Could it be…The Ranter on TV?
After it all happened I figured I might be on TV. Props to Robert for snaggin Spilborgh’s home run ball in the third inning. Spilborghs is his favorite Rockies player.
Robert was sporting Spilly’s Jersey and immediatly after he snagged that home run ball Spilly’s dad called Robert on his cell phone.
Don’t believe me,… look how happy this old man is.
Robert asked me later how close I was to him when he snagged that ball and I told him if he had stopped any shorter we’d have known each other too well.
Good job Robert, the dude is quick. Next time I’ll sit on the other side of him.
Click on the link below and check out the video of it all:
Today I was the first in line at the Rockpile gate and things were as they should be in Rockie land.
Here is a shot of Dan and Robert politely discussing one of yesterday’s batting practice snags :)
I was lucky again today and Dan hooked me up with a Row 1 ticket. This enabled me to go onto the field during the autograph session. I’ve never done this before and let me tell you it was beyond cool.
Check out the video of me entering the field:
Manny Corpas came out and signed for a few people then split.
Ubaldo Jimenez also came out and signed for the whole group.
I skipped Ubaldo because I have him already. I was able to give him a knuckle bump and wish him good luck this year. Nice guy.
Here is Jason Hammel coming up to sign for us.
Looks like Jason will get his first start for the Rockies on Monday’s game against the Padres.
Good luck Jason!
In the video below Robert and I were almost to the Pavilion when I heard someone call out “Rockpile Ranter”. That someone was Missy from “View from the Rockpile”.
Missy is an Usher at Coors Field and was on her way to Gate E when we ran into her. This was the first time her and I have met and it was really cool to finally run into her at a game.
A little Rockie history for you.
Here are a few of the Rockies warming-up
Chris Iannetta signs before every game. Rumor has it he does it because he’s superstitious. Superstitious or not he’s a good guy and I believe he’d sign anyway.
He signs for about 5 minutes then goes over to stretch and work out.
Spilly and Hawpe
Jeff Baker and Brad Hawpe
Krista made me put in this picture. She said it summed up the Dodgers lack of excitement in this game. I just don’t get it??
Captain Earthman, business as usual entertaining the masses
Tulowitzki I call this picture…”Brat with a view”
I really like our new pitcher Marquis, the guy has been a superstar for us.
This game was just what I and all Rockies fans needed.
An in your face, blue bashing, get out of town, you got lucky on the last one, Rockies win.
I especially love beating the Dodgers.
Days like today are special. How often does a person get to go underneath Coors Field, then stand on the field and get autographs? I’m glad I could share some of it with you.
I’ll be at Coors tomorrow for batting practice (weather permitting).
Who knows what whill happen? Stay tuned…D
