NLCS Wallpaper is here! Pictures and text for free!
Just in time for the opening game of the NLCS tonight in Phoenix, I've finished the NLCS Schedule wallpaper! A lot of the delay comes from the fact that I was very conflicted over which pictures to use as a background, and once I decided, actually finding the pictures was kind of hard. Plus, it is quite difficult, I've found, to find pictures of any player on the Colorado roster, because they don't play in New York or Boston.
The featured man this month is Kaz Matsui, of course; after his awesome DS performance garnered him national media attention, I figured it only natural to place him on the wallpaper. I'm also experimenting with the black background, we'll see how that goes.
As always, the wallpapers come in every flavor of the rainbow; choose the one that best fits your desktop. As I did back in June, I'm providing these in very high-quality BMP format, so they will take a literal eternity to download. Since this is the case, I've also attached low-quality JPEG previews.
And now, a very pressing issue. By next March, I will finally have enough money for a Rockies jersey. I'm getting the purple authentic one, because I figure that if you're going to get a jersey, go all the way and get one that's high-quality and looks good (I've always thought the purple looks better than the pinstripes). Anyway, my dilemma is this...since I am going "all the way" as it were, I will be getting a player name on the back. But who? I've narrowed my choices to Holliday, Francis, and Tulowitzki, and am currently leaning towards Tulo. Any thoughts?
And one final question...where on this internet does one go to look up contract information on players? Like, does everyone here just know off the top of their heads how many years each player on our roster have for arbitration, or is there a resource for it? Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
Hope you enjoy the wallpaper! 3 wins down, 8 to go!
