Rocktober


I figured I'd wait for Rocktober to end before posting my pictures from the recent playoff run by the Colorado Rockies. Denver as been clad in Purple and White since late september, and it has been a lot of fun. While my heart will forever belong to the green and gold, we've been going to Rockies games since we moved here, and have become fans of them too.


My school about 6 or 7 blocks from Coors Field, so decided to walk down to a rally they had in hopes of winning the tiebreaker game to get into the playoffs. There were A LOT of people there.

This is Coors Field. It is the best place I've ever been to see a game.


They had a band playing and tossing out t-shirts (one of which Kristie now sleeps in), and giving away prizes. Dinger, the Rockies mascot, is in the middle of the picture. Dinger is a adolescent purple dinosaur of questionable gender. Dinger sucks, and needs to go away forever. This is Dinger:

This is my suggestion for his/her replacement:


So, the Rockies got into the playoffs and eventually won the National League Pennant before losing in the World Series. Kristie and I were lucky enough to get tickets to the game 4 of the NL Championship Series, when they swept the D'backs. It was awesome.

Scott and Kristie during the game. The guy next to Kristie brought his own whiskey, and was very drunk. His buddy ended up pouring beer on his head during the game, and after it was over, they got into a fight. Fun Stuff all around.

The celebration when the Rockies won thier way into the series.

I took this video about 10 minutes after the final out. It was as loud a place as I've ever been.

All in all it was a fun ride, and hopefully it'll happen again next year, and the A's or Rockies will win it all.

Ok, here goes. Just for the record I don't really know how to post except to do it as anonymous. I love it that you and Kristie do adventurous things like actually go places and see things. We seem to be stuck in the rut of movie night or out to dinner and don't really venture out do something else. Any suggestions? Please keep your suggestions g rated and remember that we are getting up there in age. And for the record, I didn't kill the pets. They all chose to leave due to lack of care and attention on the part of the children. The only one that we really "took care of" was Foxy Lady and now that you are mature enough to handle it the truth is she went to the pound not to an nice new home. So there you have it the ugly truth. And dad and I both cried over it but it was either Foxy or me and I chose to stay despite the wishes of all my children to have me leave and keep the dog.
