  • Klee: Rugby 7s aiming at 2016 Olympics for boost in popularity

    Updated: Sun, May 24, 2015

    DENVER - A chunk of her neck is missing. Not a small chunk, a big chunk, big enough that, when she lifts her blonde hair, the back of Lisa Rosen's neck looks like a divot. Peyton Manning probably could relate. But Peyton Manning plays his sport with a helmet and pads. These...

  • Klee: Nuggets must make their own luck after NBA draft lottery

    Updated: Wed, May 20, 2015

    DENVER — It made sense that Josh Kroenke called his own name to represent the Nuggets at the NBA draft lottery. Did you really think the young team president would miss an opportunity to smile for the cameras as a potential Nuggets hero during a happy time? (Ignore the disappearing...

  • Klee: Time for Lady Luck to smile on Denver Nuggets

    Updated: Tue, May 19, 2015

    BLACK HAWK — One chip, at least, always goes on No. 27. That's the date of her wedding anniversary, the 27th of October. And the other chips? A couple go on 17, her daughter's birthday; a couple on double-zeroes, because it's green, the color of money; a couple more on 11. "Just...

  • Klee: James Irwin's Miguel Molas wins state titles the old-fashioned way

    Updated: Sun, May 17, 2015

    LAKEWOOD - Team Miguel is two-deep. No, make that three. There's Elijah Shaw and Emileo Ochoa and another classmate whose name I didn't catch. That's my bad. But she's a proud member of Team Miguel. She made and lugged around the sign at the state track and field championships...

  • Klee: Coronado's Evan Kay short on time, tall on achievement

    Updated: Fri, May 15, 2015

    Worry for Evan Kay. Not that graduating from Coronado High School and enrolling at Colorado State will be too much. Chances are, the 18-year-old will crash the dean's list, try out for a varsity sports roster and make it, or start his own business by junior year. Worry for Evan Kay...

  • Games in contested AFC West will be key

    Published: Fri, May 15, 2015

    The most important game on the Broncos schedule? The Patriots game is a fine choice by a wise man, Mr. Ramsey. After watching John Elway go 11-0 against the Patriots as a quarterback, you can bet the Broncos boss is deflated by a 1-4 record against New England as an executive. The...

  • Klee blog: Denver Broncos' Pat Bowlen, the Ring of Fame and mixed emotions

    Updated: Thu, May 14, 2015

    I wrote this column a couple days after the Broncos lost to the Seahawks in Super Bowl XLVIII, and it came to mind Wednesday, the day the Broncos elected Pat Bowlen to the Ring of Fame. Mainly, because that column starts like this: When the day comes to induct Pat...

  • 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...
