"It kind of makes me laugh that people from Denver think they're from Colorado," said Ken Hoeve, a professional kayaker from Gypsum. "Colorado is really the mountains. As soon as you cross over the Continental Divide, that's when you're really in Colorado. Denver is just another city. It might as well be Cincinnati, as far as I'm concerned."

The last time I looked my Drivers license said Colorado. Am I dreaming? This is all a dream!!!!! See you at the pahrty, Richtor. Well like I say never trust anyone named Ken . . but now I guess anytime he steps over the divide it would be in our best interest to treat him like a true Coloradan - Vail right? Jeez gimme a friggin break. If Vail is the real Colorado we should all run. . . fast. Comments like this make me shake my head.

It's amazying how mountain men are so extreme. You guys rock. I heard how hard it is to find a condo in Eagle. Man, I just couldn't live as core as you guys do. I mean, you got a real long drive to Walmart in Silverthorne too. I just don't know how you can do it year after year. Mountain men are so rugged!

I have a similar reaction....they make my middle finger twitch and then extend.

Guess i'll start telling people i live in greater kansas now. :roll:

People always gotta feel like they are better than the rest somehow...the comment probably comes from him compensating for a small penis.

sheesh...entertain me why don't ya

Got some news for this dickhead. I remember when Vail wasn't. Vail is a made up city. an afterthought and outgrowth of the ski area, just as Beaver Creek and Avon are.

Last I checked, Denver was part of Colorado, at least I don't recall that it had been reannexed by Texas or Kansas, which by the way, most of Colorado was once part of, at least after it had been claimed, bought, stolen from France and Spain and Mexico, and let us not forget the Native Americans too.

Last I checked, wasn't Ken that 'light-in-the-loafers' looking, sometime companion of Barbie? The chick with the fake J-Lo butt, big boobs, no paddling skills and prozac smile.


argh!

You guys got that. I think what he’s saying is frontrangers shouldn’t buy dagger. We're just a small part of the "Colrado" market anyway.

Why ya'll gotta be a bunch of reactionary bitches? Read the article.

"It kind of makes me laugh that people from Denver think they're from Colorado," said Ken Hoeve, a professional kayaker from Gypsum. "Colorado is really the mountains. As soon as you cross over the Continental Divide, that's when you're really in Colorado. Denver is just another city. It might as well be Cincinnati, as far as I'm concerned."

Hoeve's stance in the East vs. West argument is partially in jest. As a competitor in the East vs. West kayak rodeo at the Teva Mountain Games in Vail this month, it's practically his job to spray slurs against opponents from the East. Just know the other side can sling it right back.

"Just look at the Vail whitewater park versus what we have in Golden and along the Front Range," said Gary Mullins, co-founder of the Golden Community Kayak Rodeo Series. "I don't think so."

lighten up

gotta look at the whole quote folks,

"It kind of makes me laugh that people from Denver think they're from Colorado," said Ken Hoeve, a professional kayaker from Gypsum. "Colorado is really the mountains. As soon as you cross over the Continental Divide, that's when you're really in Colorado. Denver is just another city. It might as well be Cincinnati, as far as I'm concerned."

Hobie is good people, adios, atom...

I live in Vail, but I'm following my girlfriend to D-town. Will anyone be friends with me?

Oh yea - I need a job too - but it can't suck: it has to pay ALOT and allow me to leave work every day at 3 PM so I can kayak. Any ringers?

christ, front rangers whining about hobie's comments need to relax a little. We all know that most "mountain boys" up round vail really just live paycheck to paycheck waiting tables or working for "the man" cleaning snow off chair lift seats as it comes by for 6 bucks an hour.

instead of dagger boycott threats about some smack talk thats obviously in jest, come back with a little smack please. for the love of all thats good and holy....

Geez.....lighten up Francis. If you don't know the guy don't talk smack (mvhyde) He's a standup guy who does a load of work for the paddling community. Like to see some of you "chat" to his face.....hope you're 6'5" and 240 lbs.
He'd eat pancakes off your head....behind the woodshed!
