Sports Media multi-tasker and occasional muck-raker, Joel Klatt, from Root Sports Rocky Mountain and 104.3 the Fan talks about doing dual-duty, his journey through the worlds of sports and broadcasting, the state of the Colorado Rockies, the reason he's a Red Sox fan and what it's like to be on the road as a Dad.
Prepare to learn something you didn't know about a native son.
Klatt went from Pamona High to the Minors to CU to three years as a walk-on starter at QB to the Detroit Lions to the radio to TV. When it comes to sports, Klatt has seen it all.
Professional football teams don't suddenly switch offenses. The Broncos had the spread-option ready to go before they even hired John Fox.
For the Denver Broncos this season has been like some kind of nutty family reunion. Why stop now? Call Gary Kubiac and Wade Phillips and ask 'em to bring a green bean casserole.
Our pal and designer, Mega-C posted a pretty epic Tebow rant on his Facebook page today. We asked of we could lift it.
When it comes to Tim Tebow he thinks everybody needs to chill.
An epic show where the Denver Post's Benjamin Hochman (@nuggetsnews) and the Ticket's Nate Kreckman (@natekreckman) join us for the second time, the first time together.
We talk Broncos and the upcoming playoff game, get into some Nuggets talk but really the towering achievement of this week's show is the cutthroat TV trivia game John plays with the guests. It's a knock down, drag out battle and a new champ is crowned. Kreckman pulls a "Norv".
Tweep of the Week where DJ Williams wonders if there's 3D porn, and a plethora of laughs and shenanigans. Hochman and Kreckman are always super cool to come hang with us so follow both of these gracious chaps on twitter and their various media adventures please.
We are thrilled to have recieved another wonderful post from our friend in Florida, Tori Toney. Tori was raised in Colorado, is stranded in the South, and LOVES the Broncos. Tori's most recent contribution deals with Denver's defense and it's outstanding rookie linebacker, Von Miller. Enjoy. Follow Tori on Twitter @torsterrr
It's been a couple of hundred years since anyone founded a shiny new religion. Perhaps the time has come. Let's face it, mortals have been moved to worship by lesser beings than Tebow.
The good folks at Deadpin report that rumors are flying around the world of pro Skiing that Tim Tebow was at the center of Lindsay Vonn's recent divorce.
In a post titled: "Did Tim Tebow Break Up Lindsey Vonn’s Marriage?", the site suggests that Vonn might have bailed on her old man to spend a little more time with the Chosen One. Tebow, the rumors say, is "the other man".
Of course, Tebow has said publicly that he is saving himself for marriage. It's doubtful that he's bangin' her. She says she's just close with his family. We're pretty sure that, if there is any fire to go with this smoke, it couldn't go any further than some light petting.
DJ Steve Porter has been using press sound bites to make these whimsical audio mixes for many years. They are featured regularly on network pre-game broadcasts and are popular on YouTube. This time it's Tim Tebow's turn to get the treatment. Enjoy.

I never really liked sports until I had a religious conversion when the Broncos lost to the 49ers in that one Super Bowl. Now I'm obsessed with all aspects of the Denver pro sports world. Oh yeah, I hate college football. It's crap. Talk to me on twitter @johnreidydenver
