No clue at all about the mystery ball

1/11/09

I was wondering if someone might be able to help me out with this little mystery. I got a really good deal a a few 2007 World Series baseballs that I plan on getting signed either at Rockies Fest or spring training.

One of the baseballs showed up with an autograph already on it. I’ve spent a few hours researching this already. I haven’t given up, I’m just seeing if anyone out there might have a clue. I’m using my resources…Yeah that’s it.

                                  Here’s the ball and the mystery autograph.

Now common sense tells me the autograph is hopefully someone from the Rockies or the Red Sox because it’s a 2007 World Series ball. But you never know? I owe someone a drink if you figure this one out…D

That makes two Rockies who have received invitations. Brad Hawpe also has an invite but at this point he hasn’t committed.

I can’t wait to see Todd Helton back in the Rockies lineup.

Lets hope his back will back him up.

When Todd’s out on first base, everything seems right. When he’s at bat, anything can happen.

        I miss that feeling, don’t you?

Speaking of Todd Helton, my friend Dan Sauvageau came over the other day and gave me a little gift.

He must know I’m a huge Helton fan because he gave me a Todd Helton Golden Glove bobble head from 2002.


My Rockies Bobble heads.jpg The Rockies don’t have that many bobble heads compared to other teams and this one is REALLY cool.  Notice the bright gold glove. Nice detail on this piece.

Thank you Dan, that was really cool man.

Dan has agreed to be my first Rockies Fan Profile of the regular season. I think that’s appropriate because Dan was the first person to ever come up to me and ask “Are you the Rockpile Ranter?”.

 Dan is a good dude and I hope during that Fan Profile to be able to tell you about some of the really cool things Dan does for other Rockies fans.

There are many readers of this blog who can testify to Dan’s kindness and generosity. I

I mentioned Dan to my to my friends Gary and David, at first Gary didn’t understand and said “What you talking about Ranter”, but after he realized who were talking about, he and David agree Dan is a stand up guy.

In Nuggets news, goodbye Chucky Atkins. I really liked Chucky but the poor dude barely got any playing hardwood time.

We traded Chucky, a draft pick and cash considerations for center Johan Petro and a future draft pick from Oklahoma City, January 7th.

The Nuggets acquired center Johan Petro and a second-round-draft pick from Oklahoma City on Jan. 7, in exchange for guard Chucky Atkins, a first-round-draft pick and cash considerations.

Petro was averaging 4.6 ppg and 4.3 rpg in 22 games for the Thunder this season.

Just curious, who of you among the Rant readers is planning on a trip to Tucson? If so, when?…D
