Together, Smith, chief inspector for the state of Nevada LP-Gas Board, and DaveX, licensed California pyrotechnic operator, saw a need for safety education in ... More >>
Denver blog posts are happy simply to be nominated. Big Media's Jason Salzman wonders if Cory Gardner is justifying Mike Coffman's birther comments even as he praises him for apologizing about them. Purple Row's Rox Girl on the Oakland A's sweep of the Rockies (at home!), continuing the rain of ba ... More >>
Among other talents, porn star Tori Black is known for, well, blowing, as evidenced by her win in the Best Oral Sex Scene category at the 2011 AVN Awards. As such, she'd fit in perfectly on the Colorado Rockies pitching staff, which is also expert at blowing...leads, as happened again in an agonizin ... More >>
Huston Street heads toward his teammates after finishing off the Phils last night. Even after the Wacky Wednesday loss in game one of their playoff series against the Philllies, the Rockies still had a chance to regain home-field advantage -- and they managed to do so with a little help from ...

Aaron Cook. Fears that the Colorado Rockies might turn their win streak upside down after losing for the first time in twelve games to the Tampa Bay Rays on June 16 proved unfounded in a major (league) way. The next day, the team began a stretch of fourteen games in fifteen days, with nine of those ... More >>
As pointed out in a blog yesterday, the Colorado Rockies need stability more than a franchise-record win streak -- and it's a good thing, since the Rocks were clubbed to death in a 12-4 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays last night, halting them one victory short of a best-ever twelve triumphs in a row. ...

Sarcasm drips from the headline on Purple Row, a website devoted to the Colorado Rockies. It reads: "Rockies Find New Ways to Keep the Streak Alive; Now 0-7." Yep, the Rockies are zilch-for-2009. In a different blog, our Purple Row friends advise Rockies fans not to panic yet, and even trot out t ... More >>
Where will Juan Pierre be listed? Thanks to the Colorado Rockies' decision to send Matt Holliday to the Oakland A's for three players who don't appear to equal the sum of his parts (see "Matt Holliday and the Rockies' Case of Premature Ejaculation" for details), fans will soon have to suffer throu ...

The farewell-to-Matt-Holliday image from the Colorado Rockies' website. Tough to shake the sense that the Colorado Rockies shot their wad too soon when it comes to Matt Holliday, who the team traded to Oakland for pitchers Greg Smith and Huston Street and outfielder Carlos Gonzalez. Let's take it ... More >>
Bronco Mike Leach talks with Raiders coach Lane Kiffin during pre-game. Against his better judgment, Joe Tone decided to live-blog last night's Broncos' season opener against the Raiders, officially sealing his revirgination and prompting his mother to start making room for him in the basement. He ... More >>
It's a dirty business. (Note: Joe Tone live blogged the snot out of last night's Broncos-Raiders game, and would love if someone actually read it.) As I watched the Broncos dismantle the Raiders last night, one recurring thought kept bull-dozing my mind: Who the shit is Eddie Royal and is he sti ... More >>
It's been months since the Colorado Rockies appeared near the top of sports sections anywhere other than in Denver -- and oftentimes not here, either, given the team's season-long woes. That changed on July 9, but not because of anything the Rockies did -- other than losing 7-3 to the Milwaukee Brew ... More >>
