  • Klee: Cheyenne Mountain sidesteps potholes for state girls' tennis title

    Updated: Wed, May 13, 2015

    PUEBLO - On a random day in August, the coach could receive a text message from the star player. She's transferring and will finish high school elsewhere. That's one way to derail a high school tennis dynasty. Or maybe that star's obvious replacement - another gifted athlete -...

  • Klee blog: What does Tom Brady's suspension mean for Broncos?

    Updated: Mon, May 11, 2015

    The difficult part with Roger Goodell's new NFL is decoding which suspensions are just, and which suspensions are simply to make a point. The Tom Brady suspension looks like the latter. Brady's four-game penalty — and here's a hunch it drops to two games upon appeal...

  • Klee: Denver Broncos lose a promising 'leader' in rookie - for now

    Updated: Sun, May 10, 2015

    ENGLEWOOD — When Gary Kubiak introduced Owen Daniels, who had played for him in Houston and Baltimore, the Broncos coach emphasized his leadership qualities. Strange first thing to say about a tight end. But a telling thing, too. So I thought it was striking that, when Kubiak...

  • Klee: Would shrinking Coors Field benefit the Rockies?

    Updated: Sat, May 9, 2015

    DENVER — This frustrating scenario has unfolded at Coors Field so many times, it now goes unnoticed. But this time was recent and telling and so here it is, again. During the sixth inning of a game last week, Diamondbacks cleanup hitter A.J. Pollock slapped a ball into centerfield....

  • Klee: Tom Brady and the Patriots cheated again, and it was totally worth it

    Updated: Thu, May 7, 2015

    DENVER — Peyton Manning's glove is legal, at least. He has worn it on 80-degree training camp days in August, 13-degree kickoffs in January, and it is legal. His glove doesn't advertise pizzas or luxury vehicles, so the Broncos quarterback isn't violating league sponsorship rules....

  • Klee: With Broncos draft pick Shane Ray, mom knows best

    Updated: Mon, May 4, 2015

    ENGLEWOOD - Mom deserves the best. A single mom raising a rebellious, sometimes angry boy into a man? If there's something better than the best, she deserves that. Shane Ray's mom is sweeter than Tupelo honey, the kind of lady who uses "heck" instead of the other word, "gosh" instead...

  • Klee: Shane Ray to Broncos? Smart move after dumb decision

    Updated: Fri, May 1, 2015

    ENGLEWOOD - This will go down as John Elway's smartest draft pick since his first one, Von Miller. Well, smart might not be the best way to advertise Shane Ray, not after he pulled one of the dumbest moves in NFL draft history. Elway, though? Smart. Gary Kubiak, smart. The personnel...

  • NFL Draft Day preview: And the Broncos select...

    Updated: Thu, Apr 30, 2015

    The Broncos have 10 picks in the 2015 NFL draft. It's doubtful John Elway and Co. will use all of them; don't be surprised if the Broncos brass is among the movers who shake up the draft order through trades. Here are five prospects who might pique Denver's interest with their first...

  • Klee: Colorado quarterbacks in spotlight of NFL draft

    Updated: Wed, Apr 29, 2015

    DENVER - There is no gray area with a 40 time. He can run, or he can't, and the common stopwatch, available for $14.95 at the neighborhood Sports Authority, has the innate ability to distinguish a blur from a tortoise. Same goes for the bench press, Wonderlic or passing yardage -...

  • Klee blog: Worst-case scenario for Rockies? No, but it's down there

    Updated: Mon, Apr 27, 2015

    Is Adam Ottavino-to-the-DL the worst-case scenario for the Rockies?  No, but the worst-case scenario is visible from here. The Rockies closer — a potential star in the bullpen — was scribbled onto the 15-day disabled list Monday with triceps inflammation in his right...
