What’s going on here?…Let the man pour beer.

2-7-11                               *ATTENTION RANTICS*

I was just informed that there is a petition circulating to ensure that Rockies Super Vendor Captain Earthman is allowed to serve beer at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick.

Captain Earthman has been a fixture at spring training in Tucson and at Coors Field for years.

From what I’m told the Captain hasn’t received the phone call stating that he has a job in the new stadium come Feb 26th.

We Rockies fans cherish the few traditions we have. Captain Earthman happens to be one of them. You’ve got to love the way he calls all little kids “Future Beer Drinkers”.

                        Or Earthman’s standard line “Ain’t no sissy sipp’n”.

One of the great things about Captain Earthman is that if you have his business card all you have to do is give him a ring, tell him your seat location and what you want to drink and he magically appears with a frosty cold beverage and a few words of wisdom.

    People forget the important job these guys do every game. Not only do they pry good money from our pocket for frothy beverages, they save us valuable game action loss time while traversing the stairs, concession lines or even costing us spillage on the way back to our seats.
    They are in-seat game hosts that serve happiness…8 ounces at a time.
    Hopefully the team just lost his number, or they sent his message by Pony Express, or…he missed the call somehow.
    I truly hope the Rockies continue the Capt. Earthman tradition.
    Baseball is all about traditions, even in the stands.

    Hey Don, what did you do to piss off the guy that runs these blogs??? Not only did he change the standings without any mention of changing them, he left you at number 2, moved the guy that he had at number one waaayyyyyyyy down the list, and moved #3 OVER you up to number one lol. What’s sad, is this idiot works for Major League Baseball (at least I think he is considered to work for MLB). He screwed up, and didn’t have the guts to say anything about it. Not only did he completely change the rankings, but he didn’t mention one word about it on MLBlogs. I was going to start my own blog, but when you have morons like that running the show, I don’t think I will waste my time. Maybe you should move your blog to somewhere that the guy running the show doesn’t have an agenda against you. Either way, don’t stop writing your blog, even if it is on here, just don’t ever expect to hit #1.

    RAYSRENEGADE-Well said, Captain Earthman is as much a part of baseball as is batting practice. Please put your name on the petition so we can keep our Rockies traditions.
    LALOSES-I don’t know man, the Rays Renegade kicks butt and I have no issues with play’n second fiddle to him. The whole thing does seem a bit odd though. An explanation would be nice, otherwise how can you trust the blog rankings? No worries, I’m for real, this blog is for real, and one day I’ll get to tapdance on #1 for a while…Maybe?
