Founded in 2003, the Colorado Mammoth are celebrating their 15th season in the National Lacrosse League (NLL) this 2018/2019 season. They have made the playoffs in all but one of their years in existence. They captured the NLL championship in 2006 and won division titles in 2003, 2004, and 2007. It’s been a while since they’ve placed a banner on the rafters.
University of Denver (DU) Pioneers are more known for their ice hockey, lacrosse, and skiing teams; not so much their basketball team. That doesn’t mean a fan should forego attending a basketball game at the impressive Magness Arena which opened in 1999. The experience is a positive one.
A shout out to the Devils New Jersey Devils and the Prudential Center for hosting an American Sign Language (ASL) day on January 19th, 2019 when the Anaheim Ducks come to town.
The Air Force Academy Falcons play their basketball games at Clune Arena which is part of the Cadet Field House that also houses the hockey rink for the AFA hockey team and an indoor track. The Falcons basketball team plays in the NCAA Division I Mountain West Conference. The Falcon’s have played basketball since the 1956-57 season, a year after the establishment of the Air Force Academy. There is something special and patriotic about watching any Falcons game, and the men’s basketball game and venue is no exception.
Coors Field is the home of the Colorado Rockies of the National League West division of MLB (Major League Baseball). Coors Field celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2015. Still a new stadium, yes? Even so, it is the third oldest National League ballpark in MLB only being built after Wrigley Field (1914) and Dodgers Stadium (1962) and before all the other current National League baseball parks. The stadium is a similar architecture of Camden Yards with the red brick and the green seats. Coors Field was the first stadium where outfield seats were placed facing towards the infield (it was an innovative idea at the time).
