It’s the most wonderful time of the year…again!

Well, it is nearly the end of November and the Denver Broncos only have two home games left this season. With four games away from home of the final six remaining this season we need all of the fan support and enthusiasm we can get! Are any of you planning to make it to any of the road games?

This year Thanksgiving was a beautiful celebration with family and friends. I hope that all of you were able to bring in the holiday season with some of the same experiences. Last year I started a baking tradition with the women in my life. I carried it on this year and made apple pie from scratch — crust and all. The preparation portion was fun, and the end product is always one of the best parts, but I think one of the things I enjoy most about the process is taking advantage of the time with my mother and grandmother who both live here in Colorado. It is refreshing to bring in the holiday with people who have sincerely impacted your life.

Thanksgiving morning I ran the Turkey Trot in Washington Park with several friends. The course was beautiful and people got pretty into the race by dressing up. It was certainly a memorable experience. Do any of you have interesting Thanksgiving traditions?

One of the things I am continually surprised about with the coming of the holiday season is how quickly people start moving. Some individuals were up at about 4 a.m. the day after Thanksgiving to get some of their holiday shopping started. And many of my neighbors already have their houses decked out in Christmas spirit. With Christmas trees strapped to the tops of cars and holiday music on the radio, I think many start to feel the pressure of 2008 just around the corner.

Well, with the Christmas season on the rise I should make note that our team will be selling and signing our calendars at various locations around Colorado for every weekend in December. As soon as I get the list of who will be where and when, I will post; it would be great to meet all of you consistent bloggers while your doing some of your holiday shopping!

Plug: Our calendars make great stocking stuffers! (I couldn’t resist.)

Our team recently received some very exciting news. Every year our team nominates one woman to attend the Pro Bowl to represent the Denver Broncos Cheerleaders in Hawaii. This year’s representative is Jenn Kelly — a beautiful, inspirational, positive, and talented woman.

Only 15 women have ever been invited to attend the Pro Bowl to represent the Denver Broncos Cheerleaders (DBC), so not only is the invitation an irreplaceable opportunity, but I think it is always humbling to be voted into a circumstance or situation because of your character, and that is exactly why Jenn will represent the DBC; she has a beautiful spirit and a very sincere character.

One of her most recent projects has been putting together Christmas gifts for our troops overseas in Iraq and Afghanistan. If any of you see her at a promotion or charity in the coming months, please be sure to share your warm congratulations with her!

Have a great week everyone!

A Perfect Night for MNF!

Wow, what a change. Last night’s game against the Tennessee Titans contrasted drastically against the previous two home games. At the Green Bay game, there was more green and yellow in the stands than I would prefer to see at a Broncos home game. Against Pittsburgh, I saw too many Terrible Towels being waved in the air.

However, the moment I walked onto the field last night, it felt different. I could tell there was a lot of excitement in the air. After the Broncos came off a great away win against Kansas City, Broncos Nation was pumped. Right before the Broncos took the field the fans were going crazy. Almost every seat in the house had an orange pom pom and was waving it in the air. I could tell that our fans were back and in full force.

The Broncos organization ran a huge campaign last week – wear it loud and wear it proud! And they did. Prior to the game, I was in the Broncos Barn tent where I was greeted with many enthusiastic fans. I saw fans with spray-painted hair, orange and blue faces, encouraging signs, and plenty of energy. They were ready for another Broncos win.

The evening proved to be quite exciting as the Broncos took the lead and held onto it. Going into Thanksgiving week, this gives us all something to be thankful for.

Fans, continue to wear it loud and proud. I know your support reflects down onto the field and affects the players. Cheer them on; get excited! This season is not over yet!

The John Lynch Show

Have any of you have seen the Qwest John Lynch Live show at Old Chicago in Littleton? Tonight was my first time attending the show and I had a blast! Every week John Lynch and CBS4’s Vic Lombardi put on a show with Broncos highlights and guest speakers. They select one cheerleader per week to introduce the show as well as introduce the guest speaker. Tonight’s guest was tight end, long snapper, and the emergency QB, Mike Leach.

This was my first taste of broadcast journalism. I was a math major in college so I didn’t spend a lot of time in front of a camera. However, I’ve have had to get used to being in front of a camera since becoming a Broncos Cheerleader. You never know when a camera might come your way at a game or if there’s going to be a speaking opportunity at a promotion or charity. This keeps me on my toes!

Great newscasters like Vic Lombardi make taking in front of a camera look easy! Sure talking is easy, but add multiple cameras, lights, a loud crowd, and nerves and it ends up being a bit more difficult than one would think! Hopefully I hid my nerves, but I definitely have a lot more respect for the people who do this for a living.

The staff at CBS4 was wonderful — they set me up with a headset and helped me practice my lines before going live. They made me feel very comfortable and I am thankful for all their help. And the fans in the audience were great — very enthusiastic and eager to chat. I was happy to have met some of Denver’s longest and most avid Broncos fans. This was definitely a fun experience!
