7/27/08 9:30 AM, three cups of coffee.
You wouldn’t believe the amazing view I have as I’m sitting here working on my blog.
I’m on top of a mountain overlooking Nederland. Colorado.
I’m secretely borrowing some free wireless internet so I can take care of some business and post this blog entry.
I’ve got a fold up carry chair, my computer in my lap, the sky is a clear jet blue and the wind is blowing tiny little ripples across the water.
There is a chipmunk on top of a log about five feet away and a hawk big enough to carry away one of my pugs is flying overhead checking out the scene.
Here’s what we did this weekend while the Rockies were out of town.
We (me, Berned, Hunter and Mylee) spent all day yesterday fishing at at Rainbow lake.
We didn’t catch a single fish except for Berned who managed to snag a Rainbow trout.
Got up early again this morning.
Still no luck.
Berned and Mylee fishing—————->
I would have taken a picture of Berned’s rainbow trout, but it was tiny and I didn’t want to embarrass him.
No worries, there really is no bad day fishing.
Just nice to get out and get some fresh air.
It was nice to get away from the heat of the city.
It was around 82 degrees up in the Mountains on Saturday and Sunday.
Mid 90’s in Denver.
Rockies beat the Reds last night 5-1
Rockies have won the last eight of nine since the All Star break.
Jorge De La Rosa has managed to save his job with some solid pitching when we need it the most.
Congrats on your first road win of this season. Good timing.. Jorge is now 5-5.
Rockies are now only six games behind the D-Backs.
Aaron Cook..Congrats on the birth of your son on Thursday.
Fogg, aka “The Dragon Slayer”, has a chance to put a halt to the Rockies sweep of the Reds.
COOL NOTE: Each Rockies starter in the last two games has had at least one hit.
Rockies have the most runs in the MLB for July so far with 135.
Rockies are tied for third in Home Runs with thirty five, and are tied for first place in stolen bases. Thank you Willy T.
I asked at the beginning of this road trip for the Rockies to bring some wins to back to Coors Field. So far this road trip they haven’t disappointed. Yep, I’m happy right now.
