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

When bloggers write about Denver, we take notice -- as these three items prove.

Bleacher Report's John Stitz thinks ESPN's becoming a joke -- and the first bit of evidence he offers is its "worship" of Tim Tebow, "a guy that most people don't even think he will be anywhere close to being as successful in the NFL as he was in college." Except when it comes to endorsements.

WhoSaidYouSaid.com spotlights a clip in which Representative Betsy Markey likens independent voters to "renters." Presumably, that means they're not interested in moving in with her permanently.

5280's Michael de Yoanna links to a post by Larimer County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Eloise Campanella making fun of Richard "Balloon Dad" Heene. Get in line, sister.

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.
