The Rockies in the World Series

Most of you out there know that baseball's biggest contest is happening right now. Our town's team, the Colorado Rockies, is vying for the win. Actually, they are about to die and blow away. Their performance prior to the final World Series games was amazing - they won 21 out of 22 games! But they have done incredibly badly in the first 3 games. (It's a best 4 out of 7 game series.)

Tonight is probably their last game.

It would have been fun to go to one of the games, even if the Rockies lost, but tickets are just too durn expensive: anywhere from $200 to $2000 per ticket.

Having said that, I found this amusing listing in craigslist: "I have 2 rockpile seats I am GIVING AWAY for tonight's Game 4. I am sickened by how the Rockies have played and don't care anymore. I can meet you by the stadium one hour before first pitch. The person who convinces me most will get the tickets. Call me at..."

Update: they lost game four.

I picked the occasion of the Rockies making the World Series to become a temporary fan - two weeks too late to see them shine, apparently!
