NEW YORK (CBS4) – Fans are descending on the East Coast this weekend in advance of Super Bowl XLVIII at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., and one of the biggest Broncos fans was among them – Denver Mayor Michael Hancock.
Hancock is one of the more enthusiastic fans in New York City. CBS4’s Kelly Werthmann ran into him Friday morning in Radio City. He arrived late Thursday night and has been busy with interviews ever since.
The mayor is thrilled to be in Manhattan and ready to cheer on the Broncos and hopes to see the team bring home the Lombardi Trophy.
“I think it’s huge. It means a lot for any city to win the Super Bowl, and the bragging rights that you have for the year,” Hancock said. “Every time they introduce the Denver Broncos next year they will say the ‘defending Super Bowl champion Denver Broncos,’ and it’s a big deal. And it mean’s most of their games next year will be prime time, further putting Denver on that global stage, quite frankly, and talk about how great our city is.”
The mayor said plans are in the working for when — not if – the Denver Broncos win the big game on Sunday.
