Boulder County was one of seven Denver Metro counties that helped to fund 75% of the new Broncos stadium over 10 years, as part of the Stadium District. That investment paid off, big time.

It's like getting an envelope in the mail saying that a long, lost relative just left you hundreds of thousands of dollars: Very unexpected. Now, Longmont is one of many cities sitting on quite a little windfall. What will they do with it?

Bottom line, according to The Daily Camera, is that after the Walton-Penner group purchased the Denver Broncos for $4.5 billion, $41 million was owed to those seven counties that funded the Stadium District. Longmont's share of that profit coming to a whooping amount; enough to choke a horse, you might say.

The "funny" thing is, is that Longmont doesn't really have a solid plan on what's going to be done with all that money. The money is to be spent on "youth activity programs," and according to The Daily Camera, that's a very wide spectrum of vagueness. It could go to things like uniforms for little league or go towards music & arts. Both are youth activities.

A FEW IDEAS FOR LONGMONT'S WINDFALL:

  • Paying Russell Wilson to coach the Trojans for a week or two.
  • Paying for every schoolkid to see a show at Denver's Theater District.
  • Taking all little leaguers to a Denver Broncos game at Mile HIgh.

Scroll Through a Pictorial History of the Denver Broncos

The Denver Broncos have one of the most successful franchises in the NFL. Eight Super Bowl appearances, 15 division titles, 21 playoff appearances, and three championships. But, as every fan knows, the road is never easy and with every victory, there are plenty of heartaches and disappointments. All the memorable moments and players are too many to mention here, but, take a look back at some of the highlights and heartaches of the past 60+ years.

LOOK: The story behind every NFL team name

Stacker delved into the story behind every NFL football team name. Overall team records, also included, are reflective of NFL regular-season games. There are some football teams with well-known nicknames—the Jets, for instance, are often referred to as Gang Green—but we also divulge how some teams’ official names are sparingly used (the Jets’ neighbors, the Giants, are actually known as the New York Football Giants). Sometimes a team name can tell you a lot about local history: The Vikings of Minnesota draw upon the area’s strong ties to Scandinavia, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are dripping in local legend related to Florida’s pirate past.

Let’s kick off the countdown with the folks who earned their nickname by buying boxes of used team jerseys.
