Hey, Broncos fans!
During the bye week, six of your Denver Broncos Cheerleaders were lucky enough to go on an Armed Forces Entertainment tour. This is a trip to boost the morale of our troops and their families who are based overseas and need a little bit of America brought to them.
Brianne, Serita, Nicole, Tara, Candace and I traveled around the Mediterranean visiting American bases and embassies in five different countries. Fifteen days later and with 19 commercial flights under our belts, we are back in Denver.
I am very excited to share our experience with you.
We started our amazing journey at a NATO base in Greece. With less than 10 American families at this based they were thrilled to see a small piece of home. Next, we found our way through three different cities throughout Turkey. We flew through Istanbul, than to the cities of Izmir, Ankara, and Adana. Turkey was by far my favorite, a country rich with history and a touch of modernity.
After Turkey we headed to Cairo, Egypt. This was one of the craziest places I’ve ever seen. People, cars, and garbage everywhere, but a beautiful place nonetheless. Then off to Amman, Jordan, a city with landscapes that took our breath away. Last but not least we made it to Germany. Whether we were at an air force base that was as big as a small city, an American compound, or an American Embassy set in the middle of a major city, we felt extreme love and gratitude from every single person who came out to see us.
At every location we did a meet and greet, signed autographs, and were able to form great relationships. It was so amazing to have our troops so open and eager to share their stories of their experiences, families and what they plan on accomplishing in their futures. All of us cheerleaders were on this tour to show our gratitude for what they do for us, and I hope we showed them how much they mean to us.
Something that stuck out to me was a strong sense of community that had formed between the people stationed at every place we went. Whether they were from different parts of the U.S., had dissimilar backgrounds and beliefs, or were in the service or just there as a civilian, everyone was there to support one another.
During the kids’ clinics we held, we noticed the kindness the children had towards each other. They were so happy to be where they were and to have the friends they have. Some of our meet and greets were held during the weekly “night out”. Everyone looks forward to the time they can get together and enjoy the company of the friendships they have formed. Whether they were new to the base or had already been there for two years, everyone was family.
The entire tour opened my eyes to how much our troops and their families sacrifice for the safety of our country. Sometimes while living our everyday lives I think we forget how much they do. From this day on I will never go a day without thinking or praying for our men and women overseas. The Soldiers who we met in route to Afghanistan/Iraq, the people who are preparing for their deployment, and the families who move across the world to serve our nation. We will never forget what you do and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Below are some photos from the trip:

Pick Up Mile High Sports Magazine!
Eagles season ticket holders got a sneak-peek at the October, hockey edition of Mile High Sports Magazine when they picked up their tickets earlier this week, and they were likely pleasantly surprised to see veteran Eagles Chick Alyssa as the "Girl In Your Corner" for this month's hockey-themed issue. In addition to Alyssa gracing the pages, the magazine asked several Denver sports personalities to weigh in on the state of hockey in Colorado -- including the Colorado Eagles.
Be sure to pick up a copy of the October issue of Mile High Sports Magazine today, and keep an eye out for December's "Snow Angel" issue when another popular Eagles Chick will be featured!

Mammoth fans watch out for the hot new dance team
October 17, 2010 Credit:Jessica Taussig
Colorado Mammoth lacrosse players prepare for the 2011 season ahead while their Wild Bunch dance team holds annual tryouts. This past weekend at the Pepsi Center over 70 talented dancers auditioned in hopes of making the final 14.
Coach, Amy Jo Wagner puts each girl to the test in search for Denver’s most entertaining women for the Mammoth fans. These professional dancers are important to improve the performance of the players and to pep up the fans.
After Saturday’s challenging routine rehearsal only 21 girls moved on. On Sunday, the second day of the tryout process, the remaining girls were interviewed and got their headshots for the 2011 season roster. The remaining 21 girls proceed to the next step continuing onto the Wild Bunch training camp to narrow down the team to the final number of 14 girls. Nonetheless the Wild Bunch semi-finalists are looking good in their sports bras and dance shorts and are bound to excite the crowd this spring.

