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 August…

Good Stuff

Chad Bettis
As if beating cancer wasn’t baller enough, Bettis came out and threw seven shutout innings in his return to the mound.

Standing Up for Kneeling
John Elway stood behind his players’ right to protest, putting our right to free speech ahead of the team’s bottom line.

That’s Teamwork
Martin Truex Jr. and Erik Jones finished 2nd and 3rd, respectively, in the Pure Michigan 400, Furniture Row’s best-ever team finish.

Air Attack
Athlon sports named the Colorado Buffaloes the No. 3 wide receiving corps in college football in their preseason ranking.

Settled at Starter
There was no quarterback competition in Fort Collins, as redshirt senior Nick Stevens is clearly the man for the Rams this year.

Bad Stuff

Divided Loyalties
The competition between Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch had Broncos fans spitting venom on social media.

Making It Interesting
Once on track for the best record in franchise history, the Rockies look like they’ll take their postseason bid down to the wire.

The Nuggets “new” uniforms (and the corporate sponsor patch adorning them) were met with lukewarm reviews from fans.

Censored Airwaves
Half of Denver’s local sports radio stations are now owned by the teams they “cover.” Goodbye objectivity; hello company line!

Trust in the Wrong Place
The Rockies offense hit a rough patch when home runs dried up. They should know better than to rely on the Dinger.

Last Month Summed Up In One Quote

“…they don’t grow on trees. There are not quarterbacks grown on trees out there, so there wasn’t another answer.” – John Elway on his quarterbacks
