Here at Mile High Sports, we’re constantly spanning the Centennial State to bring you the constant variety of sports. “The thrill of victory and the agony of defeat; the human drama of competition,” as the fella once said.

Each month we ask the staff at Mile High Sports to give us their highlights (and lowlights) from Colorado sports from the previous month.

Here’s what they had to say about June…

Good Stuff

Flying High
Having never won an ECHL playoff series previously, the Colorado Eagles went 16-4 in the playoffs to bring home their first Kelly Cup.

Firing on All Cylinders
Through one-third of the NASCAR season, Martin Truex Jr. of Furniture Row Racing sat atop the Monster Energy Cup Series driver points standings.

World Travels
Nuggets trainer Steve Hess tagged along with Nikola Jokic on a trip to the Serbian big man’s hometown, making for some great Instagram posts.

Water World
Temperatures are scorching this time of year. Be thankful we have one of the greatest water parks in the world in our own back yard.

Chad Bettis
The Rockies right-hander has finished his cancer treatment and resumed baseball activities. He’s a true champion, win or lose.

Bad Stuff

Competitive Imbalance
Greatness like Golden State’s is rare, but there’s just something that doesn’t feel right when it’s so manufactured.

Draft Lotteries
The Nuggets have never moved up, while the Avs got hosed this year after posting the worst record in the history of the shootout era.

Trade Talk
The Rockies have so many quality players and limited roster spots, there’s sure to be trade talk ad nauseam right up until the trade deadline.

We love PFM as host, but the awards have become a popularity contest instead of an objective way to recognize greatness across all sports.

The QB Battle
When was the last time a Super Bowl champion entered training camp without knowing who would be taking snaps in Week 1?

Last month summed up in one quote…

“It’s okay. It’s all right. Just keep watching.” – Manager Bud Black to anyone doubting that the Rockies are a legitimate contender
