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.

I can't miss you when you never leave NFL

"Are you a sports fan or are you just a football fan? If it’s the latter, it’s like a child who, with all the food options available, will only eat chicken nuggets. Certainly delicious, but a very narrow world view."

The constant rerun of #RockiesTown

"The injury excuse will creep back in, but if you’ve watched any of these games you’d know that pitching in all phases is just killing the team. And the power outages at the plate have stranded more men than an evil Colonel in an 80’s war movie. Heard this all before? Me too, that’s why I know the team is going nowhere fast. Again."

"If that’s how you show respect, I’d hate to see when he didn’t like you. Keri was trying to defend the analytical driven front office people he knew as not being totally blinded by the stats. Ringolsby, being a time traveler from the Eisenhower administration wasn’t having any of it and insisted that stat geeks “work off an Excel spread sheet” only."

"Stations like the Fan and Mile High Sports have tapped in to the way things are now and KOA is being left behind by an embarrassing margin."

"I still can’t get confirmation on who it was, but I do know that this was the most amateurish and lame thing to say to an athlete I’ve ever heard. As clown questions go, this one was a tiny car, packed full of shame."

"People who spoil TV shows are barbarians who may have some mental health needs that may require a psychiatrist."

"The #PartyDeck became a running joke this offseason, because it seemed the Monforts cared more about packing the stadium with drunks than packing the bullpen with quality arms. The owners’ near maniacal need to sell tickets rather than improve the team was put on display and everyone nodded sadly. "

“In fact, let’s call it that: Early Spring Freak Out and Copulation Day. You can wear whatever you want, get hammered and honor the Goddess of Spring or the Lord of Baseball for all I care.”

A South Stands St. Patrick's Day mix

Here are you some tunes to kick off your St. Patrick's Day weekend:

"My concern however is that the Avs are going to get steam rolled by a battle tested playoff team specifically due to those previously mentioned defensive deficiencies. And by some of the lazy defense that was on display all season long, it’s clear that it will be the Avs undoing in a seven game series. "
