Jorge De La Rosa, easily the greatest pitcher of his generation, goes up against one of the lesser pitchers of his generation. There is no questioning the glory that is to come from this game. I deciphered an ancient scroll found in a clay jar just outside of Kanorado (I think this is a picture of our archaeological dig ) and it said that in the year after the Rockies go to the World Series, the "bloom of the rose" will wear down the white stockings. Or maybe it said the bloom of the rose will smell like gym socks. Actually, maybe it said to go get a Blooming Onion at Outback and maybe it really wasn't so much an ancient scroll as it was an advertising circular found on the side of the freeway, but that's besides the point.

Go Rockies!
