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

Names like Josh McDaniels, Scott McInnis and Jamie Paulin-Ramirez made us cringe this year, committing dastardly deeds or generally making fools of themselves and the Centennial State.

And as such, they've been inducted into our Hall of Shame 2010 (available right now from newstands).

But can you remember who embarrassed Colorado in previous years?

Well, Richard "Balloon Boy" Heene topped the list in 2009; while former judge Edward "Naughty" Nottingham turned a lot of faces red in 2008. And in 2007, it was tubercular frequent flier Andrew Speaker.

Wanna go back further? Ted Haggard sinned in 2006; Michael "Brownie Brown" was all wet in 2005; and Rockies pitcher Denny Neagle took some heat way back in 2004.

Enjoy in shameless fashion.

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.
