Barely 10 days into the month, October has already been wild for the Colorado Rockies. On October 2nd they finished the 2016 season with their best record since 2010—albeit 12 games under .500. A day later, Walt Weiss stepped down as the team’s manager, citing a lack of a “cohesive” relationship...

John Elway, the player, knew a few things about freelancing on the field and getting hot at key moments of a game or a season—even when everyone watching couldn’t believe he had the audacity to make that throw, attempt that scramble, or call that audible.

On September 22, 1996, Jason Regier was flying down the highway outside Salt Lake City, doing about 75 mph, partway through the long drive from Denver to Corvallis, Oregon.
