In school, Elway became interested primarily in football and baseball, even taking part in the Major League Baseball Draft in 1979, and was chosen by the Kansas City Royals.

"where he was taken by the Baltimore Colts before being traded to the Denver Broncos. "

He flat out refused to play in Baltimore..jumped up and down...whined like a prima donna until the Colts caved. ( if you will) I thought it was arrogant of a college kid THEN...and still do. That said, I don't take anything away from his QB skills...after all ..Denver beat my BELOVED GB PACKERS in the SB.
