World Series Game 4

Well when you’re just happy to be there, it makes it hard to not be satisfied with just being there.  I think that’s what happened with the Rockies.  I hope they take this hard and come back next year with a sense of not just getting to the World Series, but winning it.

As for me, I was just happy they got there because I thought that next year would be the year they would do some damage in the NL.  That expectation just got raised by about 100%.

Great season Rox.  Thanks for the great memories.

O.K., time to start panicking.

World Series Game 2

At least the Rockies stopped the Red Sox offense.  Now they gotta start getting their own offense going.

With the next three at Coors Field it’s not time to start panicking yet….maybe time to get the paper bags out to stop the possible hyperventilating…but no panicking.

World Series Game 1

This is ugly, but that’s o.k.  Better to get this all out of the way now instead of saving a bad game for another pitcher.

I think it’s time for another beer, or three.

Tryin’ to get World Series Tix, part 2

Been on since noon and I’ll keep trying until I get a “yessir” or a “sorry bub”.

I let you know either way.

UPDATE:  Turns out I got the “sorry bub”.  I’m not that upset that I didn’t get tickets….UNLESS there turns out to be 10,000 Red Sox fans who got tickets online.

That would make me very angry.  The Rockies better pray that didn’t happen today.

Rockies have problems with World Series ticket sales

I guess the World Series tickets were a hot commodity.

The Rockies have suspended tickets sales after being overwhelmed by 8.5 million hits in an hour.

It sounds like there were a lot of very unhappy fans.  I wasn’t expecting to get tickets, but still….this is ridiculous.

As a Public Relations person, this will be a very interesting situation to keep an eye on.

Trying to get World Series Tix – The Liveblog edition

We’ll see how this turns out……

UPDATE: 10:05 a.m. and it’s not looking good.

UPDATE: 10:10 a.m. both Explorer and Firefox are going, but I’m not getting in. Will keep trying. I wish we could have sat outside for tickets. Not sure this idea was the greatest.

UPDATE: 10:20 a.m. and still in the cue to get to the server. Arrrrggggh! I wonder how many ticket scalpers have gotten through? I bet it’s a lot.

UPDATE: 10:30 a.m. got back to the please hold page. That could be good news or very bad news.

UPDATE: 10:42 a.m. still not getting any results. I’m just hoping that it’s real fans getting these tickets, but I’m not very optimistic.

UPDATE: 10:50 a.m. now my fingers are starting to hurt from all the refreshing. Depression is starting to set in.

UPDATE: 11:03 a.m. haven’t heard if they’re sold out or not, but I’m gonna keep trying until I get the “sold out” sign.

UPDATE: 11:15 a.m. now my explorer browser is freezing…nice. Still to confirmation on sold out tickets.

UPDATE: 11:25 a.m. news sites are saying tix are still available, but I’m not sure.

UPDATE:  12:48 p.m.  well this certainly explains why I was having so much trouble.  Egad!!!!

Broncos v Steelers

I’m at the game but not very interested. I’m watching baseball and hockey….I can’t believe I just typed that but it’s true….anyway it’s 7 – 0 Steelers. Let’s see if the Broncos show some fight.

UPDATE: Oh my God a touchdown!!!!! 15 yards to Brandon Stokley. Wow, I’m in shock, not Rockies win the pennant shock , but shock none the less.

UPDATE: With :10 seconds left in the first quarter…the Broncos aren’t behind. That’s a win in my book. 7-7 end of one.

UPDATE: Still 7 – 7 in the second quarter. There have been some interceptions and some tackles, but the big news is the Broncos are still NOT losing.

UPDATE: I don’t know who peed in the Broncos water bottles but they just took the lead. I can’t believe it, and neither can the 20,000 Steeler fans in attendance. Wow, Broncos up 14 – 7.

UPDATE: Dumervil gets the sack and Crowder picks up the fumble? Well he does and takes it to the house. 21-7 Broncos. Too bad the game goes 4 quarters instead of 2.

UPDATE: Is it just me or does Mike Tomlin look like Omar Epps? Just Sayin’.

UPDATE: Don’t know what happened but the Denver defense looks fired up. You don’t suppose they didn’t like all that extra running the last two weeks? They look inspired. Nice to see. Pittsburgh trying a field goal with :03 seconds left. And it’s no good. Dre Bly returns it…for nothing. End of the first half Denver 21 and Pittsburgh 3. Time for some more ice cream.

UPDATE: Start of the second half and the Broncos are still winning. I repeat, the Broncos are still winning.

UPDATE: The Steelers score and the optimism of every Bronco fan goes just a bit dimmer.

UPDATE: Broncos driving but Cutler…FUMBLES!!! Lucky to get that one back.

UPDATE: A nice catch by Stokley for a first down. Stokley and Marshall have both had nice games so far. The Broncos need to punch it in for a touchdown this drive….Marshall makes a nice effort and gets it down to the 1.

UPDATE: Cutler throws another 1 yard TD to a tight end to make the score 28 – 14. All the Steeler fans weren’t expecting this….and neither were the Broncos fans to tell the truth.

UPDATE: Steelers score again…what is this Boise State v Nevada? 28 – 21 Broncos still lead.

UPDATE: It’s starting to snow. Yea!!!!

UPDATE: Steelers driving with 5 minutes left to play. Denver can’t seem to stop them. This could be key.

UPDATE: Time to go downstairs. Talk later.

UPDATE:  Well that was lucky, and exciting.  A good win against a quality opponent…just what the Broncos needed.
