In case you haven’t left your house or live out of town, it snowed in Denver. A lot. Coors Field was covered, in fact, and the Colorado Rockies’ social media team decided to share an extra-white glimpse of the crown jewel of LoDo.
Some time later, the Rox tweeted a photo of newly-signed reliever Mike Dunn holding a snowball and extended a snowball fight invitation to the Twitterverse. The Cincinnati Reds—boasting their own snow-covered ballpark—accepted.
And the highlights:
Brilliance from the Rox there. I lost it, personally.
Even the Milwaukee Brewers got involved for a minute—or, should we say, didn’t get involved.
But the Reds quickly took care of that:
The Rox got past the noise and finished up strong.
What do you think? Who won? We debated back and forth for a while before eventually coming to a consensus:
The club will now be referred to as the Coorado Rockies because they just gave the Reds an L in the snowball fight https://t.co/ENoXJQocxd— Purple Row (@PurpleRow) January 5, 2017
Regardless of who won, the Rockies continued to show that they have a top-flight Twitter account—not only in MLB, but pro sports as a whole. Nice job, everyone.
