Beat by blue, bring on game two

4/25/09

Its 5am and I’m getting stuff ready for my yard sale. As I type it is sprinkling out. As much as is sucks losing to the Dodgers at home (I hate losing to the Dodgers) I had fun and met a couple of fellow bloggers.

I didn’t get to socialize with them as it was during batting practice and I don’t talk too much durring BP.

Here is Emily, creator and writer of the Blog I Live for This and Tom Walsh, creator and writer of Rocky Mountain Way…Outside Coors looking in.

                                Both Rockies blogs and both excellent ones.

Batting practice was quite slow. I think maybe 10 BP homeruns were hit total. I snagged a toss up from Spilborghs which I gave to a kid behind me and I snagged another on the fly from Dodgers # 14 Juan Castro. I gave that ball to Emily.

I don’t have time to do a monster blog but I took some pretty cool pictures last night. I was lucky yesterday and Dan hooked me up with “Row 1″ seats (Thanks Dan). I was about as far left in the Pavilion as you can go. Excellent home run seats.

                                              Nothing was hit in my direction. 

                                        Here is a shot of the field from my seat.

More pictures on this entry when I can. I’ll leave you with one of Helton and one of Manny.Helton ball 4-24-09.jpg

With a stinking sinker, Cook gets shook

4/18/09

 Ouch,

Rockies lose to the Dodgers 9-5 in LA. 

That makes seven wins in a row for the Dodgers (9-3) and two straight losses for the Rockies (4-6), 

The only thing I hate more than losing to the Dodgers on the road is losing to them at Coors Field.

Man-Ram had Cookie’s number today as he chalks up his first two homers of the season. One in the first inning and one in the third.

Wonder if that was what shook Cook?

 Props to Brad Hawpe and Ian Stewart. Hawpe hit a triple to score two and Stewart had a sweet solo homer in the 8th.,

It’s still early but it seems like at any given time the Rockies are firing on about five of their nine cylinders.

 The Rockies are keeping this engine on the road and running, but until all nine cylinders are in sync it’s just gonna be a bumpy ride.

                                       

 

 

                      Ranter’s Bad Joke of the Day

A cowboy walks into a bar, after two steps in he realizes it’s a gay
bar. “What the heck,” he says to himself, “I really want a drink.”
When the gay waiter approaches, he says to the cowboy, “What’s the name
of your willy?”

The cowboy says, “Look, I’m not into any of that. All I want is a
drink.”

The gay waiter says, “I’m sorry but I can’t serve you until you tell me
the name of your willy. Mine for instance is called NIKE, for the slogan,
“Just Do It.” That guy down at the end of the bar calls his SNICKERS, because
‘It really satisfies.”

The cowboy looks dumbfounded, so the bartender tells him he will give
him a second to think it over. So the cowboy asks the man sitting to his left
who is sipping on a beer, “Hey bud, what’s the name of yours?”

The man looks back and says with a smile, “TIMEX.”

The thirsty cowboy asks, “Why Timex?”

The fella proudly replies, “‘Cause it takes a lickin’ and keeps on
tickin!’”

A little shaken, the cowboy turns to two fella’s on his right, who
happen to be sharing a fruity Margarita and says, “So, what do you guys call
yours?”

The first man turns to him and proudly exclaims, “FORD, because
“Quality is Job One.” Then he adds, “Have you driven a Ford lately?” The guy next
to him then says, “I call mine CHEVY…’Like a Rock!’” And gives a wink!

Even more shaken, the Cowboy has to think for a moment before he comes
up with a name for his manhood. Finally, he turns to the bartender and
exclaims,  “The name of my willy is SECRET. Now give me a beer.”

The bartender begins to pour the cowboy a beer, but with a puzzled look
asks, “Why  Secret?”

The cowboy says, “Because it’s ‘STRONG ENOUGH FOR A MAN, BUT MADE FOR A
WOMAN.

Snagging behind enemy lines for the first time

3/1/09

The Rockies are in Phoenix today and I’ll be heading up there tomorrow after my last home game at Hi-Corbett Field. Today I plan to check out TEP (Tucson Electric Park).

 I’m going to go watch the Arizona vs Oakland game today and see what batting practice for another team is like.

Other than obtaining Clint Hurdle and Don Baylor’s autograph on my magazines, my hunting is complete.

<—–Andy still needs to get Tulo’s autograph on his wife’s visor or he’s in big trouble.

By the way, it’s not cold here, Andy has the hoodie on because of his sunburn :)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here are pictures from yesterday’s game against the Dodgers.

 

                                               Here’s Manny Corpas warming-up.
Manny 2-28-09.jpgNext is one of my favorite Rockies pitchers of all time. Josh Fogg, aka “The Dragon Slayer”. The smoke this guy can throw is amazing. Plus myself being the Ranter I’m all about cool nicknames and “The Dragon Slayer” is a helluva cool nickname.
