For the first time in the history of our great state, record quantities of Colorado Rockies team memorabilia have been bought by die-hard fans that, well, really didn’t know much about the Rockies season 6-8 weeks ago. But, dude, they’re all about the Rockies now. Because they’re die-hard.
No, no, wait – Rock-hard!
I suppose that fair weather fan counts as much as any other fan, at least until you lose.
Now, now, calm down, oh Rockies die-hards of the last 72 hours or so, I’m happy for them that they swept the Diamondbacks and have made their way into the World Series. Bully for them; I’m sure they’ve earned it.
I just don’t much care about baseball, and won’t pretend like I do.
So, for those of you who have kept up with the Rockies, win or lose, all season long, I wish you and your team well.
For the rest of you, on behalf of Rockies gear manufacturers everywhere, thank you for your temporary love of the game.
