    DENVER — On Florida’s Space Coast, Karl Mecklenburg saw Orion belt into the stratosphere. “I’m here to see the rocket launch,” the Broncos iconic linebacker said last week from near Cape Canaveral. Mecklenburg lives at a mile high, in Littleton, and as a public-speaker-for-hire, the...

  • Klee with three things about the Broncos-Bills game

    Updated: Sun, Dec 7, 2014

    Who are the Bills? 1 We probably don't do this enough, and by we, I mean the media: The basics. Who are the Buffalo Bills? Here's a tutorial, since they are way over there, and we are way over here. The Bills last won a playoff game in 1995. Buffalo's starting quarterbacks since...

  • Klee: Colorado State football loses a good coach but still wins

    Updated: Thu, Dec 4, 2014

    DENVER — On their way to work today, Colorado State fans should rub their fingers together in the Johnny Manziel money sign. The Rams got three seasons from a money coach and, when Jim McElwain made the no-brainer decision to take the Florida job, CSU got stacks on stacks of money in...

    Updated: Mon, Dec 1, 2014

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. — There is an open bet going around the Broncos locker room. It involves Terrance Knighton, a hoop and a basketball — whether or not the 332-pound man they call "Pot Roast" can dunk on a regulation rim. "Go ahead and put your money in that pot!" Knighton said in the...

    Updated: Sun, Nov 30, 2014

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Sometimes it just takes one. One hug instead of a handshake, one heartfelt phone call, one person who believes. That's it, sometimes. Just one. C.J. Anderson, the best running back to play for the Broncos since Clinton Portis, had one. He had lots of ones, a...

  • Klee: CU runs past Air Force - but not away from playing Front Range teams

    Updated: Wed, Nov 26, 2014

    BOULDER — The sunset over the Flatirons sprayed a spectacular purple over Colorado's campus. The show was worth watching; it usually is. On the basketball rosters at Air Force and CU, 11 players have seen Colorado's sunsets for some, if not all, of their lives. Eleven players from...

  • Klee: Colorado Springs central to Buffs basketball revival

    Updated: Tue, Nov 25, 2014

    BOULDER — Wesley Gordon is telling a story. This is unusual, since Big Wes is not a storyteller. He's a listener, a watcher, and the Buffs are trying to break him of that. His story is about a rapper from Colorado Springs, naturally, since CU basketball right now is all about...

    Updated: Mon, Nov 24, 2014

    DENVER - Hope you enjoyed the show. Hope your mancaves and womancaves are littered in highlight videos from "Broncos 42, 49ers 17" and "Broncos 41, Cardinals 20" and even "Broncos 45, Redskins 21" and "Broncos 34, Saints 14" and "Broncos 37, Texans 13" from years past. Frame those...
