Denver's own Kathleen Kelly ran in the Boston Marathon along with her husband Brad. The couple crossed the finish line only minutes before the bombing.
This is Kathleen's story, which she graciously allowed the South Stands to publish.

"Let’s call a spade a spade; the 2007 Rockies were a bigger fluke than Moby Dick’s tail. It’s not everyday that a team catches fire en route to a pennant. Then again, it’s not everyday that a bird takes a dump on your head."

Luke Binder (@303Luke) has been kind enough to share his fine writing with us in the past. His Wordpress site can be found HERE.
Today he allowed us to reproduce this letter to Carmelo, which we think our readers will enjoy.
"I’m of the opinion that Taco Bell is best enjoyed one of two ways – in the secrecy and privacy of one’s own vehicle, while parked in the parking lot of the Bell itself, or at home, with friends after a night of vigorous drinking."
As the dust settles over Mark Kiszla's Nuggets piece in the Denver Post titled "Nuggets coach George Karl has the cushiest job in the NBA", which has caused much consternation this morning, we were pleased to accept this submitted article by South Stands reader Luke Binder.

As discussed earlier this week at the South Stands, the very concept of "college" football is an absolute joke. As we see year after year during the combine, players are being moved through universities who have no business being associates with education. Many are hired guns who could not meet the basic entry requirements for the schools they represent. They're coddled, protected and passed, making a mockery of secondary learning. The NFL is even dumbing down the testing they use to evaluate players to create a "more level playing field" for guys who can hardly read. In fact, there are illiterate players in nearly every draft.
The solution to this issue is to create an opportunity for aspiring NFL players that does not involve college - a legitimate NFL minor league. One of our readers, Kevin Doran (@Doranka) offers this proposal.
South Stands reader Jason Bott (@JBott32) submitted this touching peice on why the upcoming Broncos season holds extra importance for him.
Guest Author Joe Solomon believes that the Nuggets should take advantage of a certain change in circumstances in the Eastern Conference in order to improve in time to win a Champioship right now.

Zach Sheely's back and he's seemingly on a mission to really piss off the Denver Broncos faithful. Doubting Peyton Manning? Why them's fightin' words. That's why we could not wait to post this.
"His last pass of an otherwise outstanding 14th NFL season was a poorly thrown interception that set up the Ravens’ game-winning field goal in the second overtime. Manning turned in his worst performance since a September loss to the Falcons."
"This time of year, megacorporations kick their dumb-person brainwashing tactics into high gear and because the Broncos have been eliminated from the playoffs there's a good chance they'll attempt to capitalize on your sadness and drag you deep into this toxic cesspool of commercialization."
