A rare off night frees up the stars of 104.3 the Fan's Late Night show, Sean Drotar (@sdrotar) and Ryan Edwards (@ryanedwards1043) who sit in the bunker for the first time and endure the South Stands Denver Fancast like champs.

We talk about how the green beer of St. Patrick's Day brings forth talk about green poop created from the fabled Star Trek bar in Vegas. Drotar looks like Halford.

Then we propose a new game called "Let's get out the black light" which is played in the new bunker because it used to be a gay gym. Which leads into how Drotar has never been to the Party Deck and how he should put on a speedo, grease himself up and he watch baseball unimpeded.

Then we talk about The Weed Deck and the future of Coors Field.

We give you the promised 10% with some hot Nuggets and Broncos talk right at the end. Check out the Fan Late Night on 104.3 weeknights from 9-midnight. Get drunk and call them.

My name is John and I'm a DFS addict

Written by Tuesday, 17 March 2015 16:06

"Like someone who has only eaten Salisbury steak their whole life, and then being introduced to prime rib, the second I stuck my fork into DFS, I realized what I was missing."

"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"

"It’s a team without an identity. It’s a team that says it wants to win but doesn’t appear to know how to. It’s a team for whom relative success (under Karl) wasn’t enough. It’s a team that wants to get to the next level but isn’t capable of it because the sickness starts at the top."

Exile on Blake Street

Written by Monday, 02 March 2015 06:24

"...A Blake Street Perestroika of sorts, that will help mend the fences of a problematic relationship between ownership and fans. I want to love the Rockies, but this kind of vindictiveness makes it difficult to say the least."

"I scored free tickets. But I still spent $15 to park, $5 on a hot dog, $9 for loaded tots and $21 on three warm Coors Lights. That’s a total of $50 I dropped attending a free basketball game."

Assuming Adrian Wojnarowski is on his game today the way he normally is Denver fans can finally take a deep breath of fresh clean Javale-free Rocky Mountain air. The clown prince of basketball has reportedly been shipped along with a first-round pick to Philadelphia. 

All the Nuggets get out of the deal presumably is the rights to draft a Turkish center. They do love their big Euros, don't they? It matters not what comes back in the deal, though. Just the fact that they found a trade partner willing to absorb their $12M albatross is reason enough to be giddy. McGee is a joke and he made the Nuggets look even dumber than they actually are. He was easily the hardest piece to rid themselves of so it doesn't really matter what they had to do. He's gone.

Our good buddy, Denver Stiffs writer, Colorado Sports Guy and super stylish dude, Jeff Morton joins us for a great pod on the Nuggets, the Broncos and just about everything in between.

Jeff has a lot of insight into the Nuggets woes and he spills those details and what it's like to be around the team as a Denver Stiffs writer. Then we get into the Julius Thomas fiasco, Spano's involvment and how Elway knocked Jeff down as a child.

There's a gay music quiz and we pepper Jeff with questions about gay athletes. Whenver Morton is on, it gets real and this show was no different. Follow him on twitter @jmorton78 and read his excellent work over at DenverStiffs.com.

"It's hard to say whether the Nuggets' roster is a terrible fir for Shaw or whether Shaw is a terrible NBA coach but team brass seems to assume the former. They are vocally supporting Shaw and his vision for the Nuggets and they finally seem ready to do something they never do - blow up the team."
