Why are there so many songs about rainbows? Hell, I don’t know. Did that damn singing frog mention gold and leprechauns? That would be a decent reason for a song about rainbows. Let’s just say he was singing about last night’s 7-1 Sky Sox victory over the Reno Aces, or more accurately, about the 1:31 rain delay in the top of the 4th inning that was just chock full of rainbows, and lightning, and talk of pots-o-gold & leprechauns, and stuff.
Michael Reed says, “Top o’ the mornin’ to ya! And stay away from me Lucky Charms!”
BEHOLD! It’s Corey Seager of the Oklahoma City Dodgers! The #1 prospect in all of minor league baseball! And he’s, um, hmm, doing “something” with his right hand while wearing a mitten on his left hand.
Sweet Jebus! Won’t someone please think of the children.
The Sky Sox are back in town starting tonight as they take on the Sacramento River Cats. Tyler Thornburg on the hill for the Sox. Game time is 705pm.
After the game there will be a ’80’s Hair Metal Band Firework Extravaganza! Where members of Poison and Warrant will take the field and have a duel to the death armed only with Roman candles and bottle rockets. THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE!
Our New Sox, your BrewSox, won their opener 7-5 over the Nashville Sounds yesterday in the torquing east wind swept, frozen confines of Security Service Field at Mile High. 1-0! Yeah team!
Here’s kind of what happened:
AND! And there was a battle of Wolf-People!
It got hairy in the 8th & 9th as the Sounds clawed back 3 runs to make it close, but the New Sox hung on for the win.
Tonight at 635pm it’s John Ely vs Barry Zito (who was great on the Chris Isaak Show, SE3EP3, in 2004. Watch it! Oh, YOU CAN’T BECAUSE SOME BASTARDS WON’T ALLOW IT OUT ON DVD, OR NETFLIX, OR ANYTHING! OH, HOW I HATE THEM BASTARDS!). Sorry. I really liked that show. To make it up to you here’s a picture of a little man on a baseball, or a normal man on a giant baseball. Enjoy!
Today is Opening Day of the 2015 Pacific Coast League season for the new look Colorado Springs Sky Sox! The Rockies prospects are gone, replaced by some future Brewers we hope can help make us forget 2014’s 54-90 clinic in indifference and terrible baseball. Go Sky Sox! Go Brewers! Yeah baseball!
