Game on

Game on

No more squinting or craning your neck to see the action at Fort Lewis College’s Ray Dennison Field. The school recently upped it’s game day uh, game, with a new, full-color 13-by-25-foot LED video display.

While not exactly the Jumbotron at Ball Arena, the new display will offer replays, live action, stats and information, graphic special effects and general crowd pumping-upping, all in “115,000 vibrant pixels” according to a press release.

FLC purchased the display from Nevco Sports, a U.S.-based scoreboard company that also provided scoring upgrades to Whalen Gymnasium in 2018.

“We are focused on building a premier program of excellence … Projects like this enhance the student-athlete experience and assist our recruiting efforts,” FLC Director of Athletics Travis Whipple said. “Fort Lewis students, faculty, staff, alumni, fans and the community will benefit from this state-of-the-art video scoreboard.”

No word on whether the new display will feature the always-popular “kiss cam,” but maybe bring some breath mints just in case your neighbor wants to plant one on you at half time.

Crying wolf
02/29/2024

Since 10 wolves were reintroduced to northern Colorado this winter, there have been more than 50 reported sightings via an online form on the Colorado Parks and Wildlife website. Seeing as how it’s been a hot minute, or never, since most Coloradoans have seen a wolf, some reports have proven more helpful than others.

The long haul

Clocking in at 1.45 miles and 30 minutes of ducking and weaving through wall-to-wall people, shlepping from one end of DIA’s B Concourse to the other is no cake walk. But now, DIA travelers have someone to commiserate with. Apparently, Salt Lake City International Airport also has a B concourse with a death march from hell.
