No need to check facebook while at the stadium, we have you covered here at purplerow - Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

David Dahl's choice of details to tweet might have resulted in his hiatus from the social networking site. That, and more, in this week's roundup!

Many of you follow the Rockies happenings on Twitter and Facebook, and even have alerts sent to your work email. For others, like me, who are not as up on all of the 24/7 social media coverage of our favorite team, this article will bring you the interesting and, more importantly, funny things that have happened in the Rockies' small, dark corner of the Internet during the week.

I hope you have enjoyed this quick look at the social media offerings from the past week. To see all of this stuff and more as it happens, like us on Facebook and give us a follow on Twitter.

However, you can always find me here on Purple Row, which is where I will continue to scour the web to bring you interesting Rockies-related social media content every week.
