Opening Day Year 4

April 2, 2011

It’s hard to believe yesterday was my 4th year in a row of going to Rockies Opening Day.  Who am I and when did I start liking sports baseball (I’m still not on board with that whole football thing.  Or golf, or hockey, or soccer…)?

I swear it was just coincidence that I started becoming a real Rockies fan the same year they went to the World Series (I went to game 4 and yes I’m bragging).

And finally, 2011

Do we look different?  I’m minus a nose ring, a tongue ring and 4 inches of dark red hair, so I’d say yes.

It was a long long day.  We got to the park around 11:30 and didn’t get back till 7!

Joey apparently can’t make up his mind on where he wants his season ticket seats to be.  I feel like we move every year.  This year we’re right up against the bullpen (aka the place where the pitchers warm up).

Which turned out to be really fun. 

Joey can watch his favorite player, catcher Chris Iannetta.

And I can take countless pictures of our fabulous pitcher, Ubaldo Jimenez.  He threw a no hitter last year and that’s a big deal for those of you who didn’t know Smile

And the sun finally reached us by the 7th inning and it got really hot.  Note how the little old lady next to me is in a sweatshirt.

Also note that fresh looking new hat Joey has.  Compliments of me – an early birthday present Smile

The game went into extra innings (hence the late ending time) and we unfortunately lost in the 11th, 7-6.  Oh well, there’s always tomorrow.  And I’ll be there.  Although I promise not to bore you with another baseball heavy post.

Later, loves!

    Sounds like a lot of fun. 🙂 I’ve never been to a baseball game but I have been to a couple football games and really liked going to those.

    Girl, you’re so pretty! You look so much older now than you do in the previous years pictures for some reason (well, aside from the fact that you ARE older)!
    Looks like you had a great time 😀

    Your gorgeous girl! Looks like fun, when I was with my boyfriend of 6 years i went from hating certain sports to actually being a fan and watching them when he wasn’t even here — very weird for me! ha ha
