Swifties, a Strip Show, and the Las Vegas Super Bowl

February 13th, 2024

In a Super Bowl that featured celebrities in the stands, clever commercials, and of course, Taylor Swift, it would be easy to lose focus as a sportswriter and simply put together 1100 words that avoided the game – and just focused on the Swifties, and their clicks. But Super Bowl LVIII wasn’t just about Taylor. It was about heroes like Andy Reid, Travis Kelce, and Pat Mahomes. Not the Anti-Hero. The game deserves an article that treats the play on the field with respect. Not a Blank Space. All that attention on Taylor Swift, Beyonce, Ice Spice, and Usher. I’m just going to Shake it... Read More

Return to Boulder. Super Day, Superbowl, Sun Set in Florida

February 11th, 2024

Sunset Over Florida As I Fly Home. Back to Boulder! As the sun sets over the Florida East Coast the sun also sets of my Florida vacation. At least it is not a shock of cold and snow.  Wait, wait, that’s wrong. I have to admit that the weather in Florida when I left was amazing.  The trip was amazing, and gives me this opportunity to share some of my pics. Hat’s off to Delta Airlines. They got me to Florida, and more importantly they flew me home. While I could wax eloquently, I’ll leave waxing to the moon!  Their effort was effective and excellent. This is Lensworth At Large,... Read More

Favorite places in Boulder to watch the Super Bowl

February 11th, 2023

Super Bowl Sunday has become a cultural phenomenon in the United States, with parties, special events, and other festivities taking place on the day of the game.

Hamlin – Harbaugh – And Those Sad Little Horned Frogs

January 10th, 2023

The memory is still fresh in our minds. A player lays motionless on the field as fans watch in disbelief. A sight so horrific that many cannot bear to watch, and yet, cannot look away. A stadium of enthusiastic fans, painted faces, and cheering voices – suddenly turned silent. No, I am not talking about Damar Hamlin. He’s doing great! I am talking about Georgia’s 65-7 drubbing over TCU in the College Football Playoff National Championship on Monday night. Actually, it wasn’t just one player laying motionless on the field, it was an entire TCU secondary that seemed motionless. The defensive... Read More

The Sour Taste of Super Bowl Appetizers

February 8th, 2022

The matchup was determined almost two weeks ago. The Los Angeles Rams would be facing the Cincinnati Bengals in Super Bowl LVI. The teams would have ample days to rest, strategize, and attend press conferences. The fans would have more than enough time to buy cheese dip, preview Super Bowl commercials, and upgrade their big screens. Two weeks can seem like an eternity, but if the Super Bowl is the main course, sports filled us with plenty of hors d’oeuvres while waiting. Tom Brady won’t be playing on Sunday, but he still dominated the news. We had the NBA trade deadline, the NHL All-Star... Read More

Super Bowl Odds – Can Anyone Beat the Chiefs?

December 29th, 2020

To say that the Kansas City Chiefs are the odds-on favorite to repeat as Super Bowl Champions would be an understatement.  With a record of 14-1, home field throughout the playoffs, and quarterback Pat Mahomes behind center, Las Vegas sees them as a +170 to win it all again. The +170 represents a return of $170 if you were to bet $100, or the equivalent of 1.7 to 1 odds. But if you were paying attention over the past few weeks you may have seen Mahomes look rather pedestrian in throwing three picks against the Dolphins in week 14, KC barely surviving a close one versus the Saints in week 15,... Read More

Forget the Decision – Go Get Phillip Rivers

August 1st, 2017

While the Denver Broncos try and decide whether Trevor Siemian or Paxton Lynch should start at quarterback in 2017, the smart play is for John Elway to roll the dice again on a 35-year-old veteran to save the day. Long before Siemian and Lynch were in diapers and throwing tantrums, Phillip Rivers was in the NFL throwing touchdowns. With an elite defense and Super Bowl aspirations, Denver can’t afford growing pains. Here are five reasons that Phillip Rivers could transform the Broncos into a Super Bowl contender. 1) It takes about five years of experience to really excel at the quarterback... Read More

Edible Indulgence and the NFL

January 30th, 2017

Photo Credit: pixaby.com Why does the National Football League (NFL) deny their players the right to use marijuana instead of habit-forming opioids?  That is the billion dollar question!  While NFL players continue to be suspended for cannabis use with just 35 nanogram of THC per milliliter, consider the fact, the Olympics allow four-times that amount for athletes around the world in the biggest competition on the planet. Crazy, right? So, what’s a football fan to do…watch the game high, of course! Edibles are a best bet for an evening of high-stakes football.  Here’s what to expect in... Read More

As January comes to a close, we look to February for excitement, but what does the beginning of this month have in store?  The more important question may even be: what’s in store that’s worth my time?  The answer to that question may have been difficult to answer before, but with this list of coming events, the answer’s never been more clear. Here’s the top events to kick off February.   The Nile Project is a group that combines the traditions of 11 countries along the path of Africa’s Nile River basin.  This colorful and thumping mix of music is meant to break all language... Read More
