U. of Utah alumni night at Coors Field 7/24 vs. SF was mostly a bummer of a game...little offense...fans sitting around me in my group, a lot of first-timers this year from what I could tell...weren't that much into it. But the pre-game alumni picnic under the Rockpile stands was real fun...owner Charlie Monfort (Utah '82) great with the fans. I introduced myself to Monfort, talked about college days at the U., then I asked, "Do you ever read some of the Rockies blogs, you know, like Purple Row? At first he wasn't sure what I was talking about, then he said "Oh yeah, Purple Row, that's a real good one. I read it several times a week on my Kindle." Also talked a little baseball...Charlie was real happy for Matt Holliday with news of him going to St. Louis earlier in the day.
Hanging out on the concourse late in game.
Outfield seats mostly packed with a 40,000+ crowd.
Nothing like a warm summer evening at Coors Field.
