Mile High Punditry

So with the maximum likelihood analysis pointing toward a playoff game against Denver, it is hard not to remember our good friend Bill Johnson who once parachuted in from Denver to cover the last playoff game we had against Denver in 2006. 

Bill looks to have survived the demise of the Rocky Mountain News for whom he came here for back then, but moved on to the Denver Post.  Of note he appears to have only recently resigned from the Denver Post as well.   

Bill was actually not a sports beat guy, but more of an all around pundit out in Denver.  Does this mean we need to send Brian O. off to Denver if this game happens? If we are the Paris of Appalachia, certainly Denver must be the...??...  Zurich of the Denver Basin?

and since his previous employer has dropped off the DNS master index, I can't reproduce a link.. but to be fair, Mr. Johnson had a follow up column after he got back that was pretty positive on his ever more notorious experience here.

The Pittsburgh of the Front Range?

Denver, like Pittsburgh, is a regional capital of a smallish region (by population--the geographic size of the Denver region is much bigger).
