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, hate college football. And I used to write a column for AV Club Denver but now am a full time contributor to this here site.

South Stands Denver Fancast Show 209

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.

My name is John and I'm a DFS addict

"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."

Exile on Blake Street

"...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."

"Both fanbases are obnoxious wankers that make ISIS look like a few rowdy lads you could have a beer with."

"The inability to run the ball lets defenses know exactly what you’re going to do next. It’s football 101 and is as obvious as a 6’4” man in a dress with an adam’s apple the size of a kiwi."

FantasyVille episode 1.7 (SSDFC 194)

John gets salty about trade slights and needs to expose the arrogance of lesser teams and their "demands."

We talk about how to keep players interested even when they're well out of it, and we talk so called medical "experts" on certain fantasy podcasts and what a load of shit they are.

We break down the nice looking games of the week, and who are "stay away" players that are proving us right. And then, what to do with Eric Decker. And then Colin gives some sage advice about the daily games which we redub "weekly games" and your regular leagues should be called "yearly games." But what do we know. Sex Dungeon.

As Seen on TV: Pull my pork please

"I get that some family members might come into your orbit with different tastes but these parents did such a poor job raising their kids, they bailed out on the Vikings and became Eagles, Cowboys, Steelers and Bengals fans? This is unacceptable."

"Did you notice the Stephen A. Smith Oberto Beef Jerky ads have started up again? I guess his ridiculous views on women and violence weren't enough to scare off the Oberto people, so one of the most repugnant assholes in sports media is back hawking dried beef."

As Seen on TV: flat stomachs and awful nerds

"Admitting this will not suddenly make me jump up and buy it. Stop admitting it. I liked Domino's better when they just lied to my face. Lie to use Dominos. Lie to us like the consumer zombies you think we are."
