Today is my brother Tim's birthday! (And NO! The "65" is not his age - he's younger than me!)
Tim is a big Denver Broncos fan, so to celebrate his birthday, I'm offering up this Super Six list of appearances which former Broncos quarterback John Elway has made on television. (Some of which make him eligible for the TV Crossover Hall Of Fame!). Tim's favorite player is Elway - see that framed picture over his left shoulder? That's a picture of the two of them together. Just by chance he ran into his football hero.)
SIX JOHN ELWAY TV APPEARANCES
1] 'LAS VEGAS'
Elway played himself in the second season finale "Centennial", along with Jon Bon Jovi and Dean Cain.
2] 'HOME IMPROVEMENT'
In "The Eve Of Construction", Elway kicked off his Toobworldly presence by working with Habitat For Humanity.
3] NBC SUPER BOWL COMMERCIAL
Since Tim is the third child in our family, I figured this slot would be the best birthday berth for the inevitable video.....
4] 'THE GREAT FOOD TRUCK RACE'
During the 'Rocky Mountain Highs And Lows' episode of last year, Elway showed up - I guess to prove the show really was in the Rocky Mountains area?
5] 'THE 1983 NFL DRAFT'
John Elway was the 1st overall draft pick that year. But he was picked by the Baltimore Colts, and Elway wanted no part of that team. He threatened to play pro baseball instead until Baltimore finally traded him to the Broncos.
6] 'WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE?'
September 10, 2001 - Elway appeared on the game show the day before the world changed forever......
(I didn't mean to end that list as Debbie Downer. But it is a good illustration of the timeline demarcation point for the modern world.)
Anyhoo, happy birthday to Timothy Ticklepepper, as my Grammy used to call him!
