A Philadelphia sports radio guy has started a petition to ban pro sports in Denver because he thinks we’re cheating or something.

He claims the Nuggets, Avalanche, Rockies, Broncos and Rapids have an advantage over visiting teams because they play on a taller hill than the rest of the country and are therefore more adapted to playing on the taller hill.

To illustrate his point, the Philadelphia man used a picture from Colorado Springs, which is not Denver. It is 68 miles away and 755 feet higher.

So here’s a petition to raise Denver’s stadiums 1,000 feet higher to ensure we get more wins and titles.
