No tickets for me

Yes, the Rockies certainly made their fair share of mistakes in this process. The biggest, I think, was not putting the tickets up for sale before the participants were known. Waiting this long created a demand they couldn't meet.  Hopefully, they will learn from this experience and apply the lesson to next year's World Series. (Yes, I am ever the optimist.)

No system is ideal, I guess. I have never had any luck waiting for my name to be drawn out of hat. I've tried at least 20 times in the last 30 years to draw Final Four tickets. I've watched them all on TV. (Sigh.) I probably would have been the next person in line at Coors when the  "Sold Out" sign went up. I tried to get WS tickets online like the rest of you, but never got past the freaking countdown clock. Again, like many of you. So be it.

The view's pretty good from the couch, and as a couple of you have previously noted, the beer's cheaper, the brats are freshly grilled, and the dog doesn't have to stay home alone for the night. On top of it all, I won't have to eat peanut butter until payday. ;)

The good news? Our Rox return to the field tomorrow night in their first World Series. How `bout that? After 8 agonizing days of no baseball, the Purple/Silver/Black are back.

Have fun, have faith. Scream at the umps, high-five somebody when it's going well. I've lived long enough to know that these times are rare times. Savor them. Make memories with your friends, your loved ones, or complete strangers at the bar. Whatever happens in the next few days, no one can ever take this Rocktober from us.

Go Rockies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
