I wasn't listening to the Press Box show on Mile High Sports radio this morning as I normally do for one really simple reason: the signal was down when I tried to tune the station in. It seems to happen about once a month in the morning that MHS' signal will be nothing but static. I guess I missed out on the real static, though. Once the signal returned Press Box co-host Oren Lomena said "Denver's not a good sports town, it's a bandwagon sports town."

I know trolling and that's some good trolling.

Not surprisingly, Lomena took a beating on Twitter by 50 or so not-so-happy Denver fans. Personally, I think Denver is a great sports town. But I can see where Lomena was coming from. We tend to be front-runners where every team but the Broncos is concerned. But who can blame us. Denver is a beatiful place and we have lots to do here. Teams kind of have to "earn" good attendence. This isn't some filthy East Coast city where people will show up to watch a team like the Knicks just because there's nothing better to do. We will respond to success.

A bandwagon sports town? That would be Seattle, Mr. Lomena. But nice job firing up Broncos Country.

What is the NFL about? It's not about the misdeeds of its players. It's not about money (well, yes it is). It's about this. What a wonderfully timed emotional display from two awesome performers on Thursday Night Football.

Your Denver Sports #TBT: Dan Issel seals his fate

Issel's race-laden insult "go have another beer you drunk mothe****ing Mexican " resulted in his dism"issel" days later.

"Once vibrant, downtown Colorado Springs is a sad wasteland now. Development has been pushed east and the heart of the city has been left to wither."

How not to get bitten by daily fantasy sports

"First of all, realize that the inevitable 100% deposit bonus you'll be taking advantage of is the equivalent of that first line of coke you sniffed at the kegger. It’s only free until you hock your microwave to get more of it."

"This synopsis of what I think might have happened is completely bereft of established fact and is no way intended to be seen as a news story. It’s entirely speculative."
