Huzzah! I got myself a steady radio gig – working with Renaud Notaro, filling in for Dr. Travis Heath each Thursday from 6-7 pm. Please tune in, won’t you?
Mile High Sports Radio is on your AM dial at 1510 and at FM 93.7. You may also stream the show online HERE.
Tonight I hope to discuss athletes as celebrities with Renaud, maybe a little Rapids, too. Who knows.
I am grateful to Mr. Notaro for the opportunity he is giving me to connect with readers and Fancast listeners via terrestrial radio.
"All professional athletes are players in a drama that expands far beyond the games. They are celebrities, characters in a play. Nowhere is this truer than in the NFL. "

In case you've never checked it out, Sports Illustrated has a really cool web site called the "SI Vault" where they post cool stuff like this ... the cover of their August 15, 1993 issue. Hard to believe this was thirty years ago.
The Patriots have had their fair share of problems during the off season, what with their stars getting hurt and killing guys and stuff. But they were going to be just fine. After all, they had Tom Brady.
Welp, so much for that. Brady got his surgically repaired knee rolled up on in practice today as shown here. He looks pretty badly hurt. Obviously, there's no official word yet as to the extent of Brady's injury. It'll probably be awhile until we know what's really up since they are, after all, the Patriots. But it does not look good.
If Brady missed significant time the Pats may miss the playoffs - and that would make the Broncos' path that much easier.
Von, buddy, we have to talk.
Look, you’re a big, bad man and one hell of a football player. Everybody knows that. But you can’t be running around ripping bong hits, tripping balls and failing to show up for court. That shit won’t fly when you are part of a team that’s supposed to be heading for a Championship in a league that is run with an iron fist.
At this point everyone is waiting for the other shoe to drop with you, Von. At this point how surprised to you think we would be if you ended up with a DUI or something? You obviously have not grasped the fact that you have to deal with life’s little responsibilities. Being able to get to the quarterback doesn’t exempt you from society’s basic rules.
This city wants to love you. You might be the most exciting defensive player we have had here since Al Wilson. Next to Peyton Manning you’re the best player on the team. Folks flock to Dove Valley wearing #58 jerseys just hoping to get a glimpse of you. But, as forgiving as fans can be, we all have our limits. These “incidents” are going to get old real quick.
Everybody is hoping that you aren’t suspended for four games for the, uh, drug stuff. But you aren’t helping your cause much, having it come out that you were arrested in January. Remember, it’s up to the League to be lenient or not to be. If you don’t think that this junk will factor into their decision you’re crazy.
Yes, you seem to keep your nose to the grindstone during football season, but you need to stick to the plan in the off-season, too. Maybe it would be best if you just didn’t leave the chicken farm.

"The Broncos open the season against the Ravens at home on September 5th. They must eviscerate the blackbirds to teach them a lesson about poaching our talent and killing our dreams. The vile savages must be put in their place."

Running back CJ Anderson who impressed Broncos Country last night with his take-no-prisoners style and gritty effort, is an undrafted guy who started his college career at tiny Laney College before transferring to Cal. In 2012 he averaged 6.5 yards per carry.
Here are some college highlights we though you might enjoy.
