    Updated: Fri, Mar 14, 2014

    BOULDER - What were you doing at 13? Kylee Shook was earning her first verbal scholarship offer, from the University of Colorado, following her second high school game at Mesa Ridge. She was taking a recruiting visit to Washington. She was 6-feet of gangly, giggly potential. At 13,...

  • Klee: With Peyton Manning window closing, Broncos go big

    Updated: Thu, Mar 13, 2014

    ENGLEWOOD — So, DeMarcus Ware. Is this a Dream Team? "I wouldn't say that," the former Cowboys star said with a smile. Phew. The new Broncos passed their first test. No silly guarantees. The new Broncos know this won't be easy. The old Broncos already learned that, back on a...

  • Klee: Why not us? Ray Bourque gets an assist for Avs' revival

    Updated: Wed, Mar 12, 2014

    DENVER — Where did this all begin, this stirring revival of the Colorado Avalanche? Try a restaurant. But not just any restaurant. Not some chain joint in Park Meadows with wall photos of the staff’s sixth-place softball team, or even the hot new spot in LoDo, complete with $18...

  • Klee: Eric Decker, Shaw's Nuggets and The Kid

    Updated: Sun, Mar 9, 2014

    DENVER — Codeine cough syrup prevents driving and clear thought. But it has a profound effect on tying flies. So, after a few down days with a cough from hell, my streamer boxes are sufficiently full for April, May and into June's runoff. And now I'm feeling fine, thanks. Just...

  • Klee: Champ Bailey gone but worth remembering

    Updated: Thu, Mar 6, 2014

    DENVER — When I remember Champ Bailey's career with the Broncos, the memory will be this. Prior to each practice, whether in training camp's August heat or December's breezy chill, Champ would stroll from the locker room to the east sideline, then stop, suddenly. He would lean on...

  • KLEE: Time to bust the bracket, tweak NCAA Tournament

    Updated: Fri, Feb 28, 2014

    DENVER - Fixing college basketball won't be easy. That's OK; we have time, and with million-dollar TV contracts, the game's not going anywhere. The new freedom-of-movement rules eventually will offer a nice measure of progress. Someday, hopefully, we'll straighten out the crooked...

    Updated: Fri, Feb 28, 2014

    DENVER — If you have the dirt on Derrick White, please shoot me an email: paul.klee@gazette.com. Because I can't find any. There's no arrest record. He didn't grow up in a sketchy neighborhood ruled by drugs. There's no paycheck-to-paycheck childhood in a single-parent home....

    Updated: Sat, Feb 22, 2014

    DENVER — Who's the noisy guy? Who's the dude in the Discovery Canyon letterman's jacket hollering like he's trying to catch a cab? Who's he hugging . and why won't he let go? "When I won state ." Steve Turner's voice trailed off. "This is 10 times better than that." This is...

  • Klee: Anyone seen the Gold Pan? The DU-CC hockey mystery continues

    Updated: Fri, Feb 21, 2014

    DENVER — The stories, more fable than fact, often surface on winter nights over a beer. They are tall tales, the Sasquatches and Nessies of college hockey in Colorado. Matt Tabrum has heard the stories. He's heard the wild, varied claims of how the original Gold Pan "might've"...

  • KLEE: Denver Nuggets in a sad, mysterious state

    Updated: Wed, Feb 19, 2014

    DENVER - This is the state of the Denver Nuggets. "Even if everybody does what we want them to do, even if everybody plays the best game they could possibly play, it's still going to be tough for us to win games, being honest," Brian Shaw said after a rough draft of the Nuggets...
