First Elway & Now Manning!

OMG! OMG!! OMG!!! It’s Peyton Manning! Last Saturday at the Sky Sox!


He was probably there to see his good buddy Todd Helton…

Todd Helton is not pleased with our jokery.

Too bad Todd retired and wasn’t at Security Service Field at Mile High. But Elway and Manning both showing up for a game in the first month of the season? It seems SSF@MH is the IN place to be this year!

Best Mascot? Elway Says No!

Your Best of the Springs Best Sports Mascot!

Sox the Fox is this year’s Best Colorado Sports Mascot according to the Gazette’s Best of the Springs survey. Congrats Sox! It’s a well deserved honor, but I know one person who’d disagree with the choice:

It’s Broncos’ legend and infamous Sox the Fox hater John Elway!

John looks like he wants to be anywhere but in front of our lovable, giant rat.

Sox paid a visit to Mr. Elway during opening weekend and John looked less than pleased. Then, trying to impress a legend, Sox the Fox did his classic bit where he racks himself on the gate by the visitor’s dugout, and oh how Elway and friends got a sadistic chuckle out of that:

Sox fall 16-12 to the Express.
Hey! John! Look at me! I’m doing stuff!
Sox fall 16-12 to the Express.
Oh geez! Sox jobbered himself!

Elway laughs while his bud in the plum shirt is loving the sh*t out of Sox getting hurt.

As Sox crawls onto the dugout to die everyone enjoys a good laugh at his misfortune
(the sick bastards).

So there you have it. Sox the Fox rules! Except in the eyes of John Elway. Fine. Be that way. But the next time you come down we’re just going to get this gang to come extra-annoy you:

John Elway At The Baseball

Would you look who showed up at Security Service Field at Mile High on Saturday:

OMG! It’s John Elway!

He was there because his old college roommate at Stanford is Steve Buechele, the  Round Rock Express manager.

So, what’s the great John Elway do at a minor league baseball game you ask? You know, the usual, sit around all game eating copious amounts of sunflower seeds…

…drinking some High Quality H2O…

Water is just so damn refreshing.

…and checking his phone…

Nope. Says here we’re still losing the Super Bowl.

…and just shooting the shit with these two dudes (sorry. No idea who they are)

Sox fall 16-12 to the Express.
Yup. That’s John Elway. Just hanging out with a couple of his buds.
(foot and cap in foreground do not belong to his buds)

Round Rock defeated the Sky Sox 16-12 in a game that didn’t last over 4 hours. Hope you enjoyed the game John!
