could rockies be playoff contender over broncos in 2017?


no offense to broncos quarterbacks trevor siemian and paxton lynch. but could it be the rockies have better young arms in jon gray, chad bettis, tyler chatwood and tyler anderson?the rockies are talking playoffs, the way the broncos always do. the difference? the rockies are a baseball team on the rise, while the broncos are a football team in transition. could it be that in 2017 coors field will be a happier place than mile high stadium?now that would rock broncos country, wouldn’t it?the rockies are finally acting like winners. with all due respect to new broncos coach vance joseph, if he thinks our local nfl team can quickly reboot with siemian or lynch at quarterback, the only kick joseph might get is in the pants.although they play in the national league west alongside san francisco a

the rockies made two bold moves urday. they officially signed former kansas city royals reliever greg holland to a one-year contract.then they designated right-handed starter eddie butler to clear space on the 40-man roster. er, a former first-round draft choice, has struggled to succeed at the major-league level.holland’s contract, which includes a vesting option for a second season, includes a $7 million guarantee for the 2017 season.holland, 31, a 10th-round selection in the 2007 draft, has a career 2.42 era in six seasons that were all spent with the royals. from 2011 to 2014, he was one of the best relievers in baseball. he compiled a 1.86 era in that span while striking out 358 batters in 256⅓ innings. however, he injured an elbow late in the 2015 season, missed the royals’ world ser






big steps made to improve rockies' bullpen


in an effort to turn the rockies into legitimate playoff contenders, the young general manager, with the blessings of owner dick monfort, was determined to fill the gaping hole at first base and patch up a torn and tattered bullpen. two weeks before pitchers and catchers report to spring training, bridich can check both tasks off his to-do list.“dick stepped up, absolutely,” bridich said urday after the rockies officially signed former kansas city royals closer greg holland. “dick has been a man of his word. he e out and (said), ‘we are going to increase payroll and we are going to be more aggressive.’ and we have been able to do that.”bridich filled first base by signing ian desmond to a five-year, $70 million contract, the largest contract the rockies have ever given a free-agent positio






von miller, shane ray could become nfl's best p rushing duo


editor’s note: sixth of an eight-part series breaking down the broncos’ roster as they reboot under new coach vance joseph. sunday: linebackers. up next: secondaryshane ray‘s mischievous smirk told his thoughts before he even answered the question.“can you imagine how it will be for you and von miller chasing quarterbacks full-time?”ray said, “yeah, i do. it’ll be scary.”that should become reality beginning next season. ray enters his third year, more mature and focused on becoming a pro bowl player. miller is the face of the broncos and an annual defensive player of the year candidate.together, they could become the best p rushing duo in the nfl.the broncos have a decision to make on whether to re-sign demarcus ware, but the afc west will still have its hands full with miller, ray and sha

interesting thing of the day


for those who live in wintry climates, it can sometimes seem like spring will never arrive. around the beginning of march in the upper northern hemisphere there is a palpable restlessness, an eagerness to shed winter clothing and begin planting spring gardens. at the northern latitude in which i grew up, winter would often linger into april, if not longer, and the sight of snow, which once seemed so novel in the fall, be e unbearable.amongst these wintry places, however, there are regions where spring can arrive suddenly in the middle of january, but retreat just as suddenly. one such region, an area encomp ing the southern half of the canadian province of alberta, along with parts of montana and the dakotas, is subject to a unique meteorological process that can cause this type of extreme






as falcons return to big game, remembering the dirty birds


atlanta (ap) — the last time the atlanta falcons made it to the super bowl, they put on quite a show.just not when it mattered.the team known as the “dirty birds” capped off a remarkable season in 1998 by doing almost everything wrong once they claimed a spot in the big game.“i didn’t do a good enough job of making them understand that you don’t want to just be there,” said dan reeves, who was the falcons’ coach. “you want to win it.”most read storiesunlimited digital access. $1 for 4 weeks.in the lead-up to the super bowl, reeves actually got things rolling by unwittingly rekindling his ugly breakup with the denver broncos, who just happened to be atlanta’s opponent. then there was a dispute over the way the players got off the plane once they landed in miami. for some reason, receiver te

