Threw in the towel. Waved the white flag. Told the world enough is enough.

Watch it again. Google "Cam Newton Dive Fumble" and 10 videos pop up, voila. The evidence is as clear as the 212 diamonds in Denver's Super Bowl rings:

Carolina's quarterback took two steps forward (toward the bouncing ball) and two hops back (away from the swirling mass of bodies pursuing a fumble caused by Miller).

That's how the Broncos won Super Bowl 50, the same way they won 14 other games, by beating you up and wearing you down, like an older brother and a younger brother in the backseat during a long road trip that Mom and Dad promised would

<![CDATA[Klee: Tyler Chatwood, All-Star snub, latest victim of Coors Field]]> http://gazette.com/klee-tyler-chatwood-all-star-snub-latest-victim-of-coors-field/article/1580217?custom_click=rss http://gazette.com/klee-tyler-chatwood-all-star-snub-latest-victim-of-coors-field/article/1580217?custom_click=rss

DENVER - Rockies starter Tyler Chatwood deserved a spot in Major League Baseball's All-Star Game.

He didn't get one, and that's fine. Among the topics worth getting riled up about, All-Star nods and Hall of Fame votes rank down near the Bachelorette's decisions in terms of worldly importance. Lord knows we have bigger things to fret about.

(Good morning, Von. Need a pen?)

But Chatwood? He deserved it. Friday will mark two months since ol' Chatty allowed a home run. That's 50 innings ago, a very long time. Check this out, too: Chatwood owns the best road ERA in the National League, a dazzling 1.30. This season he hasn't lost a road game (5-0) and, at one point, had strung together the longest road scoreless streak by a

<![CDATA[Klee: Greatest in a generation? Tim Duncan, and that's a fact]]> http://gazette.com/klee-greatest-in-a-generation-tim-duncan-and-thats-a-fact/article/1580101?custom_click=rss http://gazette.com/klee-greatest-in-a-generation-tim-duncan-and-thats-a-fact/article/1580101?custom_click=rss

DENVER — The only gray area with Tim Duncan was above his hairline.

Everything else we knew for fact. It was a fact his Spurs would always be good. It was a fact his only scandal in Colorado was whether he’d play the second night of a back-to-back. It was a fact he never committed a foul, or so his shrug said.

Tim Duncan was The Big Given.
