Rockies Win 6-5 in Bottom of 9th

Went to the Rockies / Giants game last night. The Colorado Rockies are coming on strong and posted at 6-5, ninth inning win. A beautiful Colorado evening with ten other friends including my son Jeff and grandson Gentry. Bob Swenson had the foresight to by Right Field seats a couple of months ago, with the hopes one of us would catch a Barry Bonds home run but the biggest hit he got was a center field double. Gentry was on the big screen Jumbotron while dancing on his dad's lap in the 8th inning. It was really cute!

Baseball is called "America's pastime" rather than "America's sport" and to those who attend games but are not diehard fans, baseball is a social game for the fans. Its a chance to be together and talk and joke and root for the home team and walk around the stadium, grab a hotdog, peanuts and Cracker Jacks, run into friends, etc.
