I'm not sure who to expect to win this game. Both aces will be pitching and if Lincecum is on, he'll be difficult to face. Plus only one Rangers player has ever faced Lincecum in his career, and I have a tendency to believe in great pitching over great hitting.
But with Cliff Lee throwing for the Rangers, it's a bit of a toss up. Lee has been virtually untouchable this post season.
I'm excited to see what will happen, although I won't actually be able to watch it - state field hockey.

Life threw some curveballs my way and I'm scrambling to take care of things now. We shall see what happens.
In the meantime I would like to share this with you, a dear friend sent it to me to brighten my day and I hope it does the same for you.

I'd like to think I have pretty good style, but I'm not incredibly trend. I kinda do things my own way, while working a classic look with an eclectic flair (if that at all makes sense...). But my dear friend Larke is a fashion student and she just returned from New York for a magazine internship, and she invited me to attend a fashion show with her.
She went to fashion week while she was in new york (where she saw a designer that I recently fell in love with, WHIT) so she's pretty much an expert, but I'm a newbie. No clue what to wear or how to act. It should be interesting.
On a baseball-related side note, I'm not at all surprised with what happened yesterday. I think today's matchup will be interesting with Lincecum and Halladay facing off. I'm going with the Phillies and Halladay on this one. I'll take giants in game six though.
Happy day before Friday!

Can’t say I’m not happy about it! I think the Yankees will put up quite a fight against the Rangers today, but they’ve got CC pitching. Not that he was all that impressive in his last start, but the Yankees did manage a late-inning rally for the win.
With Teixeira out, it takes a lot of power and consistency away from the Yankees offense, plus he’s a gold glove first baseman.
I’m anxious to see what this game brings. I just don’t think they Yankees are just going to roll over and take a loss, the Rangers will have to fight for it. Despite lackluster pitching and Teixeira’s injury, the Yankees have the mentality of a championship team so they’ll keep fighting.

From weddings to birthdays to hipsters and baseball, this weekend had it all.
I took most of Monday off of work to have lunch with Janessa before she went back to Austin and she introduced me to Watercourse Foods, a delicious vegetarian restuarant in Uptown. This place was great from someone like me (you know, someone who doesn't eat meat) but it is great for meat eaters too.
It was super delicious! I had a veggie reuben sandwich with tomato coconut curry soup and quinoa salad. Loved it.
I'm pretty sure it was a hipster gathering place.
I love being able to discover new places in the city. I love Denver! Then I discovered they also own a pizza restaurant in Capitol Hill and I can't wait to go there because pizza is my fav.
I wish I had pictures to show you, but I haven't downloaded them from my camera yet... too busy trying to catch up on sleep.

This new little cafe opened up around our corporate campus and I decided to check it out for lunch. It was a very interesting experience.
Cafe 180 is a community kitchen. Here's the mission statement:
"CAFE 180, recognizing our universal appetite for delicious, nourishing food and social connectedness, is dedicated to eliminating hunger and social barriers associated with food by feeding all people regardless of their ability to pay, in a dignified and respectful manner"
First off, it was delicious. Great little atmosphere, my co-worker and I sat in the sun room with window open to the rest of Broadway. The pizza was delicious! Natural, organic, locally grown... Can't beat that.
You determine the amount you pay. If you can't pay then you can volunteer.
After a little internet research, I learned it's based off the model of the SAME Cafe in Denver and is involved in a little community of One World Everybody Eats. These community kitchens are starting to pop up around the country and even Panera owns one.
There are some really amazing people out there who are striving to make a positive impact in their communities.
Here's to spending the weekend running around in fabulous fall outfits! I will be enjoying as much warmth as I can before winter sets in.

Rangers all the way baby!
That’s the way I’ll be cheering this post-season. It will be interesting to see how the Rangers matchup again the Yankees. Talent-wise they should be pretty even, although I think I’d take the Rangers pitching over the Yankees. But the advantage that
I still like
As far as the Rangers/Rays matchup I got to see a pretty good game. David Price threw well, and most of the runs were allowed because or mental errors. The Rangers exploited those errors and played aggressively. Did anyone see Vladdy score from second on a ground out? I’ve never seen him run like that.
The Rays couldn’t produce any type of run support. The bats were doing much and Cliff Lee was dealing. He made a lot of those batters look like high school players. They didn’t know what to do… just swinging at everything and then watching third strikes.
Anyway I’m excited for the Championship Series to begin, which won’t be until Friday. Does anyone else have a problem with the amount of time they take between series? These guys play every single day during the summer, but then they need this much time between series???
The NLCS doesn’t even begin until Saturday?? I’m sure it’s about ratings but still, I’m annoyed.
Also, Ranger celebrate with Ginger Ale, that’s awesome. LOVE Josh Hamilton.

I'm predicting quite a battle between both of these teams. They both have a lot of talent and there will be two great pitchers toeing the rubber tonight.
This is what makes October baseball so great. It would be great to Texas move on and make it all the way to the World Series, given the management issues the team had during the first half of the season, plus who doesn't love Nolan Ryan.
Then there's the Rays, who are the saving grace of the AL East. They knocked the Yankees out of another AL East Championship and the Red Sox out of the post season completely. I would love to see the Rays to become perennial competitors, and challenge the AL East's deep pocket ownership who ruin the game for everyone else.
I can't wait to see what happens. I'm even skipping my class at the gym to be able to watch this game!

I hope everyone is having a good Monday and I hope you'll have a good week.

Every team I want to win is losing. Some due to bad calls, some due to bad play. It's sad.
I have sought solace in my non-sports related interests and would like to proclaim my love for Mondo on project runway. At first I liked him simply because he's from Denver, but I love his personal style and the clothes he designs!

I'm not cheering for any particular team, but I really don't want to see the Yankees or the Phillies in the World Series.
I'm a little sad that the Rays and the Rangers are facing of in the NLDS because I would be happy with either team advancing to the World Series... I love what the Rangers have done despite the issues in the front office, but I'm a sucker for David Price.
We'll have to see what happens.

I took this photo of the field at the last Rockies home game. (I regularaly take photos when I'm at games and send it to the rest of my family, to make them jealous).
And these are other random baseball field photos I took from this summer that I haven't deleted yet.
