I want to encourage everyone in the Denver area to attend a fun, worthwhile Denver Broncos event tomorrow, Saturday, December 17, at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. Barrelmania Day 2011 is an event being run by Becky McKernan, the widow of Tim McKernan AKA The Barrel Man. Their Barrels of Love foundation aims to provide for less fortunate families; their website is at

The event is being held inside the office suits of the stadium, in the Colorado Sports Hall of Fame. More information, including cost ($5 in advance plus a wrapped gift) is available here. There’s also a nice black tie event planned thereafter.

I’ve volunteered to help Mrs. McKernan and so am excited to be trekking from Arizona tonight to make it to the fair tomorrow. See me rocking a classic #56 Al Wilson jersey and say hello. Hope to see you there!

    I  had the pleasure of meeting Mr. McKernan several times and I  do not hesitate when I say he was the greatest Bronco fan of all time.  I wish I could attend this event, it sounds like a great time for a great cause.   I hope you do a story of how it turns out Monty.

    I got to meet him here in San Diego at the NFL Experience, right before Super Bowl 32. He was so excited about that game and I definitely thought about him after the Broncos big win a few days later. Great guy and no one loved the Broncos more. It’s an honor to say that I got to talk to him and shake his hand.

    I got to know Tim when we both worked at Stapleton, he for United and me for Continental. What a guy,we were both diehard Broncos fans and enjoyed talking about the team. I left Denver in 1994,and was very shocked and saddened when I found out the Tim had passed away. If I was in Denver would be at the benefit today.  BRONCOS4LIFE

    Good on you Kyle for making that drive to help out.  Can’t do the same from DC but will be sending love to the McKernan and Broncos families.
