All he said was don’t aim for my head

Rock Pile Rant was ranked # 26 for the month of October so far. Best part was I came in ahead of a couple of Red Sox Blogs, and their team is in the Playoffs…Thanks for supporting  the Rant..Wait till next season…Bring it on…D !

It is no secret I’m not a Red Sox lover. They destroyed the Rockies last year during the World Series. I don’t hate them like I want to kick their butt hate, I just dislike them cause they made the Rockies look like chumps. So yes, it’s sort of a jealous hate I’ll admit it.

So for me and other Rockies fans,  it would be sweet justice to see them fall flat on their collective faces.

It befuddles me how many Boston fans live in my state of Colorado. I can’t go a single day without hearing something about the flippin Red Sox. I hate that.

Big Papi, Lester, Beckett, Youkilis, all names I’ve grown to detest. I respect their ability, I just don’t care for them.

Get this, those Boston fans were actually booing their team today. The same team that won the World Series last year. Go figure.

 Some Boston fans are jacked up. Not all of them.

So thank you Tampa Bay, it was nice to hear Fenway quiet except for the Bostonians booing  for their own team.

 I don’t get the booing?

 I believe were beginning to see Boston unravel. But what do I know, I’m just a Rockies fan.

 My  pick to win the World Series after I realized that the Rockies were done for the season was the Phillies.

There was no strategy behind my pick. I have a couple of friends that are Phillies fans and I figured it would be cool to root for the same team as them for a change.

  Any other time I would be talking endless smack to each of them about the Phillies. Guess I’ve come full circle.Hiroki1.JPG

 I was born in California, and I have absolutley no loyalty to that Republic whatsoever.

I can’t even think of one California team in any sport that I like. Ok, maybe the Lakers when Magic Johnson used to play. I love his name.

Hiroki Kuroda was stellar. He won this game in a little over six innings. He also showed his team that he has some steel knads. They ought to call this guy the Japanese headhunter. 

It took some guts to toss a pitch at Shane Victorino’s head, because you know whats going to happen next.

Benches cleared, oh hell yea. WE ALL knew it was coming. Baseball is funny like that. Revenge is alive and well in the MLB, with Manny Ramirez leading the way.Shane V 1.JPG I like Manny, but it wouldn’t have broke my heart if he  had thrown a few punches and got himself suspended a couple of games.

Did you catch the interview with Shane right after the game?

 He was trying to be all calm about it, but clearly his adreneline was still pumping. He kept repeating, I’m ok if he pitches to me on the inside,  but don’t aim for the head.

I think he repeated that about fifteen  times in a two minute interview. The brawl was kept under control and not one player was ejected.

Game 4 is starting shortly and Derek Lowe is on the mound for the Dodgers. Pitching for the Phillies is Joe Blanton. This is going to be a good game. I bet I’m more hyped than October Gonzo and don’t have near the hook ups that dude does. Eat your heart out G.

                                       I’m outta here…I need to see this game…D
