The Rockies Run to the Pennant


For those in the 303, I must recommend you check out an airing of the Rockies Run to the Pennant on FSN. I believe the next show time is Thurs night. Set your tivos. I'd be lying if I said tears weren't welling up at a few moments. Even better, Cactus League action is about to take place on FSN. T minus 15 days....

I got about 80 % of today's showing of 21 DAYS. Even for a fan like myself, it was enjoyable to relive. Especially considering how improbable the entire situation truly was.
I might have to peep some Cactus League action.

Rain out! @#%! But, working at home tomorrow for tomorrow's 2pm game with the Giants bodes well. 40 degrees and rain sure wasn't the spring training experience for DT and myself.

at least there are floating hurdle heads for me to watch.

I DVR'd that sucker last week....but enjoyed the repeat showing that popped up this weekend.

damn, i was ready to switch over from the Bay Hill thingy to some cactus league action only to see an old Rox/Snakes showdown from last year.

I really can't get enough of the floating Hurdle head....

Sonic Tooth said...

Speaking of tears-nearly-welling-up (and Hurdle's cubist head), The Sporting News has a pretty damn awesome Hurdle feature in the most recent issue, makes him out to be a very admirable manager and dude.

21 Days...I'm down with reliving that any old day. So f***ing unbelievable and fun. Believe it, YB...I better be cracking some nuts and drinking some ballpark brews in the Coors Field sun with you this season! Toddler daughter mayhem?!?

wow. ian stewart goes very yard to beat the giants today in the bottom of the 10th. nix with a dinger early in the game too for the youngsters.

Nix's 3rd dong of the Cactus League. Looking like he'll probably make team, as he he's risen his average close to .300.

Cookie looked pretty good today as well. Some problem keeping the speedy Giants baserunners under control, but was pretty effective on the mound.

I-Stew crushed that walk-off. Nothing like Cactus League late-inning drama!

The way I see it, they were just doing what they were told.

Sonic Tooth said...

...oh, in honor of Eric Byrnes in that photo with Todd Helton, i must quote the Offenders....
"Face down in the dirt."

TroutDog said...

I believe the next line is "cause, you're just dessert." But I could be completely wrong.

Sonic Tooth said...

i believe there to be several couplets.
one is "for what it's worth"

i think the one you are thinking of is "it's your just desserts"

TroutDog said...

Yeah, that sounds much better.

I guess Nix's back is sore after clubbing all of those hits yesterday. And Ubaldo with another rough start today...I'm starting to worry about the starting rotation...especially the 4 & 5 spots.
