65 Things Fans Love More Than the Denver Broncos

Denver Broncos lovers like to think of themselves as the best and biggest fans anywhere — but the folks at Fansided don't agree.

A Time Inc. website, Fansided has published the Fandom 250, an unusual project that essentially rates apples against oranges. Rather than using specific categories (fans' favorite sports teams, for example), the list judges the fandom of celebrities, TV shows and movies, entertainment companies and more.

When compared to pretty much everything in the pop-culture universe, fandom for the Broncos finished 66th, which seems respectable at first blush. But there are at least twenty sports teams from either college or the pros ranked higher — and that's not to mention a slew of singers, the president-elect and the show that gave us Daenerys Targaryen.

Continue to count down the 65 things fans love more than the Broncos, complete with photos, followed by the Fansided description of why our hometown team finished 66th. Click to check out the original post and all 250 top finishers.
