What with all the doom and gloom in the news lately I thought it might be nice to focus on something positive for a change. Like the fact that it is May 10th and the Colorado Rockies are alone in first place in their division this year!!!!!
Yay!!!!! I might actually get to wear my Rockies gear past June 1st this season!!!!!
Usually by mid-May – with one a couple of rare exceptions – the Rockies are already mathematically eliminated from post-season play. No really, I’m not exaggerating.
Of course, if the Rockies remain in contention it is going to infringe on my pre-season prepping for the football season (Dallas Cowboys, UCLA and North Dakota State) in late July and the next hockey season (Los Angeles Kings) and yes I know the Stanley Cup playoffs for this year are still going but as long as a Canadian team doesn’t win, I don’t care – more on that in a later post.
Basketball at every level is dead to me and has been since David Stern let the Pistons in the late 1980s transform the game from its original form into legalized street rioting.
So for now, I’ll be enjoying the Rockies early success and looking forward to a game in June when I get to watch them play the Dodgers in person. I’m hoping to purchase the same two seats I once owned as a season ticket holder in 1989 but we’ll have tom wait and see what happens.
So, who’s your favorite team – any sport and yes I’ll allow basketball (LA Lakers & UCLA are mine) – and how do you think they are/will be doing?
And speaking of sports, I’ve written a couple of historical sports non-fiction titles, in case you like to read about sports back in
