Defeat Accepted

Man, the Red Sox were on. Lee said that he felt this was a mismatched World Series for sure. Baseball is a game of streaks, which the Rockies were definitely on, but the Red Sox are a much better team.

I will move on. I will not be so emotional about sports. *sigh*

Still Hopeful!

Ouch! That was a painful loss last night. Who abducted the Rockies and put that how-can-we-possibly-have-made-it-to-the-MLB-World-Series team in their place?

The Red Sox are hot, no doubt. Just wait until they have to play in Denver though. The elevation and temperature are a big factor, plus Coors Field has a gigantor outfield. We'll see if that affects the HR count.

Let's go ROCKIES! Bring back the stellar pitching staff!!

Here we go Rockies, Here we go...!!

World Series, game one in Boston today. I'm already excited. I'm eating my sunflower seeds and imagining what a great series it is going to be.

I like the Colorado Rockies. First of all, they're pretty close in proximity to me. Second of all, I remember when their team was started, around the same time that Denver International Airport was opened.

I was mad when they beat the Padres with the run in from Matt Holliday. He didn't even touch home plate!! There was an overhead camera angle that showed it pretty clearly. But I forgave him. He has been playing so well, he makes it look easy.

I'm also excited for Todd Helton (first base) because he has been in the majors for a long time, yet hadn't been in the playoffs until this season.

The Rockies are young, fresh and excited. Boston is a good team (wow, how they came back to beat the Indians! NICE!), but they're arrogant. They get careless and have to work hard to make up for it.

This is going to be a GREAT series! The Rockies have won 21 of their past 22 games. They swept the Padres, the Phillies, and the Diamondbacks in the post season. It's been an incredible run for them.

Home Sweet Home!

I moved in to an apartment over the weekend. I'm probably weird, but I've been experiencing a wide range of emotions over the whole thing. Bottom line, though, is it's a place of my own and I like it.

Last night was the first time I stayed over there. I had mentioned to my boyfriend, Lee, that I was nervous about the whole "being within earshot of other sex-having people" and "liking my sex not heard by strangers".

First night report: Neighbors next door had some mad sex between 2:30 am and 5:30 am. I'm positive there were at least 3 people involved. It was so funny and exciting! I was wide awake, with my ear to the wall. Oh yes. I listened.

How long is it going to amuse me, is what I wonder.
