DENVER (CBS4) – Broncos fans may still be feeling down about the loss in the Super Bowl, but Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock is trying to brighten the mood.
The mayor proclaimed Thursday is “Denver Broncos Appreciation Day” in the city and released a YouTube video where he thanks the team. The video features the song “Love Don’t Die” by Denver band The Fray and shows pictures of one of the Broncos fan rallies and Broncos signs around town.
As part of the announcement, the mayor encouraged fans to sign a digital thank you card for the Broncos players, coaches and management. The card will only be available for signing digitally on Thursday. It will be sent to the team on Friday.
One of the dozens of messages from Broncos fans already on the card Thursday morning was from “All Weather Fans” Courtney and Kyle. They wrote “We were able to go to two games this year. Our favorite was seeing Matt Prater’s record field goal. We can’t even describe that feeling. We can’t wait to go to camp this summer and catch more games during the season.”
Another fan, Joyce, wrote “The sadness I feel is for you all because I know how hard you worked to achieve your goal. Knowing how much you want it makes me excited for August.”
The city will also be putting up signs at the intersection of Colfax Ave. and Broadway declaring those streets United in Orange Way and Pat Bowlen Blvd. after the Broncos owner.
