The Fray performed the national anthem at the NCAA championship last night, and like most songs the boys cover, they made it their own. There was nothing inherently wrong with their performance, except that, well, if you're a purist, there was everything wrong with their performance. Really, is it t ... More >>
On Saturday night, the CU Buffs played pretty much the same game as in their previous two wins: a very good first thirty minutes, an iffy last ten. But because they didn't have a big lead this time, they fell to the Baylor Bears 80-63 in the NCAA men's basketball tourney. The loss denied them a trip ... More >>
Devon Beitzel.There were a slew of bracket-busting upsets on the real day one of the NCAA men's basketball tournament -- damn you, Louisville! -- but the University of Northern Colorado Bears weren't part of one. UNC fell to San Diego State 68-50 in their first Big Dance foray. But through tw ... More >>

A win over Montana ton ... More >>
We confess. We've been paying so much attention to the CU Buffs' chances of taking part in March Madness that we've given short shrift to the University of Northern Colorado Bears. UNC's had a mighty impressive season -- one that's earned the squad a marginally easier route to the Big Dance ... More >>
Rory O' Farrell is a mixed martial arts prizefighter, but with his matching shamrock chest tattoos and a red chin-strap, he'd look just as at home as an extra in a Dropkick Murphys video as he does in an MMA ring. O' Farrell fights tomorrow night at Kick Down 87 for the Light Heavyweight Titl ... More >>
A few days ago, I saw grown men cry. But no one's feelings were hurt, and we weren't even watching The Notebook. No, we were suffering the wrath of the hot wings from Skinny Jay's, located at 800 28th Street, in the Outlook Hotel in Boulder. These are crispy little appendages of unrelenting do ... More >>
Legendary Tennessee coach Pat Summitt. Although most fans who fill out brackets during NCAA basketball tournament season only focus on the men's teams, the contest through the Archdiocese of Denver that my daughter Lora and I have participated in during recent years gives the women equal billing.
