Rockies get hosed by the Big Unit
First in line today.
We hung out with Rockies longtime season ticket holder Alice.
Hunter and I made it to the Pavilion first. Hunter ran straight down to the field.
He asked Aaron Cook for a ball that was up against the fence.
Cookie tossed it to him without hesitation.
Hunter has been out snagging me the last couple of games(ok all year).
He and I were in different parts of the Pavilion for most of BP.
I snapped this picture of him doing his thing.
Clowns to the left of me .
Here I am stuck in the middle again.
I had a chance to snag two baseballs today and misjudged them both.
While I was taking this picture, a boy about Hunters age came up and asked if Hunter had gotten all those balls at BP today.
Hunter said “Yep”. The boy said that he hadn’t been able to get one. Hunter said ” sometimes it’s like that”.
I had to bit my lip because that came across kind of mean.
The little boy turned around and walked back to his mom. I looked at my boy and he knew what he needed to do. I didn’t have to say a word. Hunter ran over and gave that boy one of the balls he had snagged today. The little boy was elated and Hunter had that big old grin he gets when he knows he’s done something cool.
He’s getting it…my boy is getting it….Proud dad moment
Got to give some props tonight to my friend Dan. I straight up saw him catch Chris Iannetta’s home run hit in the second…
GREAT catch Dan..How many home runs balls is that for you like 40?
Dan and his daughter Emily earlier this——-> season.
I’m sitting close to where Dan caught that ball today at this Thursdays game with Berned..Maybe I’ll get lucky and catch my first live home run ball..
Then again, probably not if im sitting near Dan.
Below is a shot of Ryan Spilborghs dad during BP standing beside Robert. You think he bought that jersey??

I took over two hundred pictures today.
Way too many to upload on here, but I will share the good ones (or at least the ones I like), with you.

The Brat Pack The Big Unit picks up career win number 294 tonight. I hate losing to the D-Backs, but seeing Veteran Randy Johnson pitch was cool. He managed to keep the Rockies guessing this evening. What’s been up with Ubaldo his last couple of games? Has he gone back to his old ways? I’m seeing a pattern and its not pretty colors. Our pitching has to drastically improve soon. I like Ubaldo.I wonder what shook him. Was it Randy Johnson? Guess I can’t blame him. Rockies lose to the D-backs 4-2. We had chances in the fifth and seventh inning but couldn’t make anything of it. Such has been this season.
I’m still with you Rockies but losing at home sucks.
Nine games back with forty one games left. Hmmm..it’s still possible, but we are 1-9 against the D-Backs this year.
That near collision with Barmes and Hawpe was seriously close. Glad they both are ok.
Next game for me is Thursday with B.
