Do you really know what it's like to hate someone? I mean really hate 'em? With a passion, a fury, a vengeance?
You know what I'm talking about? Well if you are a Rockies fan, you should when it comes to this:
The Rockies and the Dodgers
If I can speak for most Rockies fans, I can't stand the Dodgers, I hate the Dodgers.
We've shared players:
Now tell me that don't breed contempt.
What if you yard sale a few drawings to a neighbor up the street, and the turned out to be Da Vincis?
You would hate his guts, right? You're damn right you would! And that's just talking about some ink on paper. What if the stakes were bigger? What if they were playoffs? division titles? pennants? championships? respect? Huh?
Now you don't just hate him, you want to hit him, you want to embarrass him, you want to beat them! You want to say to them: "I like that movement on that curveball you just threw me, espcially after I put it 15 rows into the left field bleachers!". You want their mothers to say: "Oh no, that's not my child that just took a fourth called strikeout, my child knows how to swing the bat!!!"
Well that's what is going on there for the next three games! There are Dodgers! There are Rockies! There are piles of frustration and hate! And then there is you!
So I ask you, Rockies fans? Are you ready?
Let's leave these guys lost in the mile high air!
