Well that sucks. I went up to the cabin this weekend to do some maintenance.
When I left out Saturday morning the Rockies were up one game on the Padres.
I didn’t have access to any of the scores so I was out of the loop for a day and a half.
I felt good though, because the Padres(53-83) are trailing the Rockies(64-74) and I didn’t figure it would be an issue winning this set or even getting a sweep.
On the drive back home today I turned on the radio and caught the game three in the bottom of the ninth, tied.
Not only did we lose this one, I found out we lost the night before too..HUH ?
No way, not to the Padres, not now. Remember the wins in SF?
I must admit, after hearing that news I went a little squirrely.

The place is no Keystone or Vail, but it’s close to Denver.
It has a little something for everyone, and it’s more reasonably priced than the big resorts.
Ever paid for a family of four to snowboard? If you have you feel me.

24 games left in the Rockies regular season.
15 home games.
9 away games.
If you look in Elway’s left eye you can see a glimmer of hope.
We need sweeps in the series against the Dodgers and the two series against the D-Backs.
<—Actual animal feces.(deer I think).
None of the stupid crap that happened earlier this season matters now.
Not the injuries, not the missed opportunities, not the road losses.
Winning is the only priority that matters from this moment forward.
I need to see the Rockies out there taking every second of these next home games seriously. All of it.
Please don’t mistake my excitement for anger, as baseball is my release.
Every single game matters from here on. Every game of the Rockies, every one of the Dodgers, every one of the D-Backs.
In the evenings now, I constantly have MLB.com up and I’m checking scores.
I really believe the Rockies are still in this (I’ve seen stranger things happen, we all have).
<—(Not me or my pot).
Count on me blowing smoke in your face until I know it’s an impossibility for the Rockies to continue.
Lets see how much smoke is left after this homestretch with SF and Houston..
See you at the game tomorrow.
