Christmas gifts, big-ticket items for Broncos and Broncos fans
Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen has been getting big-name gifts from fans on the road for Christmas.
On Dec. 26, the Broncos owner had a gift card for his son, Jacob, a Denver native, for Christmas, and on Monday, he opened up to Fox Sports about his gift-giving experience.
Bowlen, who’s the first NFL owner to receive an NFLPA “Pat” award in the organization’s history, opened up about what it was like to receive a gift from the players on the team, how it has changed his life and why it’s important for the team to continue to provide his son with a great Christmas.
Bowler’s son, who is now 18, is the first of six children.
It was an easy decision for the family to make for him to have Christmas presents from the Broncos, but it’s been a wonderful gift for me to be able to give back to my son, Bowlen said.
It’s been really good to see the support that the players have shown.
It’s been great to have a couple of them, like [Josh] McCown and [Demaryius] Thomas, come over and say they appreciate the Christmas cards.
It means a lot.
I think the best thing that we’ve seen from the fans is the way they’ve shown their appreciation.
I don’t know if they can match that level of appreciation for anything else that they’ve done.
There’s been an unbelievable level of support.
It was just so rewarding.
I think the fans have been great.
It just means a tremendous amount to have that support.BOWLEN’S PRICE-RELATED HOLIDAY DREAMS, DIRTY DIVAS BONUSESTWEETED ABOUT THE NEW EAST CHAMPIONSHIP STANDINGSThe NFL has a Christmas tradition of awarding players with “Championships of Valor” — one for each year they’ve won a Super Bowl or been selected to the All-Pro team — with each of the past six years.
Bowlen received a special one this year.
It means so much to me because the Broncos have been a part of the Broncos family for a long time and I feel blessed to have been able to have them here.
That’s one of the things that I’ve always wanted to do and one of my favorite memories of Christmas is when we won the championship.
We had a lot of fun playing in the Super Bowl.
I feel blessed because I think it shows the support for the Broncos franchise, for the players, for this community, and I want to thank them for that.
The Broncos’ victory against the New England Patriots on Sunday was the Broncos’ first win since 2014.
The franchise also has won six consecutive Super Bowls, including a title in 2008.
This season, the team has won the AFC West and the division title in the past five years.
The first-place Broncos won their second consecutive AFC West title in 2016 and the first Super Bowl title since 1998.
