  • Klee: Why not us? Ray Bourque gets an assist for Avs' revival

    Updated: Wed, Mar 12, 2014

    DENVER — Where did this all begin, this stirring revival of the Colorado Avalanche? Try a restaurant. But not just any restaurant. Not some chain joint in Park Meadows with wall photos of the staff’s sixth-place softball team, or even the hot new spot in LoDo, complete with $18 Rocky...

  • Klee: Eric Decker, Shaw's Nuggets and The Kid

    Updated: Sun, Mar 9, 2014

    DENVER — Codeine cough syrup prevents driving and clear thought. But it has a profound effect on tying flies. So, after a few down days with a cough from hell, my streamer boxes are sufficiently full for April, May and into June's runoff. And now I'm feeling fine, thanks. Just don't...

  • Klee: Champ Bailey gone but worth remembering

    Updated: Thu, Mar 6, 2014

    DENVER — When I remember Champ Bailey's career with the Broncos, the memory will be this. Prior to each practice, whether in training camp's August heat or December's breezy chill, Champ would stroll from the locker room to the east sideline, then stop, suddenly. He would lean on his...

  • KLEE: Time to bust the bracket, tweak NCAA Tournament

    Updated: Fri, Feb 28, 2014

    DENVER - Fixing college basketball won't be easy. That's OK; we have time, and with million-dollar TV contracts, the game's not going anywhere. The new freedom-of-movement rules eventually will offer a nice measure of progress. Someday, hopefully, we'll straighten out the crooked...

  • KLEE: UCCS basketball star Derrick White makes normal cool again

    Updated: Fri, Feb 28, 2014

    DENVER — If you have the dirt on Derrick White, please shoot me an email: paul.klee@gazette.com. Because I can't find any. There's no arrest record. He didn't grow up in a sketchy neighborhood ruled by drugs. There's no paycheck-to-paycheck childhood in a single-parent home. There's...

  • Klee: A brother's love brings state title to Discovery Canyon

    Updated: Sat, Feb 22, 2014

    DENVER — Who's the noisy guy? Who's the dude in the Discovery Canyon letterman's jacket hollering like he's trying to catch a cab? Who's he hugging . and why won't he let go? "When I won state ." Steve Turner's voice trailed off. "This is 10 times better than that." This is his...

  • Klee: Anyone seen the Gold Pan? The DU-CC hockey mystery continues

    Updated: Fri, Feb 21, 2014

    DENVER — The stories, more fable than fact, often surface on winter nights over a beer. They are tall tales, the Sasquatches and Nessies of college hockey in Colorado. Matt Tabrum has heard the stories. He's heard the wild, varied claims of how the original Gold Pan "might've"...

  • KLEE: Denver Nuggets in a sad, mysterious state

    Updated: Wed, Feb 19, 2014

    DENVER - This is the state of the Denver Nuggets. "Even if everybody does what we want them to do, even if everybody plays the best game they could possibly play, it's still going to be tough for us to win games, being honest," Brian Shaw said after a rough draft of the Nuggets...

  • Klee: Life lessons learned from Cheyenne Mountain state champion

    Updated: Sat, Feb 15, 2014

    FORT COLLINS - As she climbed to the top podium, the one reserved for the state champion, Sydney Buckley did a very Sydney Buckley thing. She tried to pull the runner-up to the top step, alongside her, arm in arm. It made for the perfect capper to a remarkable high school swimming...

  • Klee: Broncos Country needs perspective, not a pity party

    Updated: Mon, Feb 10, 2014

    DENVER - When the day comes to induct Pat Bowlen into the Broncos Ring of Fame, a fraternity he created, the team owner will argue his own selection. In a statement, probably, Bowlen will defer to ambiguities like "this has always been about the fans" and "the players and coaches...
