  • Klee: Winning still trumps all in college sports

    Updated: Sun, Apr 13, 2014

    DENVER — Maybe you've never heard of Royce Waltman. Let's change that. The first story is a minor one. It was just another basketball game in the Missouri Valley Conference, one of the 289 Waltman coached over a decade at Indiana State. His team had lost. In the visitors locker...

  • Klee: New motto for Buffs football: Keep Sefo safe

    Updated: Fri, Apr 11, 2014

    BOULDER - The Jay-Z spitting from the speakers has been turned off. In positional cliques, the Buffs exit the practice field, helmets in hand. Sefo Liufau has class in 40 minutes. To get there in time, he must climb a hill. It's steep, gravelly and should make the University of...

  • KLEE: How to rebuild Nuggets? Go fishing

    Updated: Tue, Apr 8, 2014

    DENVER - Perhaps the fondest memories of Brian Shaw's childhood are from a river, or a lake, or the closest splash of water that looked fishy. They are memories of tackle boxes and sack lunches. His grandfather was there. So was his father. Li'l Brian was there, fishing rod in hand,...

  • KLEE: Problem with Rockies ownership is proficiency, not passion

    Updated: Sun, Apr 6, 2014

    DENVER — This is Dick Monfort's element, on a party deck at 5,280 feet. That's what the purple sign says: 5280. Judging by the detail of the two bars, 52 beer taps and Vegas-style cabanas, we're left to assume he's had someone measure. On The Rooftop, a 38,000-square foot frat...

  • Klee: At first base for the Rockies ... Justin Morneau

    Updated: Fri, Apr 4, 2014

    DENVER - The location of the first baseman's locker is the same. It's there, over in the right corner, near the YouTube-playing computer where Nolan Arenado assumes DJ duties. It's next to Michael Cuddyer's locker and takes up two cubbies. The first baseman's locker has less...

  • Klee: NBA's one-and-done dilemma offers no easy solution

    Updated: Thu, Apr 3, 2014

    DENVER — It's 7 a.m. The Nuggets don't practice until 10. Lester Conner, an assistant coach, enters the third-floor gym at Pepsi Center with a pre-practice workout plan for a young player. This is the NBA, so the basketball itinerary must be newfangled and advanced and above the...

  • Klee: Avalanche fans return good ol' days to Pepsi Center

    Updated: Thu, Apr 3, 2014

    DENVER — Oh, to be a fly on the wall. On rickety, front-porch rocking chairs, the old-timers in charge of the Avalanche counseling the young'uns on the good ol' days: Patrick Roy telling Semyon Varlamov what it's like to punch a Red Wing. Joe Sakic, mussing the floppy hair of his...

  • Klee: Colorado Rockies show more 'ifs' than sure things

    Updated: Mon, Mar 31, 2014

    DENVER - If ifs, ands and buts were candy and nuts, the Rockies would bake a sweet cake as NL West champions in 2014. If only. The Rockies are 21 seasons young. They are legal now. If they want to be taken seriously - as a franchise with winning aspirations, not just party plans -...

  • KLEE: John Elway shaping Broncos with 'absolute confidence'

    Updated: Fri, Mar 28, 2014

    DENVER — John Elway no longer is the Duke. John is a Don. Don John. It is, we've learned with these Broncos, his guy or the highway. This is their way, and it has evolved into a winning way. Their roster appears Super Bowl-worthy, again. Don John doesn't mess around. Not then,...

  • Klee: God cares about sports and positive things it provides

    Updated: Sat, Mar 22, 2014

    Yes, yes, a thousand times yes! God cares about sports. He cares deeply about sports. He cares about music, arts, science, history. Sports aren't separate. Why else would he give us John Elway's arm, Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf's jumper, Todd Helton's swing? Hannah, ask your folks to YouTube...
