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.

The competition is heating up in our season-long $10K NFL wager-off.  Here's how the busier of our wagerers see it going down.

"there's a little part of every Broncos fan that is looking forward to number 18 retiring so that you people will finally go away."

Five of us are competing this season in a $10K season-long NFL wager-off. Each week each player may put between 10% and 50% of his bankroll into play, betting lines, over / unders, even two and three bet parlays. The format has worked out better for some competitors than for others. After six NFL weekends two of our bettors are in the black and three are in the red - one more badly than the others. Which of our prognosticators has almost whiffed his wad away?

"NFL Pink" is pretty much bullshit

Written by Friday, 10 October 2014 13:37

"Pink is OK matched with Colts blue and white but it's absolutely brutal looking next to Bengals orange. Televisions are really, really good now and the visual assault the NFL launches on fans this time of year is almost too much to take. What makes it even worse is knowing that the NFL's "pink October" campaign is pretty much bullshit."

Deadspin detailed Adrian Dater's Twitter misdoings

Written by Wednesday, 08 October 2014 15:45

I've been a little more out of the loop lately than I like to be when it comes to the goings on amongst members of the Denver sports media. As such I late to learn that Adrian Dater had been suspended by the Denver Post for his behavior in social media on Monday Night. I have since put together bits and pieces but luckily Deadspin dredged up all of the messiness.

After reading their piece today I totally understand why the paper was forced to shut down its beat writer for the first two weeks of the NHL season. 

I generally support using words like "pussy" and telling PC assholes to go fuck themselves but I am not being paid a salary by an outlet like the Post. Dater clearly screwed the pooch on this one and far overstepped his bounds. It's not all that surprising since he is known as sort of a hot head but it is disappointing. Dater is lucky he wasnt fired.

Read the Deadspin piece here.

"You're a monster if you don't have a few tears when Rudy finally gets in the game at the end of the movie. (Spoiler alert)"

It's already week five and our intreped NFL gamblers are feeling the heat in our $10,000 NFL wager-off. This week one or two of them went for broke on a road favorite ...in prime time ... on Sunday night and got bitten badly.

We finally saw the Broncos we signed up for on Sunday. Despite continued struggles in the running game it was a record breaking day for the offense and the defense gave us a thrill we haven't had in two years. This was a fun one to watch - and to see unfold on Twitter. From the originators of the Tweetcap we bring you the week five #Tweetrospective. Is your Tweet in there?

One should admire Brandon Spano's confidence. Not only did the boastful radio host make the Bengals -1 @ Patriots his "lock of the week" in picking NFL games versus the spread last week, he told his listeners that if the Patriots were to beat the Cincy squad that he would get a Patriots tattoo on his rear end.

Spano made this assurance not once but several times, including during Saturday morning's "Mile High Sports Magazine Show" on 104.3 the Fan. Spano doubtlessly had his largest audience of the week for that broadcast so his promise to scar his body in deference to Belichick and Brady rang out wide and far.

Now we wait to find out if Brandon Spano is a man of his word or just the kind of guy who will say stuff just to say stuff. Assuming he is going to go through with the tatting, we recommend something about like this:
