Marking the final Friday of 2013, Denver's blogs turned to politics, pot and Peyton.
Westword's own Backbeat blog asks whether John Denver's "Rocky Mountain High" was really about pot.
Colorado Pols continued its political stories countdown with number eight: "The Slaughter of Amendment 66 and How it Changed School Board Outcomes."
And Predominantly Orange calls out Wade Phillips for his comments on Peyton Manning's 50th TD.
