Giants stand tall as the Rockies fall
GIANTS VS ROCKIES GAME 1
Today game was the official debut of the “New Ranter Hat”. If you follow this blog you know that the Rockies gave away 15,000 floppy hats similar to mine a few weeks back.
No worries it was time to change things up a little bit.
My friend Pete and I arrived at the Rockpile gate and were one of the first few through the gates.
We were to meet Scott and Stuart inside after batting practice. The Rockies decided not to take advantage of the beautiful weather and let the Giants take over the field.
In hindsight, they Rockies probably should have taken the opportunity and “Been on the Green”.
Today I ran into Kylie the infamous “Blake Street Blogger. I knew she would be attending this game and it wasn’t hard to spot her right up front in the Pavilion.
It was obvious that she was excited to be at Coors Field because she was beaming.
Welcome to Colorado Kylie, and your new home away from home Coors Field :)
I knew Joy (aka LUVMYROX) would be at this game too. I spotted her to my left taking pictures.
Below is the picture Joy took of me taking a picture her taking a picture of me. Thanks Joy :)
I managed to snag one ball today. It hit the bleachers in between a group of people and rolled down three rows right to me.
It was a perfect baseball and it was Kylie’s.
I ran into Geoff, he had the good seats today and he was showing off his snag of the day.
By the end of the first inning Cook had given up three runs.
Cook’s shoulder started to hurt and Tracy pulled him after walking Nate Schierholtz to open the fourth.
Props to Seth Smith for his 10th homer of the season in the 8th.
This loss hurt, I can hear my friend Todd (the guy have the Rockies/Giants season long bet with) in the distance. He is laughing at me and he sounds like Nelson from the Simpsons.
Rockies I can’t have that. I need a win tonight and so do you.
I have the best readers and I appreciate every one of you…D
