"It’s embarrassing now to be a Nuggets fan and it’s made worse by what the Broncos did in the Super Bowl. Even Clevelanders must pity us right now. Other than the Avalanche, who compete in a sport that very few people care about, our franchises are really making the Rocky Mountain region look awful."

If you're going to play in today's NFL you had better know how to properly beat up a girl. CU defensive back Jeffrey Hall did his best to show the league that's he's ready over the weekend by choking out a female member of the track team.
According to TMZ Sports, Hall attacked the woman and then when the cops showed up he attacked her again.
Not only did Hall do an NFL-level job of strangling the female, he went "next level" by calling the Police "pigs" and accusing them of arresting him because he's black.
Police had to taze the 19-year old Hall not once - but twice - to subdue him.
Rumor has it the Ravens have already tagged him for the first round.
Deadspin love Javale McGee - and what’s not to love? The goofy seven footer has given the king of all sports blogs plenty to chuckle at during his years in the NBA. But, with Javale sidelined (and forced to play on Instagram) the site has found another Nugget to adore, Jan Vesely, Denver’s recent Czech-born acquisition out of Washington DC.
Deadspin panned Vesely this morning with a gif of the lanky Euro appearing to yank the basketball away from nobody. Deadspin’s headline: “Jan Vesely Appears to Believe he is Guarded By Ghosts”.
As long as the Nuggets keep on rolling the dice on the Association’s silliest physical freaks they should continue to find themselves on Deadspin’s home page - if not in the playoffs.
"With Both 104.3 the Fan and 102.3 ESPN airing nationally syndicated programming in the AM post-drive time slot (9-12), leaving it devoid of local voices, the brain trust at Mile High Sports Radio (FM93.7 AM1510) has moved quickly to shift its lineup in response."

"On Monday Scott Hastings, who's relationship with Brian Shaw seems to be a close one, and Drew Goodman, the hosts of the noon-3 show on 104.3 the Fan, interviewed Shaw. The radio segment proved to be the most revealing audio yet to surface in terms of who the new coach is, what he believes in and how he perceives the team he inherited from Karl."

"He reportedly went so far as to say he “hated” the Nuggets and that he refused to suit up for the team. So what about Brian Shaw’s methods did Miller find so detestable and what could fans learn about the Nuggets from his behavior?"

The NBA trade deadline is noon Thursday (that’s tomorrow!) so teams are scrambling to get their pieces in place – either in the interest of making stretch runs or to eliminate bad contracts and cancerous jackasses like Andre Miller.
According to Basketball Insiders, my favorite resource at the moment for NBA scuttlebutt, Andre wants to be traded to Minnesota. Rumor has it that the Nuggets have been offered a deal that would send the embattled whiny jerk to the Timberwolves in a one-for-one for point guard JJ Barea. The same report claims that the Nuggets – are you ready for this? – AREN’T INTERESTED.
Denver had better find some way to rid themselves of Miller before the deadline, otherwise they will have to continue to pay him not to play.
The new lineup for CBS' NFL Today pre-game program for the coming season has been unveiled and the show will no longer feature either Dan Marino or Shannon Sharpe.
CBS' crew next year will be James Brown, Tony Gonzalez, Boomer Esiason and Bill Cowher. That's right, a former Chiefs tight end (turned Falcon) displaces a former Broncos tight end (turned Raven). This is the biggest slap in the face to Broncos fans since the game which shal not be named.
As a commentator Sharpe wasn't everybody's cup of tea, popular as he might have been among Denver fans. Also, Sharpe had made life tough for his producers in the past, when accusations of stalking, rape and domestic violence were levied against him. The network looked the other way at the time but these things do tend to catch up to guys eventually.
Gonzolez remains an angel in the eyes of the media.
In rooting on USA hockey in this morning's clash against the Russian squad, Avalanche fans might have had a conflict. Luckily, Seymon Varlamov, Colorado's star goalkeeper, was not in net for the bad guys so everyone was able to root on team USA without concern for the emotional impact Russia's loss might have had on "Varly".
Sergei Bobrovsky, who plays for Columbus, was in goal instead. TJ Oshie of the Blues knocked down four of his six shootout goals in toppling "Bob-Rov" and causing Vladamir Putin to expressionlessly, wordlessly, turn and walk out of his luxury box.
