Rockies bloom is off the Rose

DREW0912.gif

As Cubs fans so often say...there's always next year.

It's certainly not looking good for a Rocktober repeat. But stranger things have happened.
Still, isn't just great to be able to wander down to Coors field, grab a Rockies dog and enjoy a day at the ballpark? It's the little things, ya know.

So forget the upcoming off-season turmoil ahead ( the Holliday trade) and just enjoy the last gasp of summer. It will be winter soon enough.

    Tessie is the Royal Rooters rally cry
    Tessie is the tune they always sung
    Tessie echoed April through October nights
    After serenading Stahl, Dinneen and Young
    Tessie is a maiden with a sparkling eye
    Tessie is a maiden with a love
    She doesn't know the meaning of her sight
    She's got a comment full of love
    And sometimes when the game is on the line
    Tessie always carried them away
    Up the road from third base to Huntington
    The boys will always sing and sway

    Two! Three! Four!

    Tessie, Nuff Said McGreevey shouted
    We're not here to mess around
    Boston, you know we love you madly
    Hear the crowd roar to your sound
    Don't blame us if we ever doubt you
    You know we couldn't live without you
    Tessie, you are the only only only

    The Rooters showed up at the grounds one day
    They found their seats had all been sold
    McGreevey led the charge into the park
    Stormed the gates and put the game on hold
    The Rooters gave the other team a dreadful fright
    Boston's tenth man could not be wrong
    Up from third base to Huntington
    They'd sing another victory song

    Two! Three! Four!

    I agree, Drew. I'm a season ticket holder and will never give them up, no matter how bad the team is doing. It's just wonderful to go to the ballpark for a few hours, hang out with friends, and enjoy the game and the food. I have always said that the Rockies winning the game is just a bonus to the experience.

    Yeah, that pretty much sums it up.

    Have Hurdle and Apodaca been fired yet? If not why not?
