We finally corner Denver Post Rockies beat writer Nick Groke (@NickGroke) and make him sit in the hot studio for a great show.
We talk Rockies, but focus on Coors Field and its affect on Denver's development into the hot spot it is today.
KBUD is covered. As is why there aren't any more Arby's pint glasses honoring our local sports teams. Colin asks John and Nick about beards for some reason.
Demaryius is talked to in depth and we discuss how much athletes are paid and the misconceptions fans have about it.
We finish it up with some questions for Nick about the Rockies broadcasters and then we nerd out on some Denver music stuff including the Warlock Pinchers. Check out Nick in the Denver Post as he covers YOUR Colorado Rockies.
A great return to form for the South Stands Denver fancast and in a new and improved studio!
We get right back into it complaining about Captain Bronco and even bring the Captain on to defend himself later in the show. Some old favorites reappear like the Horn of Plenty and Preppy Summer.
We talk Women's World Cup, the Nuggets and the woeful Rockies.
Colin details his fall at Coors Field and there's a poop story along with it.
Welcome back, we're thrilled you've joined us.
We're as rusty as a Tin Man in this horrific Colorado spring, but we managed to get a show in with the fantastic James Hernandez of 5280 Shirt Shop (@5280shirtshop).
We talk all kinds of Rockies, but we go in on Les Shapiro and his recent rant on lowly bloggers and spend a considerable amount of time dissecting why Root Sports sucks so bad.
There's a Tweep of the Week, a Raider or Juggalo and some sporadic NFL talk in between creaking bones that is our first show back in awhile. It gets better.
Thanks to James, our original sponsor and a true Denver sports fan for kicking off the summer season of the South Stands Denver Fancast.
Your newest Denver Bronco is defensive end Shane Ray out of Mizzou who set the school's single season sack record last season by devouring QBs. Here are his twelve sacks from last season. Opponents should be very very afraid.
Lots of folks were surprised when the Broncos traded up to snag Shane Ray with the 23rd pick but Colin Daniels wasn't. He predicted that they would do precisely that Thursday evening on the Renknowitall program on Mile High Sports. He and Renaud discussed several other topics as well including Cinco De Mayo, the big fight and hipsters. But Renaud wouldn't let a certain topic come up. This is a fun 15 minute segment from the show.
"After resting starters on Sunday, including Wilson Chandler, the Nuggets have announced that tonight against the Grizzlies they will be allowing Ty Lawson, Danillo Gallinari and Kenneth Faried all to rest. Rest? For what? This team isn't going to make the playoffs."

John Elway and Mike Shanahan were still chasing that elusive first ring the year that AM950 the Fan radio first went on air. The Avalanche had just moved to Denver. Bernie Bickerstaff was the head coach of the Nuggets and the Rockies were still waiting for their new ball park to be completed. 1995 was a transformative year in Denver sports and the Fan was there to chronicle what was happening as it happened. Today is the station's 20th birthday. It lit up the microphones on March 8, 1995. Since then a laundry list of hosts have come and gone from the station but one thing has remained a constant - the Fan is one of the best local sports stations in America.
As listeners and admirers we here at the South Stands wish the Fan a sincere "Happy Birthday" and a toast to 20 more years of great programming.
"Shaw's failings as the Nuggets head coach had a lot to do with his inexperience. That seems clear. And, unfortunately, that leaves the Nuggets in a position where they're not likely to take a chance on a first-time head coach with their next hire. It's unfortunate because that rules out interim coach Melvin Hunt"
