Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

The behavior of Broncos receiver Brandon Marshall, whose "hamstring injury" over the weekend followed obvious signals that he'd rather undergo several weeks of continuous dental work that participate in the team's training camp, clearly isn't to the liking of YouTuber garyhoosier. He's created a video set to the classic sounds of Smokey Robinson and the Miracles' "Tears of a Clown" that juxtaposes ignominious references to Marshall's past -- his quote about hating Denver, a showboating glove shtick that teammate Brandon Stokely narrowly managed to prevent -- with images of fellow divas Terrell Owens and Chad Ochocinco and dissolves in which BM's face is transformed into that of an alternately grinning and weeping Bozo. Doubt Brandon will enjoy it -- but plenty of frustrated fans'll likely feel differently.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
