Tagged: First Annual Rockies Fest

Even if it’s snowing I’m still going


A few weeks back I received an email from a friend/Rockies regular that I’ve blogged about this season. The email had an attachment.

                                             Here’s what was attached:

its not better.jpgI couldn’t believe it. How cool is this? The Monforts are finally giving back to the Rockies fans after the terrible World Series debacle. 

Well not quite, it’s free but it’s limited to 5000 people and you have to be a season ticket holder to be able to reserve a ticket.

 I would have mentioned this event earlier but I wasn’t 100% sure I had a ticket for Hunter and I.

Thanks to the above stated “Rockies regular”, (I’ll give out his name if I get permission), I’ll have two tickets for Hunter and I to attend this first annual Rockies/fan extravaganza.

madhouse_4.jpgI read that the Rockies are only allowing 5000 people because this is the first one of these Rockies/fan events and they want to be able to control the flow of people.  

No worries there, the fewer people in attendance the better.  Shorter lines and elbow room are always a plus. 

I went to the Bronco’s Fan Fair this year and it was a two day freggin madhouse. This event should be a little more manageable and enjoyable for all concerned.

The best part of of all of this is if Todd Helton is there, I’ll finally get to meet my favorite ballplayer face to face and get his autograph and hopefully a picture.  



I feel like Earl, the way I’m crossing things off of my “Things to do before I croak” list.

 I’ll finally be able to get autographs from the Rockies players whose signatures are a little more difficult to acquire.

Names  such as Brad Hawpe, Garrett Atkins, Yorvit Torealba and the above mentioned Todd Helton).

 Now all this gets me to thinking, what am I going to get autographed at this event?

 I know exactly what I want Todd Helton to autograph,… a 2007 World Series baseball. I think I’ll bring a couple of those, there’s still a few guys left on the team from Rocktober 2007.

(Note: there is some fine print that states that select autograph sessions and other events will be ticketed seperately, I’m not sure what that means yet).

What’s also cool is this is my opportunity to  talk to the players and mention the Rockpile Rant.

I plan to inform them we’ll be bloggin from the Mobile Blogging Unit in Tucson at the start of spring training.

I just want them to remember my face so we get some love down in Tucson.. 🙂

So I wonder, do we get a tour?

 I’d love to get to go behind the mechanical scoreboard, snap a picture of the locker rooms, or maybe even tour the humidor. 

You know, the full fan treatment. 

 Fan Fest is all about us right?..snowy coors field.jpg



This is going to be fun, as long as we get some sun…D
