Rocktober Continues in Colorado

Growing up in New Jersey in the 70s and 80s, I was fortunate to grow up listening 102.7 WNEW-FM on the radio. You know, the thing we listened to before we had satellite radio? I am sure you listened once or twice, no?

Anyway, legendary disc jockey Scott Muni used to talk about all the great concerts that would go on in the month of Rocktober. But nothing that used to come to the Tri-State Area can top what is going on in the Rocky Mountains right now with the Colorado Rockies.

Have you seen the last three weeks of the NL playoffs? They have won 20 of 21 games and haven't lost a playoff game. As they proved last night, neither rain nor sleet nor dead of night will stop the Rocks from making their first ever World Series.

Woody Paige of the Denver Post writes about what one more win will mean to everyone in Colorado. Dave Krieger of the Rocky Mountain News talks about this historic run the Rocks are on.

Last night the hero was Yorvit Torrealba, the catcher for the Rocks, but the double play ball was just as big a hero for them last night. The first three innings of the game, they had three double plays. Just insane.

Actually, I think the grounds crew at Coors Field are just as valuable as anyone. I am not sure how they got through that game without anyone slipping and falling to change the course of the game. Weather was a mess and those fans are nuts to sit there, but I understand them.

This just in, Tom Brady is pretty good. Imagine if he had any wide receivers over the beginning of his career?

George Steinbrenner is stepping back from control of the Yankees and giving his kids the power to make decisions. Let me tell you this, I believe that George can do that as much as I believe that Elvis is living in Nashville.
