Colorado is a hotbed of sports activity. It has a young energetic base of residents who enjoy sports of every description. Baseball, football, hockey and basketball are considered the Big 4in most parts of the country. Colorado has them all with the Denver Broncos of the NFL, the Colorado Avalanche NHL team, MLB’s Colorado Rockies and the Nuggets of basketball fame; not bad for a city of this size.
Some say that the fresh mountain air invigorates the fans. Others claim that fan interest in sports comes from the diversity of its young residents who brought their sports interests with them when they moved to Colorado. Not only do they enjoy watching the Big 4 professionals play, the locals are active in all sorts of sport activities like skiing and skating to go along with their participation and interest in lacrosse and even bobsledding. If it involves a ball, a skate, a stick or a ski, count on support from Colorado fans.
Whatever the sport, anxious Coloradans actively and aggressively support their home teams, and add even more excitement to games. The owners have responded by stocking the teams with quality players who put local teams in contention for top honors in every sport available in this town.
Some jealous observers claim that Colorado, specifically Denver has the best sport fans because they have the most breweries in the country. The fans are experts in that category as well.
