Dude!

5280's AJ Vicens has the lowdown on a doctor linked to several Colorado pros (including Rockies closer Huston Street) who's been accused of providing a retired NFL baller with human growth hormone. It's a pointed item.

The Colorado Independent's John Tomasic writes that congressional candidate Ryan Frazier's new ad pitches him as the anti-Obama. Insert your own politically incorrect joke here.
