Rockies manager Walt Weiss held a closed door team meeting before last night’s game against the Diamondbacks. He emphasized to the team that it wasn’t their effort that was the problem, but a lack of execution. Here’s our guess for how it went (NSFW language):
The pep-talk seemed to work with the team for 2.5 innings. They jumped out to a 3-1 lead, but crapped the bed after that. De La Rosa gave up a 3 run bomb to Mark Trumbo in the bottom of the 3rd, the bullpen, Kahnle and Masset gave up 10 runs in 2 innings of work, including a 9 run 8th to put the game away. So much for inspirational speeches.
Because he’s the hero Colorado Springs deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So, we’ll hunt him, because he can take it. Because he’s not our hero. He’s a silent guardian. A watchful protector. He’s Ben Paulsen.
Lose the beard, sport the ‘stache and this crap writes itself. Thanks Ben!
Revenge game! Broncos host the Seahawks tonight at Mile High hoping to redeem themselves for that 43-8 thumping in Super Bowl 48 (not really. It’s just a shitty preseason game that injects more cash into the owner’s pockets while not having to pay the players. Manning plays a series. Are the tickets priced accordingly? Nope. Full-price suckers! It’s like watching the future of the Arena League on a full-sized field!).
Anyhoo…Game is on KKTV 11 starting at 700pm. Ron Zappolo and John Lynch have the call. Here’s something that’s more entertaining that tonight will be:
