DENVER (KKTV) - If you live or work in Denver, the mayor announced Wednesday will be "Pat Bowlen Day."
Fans are encouraged to wear the Broncos gear to honor the late owner.
Bowlen, the Denver Broncos owner who transformed the team from also-rans into NFL champions and helped the league usher in billion-dollar TV deals, died at 75 in June.
Bowlen, elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame this year, was the first owner in NFL history to have his team win 300 games - including playoffs - in three decades. He had as many Super Bowl appearances (seven) as losing seasons, and the Broncos had a 354-240-1 record since he bought the team in 1984.
Under his stewardship, the Broncos won Super Bowls in 1998, '99 and 2016.
