The greatest owner in Denver sports history is getting his very own day.
The City of Denver is proclaiming Wednesday as “Pat Bowlen Day.” Bowlen, the late Broncos owner who led the franchise to 21 winning seasons and three Super Bowl titles, built the franchise into a regional football empire while making the team the most popular ticket in town.
Bowlen died in June at 75 after a lengthy battle with Alzheimer’s, and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in August. Under Bowlen, the Broncos won 333 regular season games and recorded a .598 winning percentage, the fifth-best mark in American pro sports.
