“Don’t believe everything you think.” – Popular bumper sticker As Markieff Morris flew to the floor, I admittedly stood up and started cheering and clapping. Nikola Jokic looked as incensed as I felt. My poor 81-year old father, who had fallen asleep in a chair across the room, was suddenly sitting up and trying to decide who was attacking and…...

“April First. The day upon which we are reminded of what we are on the other three hundred and sixty-four.” – Mark Twain On April Fool’s Day 2021, the Atlanta Braves played a bit of a goof on their fanbase, losing their season opener in extra innings at the Phillies.

“The opposite of poverty is not wealth; the opposite of poverty is enough.”  — Dr. Wess Stafford 25 years ago, when the National Basketball Association celebrated their 50th Anniversary, they named the NBA’s “Top 50 at 50” list. The list was filled with luminaries from across a star-studded history, with the requisite arguments and gnashing of teeth ensuing over who was...

DNVR: Welcome back to Nuggets basketball! Even with the last three seasons being packed so tightly together, you seem to be very ready to get back to basketball. Is that right? Katy Winge: Well, when you say I’m “ready”, I think what I’m ready for is that feeling of normalcy. I think that cliche, “you don’t know what you’ve got...

“Happiness comes from helping others, by being with others, and by sharing, even if it’s only a smile.” – Zain Hashmi In the early 2000’s, a well-known Fortune 100 company had diversified itself to a point that it had literally dozens of small businesses inside of it. Each of those “business within a business” verticals had their own leaders, salespeople, marketers, and more. At an end of year summit, several of those leaders realized in conversation that their business units had faced a number of similar setbacks and successes. They also realized just how much work had been done repeatedly by their people that had been unnecessary, and how much money they’d missed out on by not simply sharing their…

Celebrity, to me, is not a thing to seek. Aidan Quinn One of the most interesting wrinkles in today’s society is the emergence of celebrity of popularity. Whether on screen or getting paid to associate your name with something, the number of followers you have is often far more important than the number of accomplishments you bring to the table....

This week, an NBA MVP big man who stayed loyal to the mid-market team who drafted him took a carefully constructed cast of characters, including a star point guard, and lights-out wing shooter, and carried his team to an NBA Championship with a dominating and decisive performance. The only thing that could have made it better would have been the...

When both of my daughters were little girls, I bought them a swingset to put up in the backyard. Having had one as a kid, the pieces were completely obvious coming out of the box. Between the picture on the front and the pieces in front of me, I hardly even needed the directions. Less than an hour later, I...

It was the f—ing Penguin that was screwing with me. No, not the Penguins. Not the Pittsburgh Penguins. Not them. Not a rogue Denver Zoo runaway from the Aviary. No. THE Penguin. Batman’s second-worst arch enemy. That son of a bird had been f—ing with my eight-year old self all summer long. Pepsi had put out a set of collector’s cups with most all of the great DC characters, and I had spent the summer drowning in cups of the far-less-superior cola just to try and collect them. I’d managed to get 13 of the 14 without too many duplicates, but the fahrfugnuggen Penguin was constantly eluding me. I didn’t even like the Penguin, but my who-knew-he-was-OCD self was pretty…

“Give me one man from among ten thousand if he is the best.” – Heraclitus I well remember where I was at the night that Halley’s Comet passed by earth in 1986, as I was just starting to fall in love with astronomy and astrophysics at the deepest dumb-it-down for me level. The rarity of the Halley’s event combined with...

“The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.” – Aristotle, sort of As a kid, I grew up watching a ton of cartoons, especially on Saturday mornings during my second or third giant bowl of Fruity Pebbles (don’t judge me). The capstone of my Saturday funfest was Voltron, a Japanese series that was rewritten and revoiced for American...