Hey Broncos fans!
I’m Amanda, and this is my third season as a Denver Broncos Cheerleader. Although, I’ve been a cheerleader for three years, I have been a Broncos fan my whole life.
Many fans wonder if we all really love to watch football, and it’s true, we do! I’ve been lucky enough to have attended many games before I was on the team. The home games are always amazing, but every away game is just as important as the homes games!
There are definitely two teams I feel we ALWAYS want to beat, home or away. Of course, they are two teams in our division — the Chargers and this week’s opponent, the Raiders.
Fans, are you ready for Raider week?! The Raiders will be coming into our house this weekend and we all know it’s going to be a wild game.
The rivalry between us and the Raiders goes back a ways — most remember it going back to a key game in 1977. John Madden, who was coach for the Raiders back then, credits a lot of the rivalry to our Orange Crush fan base. And how the fans were truly so loud and fanatical that it would really mess with the team’s head.
That energy and emotion in our fans really counts on game day. Not only does it pump up the Broncos when we are on defense, but it is always a reminder of the rivalry we’ve had for so long, and how important it is to beat the Raiders.
As a DBC, we are so fortunate to experience so many different things that make us feel so lucky. Last season we were given the opportunity to go to an away Raiders game.
It was such an amazing experience to go watch the Broncos beat the Raiders in their stadium. We all play a part in game day, and you, the fans are our most important part in how we set the tone for that day. So get your Raider-hater shirt on for Sunday, do your favorite pre-game ritual, and get ready for the rivalry to continue.
Look for more thoughts from Amanda and other Broncos cheerleaders throughout the 2010 season here.

Howdy Broncos Country!
Our first regular season home game is just DAYS away and I could not be more excited! All summer (since May!) the Cheerleaders have been preparing for the season by practicing and attending charity and promotional events.
We are often confronted with similar questions by the fans, so I thought I’d try to shed light on some of the most frequent questions we hear in case you haven’t had a chance to ask us yourself! I also hope this helps you to better understand the life of a Denver Broncos Cheerleader and what it’s like to dance for the best team in the NFL!
Do you have a weight requirement? I get this question a lot, and it always surprises me. No, we do not have weigh-ins, and there is no weight requirement. We are accountable for keeping fit so we look and feel our best in our uniforms, and represent the Broncos and the rest of our teammates well. Also, DBC’s have always been known for our abs and we want to maintain that reputation!
Do you guys eat? YES, we eat a lot!! I can’t go 2 hours without eating! It takes a lot of energy to get through practices and game days, so rabbit food diets won’t cut it either. Eating a balanced, healthy diet helps us looking and feeling our best, but cutting out all junk food is not realistic. My personal favorite is Mexican food, and one of our line captains (Nicole) even bakes treats for the team to celebrate birthdays!
Do you travel with the football team? No, we do not travel with the team. In fact, the NFL mandates against our being on the field of an opposing team during away games, with the exception of the Super Bowl, which is played on a neutral field. Life as a DBC is already so busy, I can’t imagine having a family, working or going to school full time AND traveling to away games. Our team does travel occasionally, several of the veterans performed on a AFE (Armed Forces Entertainment) tour in Australia last March!
How often do you practice? We have 2 formal rehearsals per week, each lasting anywhere between 4-5 hours in length. Most of us spend 1-2 nights per week “practicing for practice,” especially during the early summer months as we prepare the bulk of our routines for the season. By the first preseason game, we have 25-30 routines, and once the season kicks off we continue to learn new material. It is our responsibility to come prepared to rehearsal, so for many of us, extra practice time is often required.
Do you get paid? I get this question a lot, too. Yes, we are paid. I won’t tell you how much, but I will say it is enough. It is not about the money; field level seats for every home game are worth it in itself! We all feel so blessed to be able to do what we love (dance and perform), for the team that we love (the Broncos!!), and feel it is a bonus to be compensated for it.
Are the girls nice? Does everyone get along? Surprisingly enough, yes! On the field, we are professional and always act with the best interest of the team in mind. Off the field, I have made some of my best friends in life. It’s impossible to be best friends with 25 other women, but I trust that every one of my teammates would have my back in a heartbeat if it came down to it.
Do you have to tryout every year? Yes, all 26 women must compete for their spot at auditions each year, and trust me, no one is safe.
Hope to see you at the game this Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks!
My best always,
