Would be phat to own this bat

12/26/08

scary santa 11.JPGOk, X-mas is over. No more fat guy in a red suit scaring the crap out of our kids.

It was a huge success and my kids are loaded up with toys and clothes to last another year (I hope).

 I have to say, RockBand is really freggin cool. My wife has this thing where she can’t watch video games for long because of the rapid eye movement jacks her up.

 Not only can she watch Rockband, the kicker is……she really digs playing it.

Judas priest1.jpgI swear my kids rocked out for most of the day. I myself, began mastering the drums.

I only wish you could pick the songs that “you” want to hear. Anyways, just thought I’d give the game a plug. Great family entertainment, plus it gets your kids listening to a lot of the music you listened to growing up, you know, the good stuff.

 

 So you can think of playing RockBand as sort of a Tiger woods nike.jpgmusical history lesson.

You need to play this game, I’m never wrong about this stuff.

The game I really want to play next is Tiger Woods Golf for the Wii, I can’t wait.Ballparks book.jpg

 

 My mother and father-in-law gifted me a really cool book about ballparks for X-mas.

The pictures in this book are incredible. There’s some history about the parks too.

Heavy to hold, but fun to read.

 

                        Below are a few pictures from Colorado’s own Coors field.

Coors page 3.jpg          I love pictures, and I love baseball. This was a very thoughtful gift, Thank you.

I work right beside a sporting goods store and I decided to walk over and see if they had any Rockies gear on sale, you know the deeply discounted crap they’re desperate to get rid of.

 They had a whole bunch of Matt Holliday Jerseys priced at half off. 

Bikinis half off1.jpgHuh, only half off? I don’t understand, unless your planning on flying to California and getting Matt to autograph the Jersey, then fly back and hang it on your wall, in my opinion the jersey is almost worthless.  

 Good luck with trying to do that, it’s not easy to get Matt Holliday to sign anything. While he was a Rockie and before home games started, it seemed like he would hide underneath the Stadium until the last minute then come onto the field. 

The dude rarely took batting practice, sorry Matt, but it’s true. I’m not hating, I’m just stating.

Half off, give me a freggin break. 

I did manage to find a good deal, I found a Rockies hoodie for a great price. 

Actually the price was so good I bought two. 

Just wait a year Tampa Bay Ray fans, you’ll be able to find all kinds of good deals on baseball stuff.

 Here’s  something cool I spotted someone selling:
 I normally would keep this to myself but it offically went out of my price range a little while back.

 It’s Todd Helton’s pink baseball bat
. Click on the link to go straight to the auction. Last I looked it was at $50.00 plus shipping. The auction ends this Saturday around noon.
This bat deserves to be owned by a Rockies fan.

Ok, so someone who doesn’t have any kids step up to the plate here and give this thing a good home. 

                       Your probably the only ones with any cash left after X-mas.


Todd helton pink bat1.jpg
(Just for the record, I do not own this bat, nor do I know who the hell is selling it. I’m just pointing out a neat piece of history up for sale).


This bat was signed and used by Colorado Rockies #17 Todd Helton on Mother’s Day 2008 in observance of Breast Cancer Awareness.

There were seven Rockies players who used the pink bats on Mother’s day.

Todd is my favorite player and I would love to be the owner of this bat. Like I said, I’m telling you about it because I feel a loyal Rockies fan should give her a good home.  

Here’s a link to the story on MLB.com….. Pink bat story by Mark Newman. I wonder if Todd kept the other bat?

                         Hmmm, who knows I could always give him a ring and ask him?

Glad you enjoyed Rock Band. And you’re right about the music – our boys got Guitar Hero and the songs on it are great. I hope a Rockies fan gets the bat. Keep your blog coming!

I just got RockBand for Hannukah and I was playing it with my brother today and it is so annoying and just kind of funny when the person is singing and they don’t know the song at all but they keep making the noises so the game thinks they got the notes right.

ELLIE-Hi, it’s funny you say that because I’ve been humming the words to songs I didn’t know all the words to for years. With this game it tells you the lyrics. Now I don’t have to hum anymore.
BABYPAUL-Your welcome, hope all is good with you. Are you ready for April??…D

Hey D,
That’s cool that you and the whole family plays Rockband together. The book you got looks killer.
Question….did they have any more of those Rockies shirts and if so which store did you get them at? That is a freakin’ great price. Also, what is the count til the first game. I could go count’em up but figured you would already know.
Thanks for taking the time to put out a blog every day, I live for the crazy pictures and interesting commentary.

R-LUV- Today is Saturday, not counting today there are 100 days left until the Rockies first game with the D-backs on April 6th. There are 104 days till the Rockies home opener against the Phillies. There are 57 days untiI I leave for spring training and 59 days until the Rockies first spring training game. I bought the hoodie at Sports Authority, and they had a bunch, look toward the back of the store..Hope your find a few left…D

Thanks on your marvelous posting! I certainly enjoyed
reading it, you’re a great author. I will ensure that I bookmark your blog and will eventually come back in the foreseeable future. I want to encourage you to definitely continue your great job, have a nice morning!
