If you live in Denver, or are planning to move to Denver, you may want to be involved in the Denver sports scene. Denver is one of a few cities to have a professional team in all four of the major sports. From the Denver Broncos to the Colorado Rockies here is a look at all the major professional sports teams in Denver.
The Denver Broncos have been one of the premier franchises in the NFL for many years. In their history they have won three super bowl championships in 1998, 1999, and 2016. Hall of Fame Quarterback John Elway led the Broncos to two titles in the nineties.
Future hall of fame quarterback Peyton Manning was able to defeat Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers in 2016. Right now the Broncos are led by superstar linebacker Von Miller, who is always one of the league leaders in sacks.
The Nuggets have always played a fast up tempo style to coincide with their advantage at high altitude. They play in the Pepsi Center, which is roughly a mile above sea level. The Nuggets are led by their young franchise center Nikola Jokic, and dynamic guard Jamal Murray.
The Colorado Rockies always play an exciting brand of baseball. The mile high elevation at Coors Field leads to more home runs for both the Rockies, and their opponents. Coors Field is always in the top ten for ballparks with the most home runs hit in them.
Leading the way for the Rockies in 2017-18 season was 3B Nolan Arenado, who hit 38 home runs and drove in 110 RBI. Trevor Story was right behind him with 37 home runs and 108 RBI. The Rockies won the wild card, and were eliminated in the divisional round of the playoffs by the Milwaukee Brewers in three games.
NHL hockey fans can also visit the Pepsi Center to watch the Colorado Avalanche play. The Avalanche are a young but talented team. They are led by their 23 year old center Nathan MacKinnon, who scored 38 goals in 2017-18. MacKinnon is one of the fastest players, and most talented goal scorers in all of hockey.
As you can see there is no shortage of excitement for Denver sports fans. All four of Denver’s teams feature exciting players and teams that have the city buzzing. The Broncos, Nuggets, Rockies, and Avalanche are teams that have amazing facilities to watch games.
