The national sports blog Deadspin seems especially enamored of Maher's coverage of Ewing.
In the evocatively-titled post, "The Strange Saga Of Denver's Freestyle-Skiing, Group-Sexing Alleged Pimp," the site says Maher's epic writing on the subject is worth the long read, thanks to his vivid descriptions of Denver's kink scene, his dogged sleuthing into suggestions that Ewing was a slopeside pimp and his colorful use of phrases like "bristly mustaches" and "shabby hotel bathrooms filled with septuagenarians."
In short, Deadspin labels Maher, who now works at the local political news site Face the State, the "Carl Bernstein of the shady Denver nightclub beat." How funny: We've been calling Maher that for years.
