Remember when the Los Angeles Lakers suffered a big blow when the team announced forward Metta World Peace would be sidelined six weeks to recover from a surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee?
On Friday, I joined hundreds of local fans at the Montrose Pavilion for the Denver Broncos' first Mile High Salute to Fans Tour.
On New Year's Eve, rather than venturing to a local bar to celebrate the arrival of 2013, I headed over to San Juan Cinema to see "Django Unchained."
Music is probably my biggest passion. I’ve grown up enjoying various genres. After reading Dave Bowman’s column in the Dec. 27 Daily Press about his favorite albums of the year and realizing I don’t often have a chance to write on music, I thought it would be appropriate to mention some of my own favorite albums of 2012.
As someone who writes for a living, I pride myself on trying to tell a meaningful and interesting story every time. I attended the Montrose High football squad's annual season-ending banquet on Wednesday night at Grace Community Church after head coach Todd Casebier extended me an invitation and was reminded of the powerful impact writing can have.
I’m not a big fan of NBA commissioner David Stern. I have never liked his approach of trying to expand the league overseas, or how he supposedly treats players, specifically recalling reports of how he yelled at them during lockout meetings last year. I also despised how he rejected a trade last season that would have sent Chris Paul to the L.A. Lakers.
I wasn’t shy in voicing my distaste for how John Elway and the Denver Broncos organization handled Tim Tebow, though I fully supported them moving him to sign Peyton Manning.
Games lasting well in excess of three hours and odd penalty calls were some of the few things I’ve tried to ignore since the NFL season began with replacement referees officiating, but I stand firm now in saying that I’m not going to waste my time in watching NFL games if the league doesn’t end the lockout with the regular refs immediately.
