Watching the Broncos playoff game today from my place in the Bronx. I somehow
came across this article. Many years ago, early 1980's, I was a young New
Yorker who was living in the Denver area. I worked at a place called the
"Foot Locker." One day, in came this "Giant" of a man, with
very blonde hair and large feet. I was the one who waited on this man, and sold
him a pair of athletic shoes. I am 55 years old, now, and recall that day but
not the exact conversation of course. I do remember, however, asking this guy
if he was a Denver Bronco. He said yes, and smiled. I said, "you're
Rulon Jones, right?" He said yes. Rulon, you likely will never see this
comment, but you could not have been nicer nor more decent. We talked for a
lengthy period of time and I recall to this day your humility. I'm still
and will always be a New York Giants fan, but you're one Bronco who made an
impression on me way back when. Thank you, and wishing prosperity and health to
you and your family.
10,000 acres?One of "several" such hunting ranches?Sounds like Rulon did pretty danged good!Well, good for him. He
deserves every penny of it!
Sounds like Mr. Jones is one of the few that knows that there is life after
football. Good for him and his wonderful family.
I'm hoping this guy gets his place in the Broncos Ring of Honor, if that
hasn't already. He was a great player, perhaps even Hall of Fame material.
as a youngster I snuck down to the USU sideline in Logan during the 4th quarter
of a BYU game....BYU was blowing out the Aggies, yet Rulon Jones didn't
hesitate to sign my football for me, during the game. I've never forgotten
that, thanks Rulon, I still have the ball.
