Still the best game in town—and lately, the only one.
When ESPN Magazine unveiled its 13th annual Ultimate Standings this week, it didn't offer many surprises for Denver sports fans. As is often the case, the Broncos rule all, the Rockies and Nuggets are hide-your-eyes bad, and the Avs reside somewhere in the forgettable middle.
