Rockies can’t pay so Holliday’s an A

a-s logo.jpgI just heard that the Rockies have traded Matt Holliday to the Oakland A’s.

Nobody is saying for sure who the Rockies might get in exchange for Holliday as the Rockies have only reached a tentative agreement with the A’s.

 Some of the names mentioned are reliever Huston Street, lefty Greg Smith and outfielder Carlos Gonzalez.

That is all I’ve heard right now..I don’t think this trade was as much for getting someone, as it was to avoid paying Holliday his 13.5 million due on his contract for the upcoming season.

  I went to the Denver Nuggets game last night with Krista and Hunter. I’m not going to do a huge game recap because it just wasn’t all that exciting.

 At least the game part.

The Nuggets get the win over the Grizzlies 100-90.

Here’s the deal, the game up until the end was way closer than it should have been. Chauncey Billups put up 16 points which is great, but he was 2 of 13 from field goal range and 2 of 6 from three-point range.

At least he was nailing his foul shots.

 Props again to Nene who shot 8 of 10 from field goal range for 18 points. Mello was Mello. We didn’t get backstage this game. 

14,359 people attended this snoozer.

  I will tell you I was lucky enough to snag something.

One of the  promotions during the commercial breaks is the Parachute drop.

 It’s just a T-Shirt rolled up into a tube.

I finally freggin caught one.

I’ve been trying for years.

 It’s not that I suck that bad,  I just don’t usually sit on the first level. That’s my story.

Catching that shirt was at least the equivalent of snagging a live foul ball don’t you think?

I didn’t say home run ball, I just said foul ball.

  Here’s what the T-Shirt looks like unrolled.

I’m not sure what I got all excited about. It’s never going to fit.

Now that I think about it, they should just toss an un-wrinkled  T-Shirt down from the rafters with out a parachute.

 It’s not like it would hurt anyone.

I mean, would you just look at the wrinkles in this shirt.

 

 

Female Ref and Karl 11-9-08.JPG

 

I finally saw Referee Violet Palmer. the first ever female NBA Referee.

 #12  Violet Palmer.

On April 26, 2006 she was the first woman to officiate a major men’s sport at the top professional level. It was a Pacer vs Nets game.

I can’t give her all the credit, but if you watched this game you had to notice the officiating was horrible.

Violet was one of the referees working on December 19,2006. There was a brawl that evening between the Nuggets and the Knicks.

All ten players that were on the floor were ejected.

Some call her inconsistent, she does have her critics, but who doesn’t.

While I was sitting in my seat, my wife pointed out an odd fella wearing a Nuggets Jersey.

Can you spot him?

Meet Jazz the Clown.

 Say what you want, but I like this guy.

 First off, anyone with balls enough to wear that outfit in public is ok with me. 

But to top it off, he’s sporting a JR Smith jersey and he’s at the game with his son. That’s cool.

It’s like the Nuggets version of Homie the Clown and I love it. 

Can I just say…

Jazz you Rock Man !

 I’d like to hear more on details on Matt Holliday’s departure.

 It’s kind of sad, but we all knew it was coming.

Do you think they’ll spend his money on another big hitter?…I don’t. 

What do you think is on Matt’s mind right now?

The same thing that has always been on his mind.

What the hell were we thinking getting rid of the best outfielder in the game , they will never win the world series if they keep dealing away our best players ,
his age is no problem he isn’t injury prone we need to grow the balls to offer real money to keep him, he is well worth it and he will help get our team a world series, getting rid of matt holliday is the biggest mistake the rockies could make.

I feel you on that s-dog… but in this division, 13 million is a serious chunk of change. As much as I like him, Holliday can be replaced. They could better spend that money on some pitching…D
