"Inspired by the ever studious Sandy Clough from 104.3 the Fan, who often takes time to read the local newspapers covering Colorado opponents, I decided to take a look at the comments sections below articles on the Cooke hit at both the Minneapolis Star Tribune's web site and the SB Nation Wild blog "Hockey Wilderness" to see how Minny fans were reacting."

"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."
"NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has decided that every single month of the year needs to involve some sort of NFL event and won’t rest until the NFL takes over the world, literally."
That's the now famous refrain that our old Pal Masai Ujiri barked at a Raptors fan rally. Masai's Toronto club is poised to take on the Brooklyn Nets in the first round of the Eastern Conference Playoffs.
"People who spoil TV shows are barbarians who may have some mental health needs that may require a psychiatrist."
"To celebrate the show about nothing on the 25th anniversary of its first airing, MCU Ballpark will transform into many of the Seinfeld-isms that has made it so famous and such a cult favorite. "

"For all I know there are hundreds of masterful announcers all over this great land who can keep fans informed and excited and paint a picture of a hockey game as it's moving at a frenetic pace. But I simply cannot imagine that there's a single one better than Marc Moser."

As Paul Stastny scored the winning overtime goal in last night's exciting Avalanche victory over the Wild one elated fan looked familiar banging on the glass and cheering on the Colorado squad. None other than Nuggets' point guard Ty Lawson was in the Can to watch the game and you can see by the look on his face that he was enjoying the playoff atmosphere. Perhaps he'll enjoy that with the Nuggets again one day soon, but for now it's neat to see him there supporting the ice hockey club.

"If we're lucky we'll witness a dozen or so "where were you" moments in our lifetimes as sports fans. One happened last night."

"If you’re going to head to your nearest sports bar to watch the Avalanches play the Minnesota Wilds starting tonight you’ll want to be prepared. It’s important to act as though you’ve been locked in on the Avalanches all season."

We take a bit to get warmed up but when we do, it’s a hell of show. Local hockey media legend, Ryan Boulding (@rboulding) takes time out of his busy, busy schedule to pay us a visit and lay down a great show featuring tons of Avs talk, Broncos lamentation, and some Rockies talk that involves mostly George Frazier. We do a great hockey quiz, a Tweep of the Week, and we go very deep into the media and fan bandwagon overload going on in Denver right now. Then we talk about assholes who spoil TV shows for other people. We revisit Colin’s supreme home run call and then some Moser love. A great return to form right before the playoffs.
Hey, look who's in town! It's Denver's mystery man, the rocket-laser armed superstar quarterback of the Denver Broncos, Peyton Manning, from whom we had heard absolutely nothing since the Super Bowl...until today. Old number 18 made an appearance at Pepsi Center this morning to support the Boy Scouts of America.
He took a little time to provide the assembled press with some paper-thin comments about the big game, players who are gone who he will miss and what it's going to take to get the Broncos back to the Super Bowl. Naturally, everyone lapped it up. What Manning didn't say was that he was embarrassed about his performance or that he regretted what Broncos fans went through on that miserable Sunday in February. Nope. It's all about looking ahead for Pey-Pey. Remembering is for the rest of us.
On a side note our caps are tipped to Susie Wargin who clearly still has two great arms.
"There's an interesting contrast between the way the sudden popularity of the Avalanche is perceived versus the continued interest in the Colorado Rockies. Some in the media assert that the baseball team will never have incentive to improve until the fans stop paying attention. Yet fans did stop paying attention to the Avalanche and are now being punished by some for coming back."

"Thursday was a record setting day for Denver’s two exciting Russians. Each eclipsed franchise records on what proved to be a very exciting Thursday night for Denver sports fans."
"The young Nuggets are building confidence. By taking teams like the Rockets to the wire and by showing faith in their own talents the Nuggets are building a foundation for the future. They’re also learning to trust Brian Shaw. A full-blown tank job might have caused them to implode, leaving them to “rebuild” again next season."
