This week on Sports With Friends:

Longtime sports reporter/broadcaster Sam Adams recently announced that he was retiring from covering sports after three decades to pursue stand-up comedy full-time. Adams is best known for being a reporter for the Rocky Mountain News until the paper’s demise in 2009. Since then, he has done various radio and TV shows, while honing his craft as a stand-up.

In this episode, Adams talks about his extensive experience in the Denver sports media scene, highlighting the 1996 Colorado Avalanche Stanley Cup Championship and the 1998 Super Bowl Championship for the Denver Broncos. One career highlight that Adams considers is the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, Australia.

He also tells the origin story of his stand-up comedy career. During the podcast, he pays homage to legendary Denver radio host the late Thierry Smith, who has a unique connection to this podcast.
