Since I grew up a childhood Brew Crew fan, I'm still in their corner most nights. However, nights like tonight I forget the fond memories of County Stadium and conversion van bench tail gate parties in what seemed like an endless parking lot and turn up the Brew Crew hate instead. We must forget Coop, Rollie, Gorman, Robin, and Ben O. We must forget the greatest homerun novelty event ever, as pictured above. This ain't no Pepsi Fan Club game and I ain't concerned about the two liters of soda we're bringing into the game (although Death Truck might be this evening). It's ironic now that I'm of drinking age, I will be rooting for the first time in person against the Brewers.
Chained Lightning will have to take the reigns this evening, as many of the regulars in these parts will be down at Coors. If all goes as planned, we'll be sitting in Death Truck's friend's sweet seats above the visiting dugout. If that doesn't pan out, we'll still be enjoying some seats I scored for free at the Rockies Dugout Store with the purchase of 4 packs of 2007 baseball cards. Not a bad little deal, actually. Worst-case, we get in a brawl with Brewers fans at Swanky's before the game and get hauled to detox. Here's to hoping we can celebrate a victory tonight outside the Big House.
