Have you ever had an experience that you know, without a doubt, will be something you and your family will remember for the rest of their lives? Something so unbelievably cool that the sounds and smells resonate in your body for days afterward?
I have and so has my family. Monday night football will never be the same for us. This Monday my son, Henry, was the Red Robin Kickoff Kid for the Broncos season opener against the Raiders. Forget that we lost the game. Forget that the screw-ups and penalties were numerous. Henry and I were the only non-staff members on the field, running back and forth with our “body guard” to be close to the action. A member of the Broncos staff was assigned to be Henry’s coach/assistant and his job literally was to make sure Henry was safe and to pull him out of the way if the ball or gigantic players were in danger of taking him out. I did not have a bodyguard, I had to fend for myself and I was ok with that! This was the best game ever!
Henry’s job for the entire game was to retrieve the tee any time the Broncos had a kickoff. There are some big boys on that field but they are as graceful and disciplined as can be. I created this video because there are no words to describe how incredible it was to be right in the middle of it all.
How on earth was this possible?
You can enter your child (ages 6-12) for a chance to be a Red Robin Kickoff Kid at a Broncos home game. There will be 6 prize packs given away to Colorado residents! If chosen, your child will get to retrieve the tee after each Broncos kickoff and enjoy the game from the sideline. In addition, you’ll receive:
- Two sideline passes with access to the field 1 hour prior to game time.
- Two Broncos jerseys
- Two stadium seats
- One year Broncos Bunch Kids Club membership
Over the past few years, my involvement with social media has brought some incredible opportunities for myself as well as for my family. One of the best brand relationships I’ve had to date has been with Red Robin Gourmet Burgers. When they asked me to be a judge for the Kids Cookoff last spring, I was instantly impressed by how much they believed in their brand, but more importantly how much they truly cared about kids. This is a company I feel good about and I’m proud to have been able to participate in another opportunity with them. Thanks Red Robin!
