Rockies fans know the name, It’s imbedded in their short history.
Eric Young’s son “Jr” is one of six dudes up for the fifth annual Dernell Stenson Sportsmanship Award.
EY Jr, has been spending his time learning center field, which is a change up for him as he almost always plays second base.
Eric has a .424 average, three homers (two of which are grand slams), and has been caught only once out of nineteen attempted steals.
This award is in the memory of the late Cincinnati Reds outfield prospect Dernell Stenson, who was murdered during a carjacking.
This award has been given out annually since 2004, and is given to the player who best exemplifies unselfishness, hard work and leadership.
EY Jr is a shoe-in, even thought he missed a week due to a sore hamstring.
Just for the hell of it try this out:
WARNING If you do this remember what you will see on the wall is just an illusion.
1. Relax and then really concentrate on the four little dots in the center of this picture. Serious, stare at them for a good 40 seconds.
2. Then, turn your head and stare at any smooth wall. You will start to see a circle of light developing.
3. Blink your eyes a few times and you will see a figure start to emerge.
Did it work for you??
If it did, let me know what you saw. It freaked me out.
Ok, one more and then I’m done.
If you can’t read this one then I can’t help you.
If you’re into big bugs and your cruising through Colorado Springs, stop in and see the World’s Largest Hercules Beetle.
This big bug was built in 1958 and is constructed of fiberglass and steel.
It’s 9 feet high, 17 feet long, and 6 feet wide.
This monster weighs 400 pounds.
I’m all for that, just don’t do it this February. That would be all jacked up.
You’ve heard of Pistol Pete, here’s pistol pipe?
I can think of a million things to say, but I’m going to let this picture speak for itself.
Thanks for checking out the Rant.
The Nuggets play the Bucks in Denver tonight at 7:30.
