It’s the End of the World as We Know it…and I Feel Fine

Day 117


What a weekend… No swine flu here though.

The winds of change were blowing in Denver.


DSC06036.JPGFriday night saw the Rockies lose a battle against the Dodgers 6-5. It was a close game for the most part and I take the loss. My curse on the Dodgers really hasn’t materialized the way I hoped. I may need to take the grass from Dodger stadium to a good voodoo specialist.

Friday night also saw the debut of the Rocky Mountain Way-I Live for This tag team debut. Emily and I would try and combine our forces to rally the Rockies, but we came up short. I wanted to blame it on the Korean, but Emily and I would agree that I would take the loss.

DSCN0105.JPGWith Emily and her two girlfriends in attendance, it was no surprise to me the talk of baseball butts would come into play. Trying to be the team player, I took care of the “photos” for the ladies. Needless to say, guys can skip to the next section of the blog, but the ladies I’m sure will keep with the longer glance.

Emily was nice enough to provide me with my first free ticket of the year. Other than the score of the game, it was a great time. “I Live for This” is a pretty accurate description for Emily, her blog and her love of baseball. She’s more than willing to give you any baseball answer and if she doesn’t know it, she may let you know she likes to make stuff up! Emily and I ran into Don of Rockpile Rant and he was in the intense “zone” trying to hawk some balls during batting practice. He caught one of the last balls of the practice and gave it to Emily.

Our ace, Aaron Cook, did not live up to my prediction of going 7 2/3 scoreless innings, but he didn’t have the worse outing of the year, so maybe things are changing for the better. After getting touched up in the first, he settled in and had some good innings. I hope he’s past the bad outings.  

The Rockies would fall again Saturday to the Dodgers 6-5. Ubaldo Jimenez, who is a huge hope of mine, was sketchy at best and never really found command of his fastball.

Sunday, started out Sunny..


DSCN0109.JPGand would end raining. The Rockies rained down runs on the Dodgers and scored 10 runs. It was nice to see and I wasn’t really complaining at all! I had a different outfit on and I will continue to wear it trying to figure out if it may be the lucky one this season.

Sunday also had a very bright spot during the rainy, cloudy day and I will talk all about it in tomorrow’s blog.

    Baseball butts. Yes. Thank you. I needed another highlight in my day since my game was postponed due to stupid rain. šŸ™‚ Glad you got to meet up with Emily and Don. That sounds like a whole bunch of fun. When you make it to San Diego, remember you have another free ticket waiting for you.

    Another free ticket! Awesome : ) Glad you liked the baseball butts. We noticed the Sox getting rocked Friday night as we looked over at the board. Hope you’re over that one!

    Sounds like you guys had a good time šŸ™‚ Oh man. What is it with the Padres and the Rockies?? I’m exploring it in my latest blog entry, but seriously. It’s crazy man…oh I bet I know what it is. You were wearing the new outfit weren’t you?
