Since we seem to be having a day to reflect back on previous memories and accomplishments, why don't we take a look back at some of our best and worst memories of Rockies games we've attended?
A bit of euphoria after the jump.
MY BEST MEMORY - Attending the Wild-Card tiebreaker, sitting about ten rows in back of Todd Helton at first base, down with all the die-hards. I remember people standing up to boo Jorge Julio when he gave up a nearly disastrous home run and then breaking out in arguments over booing the home team. The kid in back of me started crying. But, it faded fast as the Rox came back to rock Trevor Hoffman. The moment Matt Holliday touched (or, in the Padres' opinion, did not touch) the plate may be the most chaotic moment I have ever witnessed, as one could go deaf in that scene of roaring and hugging among the season ticket holders. Denver turned into a madhouse after the game and somebody visiting the town might have thought an alien invasion had taken place with how loud the whole town became. Quite a night that was.
MY WORST MEMORY - A tie. The first was when I went to opening weekend 2008 and watched the Rockies get slaughtered in the first two games. The next was when I was there actually rooting for the Giants in 2001. The game lasted about 14 innings on a cold September night and I had gotten club level seats to watch the game. Of course, I went away terribly disappointed when the Rockies eventually rallied for the win, sending me home tired and disgruntled, without seeing Barry Bonds knock another dinger to his record-setting season. I believe he was walked three times. Very disappointing.
