It's one of those intimate shows with just Colin and John and we go deep into life, sports, homelessness and just about everything else. Take the journey with us will you?

We spend the whole first segment talking local sports media, radio, and print. Did we talk about you? Probably. And John admits something about his sports talk radio consumption. It's heavy.

Then we spend the whole second quarter talking about genitals and the Rockies. One is stinkier than the other.

Then we spend the whole third quarter talking about the homeless. Hobo costumes are broached.

But then we get back to it and hit some heavy duty Broncos and preview the Pats game and why a loss won't be the worst thing. We touch on a some fantasy implications with our FantasyVille preview. We play "Did They Tweet It?" and John does well and not because he's the only player. Plus we talk about the great Jash McDoognals and his wonderful contributions to #BroncoNation. #SoicherNation

It was not a pretty week in our season long 10K NFLwager-off. In fact, week eight was a bloodbath. Even our newest competitor got slain by the lines this week - and we're not even paying an imaginary vig!!

Check out how badly we got pummeled this week. Click the read more link below.

 

Champ must retire a Bronco

Written by Tuesday, 28 October 2014 14:12

We're not normally the pomp and circumstance types around here but on this issue we agree - Champ Bailey, who announced his retirement from the NFL today despite "interest from a couple teams" in his services, should be signed to a one-day contract so that he may retire a Denver Bronco.

Bailey was drafted by the Washington dead Indians in 1999 and traded to Denver in 2004 for running back Clinton what's-his-name. The legendary corner went to twelve Pro-Bowls in fifteen seasons - primarily as a Bronco. 

Champ will go down in Denver lore as one of the finest defensive players ever to don the Orange and Blue. 

"McDaniels, for all his glaring faults, realized that Cutler would never amount to the quarterback we all expected him to be when Denver moved up to draft him in the first round all those years ago. He foresaw a long, fruitless career for Cutler and he made sure that it didn't play out in Denver."

A new wagerer joins our contest this week in Dan Fellman of Mile High Sports who opens with a $5,000 balance. Spano is holding on to his bankroll (barely) and still only two of us are in the black. How will our bettors fare in week 8?

The tradition continues as we do a live to tape podcast while the Broncos play the Chargers on a Thursday night. Legends have been created with these podcasts and while this show is chock full of hilarious anecdotes about Rob Halford, the game was generally boring so there weren't many screaming moments to capture.

Still, with special guest Renaud Notaro (@Renknowitall), there were PLENTY of laughs. Too numerous to mention, you'll just have to listen and you will because none other than Denver media super star Krissi Bex (@krissibex) bestows her prescence upon us for a good 20-30 minutes. It's the Chargers show. Anything can happen and you will be disgusted at least.

Abandon all hope ye Nuggets fans

Written by Tuesday, 21 October 2014 15:02

"It's nearly impossible to get excited for the upcoming basketball season unless you're in one of the few cities that houses a team with a legitimate shot - and the Nuggets aren't in a position for that."

What a week for the Broncos. What a week in the NFL. And, for the competitors in our season-long $10,000 NFL wager-off it was quite a week as well. Our leader had a tough week and all our losers at least broke even. There's a new leader in the clubhouse!

Yesterday evening's trouncing of the 'Niners at home by the Broncos and Peyton Manning's smashing of Brett Favre's TD record was as exciting to see as anything the Broncos have accomplished in the modern era and, as always, many of us watched together - and commented on Twitter. Prepare yourself for the best Tweetrospective ever. Local and National media as well as wacky fans like you are highlighted. Are your Tweets in there?

Broncos: It can no longer be all about Peyton

Written by Monday, 20 October 2014 11:25

Manning has brought Denver a lot of wins and promises to deliver many more before he rides off into the sunset. But, as his third spectacular statistical season unfolds and the records keep on falling, it’s time for Manning’s focus to turn toward seeing that the Broncos are rewarded with what they paid him for - a Super Bowl championship.
