The Denver Broncos face the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50 this weekend. Denver has been to 8 Super Bowls, tied for most ever with the New England Patriots, Dallas Cowboys and Pittsburgh Steelers. John Elway led the team to two championships and we shall see whether Peyton Manning beats Cam Newton this Sunday for banner number three.
Even though the Broncos have had a storied history, the team’s greatest moment ever, however came in November, 1979.
That year, Robin Williams was starring in the TV show Mork and Mindy which was set in nearby Boulder, Colorado. For one episode, Mork joined the Bronco’s cheerleading squad. And to film the scene properly, Williams actually joined the Broncos cheerleaders for a game against the New England Patriots. Perhaps fired up by Williams’ amazing antics, the Broncos won the game.
The man was simply a legend like none other.
