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.
We finally corner Denver Post Rockies beat writer Nick Groke (@NickGroke) and make him sit in the hot studio for a great show.
We talk Rockies, but focus on Coors Field and its affect on Denver's development into the hot spot it is today.
KBUD is covered. As is why there aren't any more Arby's pint glasses honoring our local sports teams. Colin asks John and Nick about beards for some reason.
Demaryius is talked to in depth and we discuss how much athletes are paid and the misconceptions fans have about it.
We finish it up with some questions for Nick about the Rockies broadcasters and then we nerd out on some Denver music stuff including the Warlock Pinchers. Check out Nick in the Denver Post as he covers YOUR Colorado Rockies.
A great return to form for the South Stands Denver fancast and in a new and improved studio!
We get right back into it complaining about Captain Bronco and even bring the Captain on to defend himself later in the show. Some old favorites reappear like the Horn of Plenty and Preppy Summer.
We talk Women's World Cup, the Nuggets and the woeful Rockies.
Colin details his fall at Coors Field and there's a poop story along with it.
Welcome back, we're thrilled you've joined us.
"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."
"...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."
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.
"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."
"Did you notice the Stephen A. Smith Oberto Beef Jerky ads have started up again? I guess his ridiculous views on women and violence weren't enough to scare off the Oberto people, so one of the most repugnant assholes in sports media is back hawking dried beef."
