Good Stuff | Bad Stuff: Home Sweet Home and Goodbyes

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 July…

Good Stuff

Home Sweet Home
Paul Millsap held his introductory press conference at Montbello Rec Center, returning to his childhood home of 12 years.

Never Say Die
Although the Rockies are a ways back in the NL West, they entered the second half of the season with a comfortable lead on the Wild Card

Keep it in the Family
With the hiring of Dan Carey as their new GM, the Colorado Mammoth are getting someone who knows the franchise inside and out.

Preseason Hype
Both CU and CSU both have players on national award preseason watch lists in Phillip Lindsay (Maxwell Award) and Jake Bennett (Rimington Trophy).

Close Enough
Kyle Freeland didn’t complete his no-hitter, but he did enough to encourage fans about the strength of the Rockies’ starting rotation.

Bad Stuff

Gallo’s Goodbye
Fans were more than a little eager to kick Danilo Gallinari out the door as he left for the bright lights of Los Angeles.

Dangling Duchene
The Avs have had their star on the trading block for too long. Trade him or keep him, just give the man some certainty.

Mid-Summer Dingbat
The Rockies sent a franchise-record four players to Miami for the 2017 MLB All-Star Game. So why did they also send Dinger?

Summer League Sadness
Donavan Mitchell is showing out at the NBA Summer League while Tyler Lydon may as well be hiding.

Tube to Work Day
It seems like there’s more day drinking and less work going on in the tubes on Boulder Creek.
