  • Ramsey: Lewis-Palmer's baseball title hopes crushed by philosophical ace

    DENVER - On a rare clear morning in May, Lewis-Palmer's baseball team was optimistic, and with good reason. The Rangers had devoured their last three opponents to arrive in the 4A state baseball final. On Wednesday, players were working off tension at L-P's batting cage, killing a few minutes before they stepped on the school bus for a ride to...

  • Ramsey: Bill Tierney gleefully defies lacrosse history, brings national title to the University of Denver

    Denver's Bill Tierney, the emperor of American lacrosse, is celebrating his seventh NCAA title. It's a historical triumph, the first by a school in our nation's heartland.

  • Ramsey: Will Nuggets draft a superstar? History screams no

    Josh Kroenke looked stunned and confused and disappointed. In short, he looked like a Denver Nuggets fan. On Tuesday night, Kroenke hoped to climb to the top of the NBA draft lottery. Instead, the basketball powers from above handed Kroenke, the Nuggets struggling mastermind, the No. 7 pick in the upcoming draft. For reasons that are obvious...

  • Ramsey: Cheyenne Mountain's Hannah Gerdin appreciates winning her third soccer title

    COMMERCE CITY - Hannah Gerdin is an expert when it comes to state soccer titles. She's won three during her spectacular career at Cheyenne Mountain, which gives her the luxury of comparing the times she ruled Colorado.

  • Ramsey: Hope lifted Cheyenne Mountain's fallen girls' soccer team

    Hope isn't always logical. Hope is always powerful. Want proof? Just look at Cheyenne Mountain's once-hopeless girls' soccer team. Coach Tomas Martinez had little concrete reason to believe in his team in early April. A proud program was wandering around lost. And we're talking about really lost. Martinez believed anyway, refused to...

  • Ramsey: Brianna Alger blast was all cushion Lewis-Palmer needed to face Cheyenne Mountain in girls' soccer 4A state final

    PARKER - Brianna Alger was standing 25 yards from the goal. Her coach, Ryan Parsons, had a strong idea of what was going to happen next: A goal.

  • Ramsey blog: Bowlen important to Broncos, but many others are more important

    I'm glad Pat Bowlen will join the Bronco Ring of Fame. He deserves the honor. But, please, let's not get carried away. Let's not get sentimental. Bowlen never caught a pass, never threw a touchdown, never devised a game plan. He's an important piece in Broncos history, but there are a dozen, at least, more important pieces. And there's...

  • Ramsey: Colorado College Tigers' most important hockey games will be against Air Force

    Colorado College just announced its schedule for the 2015-2016 season. The Tigers, fresh off 26 losses, will battle hockey powers from across our great nation. You could call this brutal schedule courageous. Or you could call it reckless. Either way, you would be correct. Let's make this clear: The most important games of the Tigers...

  • Ramsey blog: 'Proof' and Tom Brady and deflategate

    I keep hearing from Patriots fans and unattached skeptics who want to see "proof" that Tom Brady knew about the tampering of footballs. This reminds me of the days when Lance Armstrong supporters and unattached skeptics wanted "proof" that Armstrong had juiced his way all those Tour de France titles. Or the day when Barry Bonds supporters...
