Fans

Tim McKernan aka Barrel Man (Denver Broncos). Began wearing a barrel in 1977 after making a $10 bet with his brother, Scott, that by wearing one he could get on television. .McKernan won the bet and the barrel he had painted to look like an Orange Crush soda can became his signature costume and resulted in him becoming one of the Broncos' most recognized fans and a popular mascot.^ Recent history has shown the Steeler fan base that unlike the Denver Broncos, whose best football is most likely already behind them this season, the Steelers tend to excel and play their best football during the stretch run.
