Ten to Zero…Looking For a Hero

8/3/10              Giants vs Rockies Game One

IMG_5115.JPGGiant Todd and I had been looking forward to this game for a long time. It’s not often he and I get to attend a game together and we were ready to have a good time and enjoy some live baseball. 

 Jersey Geoff got back with me and sent those pictures of his autographed Ubaldo Jiminez All-Star Jersey. This jersey is beyond sweet. 

       Geoff uses washable marker on his jerseys so he can sport ’em at home games.

         Bases loaded, this was Helton’s chance for a huge comeback grand slam.bases loaded 8-3-10.jpgStrike three. It seemed the whole game was full of blown opportunities and the Coors Field magic I was feeling turned out to be just gas. Helton Strike three 8-3-10.jpg

I’m not sure what this lady was smiling about but I assure you I wasn’t smiling as I exited Coors Field.smiling 8-3-10.jpg

          On a cool note Douglas D snagg’d a third out toss up from Carlos Gonzalez.

Douglas D 8-3-10.jpgAround the 8th inning a lady named Kim(I think) from Canada walked by, tapped me on the shoulder and asked if she could take a picture of my jersey.

I believe her reason for wanting a picture of my jersey was something to do with a Rockpile group in Canada that she’s a member of…If I’m wrong Kim leave me a comment.

 I mentioned that I too grew up in Canada so Kim decided to join Giant Todd and I for a chat.

                                                        Very nice lady.


Towards the end I just wanted the Rockies to score one run to avoid the shutout. But they didn’t.

                Giant Todd and his boys owned Coors Field from start to finish.

    Yeah. This was the game that I couldn’t believe we paid good parking money to attend. I just sat there shaking my head. No words.

    I called the grand slam when there was only one guy on base!!! Too bad we both felt it, and it didn’t happen. I had no idea you were there, so sad to miss you at a game. Thanks as always for my Bradley pic! He’s not doing so hot lately. My baseball friends want him sent down next. 😦 Thanks for all you do! -Geri

    LUVMYROX-Lol…”we paid good parking money to attend”
    It was quiet, uneventful and boring. What happened to Aaron Cook?…Damn I hate shutouts.
    MIMI-Agreed, Jersey Geoff got it goin-on.
    QUEEN Geri-Great minds think alike don’t you agree? 🙂 . Ouch, the Hawper in AAA, I like the opportunity for an autograph down in the Springs, but I believe he’ll get it together before he drops a level. I hope….D

    Rockpile, sorry to hear about Tulsa Drillers catcher, Wilin Rosario injury. Not the way that he wanted to end the season. I got his autograph on his Texas League Top Prospect card along with getting his home run ball. Unfortunately I was unable to get him to autograph the ball since he left to play in the Futures Game.
