The “Snowball Game,” November 11, 1985 – – San Francisco 49ers 16 at Denver Broncos 17

During my visit with family in Colorado for Christmas, my older brother reminded me that he and my parents attended this game at Mile High Stadium.  Aside from the memorable game itself, they remembered that it was a very cold night, and that they got home quite late.

Excerpt from the wikipedia article:  In American football, the Snowball Game was the name given to the November 11, 1985 National Football League game between the San Francisco 49ers and Denver Broncos. It was notable for a play in which spectators at Denver’s Mile High Stadium disrupted a 49ers field goal attempt by throwing snowballs from the stands.
