"I guess I should be thrilled they blocked me since I didn’t follow them in the first place, so it’s a backhanded honor just to be recognized. A backhanded honor I’ll see on my wall through tear filled eyes."
It's not been the greatest season to be a Nuggets fan but there's still a ton of pride in this city for our team. This video, produced by Airball Creative (@airballcreative) was circulated to season ticket holders by the Nuggets. It's awesome and it's bound to make all Nuggets fans rise to their feet.
And, if you reTweet the tweet below on Twitter today you will be entered into a giveway for two club level seats to see the Nugs abuse the Lakers tonight at Pepsi Center.
"Program Directors do their best to make decisions that benefit their stations, their listeners and the bottom line. Sometimes they get it right and sometimes they totally screw it up."

"Dallas is a playoff contender but nothing really all that special. The Mavs are a quality opponent that is beatable and Nuggets fans deserve to see the blue and yellow win tonight."

What a nutty week.
After attempting to launch a brand new lineup on Monday morning only to find out that it had no home on the dial, Mile High Sports radio has spent the past 48 hours scrambling madly to overcome technical issues and attain a new signal.
The station's old signal was sold off, leaving Mile High Sports to find a new home.
We are happy to report that it's now at 94.1 FM, now with a stronger signal than before. Now listeners have a live and local alternative once again - which is particularly pleasing 9-noon when both of the other Denver sports stations are carrying (gag) tape-delayed syndicated crap.
The new MHS lineup includes Goodman and Pritchard in morning drive, the Press Box pre-lunch, Irv and Joe (of course), Spano 2-4, Danny and Cello in afternoon drive, Renaud Notaro evenings and Denver Sports Nation radio late night.
Peyton Manning has a brother named Eli and, if we're lucky, an alter ego named Evil Peyton.
The quarterback was spotted at a charity event sporting this goatee, giving him a somewhat more ominous presence. Could this be the change needed to get the Broncos through the NFC West gauntlet next season?
Time will tell.
Even if Peyton looks a bit like an awkward middle schooler with his very first facial hair a little attitude can't hurt.
Did the Tampa Bay Buccaneers decide they would fare better as an Arena League team? I know they had a rough season in 2013, and are now rolling with a new coach and Mike Glennon as their signal caller, but what is up with this uniform change?
I was on board with the new helmet design, as they tweaked the logo just a bit and just made it bigger on the actual helmet. However, these new uniforms are pretty brutal. The numbers look alarm clock-y and there's only a hint of orange. It seems like they just keep changing and morphing their colors and logo to try to forget and erase the past.
I say they should come full circle and go back to the old orange and white with the swashbuckling afeminate pirate. It couldn't make it any worse, right?
"It’s embarrassing now to be a Nuggets fan and it’s made worse by what the Broncos did in the Super Bowl. Even Clevelanders must pity us right now. Other than the Avalanche, who compete in a sport that very few people care about, our franchises are really making the Rocky Mountain region look awful."

If you're going to play in today's NFL you had better know how to properly beat up a girl. CU defensive back Jeffrey Hall did his best to show the league that's he's ready over the weekend by choking out a female member of the track team.
According to TMZ Sports, Hall attacked the woman and then when the cops showed up he attacked her again.
Not only did Hall do an NFL-level job of strangling the female, he went "next level" by calling the Police "pigs" and accusing them of arresting him because he's black.
Police had to taze the 19-year old Hall not once - but twice - to subdue him.
Rumor has it the Ravens have already tagged him for the first round.
Deadspin love Javale McGee - and what’s not to love? The goofy seven footer has given the king of all sports blogs plenty to chuckle at during his years in the NBA. But, with Javale sidelined (and forced to play on Instagram) the site has found another Nugget to adore, Jan Vesely, Denver’s recent Czech-born acquisition out of Washington DC.
Deadspin panned Vesely this morning with a gif of the lanky Euro appearing to yank the basketball away from nobody. Deadspin’s headline: “Jan Vesely Appears to Believe he is Guarded By Ghosts”.
As long as the Nuggets keep on rolling the dice on the Association’s silliest physical freaks they should continue to find themselves on Deadspin’s home page - if not in the playoffs.
"With Both 104.3 the Fan and 102.3 ESPN airing nationally syndicated programming in the AM post-drive time slot (9-12), leaving it devoid of local voices, the brain trust at Mile High Sports Radio (FM93.7 AM1510) has moved quickly to shift its lineup in response."

"Do we really need another sports team in the Colorado landscape? We already have a healthy dose of teams to cheer for and spend our hard earned money on. "
"On Monday Scott Hastings, who's relationship with Brian Shaw seems to be a close one, and Drew Goodman, the hosts of the noon-3 show on 104.3 the Fan, interviewed Shaw. The radio segment proved to be the most revealing audio yet to surface in terms of who the new coach is, what he believes in and how he perceives the team he inherited from Karl."

"If the Rockies had stayed on course over the last couple of years, it’s still a stretch to say they would have supplanted the Broncos in popularity, but there certainly was a window they could have crawled through that would have at least given them a table near the Broncos in the VIP room."
"Mile High Sports will now have the only local sports talk show in the post-morning drive slot with the Brandon Spano show which recently moved over from night side"
