It’s that time of year when Colorado experiences the most moisture of the year. This year however Colorado seems to be experiencing a fairly mild winter, with some days feeling more like spring than winter.
We all know what spring brings, green grass, white chalk lines, peanuts and hotdogs. The 2018 Colorado Rockies season is just around the corner not to mention everyone’s favorite precursor to the baseball season, March Madness.
Sports fans from coast to coast will experience sports overload in the upcoming months, with the boys of summer, MLS, College Basketball’s March Madness, the NBA season finals, the NHL finals, and of course who can forget the NFL scouting combine and draft.
The Colorado Rockies made some moves in the off-season by signing pitcher Wade Davis to a three-year, $52 million deal. Additionally the Rockies picked up a fan favorite in catcher Chris Iannetta to a two-year contract. Iannetta spent the last couple seasons with division foes, the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Last Tuesday the Colorado Rapids faced the Toronto FC for the CONCACAF Champions League round-of-16 first leg at Dicks Sporting Goods Park for the coldest recorded game in MLS history. The temperature and the Rapids were cold as Toronto beat Colorado 2 – 0 with temperatures dipping into the teens.

The Denver Nuggets are three games behind the division leading Minnesota Timberwolves and two games behind the Portland Trailblazers and the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Nuggets are primed to make a post season push this year and with 22 games left they still have a chance to catch the division leading Timberwolves. The Nuggets are on the road this Friday until next Tuesday. First up, the Nuggets will head to Memphis to face the Grizzlies then move on Cleveland to face the Cavaliers before ending their three game road trip in Dallas to face the Mavericks.
The Colorado Avalanche are second to last in the Central Division standing with 33 wins and 24 losses. Despite the Avs being 5 games behind the Division-leading Nashville Predators, they will likely miss the post-season with 20 games left on the schedule; however, anything can happen.
The Denver Broncos are looking to potentially trade Trevor Siemian and although the details are vague it is possible they will end up trading last-year’s starting quarterback as they try to make cap room for either a draft pick at QB or in free agency. Either way, the Broncos are expected to add a new quarterback(s) to their roster.
