What is the worst incident you have witnessed against an opposing fan or yourself at the ballpark?
  • "I saw an opposing fan [a Bengals fan dressed as Santa with a Chad Johnson jersey] get shoved down about four aisles of seats on Christmas Eve after the guy stood on his seat and cheered a Bengals interception of a Jay Cutler pass. Then all the Broncos fans in the section blamed the altercation on the Bengals fan, who got kicked out of the game."
  • "During the second quarter of an AFC West contest between the Broncos and K.C., a Broncos idiot launched a full beer and a load of expletives, at a K.C. mom and her kid, who were just watching the game. The kid stood there wet and crying."
  • "Lincoln Kennedy getting hit with snowballs was awesome. Him going up into the stands was not so awesome."
  • "A Cincinnati fan was severely bludgeoned with his own trumpet after playing Charge! for the Bengals for three quarters during a game at the old Mile High Stadium in the early '80s. I do remember it being annoying, but still. I was 5, and that is my first Broncos memory."
What is your favorite memory from a game at the stadium?
  • "The first game at the new stadium and Terrell Davis giving his Mile High Salute to the crowd."
  • "Jason Elam's 63-yard field goal against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Oh wait, that was at Mile High Stadium. Never mind. The best thing at Invesco was Barack Obama's speech."
  • "Champ Bailey picking off Tom Brady in the playoffs and running it to the Pats' 1-yard line"