san jose vice-mayor: a cursed post


when san jose mayor sam liccardo selected councilwoman magdalena carrasco recently as his vice-mayor, political gossips noted that he p ed over a couple of other contenders.though he didn’t voice unhappiness publicly, it was widely umed that councilman johnny khamis hoped to get the job. councilman chappie jones was also seen as a contender.neither man should have worried too much about not getting the post. the truth is that a quiet curse goes with the san jose vice-mayor’s job, a curse that often handicaps political ascent.the last council member to serve as vice-mayor and later become mayor was susan hammer, who was vice mayor under tom mcenery from 1985 to 1987 and was elected mayor in 1990.the last council member to be vice-mayor at the time she ascended to mayor was janet gray hayes,

by doug ferguson, the ociated press san diego — patrick rodgers had a clean scorecard to match a picture-perfect urday at torrey pines and s a 5-under 67 to share the lead with defending champion brandt snedeker in the farmers insurance open.snedeker, trying to become only the fourth player to win back-to-back at torrey pines since the tournament began in 1952, didn’t get much out of his round of 70. his three birdies were all inside 6 feet, and the longest putt he made was for par.even so, being tied for the lead is a better spot than his last two victories. he rallied from seven s s behind in 2012 and won in a playoff against kyle stanley, who made triple bogey on the final hole. last year, he made the cut on the number and was six s s behind going into the final round.that doesn’t figur

dan quinn must match up with bill belichick in super bowl


by barry wilner, the ociated pressseattle’s defense had taken charge, and the seahawks led the 2015 super bowl by 10 points.then tom brady torched that unit in the fourth quarter — a unit coordinated by dan quinn.yes, the most memorable play in that game was malcolm butler’s goal-line interception when the seahawks appeared ready to successfully defend their title.now, though, with the matchup of the falcons against the patriots in this super bowl, the memory of quinn’s defense struggling in the clutch is vivid.and quinn doesn’t exactly have the “legion of boom” on his side, although atlanta’s defense has shown staying power. it shut down his former team and then the potent packers to get to the title match with new england.before quinn begins figuring out how to figure out brady, bill bel

long’s bet on patriots pays off in vet’s 1st super bowl trip


foxborough, m . (ap) — there was a time when chris long didn’t think this opportunity would ever come.a time when words like “playoffs” and “super bowl” seemed like unattainable unicorns that the 31-year-old patriots defensive lineman might never touch. eight years in the nfl spent on underperforming teams, and having seasons potholed by injuries have that effect.so when the veteran was asked this week whether the chance to earn a ring was on his mind when he signed with the patriots this offseason, he didn’t doesn’t hesitate to answer.“it’s the whole reason i e here,” he said. “everybody wants to win. that’s the bottom line. when you’re making a decision as an older player of where you want to be, you want to be in situations like this with opportunities like this. we’ve earned the opport






where customers can watch embly of “handmade skis from colorado trees” – the den


after karol groswold tried a pair of denver-made meier skis on a recent demo day at winter park, she had to have a pair. she loved the way they performed, but when she heard customers can order custom-made top-sheet g hics and even participate in designing them, she was sold.customers can buy skis off the rack at meier’s new factory, visible to thousands of motorists daily in the industrial area on the east side of interstate 25 between sixth avenue and colfax. they can watch skis being made by hand and listen to a sales pitch from a “ski-tender” who serves beer and beta on meier’s various models, which have wood cores made from colorado aspen and beetle-kill pine. if they want, they can design their own g hics, and that hit home for groswold.the meier factory is only a few blocks from whe






hartman: vikings must find a way to fix awful running game


last year vikings coach mike zimmer added pat shurmur as a tight ends coach and tony sparano as an offensive line coach, giving the vikings a lot of nfl head coaching experience on their staff.but the team lost a chunk of head coaching experience during the season when offensive coordinator norv turner resigned. shurmur took over the coordinator position on an interim basis and now will retain that job, while zimmer also added two new coaches in recent weeks to round out his staff.zimmer talked about what he expects from his new coaches.“well, we hired clancy barone as the tight ends coach, and clancy, he’s had a long history of coaching the offensive line and the tight ends with the denver broncos,” he said. “that’s where he e from, and he won the super bowl with them last year. he’s a ve






never dull nba dominates in court of social media – the denver post


the nba is the most interesting sport on earth.there’s a little hyperbole there, yes. but there’s never a dull moment in the ociation. and no league, but no league, does social media battling with the stinging precision and captivating prose of the nba. it’s not even close.and it is oh, so entertaining.last week was divided into two parts –- one amusing. the other? probably best described with the wide-eyed, blushing emoji.memphis’ chandler parsons and portland’s c.j. mccollum battled late friday night in a spat whose flames were first stoked by the trail blazers’ team twitter account. they posted a video of parsons air-balling a 3-point s in that game, saying “to be fair, the nba 3-point line is really, really far away from the basket.”to which parsons tweeted back: “@trailblazers good lu






