It was a huge success and my kids are loaded up with toys and clothes to last another year (I hope).
I have to say, RockBand is really freggin cool. My wife has this thing where she can’t watch video games for long because of the rapid eye movement jacks her up.
Not only can she watch Rockband, the kicker is……she really digs playing it.
I only wish you could pick the songs that “you” want to hear. Anyways, just thought I’d give the game a plug. Great family entertainment, plus it gets your kids listening to a lot of the music you listened to growing up, you know, the good stuff.
You need to play this game, I’m never wrong about this stuff.
My mother and father-in-law gifted me a really cool book about ballparks for X-mas.
The pictures in this book are incredible. There’s some history about the parks too.
Heavy to hold, but fun to read.
Below are a few pictures from Colorado’s own Coors field.
I work right beside a sporting goods store and I decided to walk over and see if they had any Rockies gear on sale, you know the deeply discounted crap they’re desperate to get rid of.
They had a whole bunch of Matt Holliday Jerseys priced at half off.
Huh, only half off? I don’t understand, unless your planning on flying to California and getting Matt to autograph the Jersey, then fly back and hang it on your wall, in my opinion the jersey is almost worthless.
Good luck with trying to do that, it’s not easy to get Matt Holliday to sign anything. While he was a Rockie and before home games started, it seemed like he would hide underneath the Stadium until the last minute then come onto the field.
The dude rarely took batting practice, sorry Matt, but it’s true. I’m not hating, I’m just stating.
Half off, give me a freggin break.
I did manage to find a good deal, I found a Rockies hoodie for a great price.
Actually the price was so good I bought two.
Just wait a year Tampa Bay Ray fans, you’ll be able to find all kinds of good deals on baseball stuff.
It’s Todd Helton’s pink baseball bat
. Click on the link to go straight to the auction. Last I looked it was at $50.00 plus shipping. The auction ends this Saturday around noon.
This bat deserves to be owned by a Rockies fan.
Ok, so someone who doesn’t have any kids step up to the plate here and give this thing a good home.
Your probably the only ones with any cash left after X-mas.
This bat was signed and used by Colorado Rockies #17 Todd Helton on Mother’s Day 2008 in observance of Breast Cancer Awareness.
There were seven Rockies players who used the pink bats on Mother’s day.
Todd is my favorite player and I would love to be the owner of this bat. Like I said, I’m telling you about it because I feel a loyal Rockies fan should give her a good home.
Here’s a link to the story on MLB.com….. Pink bat story by Mark Newman. I wonder if Todd kept the other bat?
Hmmm, who knows I could always give him a ring and ask him?
