    Denver on Friday

    I have a pretty big road trip coming up this weekend (driving a friend's car from Ames to Las Vegas), and was planning on taking a layover in Denver around... I don't know... 6pmish.

    Looking for some insight into a few things:

    Anyone know a really cheap motel in the area that would also happen to have ESPN 2 so I could watch the game?

    What radio stations may cover ISU football in Denver?

    Anyone in the Denver area that'll be watching the game at a bar that'd welcome a fellow cyclone fan?

    Maloney's downtown on Market is where the game watches are held. Pretty fun place and serve ginormous beers, if you're in to that sort of thing. Usually a pretty good ISU showing.

    Is there any radio available in the area that would cover the cyclones?

    I know, and right now the plan is to get Denver in time to watch the game at Maloneys with the other cyclones, then hit a hotel near by.

    But if plans fall through, I want to not be stranded with no way to get updates.

    Re: Denver on Friday

    1600 just carries the ESPN radio programming. I don't think they broadcast live sporting events.

    104.3 doesn't list the game in their list of upcoming games.

    102.3 I can't find a schedule

    No radio station in Colorado would carry the Clones unless they were playing a Colorado team.

    go buy a 6-pack and enjoy the game. You'll get drunk sooner at this altitude.
