Go Rockies!

So, guess where my wh and second son are tonight??

There was no earthly force that would keep them from going to see the Rockies.

The five and a half hour commute home my husband will have to make after the game? No problem. It is understood that world series potential comes before any notion of sleep.

The fact that the line for tickets started early this morning, with men bearing large cups of coffee, coolers full of sandwiches, and campchairs? No biggie. Kevvy gladly stood in line for 31/2 hours this afternoon to get the only tickets to be had, in the Rockpile, $4 seats in the nosebleed section where all the real fans sit, anyway.

It's eleven games in a row now that our team has won, and I'm told (have been told by three different males in my family today) that they have a shot at the playoffs. If God watches baseball, we can't help but think he'll be rooting for our Rockies tonight. We may be biased, but we think we've got the nicest bunch of guys in the sport.

Well, the Dbacks beat them tonight, but only 4-2. It ain't over til it's over! - and that's not until after the LAST game. Thanks for posting the link to the article about the Christianity of the team. I never knew that about them. Such a rarity these days!

Yes, isn't that a neat thing to know about them? One way or another, you feel good about 'em. (Is this Ellen G from Denver, by chance??)
