"And trading Tulo will be about as popular as the Ubaldo, Chris Drury and Chauncey Billups trades combined, but it will be necessary if the team has any hopes to climb out of the poop filled sewer it currently resides."
What a shame that this part of our sports calendar is so fleeting. Baseball and Basketball are completely different - but they go great together.
Resident sports columnist John Reidy talks the Rockies and their bounty of fans this week in his column, Jock Itch at the AV Club Denver / Boulder:
"Still, one area of the Rockies’ most disappointing season to date has been nothing but sunshine and rainbows: the suckers who filled the seats at Coors Field."
"amidst one of the worst flame-outs in Denver sports history, the Rockies still enjoyed healthy crowds out at the ballpark. Attendance was actually up from any previous year out at Coors Field since 2001"

John is a gasbag. Literally. Avs expert J. Scott Moore weighs in on the upcoming season and give his take on various scoring odds. The Rockies fell flat on their faces, but since the Padres failed even more miserably it's o.k.
Juggalo or Raider fan is back but not before a stern resentment that it's "racial profiling." Tweep of the Week, and Scott won't give up who FakeDater is. Oh yeah Tom Tancredo eats Mexican babies.

I never really liked sports until I had a religious conversion when the Broncos lost to the 49ers in that one Super Bowl. Now I'm obsessed with all aspects of the Denver pro sports world. Oh yeah, I hate college football. It's crap. Talk to me on twitter @johnreidydenver
