wah wah wah - "8 day layoff", "green monster", wah wah.
I was driving up the mountain from Denver airport last night during the game. Was switching the XM between the Boston (WEEI) home coverage, the Colorado (KOA) home coverage, and the ESPN national coverage. During one of the blowout innings (RBI doubles after RBI doubles), the Rockies announcer was practically crying about how unfair it was that there was some kind of divot or dip in left field and that's why the ball took a bad hop and the outfielder couldn't get get it in time to stop another run scoring.
Welcome to the Big Leagues, boys. Real men don't blame the ballpark.
Given the NL rules home-field advantage for the 3 games in Denver, maybe the Rockies will manage to win one of the first two, to avoid a total sweep.
Edit: Check out this pathetic attack on Fenway
by Rocky Mountain News columnist Bernie Lincicome.
|Coloradans may not be able to appreciate the local fascination for this analog woodpile, having a much more digital Fenway of their own named after a beer but with more comfortable seats and better food, if no more convenient or cheaper parking.
Yeah, brag about the much more "digital" of Coors Field. Rockies can't even manage to sell tickets
, yeah that's digital. Denver now has a second IT meltdown for the ages to add to the business and computer science case studies of the DIA baggage software debacle. At least the Sox know how to sell tickets to the World Series. Oh yeah, they know how to play in one too.
Rockies blamed the ticket sales issue on a "malicious attack". I guess that's what they'll call last night's game too.
Oh yeah, and that same announcer last night, when it was "only" 6-1 with several innings left, was talking about "The Rockies will try to even it up tomorrow night" as if they had already lost. If their paid mouthpieces give up on them with almost half a game left and an attainable score to settle, what does that say about them?
Sock the Rox!
