Sure, it was tacky -- but folks around town were talking about our Colorado Rockies fans without underwear series, wondering how, exactly, these baseball fans might have lost their undergarments at Coors Field.

Not to mention their lunch after they left the ballpark.

Says deeplyembarassedinDenver:

Shouldn't Westword be more focused on highlighting local artists, events and culture than pointing out the retards in LoDo? Sorry locals, we're against you, not for you.

Funny that you should point that out, deeply embarrassed. Because an hour or so after the naked fan post was published -- and several hours before you posted your comment -- we published this account of Governor John Hickenlooper saluting two of the state's artists, as well as two of the state's artistic communities that are winning awards at the Colorado Creative Industries. For more arts stories, see our Show and Tell blog.

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.
