The “Adult’s Table” just got a little bit lonelier.
We recently tried to talk some sense into Denver radio host Les Shapiro when he took his frustrations out on SouthStandsDenver.com after some interesting things were said about him (not by us) on our award winning podcast. But he wasn’t having any of it.
But after he tried to sass talk a member of the Denver Broncos, Les got a one way ticket from his famed “Adult’s Table” to a seat in the naughty corner.
