Game one down no reason to frown

gameday audio.jpgI’d love to tell you how great it was to watch the first Rockies game of the year but I had to listen to it on MLB Gameday Audio.

 We dropped the cable package we had because we’re moving soon and now I can’t watch the game at home anymore.

Let’s just say the game that I heard was a great game. Props to the D-Backs for taking this one. I was proud of the way the Rockies played today and I can’t wait to “see” more.

Brandon Webb was off of his game and Aaron Cook seem to follow suit. Wiith that being the case it was an all out slugfest that didn’t take long to get rolling.

Cook gave up the first home run to Lopez in the first inning. Cook went 2 1/3 innings and gave up seven hits and six runs, four of those runs in the third inning,…ouch. On a bright not Cook right now is batting 1000.

Stud of the Rockies for the first game was Brad Hawpe, 3 for 4 with 3 RBI’s. Right now Hawpe is batting .750. hawpe prize1.jpg

Troy Tulowitzki and Chris Iannetta both homered in the 4th inning, Seth Smith homered in the 7th. Big Todd went 1 for 4 today.

Not being able to see this game on TV today is my punishment for not being in Phoenix to support my team and see this game live. I try not to question it, I know it’s just some sort  F’ked up charmic balance that keeps me grounded…usually. It sucks because sometimes I just wanna fly.

Congrats to my friend Rick and his wife on the birth of their daughter.

My deepest sympathies got out to my friend Willa on the very recent loss of her husband who had been battling a long illness. She’s a sweet lady and very kind.

The Nuggets/Thunder game with Hunter is on Wednesday and Hunter has come up with a few good questions to ask Carmelo Anthony.

1. What other sports do you like to play?

2. Do you have any pets? (We have two pugs, a puggle and two frogs).

Hunter and I are huge Nuggets fans (if you couldn’t tell from a lot of my previous blog entries), and we’re really looking forward to the entire evening. Hunter is playing basketball in grade 4 this year so he’ll be diggin on all of this.

Crushed.jpgThe Rockpile Rant was eliminated today in the “Max Madness” brackets. Eat, Sleep, Baseball layed the smack down hard.

I’m not sure what the ending totals were, but the last I looked it was like 70/30…Congrats.

Possible rain on the home opener for the Rockies. Who the F’ck knows here.

 The weather report changes daily/hourly so I’m just going to hope for no rain and no snow and be ready for anything.

Anybody that’s going to Rockies opening day wanna give a shout out? I’ll take your picture, you know cause that’s what I do.

Tomorrow I’ll post the questions for the Rockies Fan Profile. Anyone want to offer up some last minute good questions? As always I’d love to hear your suggestions.

                        Go Rockies. Do what you do, I want a win in game two…D

D – we had our home opener/season opener rained out. Take 2 today! Enjoy the b-ball game! Both my boys play and they love it! I hope Hunter is enjoying it also.

JULIA-I saw that, I’m hoping we don’t get rained out here. Hunter loves team sports…D

D,
I know I am facing Eat,Drink, Baseball next. We just have to put the smackdown on him. lol
Seriously, that was a great offensive power display in that first game. I truly hope you guys do not have to score 7 plus a night to stay into games.
But it was also the first game and usually the hitters are in front of the pitchers in regards to control and command early in the year.
Still, hope Jason Hammel gets you guys some quality innings. you will like the tall and lanky guy. He is a great fan guy who loves to sign and is just one of those good old boys.

RAYSREN-You got my vote brotha. Thanks for the scoop on Hammel, we could use the help in that dept…D

“Possible rain on the home opener for the Rockies”
Kathy Sabine says it’s “supposed” to be mild & 52 degrees (fairenhieght) for the home opener & a chance of light snow on Sat & light rain sun, but then again it’s Colorado! the weather’s unpredictable here.
I’ll bring my rain poncho with me just incase.Missyhttp://rocktober-2007.mlblogs.com
