3/17/10 HAPPY ST. PATRICKS DAY
FYI…As good as this video is… This is not my entry 🙂
Time for the Canadian to get back to work.
Thanks to Robert for the pix and thanks to “B” for the Tix.
Here’s a shot of a young fox we saw close to the house chill’n in the sun.
HELL YEAH !
I so wanted to be there welcoming the players and wishing them good luck. My smiling face was doing just that the first game of spring training last season and look how far the Rockies went…I’m just say’n 🙂
The Hotstove.com has been sending out questions to Rockies Bloggers and they’ve been posting my responses along with several other Rockies Bloggers.
Here’s the question from Feb 24, 2010:
If free agent infielder Felipe Lopez can be had for a bargain price, should the Rockies consider bringing him in to give Clint Barmes some competition at second base?
The other question was from today and it was:
The Rockies have been notoriously slow starters in the past few seasons, often digging a deep hole for themselves in April. Is it the cold weather in Colorado, or something else that keeps the team from performing well early in the season?
Answering questions about the Rockies is fun in anticipation of the regular season but thank god for basketball, it fulfulls my need to watch live sports and take pictures in the baseball off-season and doesn’t break the bank(Thanks B).
In a month we’ll be watching the Rockies play the Mariners. I have several goals for those two special games.
You ask why is it a special game? Honestly I’m not sure but the ticket prices suggest something special so when I figure out exactly what it is that justifies the extremely high cost of tickets for these two games I’ll let you know. (The cheapest ticket is $25.00)
First I’d like to get Ken Griffey Jr’s autograph(Yeah I know who wouldn’t). It’s doubtful he’d sign for me dressed up in my Rockies gear but my wife Krista will be with me and that levels the playing field.
Second I’d like to catch a batting practice homer and/or possibly a game foul ball.
Third, I’d like to get Jason Giambi’s autograph. Yes I know I have all season to do that but I figure I’d get ‘er done early and that’s one less thing to do.
By the way if you’re attending this game and would like to trade your BERM tickets for tickets in section 120 give me a shout.
I attended the Nuggets/Pistons game on Feb 26th with my buddy Tom and Vanilla Ice was the half-time show. This is the second time I’ve seen Vanilla Ice at the Pepsi Center as he did the same thing last season.
I’m not a fan, the video was shot only for future laughs.
This is a No-No, c’mon dude this was a good game.
George Karl, being a trooper and working through his illness.
If you’ve ever wondered why they call Chris Anderson “The Birdman” here’s why.
The Nuggets beat the Pistons 107-102.
Next weekend is Frozen Dead Guy Days in my town of Nederland, Colorado.
I plan to do a huge entry with pictures on FDGD explaining exactly what it is so you’ll have to check back to read it.
The games have begun, and I’m ready for some fun in the sun.
D..The Rockpile Ranter
I made an appearance at “The Can” last night to watch the Nuggets/Timberwolves game, along with 16721 other Macnuggets.
FACT: There are actually no Timberwolves fans in Colorado.
I ran into my buddy Jack and his friend from Summit County at the game. Jack is planning to head down to Tucson with me for Rockies Spring Training in February.
Chauncey Billups aka “Mr. Big Shot” scored 26 points. Those are the kind of numbers Allen Iverson and Melo used to put up.
Maybe now that Billups is in this lineup the points are getting spread around a little more?? It’s too early in the season to hit a slump Melo. You are the face of this team, unless you want Chauncey to be.
Big man Nene played 33 minutes and produced 12 points. JR Smith scored 14 points in 24 minutes. It was cool to see JR stepping-up a liittle, he’s been looking for his groove in all the wrong places so far this season.
I didn’t run into Jazz the Clown this game.
I’m not sure if he’s a season ticket holder or what.
Jazz, if you read this, send me an email.
This dude has got to have a story.
Here is a shot of the Elvis Cop in his usual stance. Rocky likes to torment this guy.
Clint Hurdle’s face on the big screen last night.
His mug popped up in the forth quarter to get the fans pumped up.
Damn Clint, not so close.
That’s how you end a game. Props to you JR !
