It's officially training camp month and if you're a big football nut like I am, it's a joyous time of year. Especially considering that THIS year, fans will be back bringing the legendary atmosphere back to Empower Field at Mile High, but can get back into the swing of things by heading to Englewood for some training camp action for the first time in two years.

According to the Denver Broncos,


Practices will once again be open and free to the public but there will be no autographs due to the NFL's COVID protocols that are still in place.

This year's camp will also feature a welcome back to football celebration called Training Camp: Back Together Saturday on Saturday, July 31, that will be invite only with limited public access.

All attending fans must agree to the Fan Health Promise via a digital signature before entering UCHealth Training Center. (For more information regarding the Promise, click here.)

Little did I know but since moving to NoCo about 10 months ago, I learned that the Broncos used to have their training camp for many years in Greeley and WAY back in their early years, Fort Collins was the training camp home for the team.

I've heard many stories of John Elway and many of his teammates that used to frequent Bruce's Bar in Severance for their world famous Rocky Mountain Oysters..which, by the way, I STILL need to try.
