I just wrote a post for Deadspin about Scottie Ewing, a former professional freestyle skier turned controversial Denver nightlife maven, and by “nightlife maven” I mean “owner of swingers’ clubs” and, sez the Feds, “former pimp.” You should go read it! Turns out that Denver is a crazy place, man: Maher’s Westword cover story on the swingers club...

If the NFC championship game can be played anywhere, why can’t the Super Bowl be played in a cold-weather atmosphere?” Aw, Eli has friends!

A whimsical bus mix-up resulted in a group of kids being taken to Six Flags Great Adventure instead of … school. Adventure of a lifetime, right?
