Paul Klee's rapid reactions from Southern California after the Broncos beat the Chargers: 1. Colorado’s long nightmare is over, and Vic Fangio celebrated his first win as a head coach with hugs from his players. The losing streak ended after eight games and 308 days. And the Broncos were not afraid to trash talk the Chargers through every second of a mostly lopsided win Sunday afternoon at Dignity Health Sports Park. The Broncos had not won a game since Dec. 2, 2018, so it’s no wonder Kareem Jackson was feeling his oats after a touchdown-saving tackle of Austin Ekeler to close the first half. Denver’s defense locked up the win with a clutch goal-line stand, and the Broncos are back on the board. Just one question: What took so long?2. One key to the Broncos' rebuild: keeping Mike Munchak around. If the offensive line guru is strutting around UCHealth Training Center, no one should blink an eye. The most important acquisition of the offseason, Munchak is molding … [Read more...] about Broncos 20, Chargers 13 (Broncos win! Broncos win!)

Soon the beauty of fall will be gone, the festive holidays a memory. The snow will have outstayed its welcome, and the world outside will be pale and cold. For those of us in the Mountain West, February, the shortest month, can be 28 long days of despair.That’s when the road south calls.I heard the call while reading “The Log from the Sea of Cortez,” John Steinbeck’s account of cruising the sea in a sardine boat, dropping anchor in Mexican villages and collecting marine specimens along the way.I didn’t have a boat, but I did have a Prius. And a plan. I would set out from my home near Denver, steering a course south into Arizona to investigate a strangely lush canyon, then head into Mexico to explore the driest place in North America and finally alight on the Sea of Cortez. It all seemed a world away as I motored down icy Interstate 25, hugging the eastern side of the Rocky Mountains through sprawling Colorado Springs, gritty Pueblo and charming Trinidad, … [Read more...] about Heading south in Steinbeck’s footsteps, with a Prius and a plan
