Broncos Unveil Statue Of Owner Pat Bowlen At Mile High

Bowlen statue unveiled outside Mile High
The Broncos last night unveiled a "larger-than-life statue" of team Owner Pat Bowlen during a private ceremony at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. The tribute "was commissioned and financed by a group of community leaders with sponsorship ties to the Broncos." The 9-foot statue "captures Bowlen in his customary pose on the sideline, wearing a business suit, cowboy boots and sunglasses." It will be "placed in the center of the Ring of Fame Plaza, which is outside the stadium on the south side" (DENVER POST, 10/18). Bowlen's wife, Annabel, said, "Pat has never sought the spotlight and never asked for the accolades during his 31 years as owner of the Broncos. It's very humbling for our family to have Pat receive this recognition" (KDVR.com, 10/18).
