I’m in love…

…with Denver, Colorado, USA.

Oh my Lord.

First, let me address the Astros: I understand the Randy Wolf thing now, thanks to Richard Justice.  Either we have a no. 5 starter for next year, or we get prospects if he leaves.  But I do NOT understand the LaTroy Hawkins thing.  I hate him because he threw at Luke Scott.  Sure, he was a Rockie, but NOBODY THROWS AT LUKE SCOTT.  NOBODY.

Then the rest of the world: Pudge, wtf?!  Farnsy cried?  Ken Griffey, double wtf?  And MANNY TO LOS ANGELES?  CRAPOLA ON A STICK.

Now to Denver:

First of all, I love the Rox.  I was so happy to be able to listen to the games (couldn’t watch because we were going to dinner with family all over the place).

But aside from just their MLB team, I love the city.  Downtown was so much fun.  D’Deli in Golden was fantastic, and Avenue Grill on 17th is my new favorite restaurant.  Ted’s Montana Grill in Littleton was also really good.

Visited the Mint, the school (love it! must go there), the geology museum, and the Zoo.  But most importantly, I went on a tour of COORS FIELD:

En route to the clubhouse.  Yeah, I guess I kinda sorta had “credentials.”

The “Rockies Road” sign.  Fare thee well, beautiful Coors Field, until we meet again next year.

Really.  I loved it.  Loved the school.  Loved the city.  The people weren’t particularly nice, but they were nicer than in California.

More about actual baseball later.

Mwah.
