In an effort to promote its kickoff to the regular season next week between the defending Super Bowl champion Ravens and the Denver Broncos, the NFL has put up banners of quarterback Joe Flacco posted throughout downtown Denver. The promotional efforts have been met with predictable reactions from Denver residents and Broncos fans and even some players. In an interview with Denver radio station 850 KOA , Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning said "it doesn't seem like it makes sense that the Denver Broncos have to have an opposing player on their stadium.

Banners in downtown Denver featuring Joe Flacco have drawn the ire of Broncos fans who weren't pleased about the towering image of the Ravens quarterback on the side of their stadium, Sports Authority Field at Mile High. Ravens fans will soon witness a similar sight in downtown Baltimore, but I'm guessing they will handle it a little better. Cheering for the Super Bowl champions makes you much mellower about that sort of thing. The NFL is starting to decorate downtown in advance of Thursday night's kickoff concert at the Inner Harbor.

Quarterback Joe Flacco had no idea that a large banner with his image was hanging from Sports Authority Field at Mile High, the home of the Denver Broncos, until wide receiver Torrey Smith and a couple of his other teammates sent him a picture of the stadium via text message. “I can't believe it,” Flacco said Sunday. “I can't imagine people in our city would be too happy if somebody from another team was hanging from our stadium. I didn't have anything to do with it.” Four days before the Broncos host the Ravens to kick of the 2013 NFL season, the hottest topic in both Baltimore and Denver was the controversial Flacco banners -- which were part of the NFL's marketing plan for the game -- that last week popped up at Sports Authority Field at Mile High and on lampposts in downtown Denver.

Denver. -- It's tough to recall any American airport that's encountered political turbulence and predictions of fiscal crash landings akin to those swirling around the oft-delayed Denver International Airport, now scheduled to debut in May.The airport, say critics, is unnecessary (the existing Stapleton Airport can handle today's traffic loads), monstrously expensive ($3.1 billion), fiscally perilous (its bonds hover two notches over junk-grade), and too expensive to get to ($35 for the 24-mile cab ride from downtown Denver)

An Italian sub shop will make its Maryland debut this spring in Westminster at the old firehouse on Main Street.Quizno's, a Denver-based franchise with about 500 locations -- mainly west of the Mississippi -- is set to open in May at the historic 66 E. Main St. site. The shop will be surrounded by similar restaurants: Joe's Deli, Giulianova Groceria and Paradiso Italian Restaurant.Franchise owner Mike Spurlock of Ellicott City said he chose to locate in downtown Westminster because the area doesn't have a lot of fast-food chain restaurants -- although Sam's Bagels is down the street -- and because he sees vitality in the area.

Whatever else can be said of the behind-schedule, over-budget, far-flung new Denver International Airport, it will surely make life easier for some travelers. But for skiers headed west to the ski slopes, the $3.2 billion airport will not be so convenient.DIA, the first major airport to be built from scratch in the United States since Dallas-Fort Worth 20 years ago, is set to open May 15, eight months late and more than $1 billion over initial cost estimates.The new facility is situated 23 miles northeast of downtown Denver, about 20 miles farther northeast of the city than Stapleton Airport.

I recently stayed in a downtown Denver hotel in which the vending machine in the hallway outside my room refused silver or paper money. It only accepted plastic. Signs were clear about this. There weren't slots to attempt to stuff in real money, in case you were trying to pull a fast one. Well, I was hungry late one evening and have always been one for progress. The first time I swiped my credit card, I received authorization and a receipt, but the snack selected didn't drop. A candy bar bill revolving on anyone's credit card is bad enough, but an electronic charge for a candy bar never received goes against the Bill of Rights.

As the Baltimore Ravens and Denver Broncos get ready for their big playoff game Saturday, there are plenty of opinions about how the teams and cities compare . But in one competition -- based on books -- Baltimore wins hands down. The East Coast city had the advantage of time and history, of course, and in literary matters, that can be a big edge. Denver didn't get its start until the mid-1800s, when word of a gold strike brought settlers to the banks of the South Platte River.

DENVER -- Maryland's distinctive state flag stood out in the offertory procession of the opening Mass here Wednesday night for the rally of young Roman Catholics from around the world.There were two reasons.One was Baltimore's Archbishop William H. Keeler, who as elected head of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops is chairman of Denver's weeklong international gathering called -- officially -- World Youth Day '93.This upbeat religious rally of 170,000 teen-agers and young adults, concluding with another open-air Mass on Sunday morning, is what brought both Pope John Paul II and President Clinton to Denver yesterday.
