Ways To Deal With a Horrible Broncos Loss

Zeke in Town

Thomas in more successful days

Caught a hot tip that the Greatest PG-Never-to-Play-on-a-Dream-Team paid a visit to the Queen City of the Plains to "coach" his Florida International University ("Miami's public research university") Panthers in a basketball contest versus your Denver University Pioneers. Sounds like the Pios pulled out a low-scoring victory while Isiah made sure that he looked good in his suit. Aside from last night's Pio win, Denver sports fans can also thank Thomas for bringing Nugget reserve Renaldo Balkman into the Association - who, BTW, is averaging 8 MPG (that's minutes/game, not his carbon footprint). As the Knick GM, perhaps Thomas thought he was making a deft choice by drafting Rolando Blackman when he chose Balkman. In any event, it's fun to see Thomas and reminisce about the glory days of the NBA - back when one might find "Jump" on a warm-up tape. (Oh, and this former Evergreen banger will be in that Bouldeh and Denver next week for the Holidays. Give a shout if you want to get rowdy.)

A Victory for Barrel Man

A somewhat unexpected drubbing of the Chiefs this afternoon in KC for the Broncos. Was expecting a closer game with the Broncos winning, but will certainly take a stress-free crucial road win in a place that has been a house of horrors for the B'cos for quite some time. Defense came up big again with turnovers against a Chiefs offense that looked horrible. Running game was dominant and aside from some Orton turnovers (great game to get some of those out of your system), the offense did more than enough to make this a laugher by mid-3rd quarter. Another thing I noticed today, which was very nice to see, was the utter lack of penalties committed by the B'cos. That would be a good trend to continue from here on out. And yes, the Barrel Man died yesterday. You can only assume he would've loved this game. This one's for you, dude.

But honestly, what does this post have to do with Cutler and his Bears eeking a home win against the hapless Rams? Impressive....

The Not-So-Hot Heat

A pretty standard home blow-out win for the Nugs last night. ST and I sitting behind the basket about five rows up to the delight of all TNT viewers I imagine (see photo). The Nugs didn't dazzle with their play, but were still able to route Wade and his boys, which is pretty impressive I guess.

My favorite part of the evening was getting to heckle Craig Sager as he was walking court side looking like an arrogant prick. Oh yeah, ST also got introduced to former Colo Governor Beaker, errrrr, Bill Owens.

The other Can team didn't fair as well. Didn't see the replay of the disallowed goal, but it sounds like we kind of got jobbed. That weak call on Clark to give the Penns a 5-3 also sucked......

A Scrappy Point

That's a game that seemed pretty lost with only a minute left...but Duchey and TJ wanted to tally at least a point. Awesome empty net work, and a really resilient look for the Avs.

Andy didn't look too good throughout...but sometimes the O will pick you up. Also, sometimes Footer won't stand for a cheap goalie interference/injury-inducer (damn, that Ballard fucker sure hates goalies). Loved Foote's instant "smell the glove" shots at Ballard.
2 points would be preferred, and the Avs seem to be a team that "settles" quite a bit lately for the OTL...but the simple fact that they did get one point, and remain relevant is worthwhile, and that was pretty damn exciting there at the end...
