Denver Nuggets Fan Spotlight - Cheryl Burger
For the sixth edition in our Fan Spotlight series, we talk with long-time season ticket holder and Denver resident Cheryl Burger. Cheryl and her husband Scott bring their positive energy to their seats just behind the Nuggets bench. Over her 9 years as a season ticket holder, Cheryl has seen the Nuggets' current 8 year playoff streak in its entirety, and amassed quite the collection of Nuggets memorabilia.
How long have you lived in Denver?
Where are your seats located?
Prime Loge, 3 rows behind the Nuggets bench!
How long have you owned season tickets?
10-game fan plan since '99, full season tickets since '02.
How do you utilize your tickets? Business, Personal, other?
Why did you initially purchase your tickets?
It's an activity my husband and I both enjoy and something to look forward to through the long winter.
What is the craziest thing you have seen or experienced at a Nuggets game?
April 12, 2004 when the Nuggets clinched a playoff spot for the first time since '95. It was more exciting to be at that game than it was most of the actual playoff games since.
What is your normal game-day routine? Any superstitions or habits special to Nuggets Games?
Scott walks from work downtown, Frank, another partner in the group, walks from home downtown, and I take the light rail in after dropping off kids at their grandparents. We all converge at Pepsi Center and go to the game. No superstitions.
What is the coolest piece of Nuggets memorabilia you have?
We have a lot of cool stuff! Three sneakers, two are autographed. Two autographed jerseys. One pennant from '03 season autographed by the entire team, Rocky, GM, 3 coaches and owner! Basketball from '02 season autographed by the entire team. Three scrapbooks full of photos with players and other memorabilia.
