The private group that took over the stadium that morning were bringing in bus loads of people for a stadium tour (about 25-30 people at a time) and through the graciousness of one of these group's leaders, we were allowed to accompany a group on their tour.
We got to see the United Club, an Executive Suite, the press box, and a party suite. We didn't get to go on the field (there was another event scheduled on the field) but we got to go to the edge of the stands and see the field. We toured the player areas and even a locker room. All of that was cool, but the highlight of the day was in the locker room; the team had sent over the Vince Lombardi Trophy (the trophy given to the team that wins the Super Bowl). Apparently the Broncos will sometimes do something special for large groups and they did today, allowing people in the group to pose with the trophy the Broncos won in Super Bowl 50. Had our original reservation been honored, we probably wouldn't have had this opportunity, but because we were with this other group, I got to see the trophy up close. There was only one rule: don't touch the trophy.
I am generally a rule follower, but I couldn't resist the urge. After posing for pictures with the trophy (first by myself, then with my lovely wife), I swiped my hand across the table, nipping the back corner of the trophy. I touched it! We went from dejected to out of this world.
Two days after touching the trophy, it was in DC with the Broncos to visit the White House and President Barack Obama.
