The Tom Helmer of FSN Rocky Mountain interview/Rantic get together is back on. It will be held at Champps at 8325 Park Meadows Center Drive in Littleton at 5-6pm on Saturday January 8th.

Remember folks this is all non-formal. Tom’s interview might take ten minutes and the rest of the time you can ask Tom questions, have a drink, eat some dinner if you want (I am), or just hang out and drink a hot chocolate.

                             Krista and I will be there, I really hope to see you there.

I gotta say I’m glad the Rockies were able to sign Carlos Gonzalez. I know it’s a lot of money, but seven years for 80 million is a bargain for Cargo. I figure Cargo took this deal is because he’s happy here and he’s extremely well liked by the Rockies fans. 

                                       A total win/win situation for the Rockies.  

From everything I’ve witnessed this season Cargo is well on his way to becoming a superstar and it’s nice to know he’ll call Colorado home for the next seven years.

      So we’ve got Cargo and Tulo to build a team around. That my friends is a great start :)

 I also read that former Rockie Brad Hawpe is soon to be a Padre.

That ought to make Queen Geri happy as she’ll at least get to see him several times a season. 

I’m “D” The Rockpile Ranter and it’s gonna be a good year.

Hey D,
Count me in for Saturday. Should be a blast.
I’m totally stoked about Cargo especially with locking up Tulo. What a 1, 2 punch that is :)
Brad to the Padres huh? That will be weird seeing him when they come to town.
Looking forward to seeing you Saturday.

R-Luv-I’m glad you will be there Saturday. Looks like there should be a bunch of us…Gonna be fun, I can’t wait…D

Cargo and Tulo is indeed a heck of start to build a team around. The Rockies were really smart to lock in long contracts in these cases.

What a great time this was tonite! Tom was gracious and did a great interview with both Don and a coupla questions from Alannah X. His wife was a sweetie, too!

Good to see da Rantics en masse and what a great location to “hang out.”
