  • Rocktober redux with the Royals? Rethink that

    We've seen this before, right? The kneejerk reaction from many is to compare the streaking Kansas City Royals to the 2007 Colorado Rockies. With so many parallels, it's no wonder. These Royals have won eight postseason games in a row and find themselves ready to open the World Series against San Francisco on Tuesday. Seven years ago Colorado...

  • Palmer Ridge field hockey backed by goalie Cheradyn Pettit in advancing to semifinals

    Monument - Right off the bat, Cherry Creek took to the attack. Lucky for Palmer Ridge, Cheradyn Pettit was in goal. The senior goalie stopped eight of nine shots, including a diving save in the opening minutes, to help the No. 3 Bears defeat No. 6 Cherry Creek 3-1 on Monday in the first round of the state field hockey playoffs. Pettit and...

  • With TD mark in bag, Manning can set more recordsMore records in Manning's sights

    DENVER - Next up for Peyton Manning: the NFL passing yardage record. It's one of the few glamorous passing records Manning doesn't own, now that he has broken Brett Favre's mark for touchdown throws. Manning needs about 5,000 more yards to surpass Favre in that category, and is on track to finish his career with numbers, across the board, that...

  • Arizona blanks L.A. in USL Pro exhibition at revamped stadium of Colorado Springs Switchbacks

    In what was a spirited, if at times scrappy game, Arizona United SC defeated Los Angeles Galaxy II 1-0 in the Colorado Pro Soccer Kickoff on Saturday evening. Hosted at the Colorado Springs Switchback FC's freshly redeveloped Sand Creek Stadium, the match was a preview of two teams whom the Switchbacks FC will face next season as Colorado...

  • 10 takeaways from Air Force's win over New Mexico

    Here's a look back at some of the highlights from Air Force's 35-31 Mountain West Conference win Saturday over New Mexico at Falcon Stadium: THE NUMBERS 0 - Times Air Force had trailed at home through three games, a run that ended when New Mexico scored the game’s first touchdown after 2 minutes, 48 seconds. 4 - Turnovers caused this...

  • Air Force outscores New Mexico behind fullbacks, passing game and late defense

    Jalen Robinette reached up over his head at about the 15-yard line and hauled in a pass in stride. From there, he just played by feel. He shrugged off an attempted tackle when a cornerback tried to grab his shoulders, he then stopped on a dime, sending another defensive back flying by him. Only one New Mexico defender was left, and the...

  • Ramsey: Air Force could make noise in less-than-mighty Mountain West

    The Mountain West is stumbling through a down football year. Meanwhile, Air Force celebrates a rise, partially because the Falcons could only climb after a horrific 2013 season. This football revival has weight. The Falcons are hungry and surprisingly versatile on offense. Suddenly, it's in style to express faith in Air Force. Jordan...

  • Region has top three seeds in 4A; No. 4 seed in 5A boys' soccer

    If Air Academy coach Espen Hosoien had been told before the season that his Kadets would wind up with the No. 1 seed in the Class 4A playoffs he probably would have said it was a possibility. If someone had told The Classical Academy coach Blake Galvin that his Titans would garner the No. 2 seed in their first venture into 4A? "No chance,...

  • Ramsey: Records are nice, but a Super Bowl win is what Peyton's legacy needs

    DENVER - The shouting and hugging and rejoicing began in the south end zone at Mile High and millions soon joined the fun all across our state. Peyton Manning had thrown his 509th touchdown pass, breaking Brett Favre's record and starting talk once again about No. 18's place in NFL history. He's magnificent. No doubt about that. But...

  • Jenn Sterger takes shot at Favre after Manning breaks touchdown record

    Peyton Manning is taking down Brett Favre's records, but Jenn Sterger continues to take down Brett Favre. The Broncos quarterback passed Favre to become the all-time touchdown pass leader on Sunday, but Sterger, the former sideline reporter for the Jets who claimed in 2010 that Favre sent her suggestive text messages and explicit pictures of...

  • Blog: Peyton Manning the big story, but Broncos defense in big picture

    Sunday night at Mile High was one to remember, the smartphones (and sometimes iPads) recording history, Peyton Manning's premeditated celebration, an utter rout of the San Francisco 49ers. There was so much going on with Manning's offense, the most important development went largely overlooked: the Broncos defense added another six sacks....
