Number 2?…Hell Yeah!!
I want to thank the Rockpile Rantics for their continued support. I’ve been waiting for the day when a Rockies Blog rules the MLBlogosphere and other than being beat out in January by a Phillies Fantasy Camp blog (that had the cover page of MLBlogs for a week), we’re there.
The Rockpile Rant is a fan MLBLog and there’s a reason it is ranks at number two. The Rockies fanbase is filled with year round fanatical baseball fans who live, eat and sleep baseball. We connect off-season and we keep baseball alive even when it’s -20 below like it’s been the last few days.
I want to thank ROOT SPORTS for making January a month to remember. I want to thank all of the Rockies fans who submitted Rockies essays to the Rant and my readers and friends who visit the Rant on a regular basis.
Big things are going to happen this season because as far as I’m concerned…
“It’s the Year of the Fan”
9/9/09 Happy B-Day to my beautiful wife Krista…
I’m sure I’ve mentioned this before about how I love having a routine. I don’t like surprises and I like to know what’s coming way ahead of time. I decided to take four days off from work and originally venture out to KC and attend a few Royals games. The trip was cancelled but I still had full intentions of making every Rockies game this past weekend.
In hindsite I should have made the trip to KC.
Here’s the result of what happens when a pedestrian blindly walks into a major crosswalk, the big jacked up Ford F-250 in front of me had to stop short and I had no reaction time. I plowed into his tow hitch and it went completly through the front of Krista’s car.
That was day one of my vacation 🙂
Anyways, without boring you with more details this vacation was a total bust.
I can tell you I have experienced all the joys of mountain living in the last couple of weeks short of running out of firewood.
Here’s a positive note…
The Latest Leaders List came out for August and Rockpile Rant moved from the number 9 spot in July to the number 5 spot for the month of August. My friend Emily writer of the Blog “I Live For This” came in number 4. Props to you Emily and all others who made the list.
Check this out….That puts two Rockies blogs in the top 5. That’s never happened before. It’s taken a few years and a helluva season but people around the world are starting to notice this team.
That was part of my mission when I started blogging and promoting the Colorado Rockies and I believe I’ll take just a little credit for that…Good Job D :)….(It’s my horn I can toot it).
I’ll be at Game 3 vs the Reds today. It’s a beautiful day and I got a feeling.
I have some pictures that haven’t made it into my blog that I would like to share.
Here is Robert getting interviewed for FSN All Access. I saw it and he did a good job. When it aired it had a lot of video of Robert’s catch of Spilborghs first home run this year and guess who else was in that video?
It was video of me chasing Robert as we both went for the Spilborghs homer. I couldn’t knock him down and he had the jump on me. All I could do was follow him and hope he bobbled it…Of course he didn’t 🙂
Hey…I just wanted to say “THANK YOU” for reading my Rockies blog. I have no fu*king idea why so many people read this sh*t.
I’m ready for the playoffs and I’m starting to wonder how the whole playoff ticket thing is going to go down. I painfully remember a few years back taking the day off and logging into my computer, sitting there excited ready to go, logging in, getting to the confirmation page, then nothing…still nothing…That hurt. Somebody totally dropped the ball there and they know it.
Don’t do that crap again “Rockies Ticket People”. I know there will be some kind of drawing for people who registered(I did), but as you read at the beginning of this blog I don’t have good luck spouting out my as-s on a regular basis.
I just want to be there …Know what I mean?
This is it Rockies fans, this “IS” the year, I know you know it, get out there and show it…D
