange and blue.

And that's not the only way DIA's getting in the playoff mood. Demaryius Thomas is the newest Bronco to voice the train greeting that plays as visitors ride from their gates to the main terminal. Listen to his recording here.

2. Norwood former teammate of Chewbacca

Perhaps you knew that Jordan Norwood had a little, one-year stint as a member of the Penn State men's basketball team. But what you might not have been aware of is that during that time he was teammates with a 6-10 center who would later become the actor who played Chewbacca in the latest "Star Wars" film.

You can read more about actor/basketball player Joonas Suotamo here, via Denver Post's Nicki Jhabvala.
