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!”
Congratulations to Matt Clark! By getting plunked by the Iowa Cubs’ Felipe Paulino in the bottom of the 4th inning of Monday’s 12-10 loss, you are the winner of the Hit Batsman of the Homestand!
Pete Orr, Sky Sox infielder and oh, SUPERVILLIAN! Yeah. That’s about right. Damn him and his hustle and stuff to help Canada beat the US 7-6 for the gold medal at the Pan Am Games in Toronto.
Congratulations to Canada. That was a hell of a game (and great job Pete! See you back with the Sox real soon).
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.
Huge congratulations go out to Colorado College great, Bill “Red” Hay, on his election into the Hockey Hall of Fame!
Whatcha doing Darth?
Oh nothing. You know, just scaring babies and stuff.
Last night Colorado Springs Sky Sox Director of Marketing and Promotions, Jon Eddy, went out to catch the ceremonial 1st pitch:
Most 1st pitches are on target, some are not, this one was in the dirt:
It’s in the dirt and with a whiff and a miss of the glove the ball made its way to the backstop:
When the ball gets by you guess what?
Yup. You get to chase it to the backstop!
Thanks for the entertainment Jon! (Not that we’d do any better ; )
“There comes a time when all the cosmic tumblers have clicked into place and the universe opens itself up a few seconds to show you what’s possible.” Terrance Mann, Field of Dreams
The cosmic tumblers click for me tonight – Bad posture? Check. Mouth-breathing? Check. Fondling a ball? Check. What we have here is perhaps the world’s most perfect picture. I rock!
And, and! I also got the headshot I’ve been chasing for over a month!
If you build it, they will DERP.
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!
This thing exists.
Just thought you should know.
Stupid April. As you can see below it’s been too cold for baseball.
Good news is it’s suppose to get warmer sometime before next winter.
Their hippies beat our hippies 12-8. Sox fall to 1-1 on the young season.
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!
