The night started out like any other, show up early to hang with your friends, catch BP, and then head over to get graphs. The only thing that was different about this night was the weather. While waiting to go inside I met up with Gary X and saw Jersey Geoff. Geoff and I were wearing Pacheco’s jerseys, Geoff with number 58 (rookie number) and me with 22 (current number).
We all chatted but all recognized that the weather did not look good and just hoped that we could get enough decent weather to get some BP in.
As we walked in the crack of the bat and strikes of the lightning were simultaneous, the sky was dark and the lights were on, and the Rockies were taking batting practice. After Monday I would say that the Rockies needed all the help and practice possible. This really did remind me of the Natural and knew that this game was going to be special.
Thanks to Gary X I received my first batting practice ball of the season. Also during batting practice Jhoulys Chacin was nice enough to come over and sign two cards for me and some for Gary X. Juan Nicasio also came over and signed his Rookie card. Gary X is the man; he is able to speak certain things in Spanish so the players would respond to him which really helps us when getting graphs. I think I might take some Spanish lessons from him!
I also ran into my old friend from college David so what is up David thanks for saying Hey!
During the middle of batting practice it started to poor on us and they put the tarp on the field. I thought this is going to be a great game and might be delayed. I decided to head up to the concourse and head over to the dugout so when the rain stopped I could go down to get some graphs.
The Rockies started a new thing this season where you can go buy game worn/used memorabilia. On Monday (thanks to Jersey Geoff who bought Pacheco’s) I scored a Rex Brothers Opening Day locker tag. I picked that up but while I was waiting I ran into a guy who I had seen around at Fan Fest and around the stadium, his name Smitty! We started to talk and an introduction turned into a long conversation. Smitty and I decided to head down to the wall where Gary X had snagged a great spot.
As we stood there waiting for the players to come out they uncovered the field and started to prep it for first pitch. First player to come out was Todd. In all the years that I have tried to get autographs, this was the first time I ever saw Todd Helton come to the wall. I didn’t go to get his because everyone swarmed him! Smitty and I stayed put and when Cuddyer came out he noticed Smitty so came over and signed.
Smitty was working on Cuddyer’s internet connection earlier in the day and talked with him, so Smitty had the connection with Cuddy at the game! Thanks Smitty and thanks Cuddy for signing!
We also saw Marc Stout at the game first time i have seen him in a few weeks. Marc is my workout buddy so we have seen each alot since Janurary.
I also have to give a shout out to Bullpen Coach Jim Wright, you may be reading this but thank you for taking my card and checking this out!
Not a lot of other players signed but JP did get a chance to stop and take a picture with his number 1 fan! Thanks JP!
I had to go make my rounds and saw my friends from high school. Also saw Lincecum (Jenn) who I work with at the game, she is a Giants fan so I got her this Buster Posey jersey for her Birthday! As I was talking to Jenn it started to rain yet again, but cleared up really fast! The crowd went from mad to happy in a matter of minutes! It was awesome (wish I would have recorded it)!
I took a lot more pictures this game which is hard to get use to but its slowly coming about.
This game was an AMAZING GAME! This is how the team should be playing all the time! Guthrie pitched a beauty until he had a hiccup in the 4th inning and gave up a lot of runs, hey it happens right! Look at Verlander who pitched great and ended up losing the game in the 9th inning.
The good thing about the Rockies though is it they had run support last night!
We give up a few runs then we get them back in the next inning. It was so exciting to be there because when we scored seven runs in the fifth it was like we were unstoppable. The Giants bullpen seriously crumbled around the Rockies hitters, it was awesome and the Mile High Magic was back at Coors Field!
After the game we scurried down to the wall to get Rex Brothers Autograph on his name plate, he was more than willing to sign it for me! Thank you so much Rex!
We just noticed this tonight, that Coors Field now have the racing Comfort Dental mascots.
That was the end of the night for me after a long day at work and school then experiencing the comeback, it truly was an amazing day and well worth the tiredness today! I think that is where I’m going to end it, it’s a wrap and that was the Take From 20th and Blake!
Just wanted to thank everyone who has taken the time to read this and who is spreading the word, slowly getting more readers everyday!
