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.
"The story went like this: very famous, well known, Denver sports columnist gets wind of impending trade, writes about it knowing full well it’s going down, but makes it seem like it’s just a good suggestion. Trade goes through and big time sports columnist looks like a goddamned svengali."
"Nothing like Jacksonville coming to town to break you out of a slump and the Broncos will break out big time against the woeful Jags. It will be a pounding to the tune of 38-10. WIN"
"You take a shortened version of the person’s last name, add a “y” or a “er” and presto, instant hockey nickname. But I think Colorado Avalanche captain Gabriel Landeskog deserves a better moniker since he was recently signed to a seven year, $39 million extension."
"Sports and specifically Colorado sports teams are rife with underperforming squads which baffles and frustrates fans and ownership alike. But what causes a group of talented athletes to perform under its expectations?"
A rare treat as we have Mile High Sports’ Zach Fogg (@zachfoggsports) AKA Honey Bear in the concrete bunker who used to work nights and is now available, for the first time to join the South Stands Denver Fancast.
We get Rockies and baseball heavy right off the bat....hold on....it’s riveting. Zach explains why baseball nerds are insufferable and while Colin makes the case for the Monforts, Zach explains why they’re awful.
Colin's son’s baseball championship and how grown men shouldn’t go watch those games by themselves without a kid in the game is discussed. We broach some fantasy talk and how the shit talkers can suck John’s ass. We speak about some metal.
We make Zach play GM of the Rockies and it’s gripping. If you care even one bit about the Rockies, you will want to hear this. Raiders or Juggalo almost throws our panel and Tweep of the Week. A great show and pleasure to finally have Honey Bear on the show. Here’s to many more.
"Rockies fans will never get rid of the Monforts. They are the remoras sticking close to the shark picking off the crumbs till the end of time."
"Making a move, any move, could push the team in the right direction and get them to the playoffs despite everyone expecting the opposite this year. But the Rockies won’t do it. They’re like landlords who take your rent but refuse to get the dead racoon out of the duct work."
Just a chill show with a couple of bros, talking sports but mainly talking about people talking sports. We delve into some Broncos, some Rockies and how people talked the Broncos Execs DUIs into the ground. And then we talk a little booze and one member of the show is not drinking tonight. We play a terrible game and discuss how a locally CBS Sports blogger did the usual and took out his nerdy frustrations on a fan base of a team. You know just the usual night in the bunker. Tight butts and boner pills.
"But when someone who’s supposed to give you unfiltered opinions on a team starts digging into the fan base who have no say in how bad a team does in free agency, it’s like inviting someone to your home and having them tell you your kids are ugly. It’s so childishly condescending, it’s baffling and hilarious all at once. And it makes Moore look like the insecure nerd he’s obviously terrified people will find out he is."
"And like most creations by wild narcissists who’ve run out of ideas, Yeezus doesn’t completely fall flat on its face, but it certainly hits a wall and spins out of control from there. Slowly rolling to a stop in the fiery heap that it is."
