     In the last 20 years or so, Denver Colorado has emerged as one of the sports hubs of the country. We boast all four major professional sports teams, three of which have compeated at the  championship level. We also are home  to a number of "B" list sports teams, The most exciting of which is The NLL Colorado Mammoth Lacrosse team. Just in-case some of you aren't familiar with lacrosse, it's the second most played game in all of Canada. Briefly; it's a smooth blend of hockey and soccer. For those of you that find yourself missing the physical aspect of football with high speed collisions on turf, you need to check it out. What soccer and hockey bot lack in scoring, lacrosse makes up for. It's not uncommon for final scores to be around fifteen (combined). If you're disgusted by the notion that some people would like to rule fighting completely out of the NHL, then you need to watch lacrosse. In last nights Mammoth loss to the Rochester Knighthawks, there were two huge hits sending both of the Rochester players out of the game so they could dislodge their jock straps from around their tonsils. We were also treated to two good fights, one that sent four players to the box. For those of you who enjoy the raucous atmosphere of the south end zone or Oakland Colosseum you'll find chest paint, voodoo costumes, chow bells, bullhorns and the rowdy Willy B of KBPI fame is the field announcer. Willy delights fans with plenty of in game trash talking. If you're not sold yet, let me mention the bikini laden hot tub right behind the glass in one corner of the field. If you can muster up the ten dollars to catch a game I guarantee, you will have fun. The most endearing aspect of an indoor lacrosse game is the players. After every game you're invited down to the field for autographs, and the players are gracious enough to stay and sign till well after ten o'clock. That's a big deal since all of these guys have regular nine to fives to get to. I strongly urge all of you to get out to one of these games.

Welcome, to the first of many enlightening articles from your’s truly.

I’m sure you’ll find something here that you can at least chew on for a while. I hope that you will find thought provoking commentary on some of your favorite topics. The first thing that I want to touch on is the up coming draft and how the home town Broncos will approach it. I’m going to be writing primarily about the Broncos because that’s what I’m exposed to. I live in Denver, Colorado, but I’m a Green Bay Packer fan. Have been since the age of seven. Being a Denver native I have been following the team for most of my life. I’ve seen all the highs and lows since 1975. Including the gut wrenching Super Bowl victory over my Packers. This being said, lets begin the Bronco talk.

           This past Sunday, the Dallas Cowboys traveled to Lincoln Financial Field to play the Philadelphia Eagles in what was a win and you’re in the playoffs game.  This game had a lot of build-up prior kick-off.  The Eagles found out, about 15 minutes before the game started, that the stars had aligned for them; the Bears and Buccaneers had both lost.  This game had everything football fans wanted.  It was the ‘Boys against the Birds, with their playoff destinies on the line.

           Each week, on Friday, I will look into my (never wrong, just misinformed) crystal ball and give my predictions for that weekend games.  I will always prognosticate on the Eagles and Cowboys games and then pick two more games of interest (to me, that is, not necessarily to you).  Keep in mind, that this is for entertainment purposes only, and that I do not endorse any sort of legal or illegal gambling.  That being said…let’s see what’s in my crystal ball!

Week 8 College Football Preview

Picks: Texas(-6), Kansas(-19), UCONN(+3), Alabama (-13), LSU(-2), Arizona(+2)

Last week: 4-4 

Wow that was one crazy week of football we witnessed last weekend.  There were tons of upsets and now with last night lose at TCU we have even fewer number of undefeated teams.  If last weeks games should us anything is that the Big 12 is really good and the SEC might be living off reputation more then actual ability

Last night, we lost another star to the pre-season. Antawn Jamison went down with a knee injury after playing only 4 mins. Which begs the question why do we need a pre-season anyway. Now the Washin

           Yesterday, the Eagles lost another heartbreaker to a division foe, the Washington Redskins, 23-17.  The Eagles stand at 2-3 and in 4th (last) place in their division.  They have now lost two division (3 conference) games…and that does not bode well for play-off considerations.  Though it’s still early in the season…the sky may be falling!

The Crying Game pt. 2

Hello NFL fans,

    Here we are again with the on going drama that is the Valley of the Departed, or as you know them, the Dallas Cowboy fan base. You see after the critically acclaimed article The TO Story, there was only one thing I could do, make a crappy sequel! This sequel would not have been if not for the despicable actions of the Dallas Cowgirls and their equally brain dead fan base.

Hello NFL Fans,

So far in this experiment we have one bet open pending tonight outcome of UCONN vs Louv.  We used 10 units on that bet so we are down to 90.

This weekend I would like to see if teasers are really a suckers bet or not.  I feel bookies are really good at what they do.  They usually know exactly where the line should be, thus by getting 6 or 7 points more you are using the handy cappers knowledge against him by giving youself a buffer. I have 3 4 team teasers for Saturday games. Lets see how they do.

It seems as if losing is not the only problem the rams have right now.  The benching of Marc Bulger has caused quite a stir amongst the team.  Steven Jackson was quoted as saying that it was
