Over the past several weeks the Denver Post's Adrian Dater and Channel 4 anchor Gary Miller have slung what seem to have been some good natured insults at one another over Twitter. As their "beef" progresses it's tough not to wonder if there's some legitimate bad blood between them.

Discovering Dater

Honestly, I never read a whole lot of NHL coverage in the Denver Post. Bits and pieces here and there, I guess. I was familiar with the work of Denver Post Avalanche beat writer, Adrian Dater, but perhaps not as much as I am now that the NHL is locked out - and there's not any hockey to write about.

In the dearth, Dater's been putting himself to use in other ways. I recently commented on an article Dater wrote for the Denver Post's "Lunch Special" section in which he expressed his gratitude toward various personalities within the Denver Sports scene. Dater, whos' reputation is that of an immensely tall curmudgeon, flashed his brilliance in that item in a way that I had not seen before. For today's "Lunch Special" feature, he observed that Denver is a far friendlier place when the Broncos are winning. He describes the difference in a cheeky way: "Whenever I've forgotten to turn off my cellphone ringer in the library of late, patrons have started bobbing their heads to my Justin Bieber ringtone on 10. It's nice to share in a communal moment of goodwill like that."

Without his assigned hockey tasks to keep him occupied, Dater's found fascinating and creative new ways to contribute to his paper. I have rather enjoyed reading "lockout Dater". In a way I feel like I am just now discovering him. He's been in town as long as the Avalanche have, but he has recently been writing on subjects that I find far more captivating. And he seems to be having fun.

Whenever I've forgotten to turn off my cellphone ringer in the library of late, patrons have started bobbing their heads to my Justin Bieber ringtone on 10. It's nice to share in a communal moment of goodwill like that.

Adrian Dater heaps praise in column

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.
