"Complaining is a pretty common pastime, especially in the social media world. You’ll encounter scant criticism of Altitude, however. The network does such a fine job that even snarky lurkers have little bad to say about it. That’s surprising considering the flogging that Root Sports Rocky Mountain, the network that carries the Rockies games seems to take."
The Denver Broncos have squirreled away their second AFC West Championship in a row with four games yet to play in the in the 2012 regular season. They're winning almost predictably. It's everything we can ask for, so why are we bored?
With the passing of Amendment 64 to the Colorado Constitution, the Sports world is wondering when athletes will take advantage of legalized marijuana. The reality is that, for athletes, nothing is going to change, and that's too bad.
With a new offer on the table from the NHL toward its locked-out players union there's new optimism that there will be a full season of pro hockey in 2012. Here's why that might not be such great news.
Denver Post sports columnist, Adrian Dater confused his readers mid-day with his Thursday column for the papers web site.
Dater, who's known more for his scorn that for his sweetness, expressed a little much-deserved gratitude to such Denver Sports luminaries as Jim Tracy, Peyton Manning and Stan Kroenke in the refreshingly un-snark-like piece.
He says "thank you" for some of the positive contributions these men - and others - make to our community. This column is a must-read. CLICK HERE.
Our old friend Ryan Boulding, the blogging mastermind behind Hockey on the Rocksis uber-pissed off at the league he follows so closely. He was good enough to let us re-post his brilliant rant, "How do you lock out the lockout?" It's a good one, you guys.
"Duchene may have been the future choice to wear the “C” when he was drafted, but his inconsistent play and trade friendly contract make for delicious possibilities on the open market."
When Andre Iguodala was introduced to the Denver Media yesterday, Denver's premier NBA blog was there. When will our NHL team allow access to the digital media?
A brand new Reidy column awaits you over at the AV Club Denver / Boulder. How about forgetting about those Broncos for a while and learning a thing or two about the 2012 Avalanche? Sound like a winner to us.
"Maybe it’s important to know what these guys look like, but they’re all nondescript white guys who could blend in at any bar or be members of Kings Of Leo."
Please join The Avalanche Guild, Mile High Hockey and the Burgundy Brigade in remembering three former Avalanche players who perrished in a plane crash in Russia.
A memorial is scheduled outside Pepsi Center beginning at 10am on Saturday 9/10. Sign posters and share memories of our fallen hockey heroes and send a message to their families that they will not be forgotten by the Colorado Avalanche fans.

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
