Denver’s “Finals” History

January 26, 2014

The city of Denver will have a major league sport’s final game/series for the tenth time, with the Broncos’ appearance in next week’s Super Bowl.

The city’s record in this round is (4-5) but they started with 4 straight losses, all by the Broncos in the Super Bowl.

Since the San Francisco 49ers rout win vs the Broncos in the 1989 Super Bowl, Denver teams have won four of five major North American sports’ league finals.

A finals winning streak of four started with the Colorado Avalanche of the National Hockey league winning it all in 1996. That was their first year in Colorado, after years as the Quebec Nordiques.

The Broncos won back to back Super Bowls following the 1997 and 1998 seasons.

The Avalanche won their second Stanley Cup in 2001.

The loss was in the 2007 World Series when the Boston Red Sox swept the Colorado Rockies.
