  • Klee: BMW Championship shaping into special golf tournament

    Updated: Sun, Sep 7, 2014

    CHERRY HILLS VILLAGE — This is special. The galleries, the buzz, the Spaniard in skinny pants atop the leaderboard. The golf course. Especially the golf course. All of it, special. It took, oh, about half a driving-range bucket of Pro V1s to get that way. Prior to his practice round...

  • Klee: Stop the NFL violence? Then stop the game

    Updated: Fri, Sep 5, 2014

    ENGLEWOOD — Football, as a whole, is a bad idea. That is clearest at field level of an NFL game. The size and speed of the players is startling, the violence frightening. You have to see it to believe it, really. There's T.J. Ward smashing a wide receiver with such ferocity you...

  • Klee: The Sixth Sense — Story of a U.S. judo champion

    Updated: Thu, Sep 4, 2014

    On the day Myles Porter asked the president of the United States if he was a wussy, the First Lady agreed that she would like to know, too. On the day Myles hosted a judo demonstration in Times Square, he brought a tiny boy with cerebral palsy onto the stage. Myles gripped the boy's...

  • Klee: Write 'em down! It's time for NFL predictions

    Updated: Mon, Sep 1, 2014

    DENVER — Go ahead. Flag this column for taunting. When the NFL regular season is over, the Broncos will not own the best record and No. 1 seed in the AFC. That honor will go to Beautiful Brady and the Patriots. Consider yourself taunted, Broncos County. Peyton would be proud. The...

  • KLEE: CSU gets W, but state is the winner

    Updated: Sat, Aug 30, 2014

    DENVER — With just a subtle twist in their football fortunes, Mike MacIntyre would be the head coach at Colorado State. Yes, CSU. Not Colorado. Strange, right? When it started to become as clear as the St. Vrain that Steve Fairchild was not the right man for the job in Fort...

  • Klee: Will CSU's Kapri Bibbs represent Mountain West on Broncos roster?

    Updated: Wed, Aug 27, 2014

    DENVER - This should be where Kapri Bibbs is most comfortable. This should be where he sees things others don't see, gaps of freedom in a swarm of 21 bodies, the easiest path to a touchdown. This is the goal line. Instead, this is where his mind goes blank. The adrenaline leads to...

  • Broncos blog: Allow Wes Welker to make his own decision

    Updated: Wed, Aug 27, 2014

    Concussions are serious business. Thankfully, we're exiting the dark ages when it comes to their effects on the brain and what a concussion can mean for an athlete who sustains several, or just one. So let's allow Wes Welker make his own choice on what to do with his brain, and his...

  • Blog: Golf: Primer for the BMW Championship

    Published: Mon, Aug 25, 2014

    Am I looking forward to the Broncos' season opener against the Colts? Well, yeah. But not as much as I'm looking forward to the BMW Championship at Cherry Hills Country Club. Sounds like Rory McIlroy, the world's best golfer, is combining the two. McIlroy told the Golf Channel...

  • Klee: Don't mess with Texas? Don't mess with the Broncos' Peyton Manning.

    Updated: Sun, Aug 24, 2014

    DENVER — Who does this Peyton Manning think he is, Johnny Manziel? In a preseason game that meant nothing, unless you ask the Broncos who gained another level of respect for their quarterback, all that was missing was the money sign. Go ahead, Mr. MVP. Rub those fingers together....

  • Klee: If Peyton Manning is right, Broncos should stink more often

    Updated: Sat, Aug 23, 2014

    DENVER - The glove. Maybe it's the glove, a tangible, five-fingered reminder of the neck surgeries that threatened Peyton Manning's football career. Eighty degrees in training camp, and Manning wore the glove. He threw touchdowns. The next day, no glove. More touchdowns. No, it's not...
