I'm not sure how many of you are aware of this or not, but the Rockies are playing incredibly well right now, and I am so flipping excited about it!!!
They have a strong lead on the wildcard and are creeping up on the beloved Los Angeles Dodger. I loved 2007 and the Rockies' success but I wasn't in Denver to enjoy it, this year I am. I believe that super stoked is the proper word to describe my excitement level.
I just watched Garrett Atkins homer for the go-ahead-run against the Dodgers.
Today I filled out my request for playoff tickets too.
The Rockies have been flat out amazing since May, and I mean amazing. They have worked hard to get where they are now, and for those of you who have missed it, read this.
That article from the Denver Post comes from the Rockies 14 inning win against the Giants to come within three games of the Dodgers. A WALKOFF GRAND SLAM, even people who don't love baseball have to appreciate that.
Eric Young Jr. made his ML debut tonight too, it was cool to see his dad cheering for him when he got his first hit.
