Hey. Why the hostility DT?
Rox took this late '09 season game against the Mets. A full on Guys Night Out affair. DLR with the W.

Not exactly a picture from Coors Field. This is one from my "bus stop" series.
This, as is most of them, is entitled "Waiting for the 38" honor of the bus line that transports me to nearly every game I've attended over the past ~7 years.

kidz get crazy. rockies rookies taking full advantage of the warning track. we got little 'uns from the young bear, germplayer, sonic tooth, and 30packthief broods loose somewhere in this shot. i gotta say, as an old person out running with the (young) bulls during these things, i freaking love it. being anywhere on a MLB diamond is pretty cool.
Rockies kicked the Dodgers' ass 10-4 in the game that lead to this kiddie chaos (all boasting aside, they were 6-11 at this point). It was a nice step in the '09 turnaround. Major step yet to come. Hurdle getting canned.

Sort of a Rockies crazed mini-ST on the loose in the Coors Left field playground. I believe this is the promised land for the 6 and under set.
Based on the western sky I think this was the night I finally broke down and bought one of those "If my agnostic concept of a creator isn't a Rockies fan, why are sunsets purple?" bumper sticker for my truck.

I don't mind that sight. Stadium beer shuttling coming around the bend, thanks TD.
Not able to place this one totally. It's from a late May '08 Mets weekend game...back in the old season ticket seats. Rockies did take 2 of 3...but am not sure if we saw Francis' Saturday loss or Cook's Sunday win.

Here's one that won't mean anything to anyone.
Consider this my so-long tribute to BigHitYorvit (dude was pretty engaging with the crowd, especially since he wasn't in the lineup).
An August 2008 game against the D-Backs that I made the odd decision to trek down solo on a Tuesday night and buy a single ticket. Wound up getting a pretty damn nice seat right behind the dugout for like $15 bucks. Probably aided by the eventuality that there would be no miracle run. No playoffs.
This game (like many in 2008) was a loss...regardless of the fact that the Magnificent was on the hill.
I'm pretty sure I was wearing shorts with black socks and sandals and a hat with tons of Rockies pins on it and a too-small Walker jersey and nursed a diet-Pepsi and kept meticulous score in a program and had head phones on listening to the Voices of Summer and may have even splurged for a tray of nachos or some other wild, decadent food item.
No come to think of it, I bought my normal array of stadium brews and shuttled in a bag of nuts. Nerdy? sure. That Nerdy? hell no.

A real favorite of mine.
Post-game, Blake St. early 2008 (boy did that season suck eventually though...) Rockies and Cookie take down the Cubs. This feisty Cubs fan didn't care for my photo snapping while I was en route to Swanky's. Her reaction was more volatile post-photo snappage if I recall, which is not captured. I didn't give a shit.
The fat Cubs fan lady and her fat Cubs fan son, were non-plussed. I guess a lot of stadium hot dogs, nachos, tor-na-doughs, and dippin' dots will make you fairly docile, even in the face of defeat and obnoxious photo taking. Ha!

I guess you're supposed to wear a T-shirt under your baseball jersey....
A sunny Sunday June series sweep was unfolding against the Pirates here.

A nice snacking shot of 6PackThief and MiniST from the '09 Labor Day game against the Reds. (Note the copious amounts of Pepperidge Farm Goldfish on the ground....6PT was spilling those things at a torrid pace). You know it was another Rockies winner....! (this was a huge 4 game home sweep of the Red Legs in fact.)
Post-game included a rather drunken BBQ at 30Pack's.
The night before (for some) was an out of hand Red Rocks ween show.
I got a feeling I didn't like going to work Tuesday the 8th.

Well. This is a weird one, that will only bring back memories to a few. Another Cubs game, this one last season, a Friday nighter. (shit-ass seats are a fairly good indicator that a team like the Cubs were in town)
DeathTruck, A-Pup, and I had these nosebleeds up the first base side. What I tried to capture was this nutty little fucker who was going apeshit, dancing and cheering on the home team that was sitting next to us. He ruled.
A Blackberry is not a good camera sometimes. The kid is just a blur. He was pretty busy.
This was another Rockies' winner by the way. 6-2. The Amazing Ubaldo with the W.

Paws at the Park '07. 2 hounds and 1 cattle dog....loving a Rockies' thrilling victory over the Padres. Jesus Christ, my Aramark stadium beer totals at this game were through the roof, Sammy-dog is such a brew mooch.
Bring this promotion back!!!

Converse Chuck Taylor's enjoy taking in a ballgame, this is from a Giants game back in September '08. Weird extra inning affair where Grilli got the win I believe...(I know, hard to fathom) Lincecum and Livan H. were the starters...

YB makes like Spider Man and robs a potential homerun....miniST roving over from left field, apparently to make sure that he's got this one.
I like that scoreboard....Dodgers lose! Dodgers lose!

Pot-bellied fella observed at a Cub's game from a few years ago....he apparently likes oranges. Bit of a surprise really.
