Mom, Daughter Both Cheerleaders for Broncos in Super Bowl

It's the chance of a lifetime for any NFL cheerleader, a chance to cheer and perform at the Super Bowl. And for a mother and daughter from Denver, it's an honor they both get to share.

Brittany Anderson grew up hearing the stories of her mom proudly cheering for the Broncos in the 1970's.

"I just remember always talking about my mom. The fact that she went to the Super Bowl. And just being all so proud of her," said Brittany Anderson.

Now it's Brittany's turn, she's headed to the Super Bowl as a Broncos cheerleader, just like her mom did so many years ago.

"Then now it's just like, she can be proud of me for following in her footsteps," said Brittany.

Brittany and her mom, George Anderson, describe it as a wonderful bond they both can share.

"It will be the most exciting thing that she's ever done," said mom George.

George Anders had her exciting moment in 1978, when the Broncos played the Cowboys in the Super Bowl. She wants her daughter to enjoy the experience, but she's also hoping for something else this time around.

"They want a victory. That's something I didn't get so that's the thing I want for her the most! Is a victory!" said George.

Brittany is hoping for the same thing, "I always say that because they didn't win back then... She had a child to go to the Super Bowl and so that we can get the win."

The program might be a bit different 36 years later. George said the dancing is much harder now. But their passion for the Broncos is as strong as ever, and Brittany is grateful for what her mother passed on to her.

'The heart for the Broncos. And all of her talent and support," said Brittany of her mom.

The entire Anderson family is in New Jersey for the big game to cheer on Brittany and, of course, the Broncos.
