Weather: 65 degrees, partly cloudy.
Wind: 12 mph, In from CF.
T: 3:22.
Att: 40,264

I didn’t know what to expect weather wise after yesterday evenings cold game. This game was actually a little bit warmer.

Congrats to Dinger who turned 17 today. I’m thoroughly amazed his purple bedazzled a-ss still has a job.

I love the Rockies but there’s two things I’d really like to see happen one day. One is replacing Dinger with a tougher looking dinosaur. A wimpy mascot projects a wimpy image…feel me?

      Keep the same dude that’s in the suit now…I don’t want anyone to lose their job.

 The other thing I’d like to see Tulo pick a manly walk-up song for a change. Knowing I have to listen to Justin Bieber all season long is disturbing to say the least.

    This game straight up sucked. Cubs fans were in full force with their loud drunk selves.

This game was one of the few times I couldn’t wait to leave Coors Field especially after that painful seventh inning. The only Rockies homerun was from Chris Iannetta in the eighth inning. I waited for the Coors Field magic to kick in but the only thing kick’n was my migrane.

                                    Rockies lose at Coors Field to the Cubs…8-3

                                                      This series is split.

Anyone else notice the two times the Rockies have worn purple at home have been losses?

              I’m D The Rockpile Ranter and I REALLY hate losing to the Cubs at home.ranter hat.jpg

    Ugh, that game was serious suckage. I couldn’t even believe it. And the Cubs fans . . . ugh ugh. But on a brighter note, yesterday’s game totally made up for it. đŸ˜‰ All in all, a fun weekend series.

    Amen and amen.

    PRETTY IN PURPLE-A walkup song to me is a personal thing, It speaks volumes about you…When you let fans pick your song it loses its meaning and just seems silly. Glad you agree…D


    To quote Ozzie: “What’s a Bieber?” I do agree not letting the fans pick the walk-up song and that it is a personal thing. Still, it would be great for Tulo to get another song…one, perhaps, that would get the fans on their feet. I’ve never really been an Ozzie fan, but when “Crazy Train” would start while Larry Walker was coming to the plate…that certainly got the fans going…at least me. Oh well, at least we got the Tulo chant. D-L
