My last sentence in my last entry said “Rockies make me wish I was watching this game on TV” as I have been taking in the road games via Gameday Audio on my computer. Last nights game against the D-Backs was one I would have liked to have watched.
Brad Hawpe has been one of those Rockies who I know is good but never payed a lot of attention to. Brad is a trooper and I like his style.
As long as my kids haven’t lost their wristbands they’ll get to run around the bases after the game on Sunday as part of the Rockies Rookies Kids Fan Club.
I just watched an interview with Steve Martin talking about the making of “The Jerk”.
It’s hard to believe it’s been 30 years since that movie was released. If you have never seen it, it’s a must see classic.
Everybody has their favorite line in “The Jerk”
De La Rosa will be on the mound this afternoon hungry for his first win. This would be a great time to see him shine. A win today would give us the D-Back series and send the Rockies back home with a postive vibe and a few wins under their belt.
The Rockies are going to need it because say what you want,….the Dodgers are no joke this season. Manny Ramirez is a huge part of the enthusiasm of his team but in reality the Dodgers have many weapons besides his power.
I want to see the Rockies destroy the Dodgers here at Coors. I want to see Helton hit his first homer at home. I’d like to be the lucky SOB who catches that homer but seeing it would be sufficient.
I wait at the gates for them to swing open,
Excited for the game and a win I’m hopin.
Players on the field the batting cages are out,
There’s a shot to left field it’s mine no doubt.
It’s a piece of the game it’s all part of the fun,
and if you’re on your game you might get more than one.
To be continued…D
