Isn’t it past time for America’s pastime?

2/10/10

As I kill time waiting for spring training to begin I’ve been playing around with Windows Movie Maker. Here are a few more videos I’ve made from pictures I took during the 2009 season. The first one is the second video I’ve done recently and it should have a picture of most everyone I see at Coors Field. The second one has some duplicate pictures.

 Hot Stove.com sent me another Rockies question today. The question was:
The Rockies signed closer Huston Street to a huge (3yr/$22.5 million) extension recently. Following a career year in 2009, should the club have instead stuck with a one-year deal, or do you like the long-term contract?

I’m sick of winter, football is finished and spring training hasn’t quite started. I stare at my pictures from last season and I long for good times and sunshine. There is some solace knowing I’m not alone but just a little.

                        Tell me, what do you do to stay busy during the off-season?

RPR Cooking with Grease on the Hot Stove

2/3/10

What a day. I’m still feeling the effects of this flu and woke up this morning about 6am with my back aching from sleeping the previous twenty hours. The “feeling like sh-it” hits in waves and today it’s about 50/50.

Not me really.JPG Anyways I checked my email this morning and there was an email from Tom Reese of HotStove.com. He was sending out a question to Rockies Bloggers regarding Jason Marquis.

The question was:

Did the Rockies make a mistake in allowing Jason Marquis to leave via free agency? The club doesn’t seem to have an heir apparent ready to take his spot in the rotation.Jason M 4-10-09.jpg

Great question. I was foggy headed when I replied with my answer but to my surprise it was printed at along with another Rockies Blogger that I’ve never heard of.

 Kind of neat to be quoted talking about your favorite sport. Believe me I’m not bragging just sharing :)

 I’ll know I’ve made it when Alana Rizzo from FSN is kind enough to interview me  :)

On a different note, Krista and I have been known to show Hunter and Mylee music videos from the 80’s. We do this so they understand exactly why we looked like we did back then and because every now and then you just need a good laugh.

A few weeks ago we showed them Twisted Sisters video of “We’re not gonna take it” and they fell in love with it. After watching it at least a hundred times the kids decided they wanted to try and copy the video.

                          If you’ve never seen the original video here it is:

                               Now here is Hunter and Mylee’s version. 

                                               I think they did a great job.

Along with the email from Tom Reese this morning was an email from my friend and long time Rockies fan Robert Harmon. It was a short email stating that he and Bennie were ok and he included a few pictures of what was left of his VW bus affectionately known as”Jim Morrison”.

FYI- I can legally marry people in the State of Colorado. I’ve got two under my belt and they’re both still married.

             How cool would it be to marry someone at Coors Field this season?

Who wants to be the first to get married by the Rockpile Ranter during a baseball game?
