Running out of steam here (unless anyone can handle anymore pics of mini-ST...)
So here is one final pic from the "bus stop" series. Do note that I'm standing pretty much in the middle of 38th Avenue, most likely during rush hour, and was lucky enough to not get clipped by some weird Ford dually custom pickup with a huge Nike swoosh decal on the rear window.
(this was late last season, 01 September. DLR dominated the Mets, a Rockies' winner on the way to the playoffs)

In honour of 30PackThief. Someone who once had an active part in making this blog great, and actually did attend quite a few games back in the day...but now?
Too busy raising chillun's? Too busy playing hockey?
I can't really say for sure. I only know he'll never see this post depicting his jovial visage at a long-past Rockies game...because he's too busy doing something or other. Something most likely responsible. (except when he's drinking stumpy Sessions brews w/TD and me)
Good for you, my man. I shed a tear at our loss.

"I don't know, Edna. This rain-out bullshit is a world class drag. Let's head over to Swanky's."

Another Paws at the Park pic. Not pictured, a frightened Hank. Turns out dogs are more like humans than we ever imagined...they don't like Dinger either.

Man, you guys really love that statue.

Fat Cub fans. They can be rampant.

Coupla mini's (ST/YB) shading toward the right field foul line. I do hope the Rockies' Rookies' "swarm the field" day this year is as fun as '09.

"The fuck you looking at? Ain't you never seen nerds at a baseball game?"

One guy wondering why the hell that asshole is taking his picture, the other blissfully enjoying the Voices of Summer on his radio headphones as he takes in the game.

This was a late season 2008 September 06, complete game shut-out loss to Roy Oswalt and the Astros. Francis took the loss 2-0. Between this date and today, I believe he has pitched one other game for the Rockies.

Great old shitty cell phone photo. Backstory here is TD, Ol' Reichy, and myself went to an afternoon weekend game, and had the misfortune of sitting behind the most obnoxious fat, tattooed, mulleted, (and lesbian?) group. Seriously not one iota of attention paid to the game. Loud yammering, waving to people in other sections, standing up. The worst.
Now I'm not always the most saintly, respectable fan, but this was a bit much and we decided to leave for different seats. The place was pretty full so we just opted for some new seats that were at best similar in quality but more likely were worse. An usher busted us for "sneaking" into the new seats. I pitched a little fit about our other seats are better than these (showed him our non-Rockpile tix) and that he should concern himself with the mulleted riff-raff a few sections over.

If you careen through the BSB annals of Coors Field/Rockies memories of the past couple years and you ponder what are the most lasting? The most vital..?.
I present you this disdainful looking visage of Young Tato.
"one wonders, how much more vital could a shot of someone at Coors Field be?" And the answer is none. None more vital.
I know the Rockies lost this game. I don't even need to check baseball-reference.com . The look of utter disgust provides more information than a newspaper boxscore ever could.

Things look pretty dire for the young Rockies' Rookie here....but actually 6packthief is just plain tuckered out and taking himself a little nappy-poo.
30pack seems amused but that little feller is dead-weight waiting for the Coors Field scamper. Not sure I would show such patience and fortitude with a Rockies' Rookies member getting drowsy at such a key moment.
C'MON! You're about to get to run around on the BASEBALL FIELD. Look alive!

Mas images from Paws at the Park '07. Damn those hounds were greedy for the suds. (or just looking for some agua from the portable dog bottle thingy I see on the bleachers)

The photo is revealing from a Sammy standpoint, how "un-grey" his facial fur is in these photos. Damn, 3 years take their toll on an orange/brown faced basset.

Not sure who the Rockies were playing, and am not going to do any investigating either. Rather simply, it's just forever known as the 2009 "High/Low" game. It was a GNO game that saw me picked to make an idiot of myself on the jumbotron. Apparently Lauren sees something in a goofy hat to single me out for selection. Thank god, I never got on Card Sharks....I would have most certainly sucked at that too.
