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 Denver Fancast ep 242

The boys welcome in Destiny Rose (@_destinyrose23) a great young sports media talent, die hard sports fan and former assistant to the great Woody Paige.

We talk loads of Broncos, future Broncos QB Philip Rivers, some Around the Horn and why the lesser Denver teams can't keep the transplant fans away. Colin does a decent, but long imitation of Mark Schlereth and we start yelling about the Vance Joseph allegations and whether they're relevant. 

We had technical difficulties the nigth before and Destiny was kind enough to come back second night and it was well worth it.

South Stands Denver Fancast ep 241

Lawyer, real estate mogul and more importantly Renaud Notaro's partner on the Final Verdict (Mon-Thurs, 6-8pm) on Mile High Sports Dan Jacobs (@dantjacobslaw), joins us for a lil' Broncos talk.

But first we talk some Soicher, and then we dive headlong into the Broncos coaching hire of Vance Joseph and Dan has some very strong opinions on it.

We get into some discussion of the Broncos ownership going forward and which children are the competent ones. Some Romo talk and Dan finds out we don't give two figs about college football. Then we round it out with some Headlines to Yardlines.

Revel or wallow in the new Broncos coach hiring on the latest ep of Denver's hottest sports pod.

South Stands Denver Fancast ep 240

Good pal, 104.3 The Fan producer and DU Hoops play by play guy Raj Sharan (@raj_sharan) sits in again for another show with John and Colin.

We talk Broncos, Nuggets, Colin's obsession with Ally Sturm and we go on a lengthy jag about DC and Marvel movies. 

Raj talk about how the fast play by play of basketball is easier than the slower pace of baseball and we get some final impressions on who the the next Denver Broncos coach will be.

Definetly let Raj know which version of Batman v Superman you like better.

We're back. And just in time for Handsome Tom week.

Don't be fooled by imitiations, The SSD Fancast is the original worshippers of all things Brady and we deliver an action packed show with 5280 Sportsnet's @jakedmarsing.

We talk Rockies, Nugs and of wouldn't be show without going deep on YOUR Denver Broncos. And we nominate a host of people for our first ever Worst Broncos Fans bracket that we will be launching shortly.

A great show where we honor Handsome Tom and some good info from rising Denver media star Mr. Marsing.

South Stands Denver Fancast ep 238

The first podcast from Trump's America and it's a doozy.

Are there some sports talked? Probably. But this episode is a meditation on the state of the country, it's people and what it means going forward. Oh and John goes off on some people for being wormy, douchebag Denver sports media fuckheads.

Then we talk some Broncos and we cram in just enough Rockies to qualify this as a sports podcast. 

Live it, love it and God Bless America.

South Stands Denver Fancast ep 237

A South Stands Trio show with Colin, John and Scott. We get deep into the World Series, the Cubs and what this means for the Rockies. 

Eddie Vedder's terrible Cubs song and why the hell he's even involved with it is discussed and later, Colin tells a story about watching the game with a friend with a horrible ending.

We get a little political and then talk a little Nuggets and how we can't get no rainbow skyline merch with current players' names on it. And then there's some Broncos talk and how Trevor Siemian is actually bad and not good. There were some audio difficulties but if you're putting up with poor QB play from the Broncos, this won't bother you a bit.

South Stands Denver Fancast ep 236

We finally get the main man behind BSN Avalanche, AJ Haefele (@ajhaefele) in the bunker and pick his brain about all thing Avs, what's wrong with Denver media's coverage of the team and who generally sucks at it.

We talk about those Avs and the hot start and what to expect going forward. Then we delve into AJ's food idiosyncracies and what common food and drinks he's never had. 

The Broncos are discussed finally and Colin sticks to his prediction that the team will be 6-2 in two weeks. We'll see. Then we wrap up with a Headlines to Yardlines, some more Avs talk, the difference between Broncos fans and Avs fans what numbers they should or shouldn't retire for the Nuggets. 

We brought so much luck to the Broncos that one time we recorded at the Rosedale (formerly Boones) when the team played the Chargers on a Thursday night, we figured we should try it again. 

Not so much. 

It's a bummer of a show because you know how it turns out, but we have some fun, talk about the Broncos with Jake Marsing of 5280 Sports Net and out buddy Snyder who pops in for a bit. And we also eat some delicous food that we can't stop talking about. 

We get a little Rockies talk and some Nuggets chat in while also covering some Trump and what "locker room" talk is. 

The outcome of the game may be a bummer, but the show is another nice installment of the "recorded live" archive of the South Stands Denver Fancast.

Fantasy Life ep 10

When the Fantasy Life gets you down, you have to find a bright side and we do just that on this episode.

We talk a little fantasy hockey to start things off because John and Colin have a draft coming up and the importance of being there. 

Then we dive into some daily and try to make sense of this crazy fantasy football season.

South Stands Denver Fancast ep 234

Former radio host, current baseball coach and soon to be manager of the Colorado Rockies, Reed Marks (@reedmarks) joins us to talk all kinds of Walt Weiss and Rockies. Reed explains while it was actually good and not bad that Walt left us and what the keys to the Rockies success are going forward. We go deep on this for awhile and it's fascinating stuff. We also talk a little Root, some Cavnar, there's a Tweep of the Week and we eventually get around to some hot Broncos talk if you can believe it. Rockies season is over and the sun has set on the Walt Weiss reign of terror. This show is a fitting send off to all of it.
