  • Klee blog: Rockies sweep Brewers, Jeff Bridich digs Metallica

    Updated: Thu, Apr 9, 2015

    After watching 28 innings of (winning!) Rockies baseball, only one request: Rob Deer bobblehead Sunday at Miller Park better be big.  Other than that, the first series of this Rockies season was just this side of perfect. They swept the Brewers, thanks to a 5-4...

  • Klee: Dallas investigation or not, Denver Broncos should cut Aqib Talib

    Updated: Wed, Apr 8, 2015

    DENVER — Oh, he can ball. The anticipatory reflexes Aqib Talib flashed when he Pick Six'ed the Jets in Week 6? Like a tutorial on how to play cornerback in the NFL. Playing football is never the question with Talib. Wasn't then, isn't now. Whether he ranks as the fourth-best...

  • Klee blog: See… the positives! Rockies win, stay undefeated

    Updated: Tue, Apr 7, 2015

    See, I was being serious. There are plenty of positives with this Rockies club. Roughly all of them — save Corey Dickerson lacing doubles between innings, even if it felt that way — erupted Monday afternoon in Milwaukee: Rockies 10, Brewers 0. The National League's...

  • Klee: Opening day, fresh starts and the Colorado Rockies

    Updated: Sun, Apr 5, 2015

    DENVER — Today is Easter Sunday. I love Easter Sunday. It's my favorite of the holidays, and, next to fishing, the best reason to be somewhere beautiful at sunrise. I'll be at Red Rocks. You? Colorado baseball's opening day is Monday. Roughly 24 hours from now, give or take, the...

  • Klee: Patience a virtue with these Final Four coaches

    Updated: Sun, Apr 5, 2015

    DENVER - Imagine, real quick, if Mike Krzyzewski were finishing his third season as the coach at Duke. He has yet to reach the NCAA Tournament, yet to finish higher than fifth in the Atlantic Coast Conference, yet to show he belongs. That's how Coach K's first three seasons went at...

  • Friday Faceoff: Who is the best coach in the Final Four?

    Gazette Columnists Paul Klee and David Ramsey square off.

  • Klee: A polite request for the NFL, and Broncos, to be better

    Updated: Sun, Mar 29, 2015

    DENVER - The Super Bowl opened with accusations of cheating and closed with a brawl in the end zone. The Bears just signed an alleged woman beater; the Cowboys just signed a convicted one. A former Patriots star is on trial for murder. The next major acquisition is coming, whenever...

  • Klee: International scouting not a foreign idea to Denver Nuggets

    Updated: Wed, Mar 25, 2015

    DENVER — The Nuggets held practice Tuesday, and a Rosetta Stone commercial broke out. Joffrey Lauvergne, a rookie forward, celebrated a swished 3 with a French superlative. Patrick Mutombo, an assistant, confirmed he speaks seven languages. Jusuf Nurkic claims he can't get into...

  • Klee: For Broncos running back C.J. Anderson, gift to grandma is one for a lifetime

    Updated: Tue, Mar 24, 2015

    DENVER — Her old ride didn't have air conditioning. The emergency brake failed years ago, and passing emissions testing was a pipe dream. Barbara Gaddies is 71, and her '97 Saturn sat low enough that she had trouble climbing into the driver's seat. So C.J. Anderson, the Broncos...

  • Klee: Can Air Force reach the NCAA Tournament again? Probably not

    Updated: Sun, Mar 22, 2015

    DENVER — It's a cute, noble idea, the notion that college athletics are conducted on an even playing field. So is the theory "Yes, we can" bridge the aisle in Washington. So is two months paid vacation, or fresh powder every day. So is the Easter bunny. My esteemed colleague, Mr....
