D-Backs vs Rockies Game 4
Weather: 65 degrees, partly cloudy.
Wind: 7 mph, Out to CF.
Rockies fans look at the month of May as a test. Instead of starting the season off from behind and playing catch up the Rockies changed things up this season. We started off with a bang, and now it seems were out of ammo and just chuck’n water balloons.
Rantics in attendance today were, Robert, Dan, Emily, Amy, Jersey Geoff and Mike The Rox Addict.
Those of us who really like Ubaldo can feel his pain. I need to see the old “Nasty Fasty” back in action.
A few game shots for you.
We did get to see Bruce Billings Major League Debut.
Here’s his first pitch. He threw for two innings. His ERA is now 4.5
For me the highlight of this game was seeing Eric Young Jr back.
Here’s another familiar face. Holliday didn’t even get to take a swing.
Robert showed up for the game today. Was good to see him. Robert has reduced the number of games he’s attending. He’s not happy with the Rockies organization at the moment. If you’ve got some time ask him he’ll tell you about it.
Mike the Rox Addict and I hung out beside the ROOT SPORTS desk post-game to show our support despite this third loss at home to the D-Backs of all teams. You can see the final embarassing final score in the background.
Something’s wrong. The Rockies don’t feel like the Rockies to me. I’ll blame part of it on the lack of fan love they’ve been showing.
Remember fellas the same fans you diss pre-game are the same ones showing up supporting this half-as-sed team as we painfully watch you try and get it together.
Respect your fans and they’ll always support you and always remember where you came from.
Colorado Springs is only an hour away :)
Rockies fan but not standing nearly as tall as I used to.
D-Backs vs Rockies Game 3 of 4
Another Rockies loss at home. Just like the rain and the last month of crappy weather, I’ve had enough of that. ROCKIES…Somebody step and be that guy. We need one Rockies player to grab a big ‘ole book of matches and start lighting fuses under each of these Rockies a-sses.
It’s painful to watch. It’s even more painful if you paid to watch it.
I took about 800 pictures at this game but due to upload limitations and the fact this game was a loss I’ll have to cut it short.
I’m not sure what happened but Joy has been bringing her Chris Iannetta bat to every game she’s attended and the bat remains unsigned…Rockies what happened to the autograph luv on the wall?
Here’s the final score. I’m curious to know how many games the Rockies have lost this season by one game?
C,mon Rockies, give the fellas a good win streak to talk about.
I’m “D” The Rockpile Ranter and if needed I’ve got matches.
Here’s Tom, one of the nicest Rockies fans you’ll ever meet.
Gary and Alannah to the power of X
Hosers a hosing.
Here’s The Duece’s home run pictures series.
It looks good.
Giant’s Sanchez hits one foul.
Older fella realizes this is his ball.
He makes the dive for it.
Just like a baseball snagg’n stud he’s victorious, get that dude a beer or maybe a stretcher.
Here’s Hawaii Bob busting another fan smuggling booze inside of Coors Field. When will they learn?
Cargo has one sweet swing.
Wiggy gett’n jiggy on first base.
The best part of this game was the eighth inning. Rockies come from behind to take this game two.
Looks like I’m going to have to pay to blog from here forward. As you can tell from the compressed and reduced quality pictures in this entry, MLBlogs has switched to a WordPress blog format. It’s cool in some aspects but I’m not digg’n the part where I have to pay. I put a lot of money and time into my blog already and coughing up more dough for a fan blog doesn’t sit well with me. Also the fact that MLBlogs neglected to mention that we would have to pay until after the fact was a total cop out.
MLBlogs, I brought you over 600000 hits in just 2.5 years, thanks for nothing.
I guess their reasoning was that the picture limit would only be a problem for a few select blogs. The Rockpile Rant just happen to be one of them. Also somewhere in the blogosphere are about 70-80 of my missing blog entries.
I’ll figure this out. I’m still the Rockies #1 and I’m still having fun.
Rantics feel free to vent your feelings. I’d love to hear them.
Mets vs Rockies
Back at Coors after a not so great road trip.
The sky was ugly but it was warm. I’ll take warm anytime. Batting practice was better than usual for me today and I snagged three ground rule doubles. The first one I’m pretty sure was from Chris Iannetta and as it bounced into the first row I barehanded it.
The second bounced over Robert and Geoff”s head and I had a better spot in the tunnel which put me there first.
The third was a really nice catch off the bounce. All three were given away.
It’s not often I drink something purple but I’ll admit it was pretty good.
The groundkeeper stuck here under the tarp looks like a Teepee. Guys remind you of anything in the morning?
Here are some random pics.
I call this set of pictures:
“Hawaii Bob doin his Job”
“Excuse me sir may I see your tickets?”
Hawaii Bob gives them the boot and sends them on their way with a smile.
Cheers to you Jersey Geoff.
Other than Mike, Robert and I, these were really the only other Rockies fans hanging out after this loss.
That got us a little TV time. Thank you Joy for sending me this.
The first time I’ve ever heard the words Rockpile Ranter uttered on Television and it’s followed by the Cowboy saying I’ve got fleas and Tom saying I’ve got ants in my pants.
No worries, you get what you get when you’re a white boy and you shake your groove thing on TV.
You can expect a different dance now every time the Rockies lose and Mike and I are there postgame
Cheer on your Rockies, believe me you don’t wanna see us dance.
I’m “D” The Rockpile Ranter and this is the purple mohawk dude.
