ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — On Tuesday morning, just before lunch, John Elway strolled into the team meeting room at the UCHealth Training Center ready to face the media for the annual end-of-season press conference to discuss the Denver Broncos’ disappointing year.
As he sat in his chair, he looked up through the bright lights to the large room speckled with media members and stole the show—as if John Elway in the room didn’t already do such.
“First of all, Happy New Year to everybody. There’s nobody happier than me that 2017 is over,” he said with a slight grin reaching across his face, breaking the ice, while at the same time being completely serious.
That is, of course, except for one person, “Maybe Vance,” Elway added.
