As a lifelong Broncos fan, I am typically paranoid as hell about the team -- fearful that the brighter the spotlight, the more likely the squad is to screw up in it for all the world to see. And there were certainly some ugly moments during last night's kickoff to the NFL season against the Super Bo ... More >>
Chad Kultgen is the epitome of everything that is lewd in this world. His work is dirty, offensive and polarizing (see: The Average American Male). He makes a living transcribing explicit sexual fantasies with the women who frequent your local fitness center, and could give a rat's ass about how mar ... More >>
Watching Ray Lewis acting like the king of the world after playing a thoroughly ordinary game, and seeing Joe Fluke-o named MVP after the Baltimore Ravens' Super Bowl victory yesterday was enough to make me nearly throw up my seven-layer dip. Fortunately, Las Vegas sports books give our Denver Bronc ... More >>
My disdain for American football knows no bounds, and I don't believe in wasting my Sundays watching testosterone-addled meatheads run up and down a field with the hopes of placing a ball. In honor of yesterday's Super Bowl game -- as well as all the attendant hoopla -- I created a poem that follows ... More >>
Mayor Michael Hancock delayed paying off a wager with Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake because of an injury. The terms? If the Broncos lost to the Ravens (which they did), Hancock would send a box of steaks to Maryland aaaand do the Ray Lewis dance. Well, the mayor is healed and has made goo ... More >>
The first time John Oliver agreed to do an interview with Westword, Michael Roberts noted the utter futility of pointing out when either party -- but mostly the "humble scribe" -- laughed due to the ubiquitous chortles throughout. Five years later, Humble Scribe No. 2 (aka, yours truly), could have ... More >>
Yee-haw! While galleries across the country have had a tough time in recent years, the Coors Western Art Show at the National Western Stock Show Complex got off to a fast gallop last week, selling more than $800,000 worth of art at the Red Carpet Reception three days before the show officially opene ...

Before Saturday's Broncos-Ravens playoff game, Denver Mayor Michael Hancock made a friendly wager with Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake. If Denver won, Rawlings-Blake promised to send a platter of broiled crab cakes. If Baltimore won, Hancock agreed to mail a box of dry-aged "cowboy cut" rib ... More >>
As the Broncos and the Ravens gear up to face off this Saturday, trying to extend their seasons at least one more game, one illustrious player faces what is possibly the final game of his career. After this season's playoffs, Ray Lewis says he'll put down the pads for good. He'll never play another ... More >>
Now we know who the Broncos will face in their 2013 playoffs debut: the Baltimore Ravens, by dint of the squad's 24-9 win over the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. So...will the emotion from Ray Lewis's final home game (depicted in videos included in a big collection of clips below) help the Ravens def ... More >>
Sunday's Broncos-Ravens match-up looked to be the most difficult on Denver's second-half-of-the-season schedule -- a road game against a division-leading team whose quarterback, Joe Flacco, continues to chirp about how he and his squad are among the NFL's elite. They sure as hell didn't look like it ... More >>
Denver blog posts make a statement -- and sometimes more than one. Bronco Talk's Jon Heath notes that injured Ravens mainstay Ray Lewis hopes to return for Baltimore's match-up against Denver. But we think he shouldn't rush back.... At WhoSaidYouSaid, Ben De Grow argues for an opt-in for teacher's ... More >>
Pueblo BarbieIn contemporary Internet society, e-mail forwards should be all but obsolete. Facebook has eliminated the need to spam your friends, coworkers and nieces with chain letters, LOLCats and tacky "This is what a best friend is for" unfunny Internet poetry. But somehow, a few crappy e ... More >>
If you haven't seen the footage from earlier this month when Brandon Lloyd took a few extra steps out of bounds after a catch and sent a Cardinals cheerleader scrambling, stop reading immediately and click through to the .gif below. It's great -- one of those rare unscripted, uncontrolled NFL ... More >>
Ray Lewis wearing his Ray Lewis costume. Horrifying.The Broncos are 6-0, while the Baltimore Ravens, who they'll play on Sunday, are 3-3. No problem, right? But the Ravens can be a terrifying team, and not just on Halloween weekend. Given a couple of breaks here and there, they could be undef ... 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 >>
