It’s been a while since I’ve been to a game or at least if feels that way. I had tickets but had to miss Tuesday and Wednesday’s games due to an injury. I really hate that. 

I discovered something called sciatica. Not fun stuff especially if you enjoy having feeling in your legs. 

Because of this, I’ll have to change my snagg’n game plan, at least until I’m back to 100%.  Instead of being able to run and chase baseballs, I’ll have to use my superior tracking skills to be a little more choosy on the batting practice snags I attempt.

                      Such is life I guess…Gett’n old sucks. 

Today I got lucky and snagged the first one of BP within a minute of entering the pavilion. It was a fairly easy catch, the only hiccup was manuevering between the seats to get to the rail in time.

I gave that ball to a young Rockies fan who was nearby. I can always use karma points :). 

Shortly after my handoff, Rant Regular Ken snagged a Tulowitzki BP homer.

                                                Here’s video of it shot by Dan

                              I believe Ken’s total for the day was two, nice job.

Mike is back from his big East Coast baseball trip.

He mentioned he took a thousand pictures including some of “interesting fans” along the way..

                                     Here’s a few of Mike’s pictures…PNC Park

                                           Thanks for sharing Mike!

Starting pitcher today is Ubaldo Jiminez aka known as“Nasty Fasty” here on the Rant...

                     Here’s Nasty Fasty doing the Pre-Game Walk of Shame

                   (If you listen closely, you’ll hear me tell Ubaldo he has nothing to be ashamed about)

The Handoff 8-27-10.jpg
                                                        Good Job Ubaldo !


Blake’s grand slam in the 8th really killed the whole mood.

                     The Dodgers have owned the Rockies the last couple of years.


I was really hoping the Rockies would pull this one off for Ubaldo. I wanted to be able to say I was at the game where Ubaldo achieved his 18th win

                                                       But not this time.Dodgers score 2 8-27-10.jpg                Rockies lose to the Dodgers at Coors field with a final score of 6-2.

                 The hunt for Ubaldo’s 18th win continues…Where will it happen?
