No show this week so we thought it was a good time to repost this great show we did with Joel Klatt in 2013 before he became famous-er. Here’s what we said at the time:
Wow. Just wow. The venerable Joel Klatt (@joelklatt) makes his debut on the South Stands Denver Fancast and it’s a doozy. And two hours long. We talk all about Joel’s past, present and future as a sports broadcaster. We get all all over it and talk some Nuggets, college football, concussions and an explanation of Tulo’s “heavy legs.” At some point we find out about why Joel says “Bruncos” instead of “Broncos.”
=We ask Joel about the criticism of the Rockies and the way the broadcast crew handles it and how Joel handled the mania that was Tebowmania while he was in Denver. John bails out of a Juggalo or Raider fan, but Colin produces a crusty photo and we play anyway. We talk about germs and then get into an LA quiz to prepare Joel for his journey in Los Angeles.
Joel is a totally good dude, not only for coming in but for being a total pro during his time on the air in Denver and putting up with all of our (read: your) nonsense. We wish him well with his new gig with Fox Sports 1 starting in August.
