Mets vs Rockies
Weather: 71 degrees, cloudy.
Wind: 9 mph, Out to CF.
T: 2:35 (:50 delay) for rain and hail
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.
Today I discovered a “Purple Margarita”
It’s not often I drink something purple but I’ll admit it was pretty good.
Rockies were down two nothing in the second until “The Duece let loose with the juice”
Tulo hits a beauty off of Pelfrey. The Right field crowd realizing the baseball is headed their way.
If you look closely in-between the railing you can see Tulo’s homer.
Then the mad scramble for it.
All you can see here is a hand with a watch holding a ball.
In reality the dude with the black shirt and black hat snagged the ball and his little girl is holding it.
Not long after Seth Smith does the same thing. You can see Smith’s homerun ball top of the picture in the middle.
All I can say is if that was my wiener I’d be treating it a little better…Can you say condiments?
Dude catches the first one.
But totally bobbles the second one…They boo-ed him…LOL
The Coors Field “Crack of the Game”.
Not to be outdone Cargo gets his first homerun at Coors this year in the sixth inning.
You can see Cargo’s homerun just above the yellow line on the right side. On the left side of this picture you can see Douglas cheering.
In the seventh inning with Dexter Fowler at bat the game gets delayed for rain and depending on where you were sitting…hail.
Check out the hail.
Out comes the tarp. Notice there are eight guys in the picture.
Now how many do you see?
Here’s the dude just before he gets completely covered.
The groundkeeper stuck here under the tarp looks like a Teepee. Guys remind you of anything in the morning?
Here he is making his exit to a cheering crowd.
After fifty minutes they removed the sand bags, folded up the tarp and Dexter Fowler was back up to bat.
Dexter fouled one off his knee and goes down quick.
Dexter exited the game and Ryan Spilborghs took his spot.
Here are some random pics.
Jon Herrera daring someone to cross this line.
I call this set of pictures:
“Hawaii Bob doin his Job”
“Excuse me sir may I see your tickets?”
“Sir these are Rockpile tickets. You’re sitting in the wrong section”
Hawaii Bob gives them the boot and sends them on their way with a smile.
Ian Stewart broken bat series.
Cheers to you Jersey Geoff.
Best jacket of the game :) Mets take this one 4-3. I hate losing to the Mets at home.
Mike…The Rox Addict standing tall in the Homeboy Hangout.
Mark, Tracy and Tom Post Game.
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.
We both agree, it’s time for the Rockies to get a grip and stop this slip….D
