My family and I have lived here since late-2004. Much has changed, both for better and worse. We have always lived on the north-side of Denver (Westminster, Thornton and Broomfield), which fortunately has had more reasonably-priced real estate than the south-side. The south is more established and built up, but the north is catching up. Metro Denver is a brilliant place to live and start a family. The weather is almost perfect. The access to the outdoors is unlimited -- with both luxury and budget options. It's a nice mix of urban, suburban and rural.
It's common knowledge that the DTC area is a massive cluster for commuting. The population boom of the past 15 years has made most commutes at least a little rough. The DTC is one of the worst, though. If you have other employment options outside of the DTC, I'd explore them. I know ... this isn't helpful advice. Other posters probably have better advice for where to live than me, considering I have never lived south of Colfax. If you can live north, respond to this post, and I'll happily give a full breakdown of Broomfield, Westminster, Lafayette, Louisville, Superior, Erie, Thornton, etc. Boulder the County is a much a better option than the actual city of Boulder, where prices are silly and the university dominates.
I don't think a housing bubble is imminent. Too much demand, too little inventory. Unless a home is falling apart, prepare yourself for a bidding war.
If I was starting from scratch, and I didn't have kids, I'd bite the bullet and buy a 2-3 bedroom condo somewhere (trendy) in Denver. Once the kids were getting ready for Pre-K, I'd turn the condo into an investment/rental property, and move to some of the more suburban places people are suggesting.

We can make it.

But only when I'm in the shower, and no can hear me. Ever.

|06/01/2018 - 12:15pm||If Sparty goes 12-1,||
Lewerke will be a Hesiman candidate. If Michigan goes 12-1, Shea, BP or Higdon could be a Hesiman candidate. If Ohio State goes 12-1, JK Dobbins will be a Heisman candidate.
If the Queen had balls, she'd be the King.
Hypotheticals are fun. Here's another one -- if Izzo was a better coach, the front page banner of Mgoblog would look different.
|05/25/2018 - 4:52pm||My advice||
Don't feel the need to take anyone/everyone else's advice. All of us were born with parenting instincts. You'll be amazed by how much comes naturally.

Besides us, the conference currently has four legitimate top 15 teams. I want a schedule in which we play all of them. The best teams in our conference should play every year.
We have 2 teams at home, and 2 teams on the road. Seems decent.
That said, I prefer it if we played Ohio State and Michigan State at home in alternating years.

Seat 11 (or something).
An ending for the ages. The game, not so much.

|03/09/2018 - 12:02am||Last paragraph.||
Truly solid advice.

For the new rule to be 1000 (or more) point minimum to start a thread.
It's bad enough when our fanbase makes knee-jerk, faux-panic threads. Now we have MSU fans posting tinfoil hat nonsense threads ... oy!
|03/06/2018 - 6:21pm||Chartz? (NBA playoff layoffs ... say it 5 times quickly for fun)||
|03/06/2018 - 5:51pm||Here you go....||
Bottom line: "You can mention rust or use it as an excuse all you want, but the reality is that there’s scant evidence of it existing as a problem for NBA teams."
|02/04/2018 - 11:23pm||This is the greatest thread ...||
In the history of this blog.
I'm willing to bet that the parade in Philadelphia will be the biggest party in the history of this country. The Cubs victory parade may have more people, but this is going to be nuts.
|01/21/2018 - 7:10pm||You do understand||
That butthurt posts like this bring great joy to Eagles fans. Winning the popularity contest is exactly the opposite of what that fabase wants.
|01/21/2018 - 12:48pm||I hope Brandon Graham||
Eats your family.
|01/13/2018 - 2:46pm||May all of the Sparty "We're ranked #1!" threads||
Burn in a merciless couch fire.

There's going to be a lot of sad juggalos.

For not including Clowney and that thing that happened.

