  • Klee: Denver Broncos' role model is in their own locker room

    Updated: Wed, Jun 3, 2015

    ENGLEWOOD - It was a full 24 hours after the Colts had embarrassed the Broncos in a playoff game, and Chris Harris Jr. was still seething. Any other reaction from Harris would have been surprising; this steely glare coming from the cornerback was entirely predictable. "You ask me a...

  • Klee: Broncos suffer big blow; can they overcome it?

    Updated: Fri, May 29, 2015

    ENGLEWOOD - He's a football-slinging house painter. Got a crack in the wall? Here, slap a coat of No. 18 orange over it. By October no one will notice. This is Peyton Manning's other job, or his job within his job: The great fixer-upper. Then there's the Broncos' new/old...

  • Klee: New Broncos offense, Peyton Manning coming in baby steps

    Updated: Thu, May 28, 2015

    ENGLEWOOD - Peyton Manning took a direct snap from the center and tumbled to the grass turf. Emmanuel Sanders didn't see his quarterback's spill. "I was blocking," Sanders said afterward. One more time - and this will be on the test when the Broncos open against the Ravens - for...

  • Klee: Bolder Boulder honors our best on Memorial Day

    Updated: Mon, May 25, 2015

    BOULDER — He's 92 years young and flew gilders until he was 87. President George W. Bush awarded him a Congressional Medal of Honor, the medal was stolen, and it showed up in a motel's lost and found. As a kid in segregated Colorado Springs, he rode his bicycle across the tracks to the...

  • 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...
