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: 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

Events worth your time this February

January 29th, 2017

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

Faces of Boulder – Pic of the Day!

February 7th, 2016

These pint sized Broncos fans are ready for the big game! Meet Connor & Laila! I found these siblings making snowballs in their front yard waiting to ambush their party guests! Ten year old Connor has QB aspirations and throws a mean spiral already. When he isn’t tossing a football around he spends time at the numerous Boulder County skate parks on his trick scooter or BMX bike. He likes hanging out with his friends and playing video games as well. Laila is seven and loves arts and crafts! She is super creative and recently made a life-sized, 3-D dog out of paper! When she’s not making... Read More

The Amazing Life of Byron White

February 5th, 2016

On this Super Bowl Sunday, with Peyton Manning facing his (potentially) last game, it’s appropriate to look at someone who achieved on and beyond football. Someone who, with his connections to Boulder and Colorado more broadly, affected our entire country. Born in Fort Collins in 1917, Byron White was raised in nearby Wellington. Being a devoted student, he graduated from high school at the top of his class in 1930, which earned him a scholarship to the University of Colorado-Boulder. His years at CU, time would tell, were pivotal to say the least. Byron met his eventual wife, Marion Sterns (daughter... Read More

John Fox Isn’t the Answer, He’s the Problem

November 17th, 2014

If Denver Broncos fans wanted any indicator of how their team would perform in big games under head coach John Fox and new NFL legend QB Peyton Manning, five games into the 2012 season they got their answer. When the Broncos went 0-3 against the Atlanta Falcons, Houston Texans, and New England Patriots, teams whose records would go on to be 14-2, 12-4, and 12-4 respectively, Fox and Manning were just continuing the trend they had become known for in Carolina and Indianapolis: losing the games that mattered. In 2003, in only his second year, Fox led the Panthers to a Super Bowl appearance against... Read More

Boulder Gets Set for the Super Bowl

February 1st, 2014

After a bye week that’s felt more like a bye month, the big game is now only a day away. Waiting for this game has been like waiting for Christmas all over again, only this time instead of watching our relatives stuff themselves with food, we’ll get to watch burly men tackle the stuffing out of each other. Here in Boulder, the energy and excitement is palpable; orange and blue flags have been unfurled in homes and storefronts all over town, folks are proudly sporting their Broncos jerseys (under their winter coats, of course) and talk of Sunday’s game can be heard everywhere. Even Governor... Read More