That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.
You should too.
|12/17/2017 - 11:35am||The Matrix move was very intentional.||
If you rewatch the scene, at no point does Luke's lightsaber actually touch Ren's lightsaber. Luke does not alter the salt. Luke does not physically alter the planet. Because he's not "there." That was the whole subtle point, almost like a Sixth Sense technique.
|12/11/2017 - 3:57pm||Very fair point||
I concede. We (Eagles fans) are not a likeable bunch. For me, I just love it when the players and coaches representing my teams give it their absolute all. This is why I love coaches like Harbaugh and players like Mike Hart. Athletes who exceed their god-given talents should be celebrated.
|12/11/2017 - 2:08pm||Stupid post, OP||
Stupid, stupid, stupid. Just stupid. It was not a designed run. If you actually watch the Eagles, you woud know that Wentz runs intentionally 2-3 times a game, at most. Wentz often slides feet-first when he's not trying to get a 1st down or a TD.
Seriously, what a world class stupid post! Moronic! Epicly moronic! Wentz was diving for the endzone in an effort to help his team take the lead in a huge road game against a team the Eagles are in direct competition for playoff seeding. Any QB that doesn't give it their all in that siutation is a QB that I don't want leading my team. This wasn't some meaningless play, in some meaningless game. Granted, it wasn't Elway getting turned into a helicopter in the Super Bowl, but the Eagles season was on the line. They were trailing. They just blew a 10-point halftime lead. Momentum had swung towards the Rams after Blake Countess returned a block punt for a TD. The Eagles D was on their heels. A FG would have been a defeat.
Win, and the Eagles win their division, and likely secure a first-round bye, maybe home-field. Lose, they probably are playing in the Wild Card round, and then facing two super-tough road games just to make the SB.
Such a stupid post. I wish you were forced to sit on the 50-yard at the old Veterans Stadium (RIP) wearing a dunce cap while all the 700-level drunks rained down boos at the top of their lungs. You deserve the Santa Claus treatment.
|12/10/2017 - 8:03pm||I'm banging everyone on this thread||
In exchange for the good karma needed to heal Carson Wentz.
|12/10/2017 - 7:59pm||YES!!!!||
The Blake Countess thread can suck the fattest of all the fatties.
|12/10/2017 - 7:20pm||Congrats||
To Morris, Trammell and Tigers fans.
This gives me delusional hope that both Chase Utley and Jimmy Rollins will be inducted into the class of 2037.
|12/08/2017 - 1:22pm||I have yet to meet an Iowa grad/fan||
That isn't salt of the Earth. I want Michigan to beat them on the field, but I wish nothing but good things for them otherwise.
|12/06/2017 - 12:58pm||Really cheering for Mo||
Love this kid's on-the-field play. Great motor. NFL-caliber first step. I really hope he gets drafted by the right team. He should excel in a 1-gap attacking system. When you add in that he was a two-time academic all-B1G guy, he seems like the full package. He gave our fanbase 5 years. He easily could have left last year for big money.
I'm going to miss Mo.
|12/06/2017 - 12:01pm||Finally, at long last||
I've been reading this site for years, and it was so frustrating that no one, ever, posted something about how recruiting success typically correlates to on-field success.
Thanks for the novel work, OP and TVH. And great job with the math stuff. Doing complex math like "averages" is way above my skill level.
|12/05/2017 - 12:38pm||For old farts like me...||
Love this. I wish we played Wisconsin every year. I love the rivalry. I love going to games in Madison. With the rare exception of a random idiot, their fanbase is passionate, reasonable, knowledgeable, and welcoming to Michigan fans.
Not to go all poetic, but to be the best, you need to beat the best, and they have been the best, in the West, for some time.
|12/05/2017 - 12:32pm||But Nebraska will "outhit" Wisconsin||
And for Scotty the Frost, that's all that will matter.

For Underrated comment.
Wawa is the holy grail of convenience stores. My kingdom for their coffee.
|11/19/2017 - 9:48am||Great post, OP||
Spot on. Great town. Great atmosphere. Tragic we don't play there every other year. People were 98% great. Stadium was loud, but not deafening. 11am start plus sluggish game seemed to be major factors. Student section eventually filed-in 100%, which is better than us for most games. I'd happily send my boys to Wisconsin, if they got accepted and wanted to go.
|10/21/2017 - 12:54am||White pants||
Plus white shirts. Set to a "white out" backdrop? Bad idea.
Now, maize pants on a white backdrop .... ah ha! Albeit arbitrary, I'm giving Jon Falk the credit.
|09/23/2017 - 8:29pm||I third this question||
Who was #96? No name on jersey.
I will buy a hot dog for whoever gives me the answer.
|09/21/2017 - 4:07pm||Sometimes bad calls seems less bad with time||
This is the opposite.
What a garbage call. Complete chickensh*t call by the ref.
Thanks a lot, Fieldy's ... I'm going to be bitter flakes for the rest of the day.
|09/13/2017 - 1:13pm||I cannot, and will not, speak for native Hawaiians||
FWIW, the US Government appears to designate Native Hawaiians as a race: https://www.census.gov/quickfacts/HI
It is apparent many disagree with my opinion, but I really think this (mgoblog) thread fails. I get the humor. I love dark humor myself. I hate over-the-top PC police. This just isn't that funny to me. I hate lazy humor as much as I hate over-the-top PC police.
My first reaction is that the Bama blog original post seems like a blatant troll job. The OP hasn't made a single other post in the thread, even though several Bama posters are mocking the OP. Assuming I am wrong, and some racist, ignoramus spewed this nonsense for real, I see no need to give it air time here.
I find it pathetic whenever 11W, RCMB, etc. magnifies an ignorant pro-Michigan comment. This is the same nonsense.
|09/13/2017 - 11:43am||Fart noise, wanking motion||
Some troll posts race-baiting nonsense on Bama board. Michigan fan posts here to further race-bait. This reflects much more poorly on the person giving it attention than Bama fan.
|09/10/2017 - 5:13pm||Oxymoron to follow||
Proud Eagles fan here.
Brandon Graham had a dominant game. Two sacks, two tackles for loss, two quarterback hits, one forced fumble, just excellent. Kork will leave nightmares. Looked liked an All-Pro.
|09/09/2017 - 3:42pm||My opinion is special||
(No it isn't)
|09/06/2017 - 5:29pm||I was support staff.||
It's not my place to comment on the reunion. That said, I did not mean to imply anything "juicy" happened. It did not. The reunion was great. Everyone, from Coach Carr all the way down to support staff members that did the most thankless jobs, was recognized. Everyone on this site should be proud that the '97 team continues to represent the university in such a distinguished manner.
|09/06/2017 - 1:49pm||Dreisbach started the year as #2||
My memory is that Brady eventually overtook Dreisbach later in the season. Brady was really ill (I think with mono) in early-October, which slowed his inevitable ascent.
Side note -- this is going to be a GREAT series. Proudly, I was a non-athlete member of the '97 team, so I'm very curious to see what new information is revealed, and what stories have "evolved" over time, etc. The '97 team reunion in April was special .... and I'll leave it at that. The bonds among that team (coaches, players, support staff) has only grown stronger as the years have progressed.
