Some people might spend their Father's Day with their children. We didn't. Can you guess what we did?
We were invited to the Rockies game long before we realized that it was Father's Day. All we knew was that it was Walt Weiss Bobble head Day. Thankfully, we have some pretty awesome friends who offered to watch our children. (Thank you Wolfmuellers!) Our friends Leon and
Gina invited us to the game, along with their daughters. Gina is a big Walt Weiss fan, so Leon wanted to make sure she got a bobble head.
Last year we all went to the Rockies game together and it was Todd Helton t-shirt day. Guess what all 4 of us wore to the game?
On the way to our seats we picked up some beverages from the best bar at the stadium--The Camerana Loft. Also, on our way to our seats we were stopped by a Rockies giveaway gal. She wanted to upgrade our seats to a suite. What? We turned it down since we were sitting with Leon and Gina. We were promptly scolded by them for not taking the seat upgrade, but it was more fun hanging out with them and the view wasn't too bad either.
The Rockies are celebrating their 20th year as a team together this year, so there have been lots of reminiscing of past years, giveaways, and ticket discounts this year.
Our new favorite player lately has been this guy, Nolan Arenado. Unfortunately, I caught him making an error, which is rare. We love him because of the outstanding plays he makes from 3rd base.
Chacin has always been my Lutheran Stud's favorite Rockies' pitcher. He was on fire during this game. He pitched 8 innings before they pulled him out.
When a Rockie hits a home run the fountains shoot up. It doesn't take much to get a person excited around here.
