Say what you will about Dexter Fowler and the deal the Rockies made to rid themselves of his contract, he was a very popular player for Colorado.
He Tweeted this picture of himself dressed as a Houston Astro a few minutes ago, along with this Tweet:
Sick photo of me in an Astros uniform... Shoutout to @d_moore55 for the photoshop skills
"That means more wins – and more touchdowns for one Peyton Manning, the number one with a bullet candidate for NFL MVP"

Reidy has been getting sacked lately in the South Stands annual NFL pickoff VS the spread. Can he pick himself up, dust himself off and get back in the game the way that our buddy Snyder has?
Here's how the fellows see it going down this week.

Our annual NFL pickoff VS the spread rolls on and our Buddy Snyder who got off to a rough start is beginning to make some serious noise. Over the past four weeks Snyder has elevated himself from a distant fourth place among our four pickers to a rising third. He now holds a five pick lead over John Reidy who is languishing.
In week thirteen Snyder went 10-6 against the spread, by far the best of all of us. I managed to go 8-8 while Scott Stafford and Reidy each produced 6-10 records.
For the season I still hold the lead with a record of 96-87-8, not quite good enough to beat the vig in Vegas. Scott is right behind me at 93-90-8. Snyder is has risen to 85-98-8 and Reidy has fallen to 80-103-8. That's not good.
In case you were unaware, the “Anchorman” franchise is returning with a new movie soon. Since the release of the new film has been terribly under-publicized, the producers sent their star character to Bristol for a little face time in the ESPN studios.
Here’s Ron Burgundy interviewing Peyton Manning.
"There are personalities in the Denver media that actually hold Colorado fans responsible for the inability of the Rockies to improve. If fans didn’t continue to attend games, they say, the Monforts would stop getting rich and would be forced to do things differently. Nothing short of a fan revolt can fix things."

The incredible Brandon Perna (@brandonperna) is back and he's not only drunk on red wine, he's high on a HUGE Broncos win over the Chiefs.
There's nothing better than gloating along with Brandon after a victory. We hope you have been enjoying his weekly videos as much as we have.
Columnist Dave Krieger left the Denver Post for a full-time gig at KOA back in 2012. It’s hard to blame him, considering the shakiness in the news biz these days. He’s still writing, though. Krieger keeps his own Wordpress site titled “Blitz Krieg” where he publishes one fantastic piece after another. Krieger is a hell of a columnist and he’s also a master interviewer. His talent for extracting interesting material from his subjects makes his blog one of the better reads out there when it comes to Denver sports. One interview subject topped them all, though. Krieger recently sat down for “breakfast with George Karl” and wound up penning an eye-opening piece based on the unfettered answers Karl gave to his questions.
There’s not much doubt that it was George’s time to go when he was canned in the wake of last season. Still, reading Krieger’s article makes it tough not to miss his forthrightness. In it Karl is brutally honest about the Nuggets then and now, Javale McGee, Andre Iguodala, ESPN and more. It’s the most insightful interview you’ll read all year.
Knowshon Moreno might be the emotional leader of the 2013 Denver Broncos. It's sure as heck not the Snowman who spends a fair amount of his time wearing a scowl these days.
Moreno is playing with heart - and with that comes powerful emotions. Those were on display yesterday during the National Anthem at Arrowhead, the stadium at which Moreno tore his ACL on November 13, 2011. He probably feared then that his career was over. Instead, he's among the league leaders in rushing in 2013.
It's still fun to poke a little fun at him - which the maker of this video has done nicely.
