Among the most unfortunate developments of the Internet Age is the Sports Team Tribute Song, wherein a musically disinclined fan -- often a wannabe rapper with a fondness for the letter "z" -- posts a song on YouTube about the awesomeness of his favorite sports team. Assuming, for the sake ... More >>
Mike Shanahan is a wanted man.It only took a day for evidence that speculation about Mike Shanahan following the doomed Dan Hawkins as head coach for CU to crumble. NFL.com's Vic Carucci reports that Shanny's likely to talk next week with the braintrust of the Buffalo Bills, who just sacked ... More >>
Strangely (or maybe not so strangely), the coach hasn't changed much since high school.Here's some local bloggery to peruse. Colin over at South Stands Denver is a little skittish about Josh McDaniels benching o-lineman Ben Hamilton in favor of another former New England Patriot. But if Josh ... More >>
Sports talk shows and blogs blew up over the weekend after cameras spied New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez eating a hot dog on the sidelines during a TV time out. Some critics have said Sanchez, who apologized after the game for some reason, was showing up the pathetic Oakland Raiders, w ... More >>
Even these guys probably doubted McDaniels.Okay, you and me, and most of the local media, and all of the national media -- everyone, really, except this guy. We read his age, and we heard the lip-smacking and the no-commenting, and we saw all the former Patriots showing up in Dove Valley, an ... More >>
"I fuckin' told you so."OK, so the excessive fist pumping in the exact location of 47 camera men was a little odd, but other than that, let's see ... - He traded a sore-losing, sore-winning, sour-faced quarterback for one who is calm (and even jovial) under pressure, rarely makes mistakes ...

Ugly-ass striped socks were de rigeur for fashion-unconscious fans.I'm not generally in favor of so-called NFL "legacy" games, in which teams are required to wear their hideous and humiliating uniforms of yore and the fans are barraged with waves of schlock and nostalgia: old geezers from gol ...

Homer Duggins is the biggest sports fan in Denver and Westword's gambling, uh, "expert." Read his dispatches every Friday in the Latest Word sports section. What's that noise?

David Harris.Fit-throwing, currently suspended Broncos receiver Brandon Marshall -- our most recent Shmuck of the Week -- is back in the news again, although not over accusations of slapping anyone around, surprisingly enough.

Back in March, at the height of Jay Cutler's bitchfest, I laid out the five teams to which I hoped Culter would get traded -- places I was sure he would hate, and places where I hoped he would fail. I'm a sadistic, juvenile little man like that. The fallout, of course, was grave: The entire ... More >>
A Flickr photoBuffalo: It has more than nine bars. Trust me. So I wrote a little ditty yesterday about cities to which I'd like to see Jay Cutler get traded, because I think Jay Cutler needs to learn a little lesson about the grass and its greenness. He thinks it's greener on the other side. I thin ... More >>
Jay Cutler: Buffalo Bill? So Jay Cutler's (probably) getting traded. Fine by me. He's a talented guy, sure, and he's got an arm like a diesel-powered T-shirt gun. But I like my quarterbacks savvy and cerebral and not so damn pouty when things go awry. And while Josh McDaniels has proven to be just ... More >>
On ESPN radio (1600 AM) this morning, host Colin Cowherd veered into an interesting discussion about the best coaching jobs in college and pro football.

Thanks to the way the Broncos handled the New York Jets yesterday, you can bet we'll be hearing plenty of fans espousing the most popular, and positive, theory to explain the squad's inexplicable season to date: The team plays up to, or down to, the level of its opponents.
