First of all, did you see the Denver Bronco’s mascot, Thunder, at the game? I didn’t, either. I totally missed him. Phooey. I would have loved to have seen him thunder into the arena, leading the players!
I read that he is a 16 year-old Arab gelding. They say he was picked to be Thunder #3 because of his temperament – very easy going, tractable and unflappable.
I know Thunder is a fan/crowd favorite and I’m glad to know that he was there, acting as a fine equine ambassador.
But the interesting tidbit is that he almost didn’t make it to the Super Bowl due to very bad weather!
