Look Out National League, Here Come The Rockies!

My Rockies have been making things very interesting lately.  A few days ago, they beat the Giants in 14 innings after Spilly hit a walk off grand slam and last night, they beat the Dodgers in 10 innings.  It’s starting to feel like Rocktober around here. 

I’ve been doing my best to be a good big brother.  My little sister Stacy is pretty neat.  I decided to take her to her first baseball game earlier this month.  Here’s a picture of her.

I didn’t take it personally that she decided to sleep through most of the game.  She sleeps almost as much as my kitty Sydney.  I went ahead and enjoyed the game.

The weather has been perfect lately and we all kicked back to enjoy a beautiful sunset.

The Pirates didn’t put up much of a fight and the Rockies breezed to an 8-0 victory.

I didn’t want to miss any of the game and saved my sleeping for the ride home.

Last week, we got lucky and our friend Shawn gave us his tickets to see the Giants.  He’s got great seats down the first base line.  They are up nice and close.  I could even hear Todd Helton when he was on the field.

Baseball and animal crackers.  Life is good.

I gave Stacy my hat, but I think it might be a little big.  At least she managed to stay awake for part of the game.

The Rockies really made this a fun one.  They rallied from being behind 6-1 to winning the game 14-11.  It was awesome!

I also want to wish Mom a Happy Birthday!  She’s the best!
