    Reading what you all had to say about him, he was somebody who always stuck with his team just the same if they were good or bad.

    I have seen pictures of him at Broncos/Raiders games at McAfee Coliseum. In fact, here's one of them.



    He was always welcome there.

    I got to meet BM before the Chargers/Broncos fiasco in Oct. He was excitied to meet a fan who travelled all the way from Western Canada and made me and the girlfriend feel right at home. We shared in a round of shooters before going into the game and toasted the Broncos. It was great. I have a pic with me,him and the (now ex) girlfriend, happily I could crop her out and still treasure the picture...haha

    All the Best Barrell Man!!

    I started watching Bronco games where I grew up in Billings, Montana at age 12 in 1968. I became a true fan in 1977 and haven't looked back. God Bless you, Barrel Man. You are truely part of Americana! Enjoy your well deserved retirement.

    I'll miss ya BM!!! You are the face of Broncomania!!!!! I have memories from when I was just a wee little Bronc's fan and watching you get the crowd doing the wave.......was that a tear that just formed in the corner of my eye?


    It will be different not seeing the Barrel walking around the stands........


    At least they gave ya a win and made sure to even give ya a little extra OT in the end.







    PEACE!!!

    IM gonna miss that dude..
    I saw him for the first time in Person In 1987. That guy is the epitomy of fanatic. Oh and I bet that, though disappointed in not only this season but many other seasons in the past, barrelman never considered once abonding this team as a fan.
    Whatever happened with this team, losing Superbowl's, Head coaches embarrassing seasons. That guy would never consider bailing out.

    I wish that some of the so called fans that are screaming about leaving the team or hating the coach(es) etc. etc. were more like him.
    I said it before I want the team to win every game too, but thats not reality. You can look for the reasons and voice your opinions and SCREAM to the top of your lungs in frustrtion, but when the season rolls round again and you aren't here for the team, then you were never here for them in the first place.

    Hey Tom if for some reason this makes it to you. thank your for 30+ years of fun, fanaticism, and most of Loyalty To the Denver Bronco's

    Thanks Barrel Man

    thanks for the memories. i have him being interviewed by a local news station here in San Diego during our first superbowl victory and everytime i watch that part it makes me wanna cry. thanks for all the memories. i definitly like you more than the lepercon looking dude...

    i had an idea of taking over for him by getting home depot to make me a bigger version of their homer buckets and putting that on and calling myself "BUCKET BOY". the bucket is already orange. but i am too fat to fit in one of those right now or if i tried i would probably need the jaws of life to cut it off of me after the game. haha. thanks again B. M.
