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.
Please don't hesitate to leave your thoughts -- and your own discoveries -- in the comments section below.
This week we had a sign on Twitter from David Dahl that he might be maturing:
Opening day is tomorrow! Time to get this ring!! Deciding to shut it down from twitter for awhile.. Hope everyone has a great season!— David Dahl (@ddahl21) April 3, 2014
Then again, he could be the second coming of Ian Stewart:
Won't be leaving my room for awhile since I got that Xbox 1— David Dahl (@ddahl21) April 3, 2014
Let's hope that his moratorium on venturing into the real world doesn't include baseball practice and games.
Moving onto the big leagues, Ryan Spilborghs discussed Charlie Blackmon's wearing of his number and his outstanding beard that has been admired by many:
We almost ruined the space and time continuum by uniting our powers. Luckily we are all still here. @Chuck_Nazty pic.twitter.com/TLJDEAimd9— Ryan Spilborghs (@spillygoat19) April 2, 2014
On a sadder note, the purple row of seats that bequeathed this site its name has been removed -- but only in upper right field -- for a rooftop party area, but its memory will remain:
The @PurpleRow guys will appreciate this. Though the row is gone in RF for @RoxRooftop, it isn't forgotten. @Rockies pic.twitter.com/VReuC80aVR— Tyler Maun (@TylerMaun) April 2, 2014
Perhaps in an effort to appease the Purple Row fan base, a purple row (line) has been added to Blake Street in front of Coors Field:
It's official! The @Rockies ' purple stripe has been painted on Blake St. from 19th - 22nd St. Photo credit: @9NEWS pic.twitter.com/KAdTil7kNK— Downtown Denver (@DowntownDenver) April 2, 2014
If you want to see what is, in my opinion, the sweetest home run swing of the year so far, check out this link. Here is an image to give a hint:
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. Just don't try and find me on the latter, as I am not hiding there, as one Purple Row reader thought. I am just too old fashioned to have an account. 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.
