I never really liked sports until I had a religious conversion when the Broncos lost to the 49ers in that one Super Bowl. Now I'm obsessed with all aspects of the Denver pro sports world. Oh yeah, hate college football. And I used to write a column for AV Club Denver but now am a full time contributor to this here site.

Fantasy Life ep 1

Life is just a fantasy, can you live the fantasy life? We ask this very important question in the debut of our new show with special guest @AdamKinneyRadio. 

This is a different kind of fantasy show that will get you thinking beyond the x's and o's and about the deeper meaning of fantasy sports.

South Stands Denver Fancast Show 225

Great balls of fire! The studio was hot tonight, in temperature and with the hot talk.

We have the great Adam Kinney (@adamkinneyradio) on and he informs us he's now a member of the "Five Timer Club" and we declare him the Alec Baldwin of the Fancast.

We talk Denver media, the Rockies and we get deep into some Broncos talk including the naming rights and what it's like at the media BBQ at Dove Valley. 

A great Tweep of the Week and we talk Training Camp and ask why someone would bake in the sun watching practice. 

Adam is one of the best talents in Denver and we can't wait for him to be a sixth timer soon.

FantasyVille episode 2.1

FantasyVille season two starts off with a bang and John finally admits to Colin that he has become a DFS junkie over the last year.

A great discussion of all things fantasy, take a trip to FantastyVille and stay awhile...until the cops come and roust you from where you're squatting.

My name is John and I'm a DFS addict

"Like someone who has only eaten Salisbury steak their whole life, and then being introduced to prime rib, the second I stuck my fork into DFS, I realized what I was missing."

Exile on Blake Street

"...A Blake Street Perestroika of sorts, that will help mend the fences of a problematic relationship between ownership and fans. I want to love the Rockies, but this kind of vindictiveness makes it difficult to say the least."

"Both fanbases are obnoxious wankers that make ISIS look like a few rowdy lads you could have a beer with."

"The inability to run the ball lets defenses know exactly what you’re going to do next. It’s football 101 and is as obvious as a 6’4” man in a dress with an adam’s apple the size of a kiwi."

FantasyVille episode 1.7 (SSDFC 194)

John gets salty about trade slights and needs to expose the arrogance of lesser teams and their "demands."

We talk about how to keep players interested even when they're well out of it, and we talk so called medical "experts" on certain fantasy podcasts and what a load of shit they are.

We break down the nice looking games of the week, and who are "stay away" players that are proving us right. And then, what to do with Eric Decker. And then Colin gives some sage advice about the daily games which we redub "weekly games" and your regular leagues should be called "yearly games." But what do we know. Sex Dungeon.

Boycottin' #RockiesTown

"The Monforts won't sell, but you don't have to buy."

As Seen on TV: Pull my pork please

"I get that some family members might come into your orbit with different tastes but these parents did such a poor job raising their kids, they bailed out on the Vikings and became Eagles, Cowboys, Steelers and Bengals fans? This is unacceptable."
