Norm’s Notes: Greinke gone Wild Card and Spilly’s ‘stache

You want the straight dope, sports fans? I’ll give it to you.

You gotta question? I’ll answer it. But don’t be surprised when it’s not the same fluffy, politically correct baloney most of my media colleagues dish up.

Any time you need to know anything, feel free to shoot me a note. Email [email protected], write “Question for Norm” in the subject line, and hopefully Ottewill will forward it to me.

(Note that after 15 years, nobody here is entirely comfortable with me having a company email address; I’d give you my AOL account, but I like to save that for the internet’s “adult” opportunities as well as my wife’s QVC habit, which is best when monitored.)

Here’s what you people asked me this week…

Where will you be watching the Rockies game tonight?
Anywhere the beer is cold and I don’t have to look at Spilly’s disgusting mustache.

Did we jump the gun on our assessment of Trevor “Pro Bowler” Siemian?
No, but we did with Derek “My Back is Built Like Tony Romo’s” Carr.

If given the chance, would you try to get Zack Greinke’s autograph?
Is he writing me a check?

Were you surprised the Nuggets handled Golden State so easily in the first preseason game?
Let’s just say I’m glad I didn’t buy stock in Friendster.

What happened to the Rapids this season?
Not enough snowpack.  

Thursday Night Football or Avs vs. Rangers?
Make mine the Avs. Hockey games are over faster. And by the way, this is your one shot to impress me, Bednar.
