Being a sports fan in the State of Colorado is a blessing not only because we have a sports team for every season and then some, but also because we have competitive sports teams year in and year out.

Even when our favorite team is having an off year, there always seems to be a failsafe of local teams to fall back on.

Colorado is probably one of the most beautiful states among the lower 48, and a lot of that has to do with our beautiful spring and summers, however it’s the fall and winter months where Colorado is jam packed with sport venues across the state.

We all love the boys of summer and when you have athletes like Nolan Arenado and DJ LeMahieu winning Gold Gloves for the 2018 season it’s not difficult to see why Rockies fans are counting down the days, minutes and hours to Spring Training.

The Rockies fell short in the post-season to the Milwaukee Brewers, losing all three games in the Wild-Card round. Despite Colorado’s early exit, fans are optimistic about next season’s team.

The Denver Broncos who have two more games this season including Monday night (had not been played at the time of this writing), had an extremely bumpy season. After starting out 3-1 in their first four games the Broncos lost a string of close games to great opponents. The brunt of those losses were placed solely on the shoulders of Coach Vance Joseph and his name ran the gambit of media mud.

Regardless of Denver’s inability to get to the post-season for a second year straight, Bronco fans have a lot to be optimistic about. New names to the squad like, Cortland Sutton, Phillip Lindsay, and Bradley Chubb have all made those game that the Broncos lost much more bearable.

While we have hardly reached the halfway mark for the Colorado Avalanche and the Denver Nuggets’ seasons, fans are pleased at the current outcome. The Denver Nuggets are pressing last years Champs (Golden State Warriors) for the top spot in the National Western Conference and doing so by beating the top teams. The Nuggets have beaten the Warriors twice this season and have beaten the top team in the East (Toronto Raptors) once.

The Colorado Avalanche have won two of their last three after beating the Montreal Canadians on Wednesday night. There are five games remaining for the Avs this year three of which are at home with their game against the L.A. Kings falling on NYE at the Pepsi Center.

The Colorado Rapids announced yesterday that they have acquired Keegan Rosenberry from the Philadelphia Union in an effort to solidify their defense. The Rapids ended the 2018 season with 8 wins and 19 losses, earning half of the points conference-leading Sporting KC earned.

They may not all do as well as we’d like them to, but Colorado sports teams have some of the best athletes in the nation bar none.
