Dodgers vs Rockies Game One

Ran into this “flash from the past” struggling to take a hard right while parking  today close to Coors Field. Cool horses, terrible beer.

I know the dude pushing the shopping cart is wondering if all those cases if beer are full?

Colorado  is a microbrew state..Coors beer isn’t much better but at least it’s a Banquet beer whatever that is? Life is short people. I don’t always drink beer,… but when I do I prefer good beer :)

No big entry for this game. Batting practice started off slow and was uneventful for the Rockies portion of it. The Dodgers gave some luv to right field and the extreme left side of left field. By the end of BP I had managed to snag two. The first was a ground rule double which I gave to a little boy who was there with his dad.

The second was a toss up that was not thrown hard enough to reach it’s intended recipient and it ended up in my glove.  Shortly thereafter it was nestled into the glove of a young Rockies fan. 

It was really cool to see Joy and Jim again at Coors and for the first time this season I ran into Queen Geri. Great to see you all. Nice hang’n with Douglas, Amy and her pops in line.

I’d like to get a group picture of as many Rantics as possible one game before the end of this season.Maybe the fireworks game in September??

Oh yeah..They gave away a Giambi T-Shirt today.

 Here are a few pictures I thought were worth sharing from this Rockies loss.

First pitch of the game.

Long time Rockies Usher “Beard” giving the all clear.

These couple pictures are from when Kemp got tagged in the helmet with the ball. It deflects off the glove then hits his helmet and he drops like a rock.

Seemed like Kemp was ok after a bit.

Helton gets a double.

Jim and Joy feeling about like I was during this game.

The Rockies couldn’t seem to put anything together this evening. When it started to rain I was tired and done and I headed for my truck.

The Rockies lose this one to the Blue 8-2. A big thank you to Jersey Geoff for the ticket to this game. I’m glad I didn’t pay for an expensive seat to watch this snoozer.

Don’t forget to send in your picture for the “Ranter’s Photo Contest” to win that ultra cool Carlos Gonzalez figurine.

I’m the Ranter, tomorrow is “The Duece’s” bobblehead day. I’ll be there standing in line along with half of Colorado.
