Batter, batter, swing.   Baseball season again — must be summer (ok, not quite…but it is May).  Snagged Rockies tickets via Groupon to Friday night’s game.  3 years in a row have watched BASEBALL at Coors Field – good streak to keep alive 🙂

Seemed fitting to invite my resident East Coast transplants to a Mets game.  Gotta say it really didn’t matter who the Rockies were playing.  Going to a ballpark is much more than the game – it’s about food, fun & sharing laughs.

Started with chili dogs & beer (Ash & Tom), followed by 2 bags of peanuts (lost the battle to Tom – 6 nuts short of success…lotta shelling & eating in a short amount of time – LOL>)…finishing off with cotton candy late in the 7th (Ash).

So how was the game?  FAAAANNNNNTASTIC!  Crushed the visiting New Yorkers 10-3.

Friday night in Denver, for the second night in a row the Rockies made quick work of a Met starter, this time Zach Wheeler as the Mets lose big 10-3.  

 

Wheeler lasted just 4 innings, allowing 7 hits, 7 runs, 6 earned walking 2 and striking out 1.  Trailing 7-1 in the top of the 6th Curtis Granderson got to Jorge De La Rose for a two run homer (2) to make it 7-3.  The Rockies made it a laugher as they got to Carlos Torres for 3 runs in his 2 innings of work to close the scoring. 

Sports, food & friends – bestest combo ever.

best·est  bestəst/  adjective   1. the very best.
