Mike Klis at the Denver Post was the first to report that the Broncos have an interest in hosting a Super Bowl.

That of course has become the new speculation following the Concrete Jungle's Super Bowl splash.

So go ahead and add Denver to the growing number of cities that are hoping to reap some rewards off of New York's recent winning bid for 2014.

However, if the Broncos were to land a gig, it would be a long ways out from now.

Pat Bowlen's office went ahead and endorsed the concept as an interesting idea; it certainly would be a great thing for the city of Denver and Invesco Field would make for a very unique Super Bowl location.

There are some things seriously hindering this dreamlike sequence from actually taking place.

First of all, it seems that the ignored weather rule was discarded for New York and one season only, so the Broncos would need to press for a more permanent change to the average temperature restrictions on Super Bowl host cities.

But also, and perhaps more importantly, altitude could make the bid far more difficult than it was for New York.

And Denver isn't the country's most populated city.

If all of those factors can be overcome (and the snow Gods are willing to hold back for a year) then Denver could be home for a Super Bowl in the distant future.

The best news for fans who might actually like to go is that Pat Bowlen's office is interested.

A lot will hinge on the reception to the Super Bowl in the February air of New York, as well as how hard the front office pushes for this to happen.

I wouldn't expect Denver to have a shot at hosting anything until the late part of the decade however, so mark it on your calendars as something you might get to look forward to one day.
