Basketball’s Fine but Baseball’s Divine

3/3/10

let the games begin.jpgTomorrow is the first official Rockies spring training game of 2010 against the D-Backs.

                                                     HELL YEAH !

I so wanted to be there welcoming the players and wishing them good luck. My smiling face was doing just that the first game of spring training last season and look how far the Rockies went…I’m just say’n :)

The Hotstove.com has been sending out questions to Rockies Bloggers and they’ve been posting my responses along with several other Rockies Bloggers. 

Here’s the question from Feb 24, 2010:

If free agent infielder Felipe Lopez can be had for a bargain price, should the Rockies consider bringing him in to give Clint Barmes some competition at second base?

The other question was from today and it was:

The Rockies have been notoriously slow starters in the past few seasons, often digging a deep hole for themselves in April. Is it the cold weather in Colorado, or something else that keeps the team from performing well early in the season?

Answering questions about the Rockies is fun in anticipation of the regular season but thank god for basketball, it fulfulls my need to watch live sports and take pictures in the baseball off-season and doesn’t break the bank(Thanks B).

In a month we’ll be watching the Rockies play the Mariners. I have several goals for those two special games.

You ask why is it a special game? Honestly I’m not sure but the ticket prices suggest something special so when I figure out exactly what it is that justifies the extremely high cost of tickets for these two games I’ll let you know. (The cheapest ticket is $25.00)

First I’d like to get Ken Griffey Jr’s autograph(Yeah I know who wouldn’t). It’s doubtful he’d sign for me dressed up in my Rockies gear but my wife Krista will be with me and that levels the playing field.

Second I’d like to catch a batting practice homer and/or possibly a game foul ball.

Third, I’d like to get Jason Giambi’s autograph. Yes I know I have all season to do that but I figure I’d get ‘er done early and that’s one less thing to do.

By the way if you’re attending this game and would like to trade your BERM tickets for tickets in section 120 give me a shout.

I attended the Nuggets/Pistons game on Feb 26th with my buddy Tom and Vanilla Ice was the half-time show. This is the second time I’ve seen Vanilla Ice at the Pepsi Center as he did the same thing last season.

           I’m not a fan, the video was shot only for future laughs.