paly feels at home as it crushes crosstown rival gunn


palo alto — friday night inside a packed bow gymnasium at gunn, the home team was technically crosstown rival paly, which must wait until may 15 for construction of its new athletic facilities to be completed.but playing 4 miles from their own pus didn’t seem to deter the boys and s basketball teams for the vikings, who made themselves comfortable in a season sweep of the titans.“every single one of these gunn games are so special and they mean so much,” said paly senior skylar burris, who used air quotes to make her point after a 61-45 victory by the s in which she torched the defense. “every single time you step on the court, you just feel the energy of the crowd. and to score 31 in front of our ‘home’ game in front of our ‘home’ fans, it feels good.“it’s a good way to end it, i guess.”t






ryan suter enjoying life in minnesota on, off the ice


brooks suter was all smiles, his cheeks red and his blond hair damp from a 70-minute outdoor practice at minnesota made in edina on wednesday night.ryan suter helped gear down his 6-year-old son by unlacing brooks’ tiny skates and removing the helmet with a no. 20 decal that pays homage to brooks’ late grandfather and ryan’s dad, bob.the wild defenseman couldn’t help thinking this is why he signed with minnesota in the first place.“it’s perfect. the midwest, where i grew up. outdoor hockey. [wife] becky’s family is here. my family, three hours away. a winning team,” suter said. “things are good, and hopefully they stay that way. i didn’t do this for me. i did it for my family.”as suter zipped up brooks’ bag, he spotted a “let’s play hockey” magazine on a nearby table. on the cover was a pi






mariners want newcomer jarrod dyson to be agitator on field, in clubhouse


manager scott servais said he welcomes the “edge” he expects jarrod dyson to bring to the mariners, and dyson said, in turn, that he knows exactly what that entails.maybe the mariners have been just a little too comfortable to play against. sure, you’ve got those elite power bats in the middle of the order, but no one who struck fear with their ability to cause havoc on the bases, and who made the other manager fret about what might be coming next.“i want us to be uncomfortable to other teams,’’ manager scott servais said. “that’s the goal here.”and just maybe, the mariners have been a little too comfortable in their own clubhouse. that’s not to say they don’t have leadership, or effort. but not necessarily someone to agitate, challenge, nurture and coerce — and in the process help will th






'this is us' is tv's surprise hit of the season – because america needs a good c


los angeles – heart-tugging drama is usually not effective in a studio screening room, where the smell of executives’ sweat is more likely to waft through the aisles than overly ered popcorn. but as the lights went up following an a nced episode of “this is us” this month, a serious case of the sniffles had spread across the vip audience, which included cast member chrissy metz.“forget crying. i was sobbing,” said metz, who plays a steelers fanatic tackling weight issues, still dabbing away tears 20 minutes later at an after-party on the universal studios lot. the show’s nearly 15 million viewers can relate. they’ve made the nbc drama the most watched new show of the season and the most unexpected rookie hit since “lost” more than a decade ago.the show, which traces a racially diverse fami






evander kane exceeds even my expectations!


anyone who reads my posts knows how much i love evander kane for fantasy hockey.  you’re probably sick of me writing about him at this point.  well, i’m leading off with him again today because of the following: a) he had three more points on thursday night (2+1, 3 sog), b) nobody else went off because nino and i just led off with him, c) i watched the entire sabres game to see kane’s impact, and d) there is no d.  well, there is, watch dwight howard and dennis schroeder joke about it but not in regards to this point.  anyways, you guys know what to do with kane at this point.  for those who are new here, pick him up and play him!  it’s an excellent combination of goals, s s and penalty minutes at the moment.  and the best part for me is, he helped me win a trip to california in march to s






ranking the 100 most important people in blackhawks history


the nhl is celebrating its centennial season in 2017 and will honor the top 100 players in league history during all-star weekend in los angeles. as an original six franchise, the blackhawks have been around for most of those 100 seasons, and we felt they deserved a list of their own. here is a completely subjective ranking of the 100 most important people in blackhawks history. let the arguments begin.100. darcy rota: first-round pick in '73 draft scored 20 or more goals in each of his first four seasons with hawks.99. steve sullivan: well-traveled winger played three full seasons and most of two others with hawks. scored 20-plus goals four times, including career-high 34 in 2000-01.98. harvey wittenberg: served as stadium announcer for more than 40 years; known for his no-frills, monoton
