The always curly and terminally smiley Susie Wargin is vacating the media planet to dedicate herself to selling real estate according to Joanne Ostrow of the Denver Post. It means one less sports MILF at 9 News.

Wargin's mother has been a real estate agent for nearly 40 years and the time has come for Susie to follow in her footsteps. She'll be missed, not only only in her role as morning sports anchor for the local NBC affiliate but as a longtime presence in Denver radio as well. She started her media career with KBPI, has worked for KOA and started with 9 News as a middle-aged intern in 2001. She's been a sports anchor at 9 since 2004 according to the bio at her personal web site. 

We'll miss Wargin's talent as well as her iconic hair and sculpted arms.

"Then the Broncos get a bye. A miserable, crummy, week four bye. It'll give them a chance to lick their fresh wounds (Seahawk talon marks) which is nice but it also leaves them staring at 13 more tilts with hardy a rest. The scheduling gods did Denver no favors here."

In ten minutes this will be old news. Thanks to Vic Lombardi and the magic of Twitter we have it now.

If you haven't heard by now, the Broncos are kicking off the Sunday Night Football schedule this season in a showdown with the Colts at Mile High. It should be exciting. There's no question that NBC will make a pretty big deal about Peyton Manning's relationship with the Colts organization. But will the network equate Manning to a superhuman being or spirit worshiped as having power over nature or human fortunes?

That's what Mike Klis did today.

In this post announcing the big Sunday night opener Klis refers to Manning as God - with a capital "G" - not once, but twice. 

Now, number 18 is certainly a very special football player but is he really the eternal being who created and preserves the world?

It's pretty offensive to Christians - and people of most faiths for that matter - to refer to a football player as any god, much less THE God. It's kind of like using a reference to war in describing sports only far, far worse.

Peyton Manning was a hero in Indianapolis. He's a hero here (kind of). What he's not is the all-being master of time space and dimension.

"Inspired by the ever studious Sandy Clough from 104.3 the Fan, who often takes time to read the local newspapers covering Colorado opponents, I decided to take a look at the comments sections below articles on the Cooke hit at both the Minneapolis Star Tribune's web site and the SB Nation Wild blog "Hockey Wilderness" to see how Minny fans were reacting."

"F*ck Brooklyn"

That's the now famous refrain that our old Pal Masai Ujiri barked at a Raptors fan rally. Masai's Toronto club is poised to take on the Brooklyn Nets in the first round of the Eastern Conference Playoffs.

"For all I know there are hundreds of masterful announcers all over this great land who can keep fans informed and excited and paint a picture of a hockey game as it's moving at a frenetic pace. But I simply cannot imagine that there's a single one better than Marc Moser."

As Paul Stastny scored the winning overtime goal in last night's exciting Avalanche victory over the Wild one elated fan looked familiar banging on the glass and cheering on the Colorado squad. None other than Nuggets' point guard Ty Lawson was in the Can to watch the game and you can see by the look on his face that he was enjoying the playoff atmosphere. Perhaps he'll enjoy that with the Nuggets again one day soon, but for now it's neat to see him there supporting the ice hockey club.
