The Denver Post’s Woody Paige, citing two unnamed sources, says Peyton Manning will announce his retirement this coming week.
There it is, you guys. Denver Post columnist and ESPN clown-bro Woody Paige did a real bang-up job of shoe-leather reporting last night. He was first with the news that Butch Jones was leaving the University of Cincinnat—wait, what?
Poor Tim Tebow. No matter how much time he spends on his knees, he's probably not going to be the starting quarterback in Denver. Kyle Orton has been practicing exclusively with the Broncos first-team offense. Tebow hasn't gotten a single snap. According to Woody Paige at the Denver Post, the young Christian is having…
This is a clip from an Around The Horn episode about a week ago, in which the four journalists du jour took on the March Madness selection process — a topic that seemed to be on everybody's mind. "How much difference between the innies and the outies?" wondered show host Tony Reali. "What do you think of the job the…
Go read Woody Paige's column about the late Kenny McKinley, in which he writes movingly of his own thoughts of suicide eight years ago: "The next morning I would head over to the coast and swim out in the Pacific Ocean far enough that I couldn't make it back to the beach."
An anonymous reader sent in this photo of Woody Paige goin' around the tongue with a fine lass at the Big Game bar in Denver. Here's the background.
Woody Paige, Around The Horn's resident jester, likes to have a little fun on the show with his trusty chalkboard. Today's message: "Advertise Here: 1-800-555-HORN." What do you get when you call? A message from Paige? A phone-sex line? Could be anything.
Remember waaaay back in 2007 when make-up lady "to the stars" Rita Ragone sued ESPN and AVI for sexual harassment and named Woody Paige and Jay Crawford as egregious fanny-pinchers? Well, unfortunately, the claims against those two have been tossed.

Mike Shanahan will be the highest paid coach in the NFL this season, provided he doesn't actually coach anybody. Or talk to anybody. Yes, getting fired from a high-paying job is great work if you can get it.
Here's a game for you the next time you pick up the sports section of a newspaper. (If people still do that these days. Zing! High five!) Find their local columnist and count how many consecutive one-sentence paragraphs that lead off their article. Today, it's Woody Paige, and the count comes in at six.
We've certainly made fun of Woody Paige for a while around these parts, but we've still given him a level of esteem and prestige above that of a random late-night talk-radio caller. But considering the amount of basic understanding (or lack thereof) of how the operation of a baseball team works he showed in …
We used to have a lot more fun with Woody Paige than we do now because, back when we first started this site, we felt compelled to write about "Cold Pizza" every day, because it was so ridiculous and because we were home all day and the only people watching. (We are certain we were the only people on earth to catch…
"No Artest, no Miller, no place to go and no way to get there for Sacramento. Hakuna matata. It means "no worries" for the Nuggets. Worry. Kings beat Jokers Saturday night." I recognize most of those words as English, but strung together as such, what the hell was just said? [Denver Post]
The next class of the Baseball Hall of Fame will be announced next Tuesday, and it should be a tight squeeze for a few folks. How seriously are the Hall of Fame voters taking this historic election?
Keith Law and Rob Neyer, two guys who know more baseball than we've forgotten — wait ... is that how that phrase goes? — but they can't vote for the Hall of Fame. Woody Paige can. Vegas Watch looks at Paige's detailed, thorough thought process.
It's the six-year anniversary of September 11 today, and we're not gonna make a huge thing about it, because everyone should grieve / remember in their own personal way. To commemorate the occasion, though, we thought it might be fun to step in the way back machine and see how three of our great political minds…
Be advised, Woody Paige; if you think that you're going to steamroll Rita Ragone in this sexual harrassment lawsuit due to your celebrity status, think again. Ms. Ragone, Stylist to the Stars, has some powerful friends. According to her web site, not only is Stephen A. Smith in her corner, but she also counts The…
