Denver has its very own local sports television station, Altitude Sports & Entertainment. It is actually owned by the same person as the Denver Nuggets, Colorado Avalanche and the Colorado Rapids, the major league soccer team in town. Therefore, you get the best local coverage of all the teams.
28. My Brother's Bar
