SouthStands Denver Fancast - John Reidy

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, hate college football. And I used to write a column for AV Club Denver but now am a full time contributor to this here site.

South Stands LIVE show 273

Back at it again. It's been awhile and we needed to get stretched out first, but when we do, we get loose.

We are visted by Scoop Nemeth, we talk Rockies Dril, John meets DJ Lemahieu. 

Colin goes on and on about going to Taylor Swift with @LAbaaaaaby, we lament the advent of the Lime Bike, lament the advent of transplants and standing in line everywhere.

It's also a night of clips and we play Colin on 9 News and why he's blocked by the Mayor and why we're both block by ATT Sportsnet RM.

Good times. Good to be back. Enjoy.


Denver Twitter sports legend Brooke Cale (@Brooke_Caleenters the bunker for the very first time and we have ourselves a great show.

Brooke talks about her love of the Nuggets, her not-love of certain players and some feuds she's gotten into.

We talk all kinds of Broncos draft because she knows way more about college players than we do and we suss who the Elway traitors are in the room (hint: it's Brooke and Colin).

Then we get into some Avs and their precarious position going back to Nashville which switches to the anthem singers, how much Rascal Flatts sucks and whether Jake Shroeder (an Avs game legend) has lost his fastball.

Very fun show and if we hadn't been up late all week watching hockey, we could have talked all night.



It's been a long strange trip, but we finally landed our white whale, Scott Hastings. That's not a fat joke, we've always wanted to get Scott in for years and knew he'd be the best guest and he delivers like the UPS man.

We talk about being a young NBA player and what it would be like if social media existed then, his legendary call on the first Broncos Super Bowl, his days at KOA and his insight on the current Nuggets situation.

I could go on and on about this show and we almost did. Just listen to this NBA champ, one time Denver Nugget and enjoy. He promised to come back and take an Uber but it was a thrill to have Scott in and it really was one of our finest moments.

South Stands LIVE: show 270

First time guest, Nick Tremaroli (@NickTrem_17) stops by for an epic turn in the Souths Stands bunker.

Nick is a college hockey man at DU (, which we told him we won't be discussing, but he handles it well because he knows a lot about the Rockies and we get deep into that business.

But before that we talk about Boone (the DU mascot), Vance Joseph, a Moran of the Week and some other hilarity. 

The Rockies are covered like a blanket later in the show and Nick gives us his Rockies fantasy picks.

A great first time appearance and he'll definitely be back soon. And he got a free hat.


Old friend of the show Ryan Boulding (@rboulding) sits in for the first time in several years.

You see, Ry-Guy was working for the Avs and he couldn't come in lest Colin get him fired for something inappropriate, but now he's free to be himself.

We talk all kinds of media, Avs and what it's like to be in the war room of a sports team at a trade deadline. It's brilliant stuff.

Bronco Jeff (@BroncoJeff) fills in for Scott and he does a fantastic job.

Colin's Moran of the Week is Mile High Report and we get all argumentative because John thinks he's being ridiculous. Spoiler: he is. 

It was great having Ryan back and this show covers it all.

"These racist goons would gladly start up concentration camps in America if they could keep winning and no one questioned how their team cheated its way to winning five Super Bowls. Fuck the Pats fans with a glass covered dildo."

"So the lack of upcoming outdoor game in Denver is baffling, but it’s also typical. The NHL has the awareness of a texting teen walking into traffic."

South Stands LIVE: it's not so hard to do

It may be show 268 but it's the first time we've successfully live streamed to Youtube. No thanks to some people.

But this show was extra good because we had BSN Rockies Drew Creasman (@DrewCreasman) and Jake Shapiro (@Shapalicious) on who talked about all kinds of stuff (Nuggets, Batman, shitty Denver media members) including a great segment about YOUR Colorado Rockies.

We went well into overtime because we had to. It was just that good.

Enjoy. And if you want to see a video version of it, check out the replay of the live stream here

South Stands (not very) Live! Show 267

The Boys are back in town.

An intimate show with no guests, just Colin, John and Scott shooting the breeze about YOUR Broncos, Rox, Nugs and Avs plus the usual Trump talk.

We cover it all and then some including a lengthy talk about the Denver Post going behind it's Trump-esque PayWall.

Also we attempted a live stream, but it never showed up. Something about that damn Ipad mucking it up. But next time, you'll be able to see our handsome faces.

Rock and Roll forever. 

BSN Denver's ace Broncos reporter Ryan Koenigsberg (@RyanKoenigsberg) joins the show for his second time for spectacular results. 

The first time he was on, there were sound issues and while a good show, it sounded like crap. And it wouldn't be the same if that didn't happen again, only this time a good five minutes is lost due to Colin's computer overheating and cartoon steam coming out of it.

Nevertheless, the rest of the show is great. We do talk a lot about the subscription based BSN but from a fan perspective and how we consume sport media and it's good stuff.

We then talk a whole lotta Broncos, Vance Joseph and who the next quarterback will be. 

Overall we keep it pretty clean despite Colin's best efforts. This is a Broncos fan paradise. 

Check out Ryan's work at BSN Denver. Shell out some money you cheap bastards or listen to the podcast for free. Do your thing.
