The Rainbow Connection

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.

Hey! Look! It’s the end of the rainbow!
And it’s landing right in the middle of Security Service Field at Mile High!

The end of the rainbow means a pots-o-gold & leprechauns!
I think I see a leprechaun, but that doesn’t look like a pot-o-gold.
That looks like a big metal tube.

Stupid metal tubes. They can’t hold a candle to an inanimate carbon rod.
And that’s no leprechaun! It’s Sox outfielder Michael Reed!
He only looks like a leprechaun because he has a red beard.

Michael Reed says, “Top o’ the mornin’ to ya! And stay away from me Lucky Charms!”

 

A Salute to Binary Code!

Earlier this season, June 15th to exact, the Sky Sox and Salt Lake Bees held their Salute to Binary Code Night:

“I, for one, welcome our new insect overlords” read the message on the
Security Service Field at Mile High scoreboard.

Alas, no “insect overlords” showed up to be “welcomed” and the crowd went home disappointed. They were able to see the Inanimate Carbon Rod, so that perked them up a tad before leaving.
