    Want thrills? Just follow the best TV drama in America. Yes, the Peyton Manning show. A 38-year-old is attempting his second, and final, comeback. The version of Manning who directed the 2013 Broncos to the Super Bowl suddenly vanished in the latter days of the 2014 season. He was...

  • Ramsey: UCCS supporting cast carries Mountain Lions to RMAC semis


    UCCS guard Alex Koehler stands 6-foot-1, maybe, but he showed the courage to invade the land of giants. He emerged triumphant, rising above Colorado Mesa's Ryan Stephan for a crucial tip in the lane with eight minutes remaining in the second half. Koehler and the Mountain Lions...

  • Ramsey blog: Can Nuggets find a way to dump Josh Kroenke?

    Updated: Tue, Mar 3, 2015

    The Nuggets liberated Brian Shaw today in much the same way the Rockies recently liberated general manager Dan O'Dowd. Both men have arrived at better, saner destinations in their lives. Nuggets fans remain in a bad destination, largely because Josh Kroenke is running the franchise....

  • Ramsey blog: CC Tigers must prove improvement with victories

    Updated: Fri, Feb 27, 2015

  • Ramsey blog: Manning's 2015 contract not about yesterday. It's about right now

    Updated: Fri, Feb 27, 2015

    Peyton Manning is scheduled to earn $21.5 million (with bonuses included) in 2015. Some would argue it's ridiculous for the Broncos to ask Manning to take a pay cut. (This is, by the way, not one of those straw man arguments. I've heard these someones defend Manning's huge 2015...

  • Ramsey blog: BYU went independent, became irrelevant

    Updated: Thu, Feb 26, 2015

  • Ramsey: Lewis-Palmer's Charlie Hovasse conquers opponents with an exotic knee

    Updated: Thu, Feb 26, 2015

    As Charlie Hovasse kneeled at the scorer's table, he realized he had triumphed. He had not yet entered the game Feb. 4 against Vista Ridge. He had yet to score a point, grab a rebound or help his Lewis-Palmer Rangers to a victory this season. He still knew. "That was the happiest...

    Updated: Wed, Feb 25, 2015

    I've been watching the Denver Nuggets play in downtown Denver, or on the edge of downtown Denver, since 1971. We go back a long way. When I first started watching the Nuggets, they weren't the Nuggets. They were called the Rockets and played with a red, white and blue ball in the...

  • Ramsey: Nuggets should take caring lessons from Tom Brady

    Updated: Tue, Feb 24, 2015

    DENVER - A long time ago, before Tom Brady became Tom Brady, he was standing in a long line with his parents at Angelo's, a mega-popular restaurant in Ann Arbor, Mich. Workers at Angelo's made sure the best Michigan athletes didn't wait in line. Those workers walked right past Brady,...

    Updated: Fri, Feb 20, 2015

    Over in a corner of the ice at The Broadmoor World Arena, a gang of Pioneers were hugging and shouting and celebrating yet another goal. Everyone else in the building was mute, stunned by the realization the Gold Pan would soon be returning to Denver. Yes, the Evil Empire of the...
