I’m a lucky guy and I know it.  

So in the spirit of Thanksgiving, here’s a small list of things I’m thankful for:





I’m thankful that I live in a Country that I’m free (for the most part). I’m thankful for the servicemen and Veterans who served, or are serving this country.

I’m thankful that I have a beautiful wife who loves me, and lets me be me. Sometimes that’s a lot, at times I can be bigger than life and she deals.

 We have balance together.

I’m thankful that I have three healthy children (two at home and one grown), who are the light of my life, and are growing up right before my eyes.

 I’m thankful that I have a three-year-old grandson Mason, who I will hopefully get to see this Christmas (Thank you Paul and Brie).

 I’m thankful for that more than you know.

Me and Pugs.jpg
Our house 11.jpgI’m thankful my wife and I have jobs, a nice house, a couch, two Chinese Pugs and a Puggle, two cars that run, Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for me in the bus10-22-08.JPGneighbors that don’t bother me, my bass guitar, a
working computer, comfortable shoes, 1977 VW bus, a very cool circle of friends that I have been tight with for twenty years.

I’m thankful my mom and pops are active, healthy and enjoying retirement.

I’m thankful for my mother and father-in-law, who happen to be the coolest people on the planet. Thank you (for everything you do), and for always being there to help, and for treating me with respect since day one. You’re the best in-laws a son-in-law could ask for.

I’m thankful for all the new friends that I made at Coors Field this past baseball season.

I’m thankful that other than the ” First Row Regulars” in the Pavilion at Coors Field…Dan, Robert, Danny..etc I snagged the most baseballs in the bleachers behind them.

That’s actually not a proven fact, but if you think (and can prove), you snagged more baseballs than me this season, at Coors Field, I’ll retract my statement and
give you some props.

I’m thankful I have MLBlogs.com in my life. That way when I want to be serious I can, or when I want to rip the world a new one, I can do that, or when I just want to write about a really good batting practice followed by a come from behind Rockies win, I can do that too.

I’m thankful my opportunities as an MLBlogger are endless.

I’m also thankful for the “mad love” that MLBlogs.com has given the Rockpile Rant this year.

Mark and whomever else is behind the scenes,

thanks, I notice…D

I’m thankful for the readers I’ve had all season, and the new one’s that have recently come aboard.

Without you to interpret, they’re just words.

I tell you what, I must be softening a little bit, because the more I think about how thankful I am for the things in my life, it’s choking me up a bit.

As I said above, I’m a VERY lucky guy.

<–Not my family, too skinny.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you.

Hug your family, eat some bird and pie, play a few board games, and have way too much fun.

Do something nice for someone who maybe isn’t in the best of circumstances right now.

It will come back to you, I promise.

Me, I’ll be eating my bird early as I’ll be making an appearance at the Nuggets Game against the Hornets…If your going to be there, let me know. I’ll come over and say hey, take your picture and make you famous.

                                           I’m cool like that, be safe out there…D
