ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Defensive tackle Mitch Unrein is setting his alarm for the wee hours Saturday morning even though the Denver Broncos' stadium scrimmage isn't until mid-afternoon.
Unrein is hoping to watch his girlfriend, Olympic trap shooter Corey Cogdell, strike gold in London.
He's hoping his Internet connection at his hotel is strong enough for him to watch the finals. Said Unrein, "Hopefully I'll be really excited because she won gold and I'll go out there and have a good scrimmage."
An avid outdoorsman, Unrein is a third-year pro from Eaton, Colo., who went to the University of Wyoming. Cogdell grew up hunting in Alaska and bagged her first moose at 18. They met on a blind date 18 months ago.
