Nfl, record purchase: Walton (Walmart) takes the Denver Broncos
The investment is to shake the veins in the wrists: 4.65 billion dollars. You read that right: $ 4.56 billion to get hold of the historic Colorado franchise, the Denver Broncos. The purchase is given for certain and comes at a time when the team, which boasts three Super Bowls won with historic qbs Elway (brace) and Manning (the last hurray of his career), have taken another quarterback to five. stars: Russell Wilson, author of 10 amazing seasons in Seattle, winner of an SB right on the Broncos (he will have to be forgiven …), “wretched” finalist against the Patriots (instead of letting Lynch run in the decisive game he opted for a throw, sensationally intercepted to the delight of Brady), always the protagonist of positive seasons (except the last one, if we want to nitpick, but thanks to a hand injury).
Character also outside the field for his philanthropy, married to the actress, model and entrepreneur Ciara, with whom he forms a splendid couple della Costiera, chased by the US paparazzi, where the two are a celebrity).
