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.

Renaud plays Raider or Juggalo

At great risk to his personal safety, Mile High Sports Renaud Notaro (@RenKnowItAll ) played his own game of Raider or Juggalo...

"The Colorado Avalanche’s season is but a dot on the horizon at this point, but the memory of how it ended still stings like Charlie Sheen’s urethra after a lost weekend in Cabo San Lucas."

The advent of the "Fan-alist"

"What would it have hurt to give the old “I’m rooting for the Red Sox, but would be thrilled if the Rockies won” kind of answer? Nothing. But Zappolo, tossing aside the many decades of goodwill he’s earned from the people of Colorado, took a big, fat dump on sports fans in Colorado with his cold, and typical, east coast bias."

" a social media Santa Claus, Fowler was finding out who was naughty and who was nice. "

We review Ron Artest's rap album

"Like an Iraqi cabinet member praising Saddam Hussein, Puff Diddly trots out a laughable monologue where he uses the “Webster’s dictionary” definition of a “true warrior” as he talks about how much of a man Ron Artest is."

Hard decisions are not the Rockies forte

“The Rockies have always had a great defense – they’ve needed it – but offensive slumps have doomed the team. Fowler isn’t the only one guilty of that, but he’s a major contributor. So how long do the Rockies stick with him this year when it happens?”

Les is apparently much, much more

"So Les can spare us his big-timer speak. I'm surprised there wasn't a "Mom’s basement" reference in there. But the simple fact remains that Shapiro, who makes a living stirring the pot (his anti-Tebow sentiment is well documented) and genuinely antagonizing listeners, doesn't like it too much when someone does it to him."


I’m not a Dinger-hater like so many of you are, but really the commercials featuring him are getting so old, cretaceous doesn’t begin to describe it.

The rules for Saint Patrick's Day

"You should be drinking the black any chance you get but if you’re drinking Coors Lite on the one day you should be having a true Irish beer, you’re just being a butthole."

Picking Tim over Team

“But while that’s the ideal situation for Broncos fans who see the potential in Tebow but want a proven talent like Manning to take the reigns, it’s not ideal for the Tebow fanatics who pick Tim over team.”
