Playoffs never grow old even when it’s cold


I can’t believe it. Tomorrow I’ll be at Coors Field watching my Colorado Rockies host the Phillies in Game 3 of the Division Series.

Div Series Home Game 1.jpgThey did it. After a confusing/frustrating 2008 season the Rockies are back. Back to hopefully prove to the world 2007 wasn’t just a fluke.

This Rockies team is a different playoff team than it was in 2007. This time the Rockies didn’t make the post-season on a last minute historic run. The Rockies played solid baseball for most of the last half of this season and thus deserve to be exactly where they are.

I’m loving the fact that this Phillies series is split. Coming back to Coors two games down would have been really tough to overcome. Now it’s even, the Rockies are at Coors Field for two and this series could end right here at home.

Onward and upward baby. 

Tomorrow’s game will probably be the only post-season game I’ll be able to attend as the tickets are very expensive. I’m just happy I have the chance to attend, take a sh*t-ton of pictures, and cheer on the best team in baseball.

Guess who’ll be with me….Andy from Spring training. Here he’s posing with his first ever homerun ball.

I’ve been plugging this team online in blog form for two years now. I believed then, I believe now.

Rockies…Have fun with this but never lose sight of the goal. We want a World Series Championship in Colorado.

The Colorado Rockies are “home grown” and are on their way to being well known. 

The combination of teamwork, friendship, skill, and a big hearted skipper who tells it exactly like it is has enabled the Rockies to flourish this season…

Tomorrow I want to see a stadium full of Rockies fans giving it their all.  I personally plan to lose my voice. Give me a shout if you see me on TV. I think I sit just behind Dan.
