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.

Deadspin needs to lay off @DadBoner

"Deadspin has stuck its nose where it doesn’t belong in a recent story entitled “Who is Dad Boner?” a journey into finding out who is behind one of Twitter’s greatest accounts. And while the story doesn’t shed much light on the author’s identity, we still have to ask the question: Can’t they just leave this one alone?"

I don’t know if God would appreciate the dubious lifestyle Thomas is engaged in or the fact that he left a passed out girl on an air mattress after his buddy told him “I think she’s ready.” But I’m sure the “girl on girl action” that eventually helped acquit Cox is not a portion of Demaryius’ weekly bible study.

"Why are athletes so bitter when they leave Colorado but more importantly why are they so dumb when talking to the media?"

Of fools and fortune cookies

I’ll grant you that “Chink in the Armor” is in poor taste when discussing a basketball player of Chinese descent. But now the grandstanding and stink of political correctness has gotten out of control....

Dan O'Dowd said "extend"

There must be a secret code these guys live by that we’re not aware of. The movers and shakers of the sports world don’t abide by the same rules we do. When they make a decision, it seems as baffling to the office worker as it does the construction worker. And what works in the sports world never really seems to fly in the world of the average joe. Strange decisions and unwarranted extensions. This ladies and gentlemen, is your 2012 Colorado Rockies.

Is Matt Duchene's love of crappy Country Music killing the Avs? John Reidy thinks so.

The first time I heard it, I looked up from my mobile device thinking I heard “Tebow Time”. I didn’t. It was “Depot Time.”

I don’t know how long Office Depot has been using this, but if you’re tuned to the key of Tebow like I am, anything that sounds like “Tebow” will catch my ear.

So did Office Depot knowingly use this because it sounds like “Tebow Time”? I think so. Coincidences rarely happen in our world anymore, and especially ones like this. Tebow, even though he was vanquished by one of the guys actually playing in the Super Bowl this weekend, is still the hottest topic in the NFL. Advertisers know this and the fucking genius at Office Depot who made the aural connection to Tebow and the Office Depot name is probably enjoying a new parking space as Denver Bronco fans and Tebow fans alike, line up to buy our next package of file folders from you know where.
