So my kids love going to Rockies games -- even if the Rockies aren't the best team in the league, somehow going to a game is always a lot of fun (and can be a relatively inexpensive family outing). On Saturday, July 28th, the Rockies will play the LA Dodgers in a 6:05 game; growing up in California (Giants land, y'know) I can't STAND the Dodgers! I'm hoping the Rockies win BIG.
However, the really cool thing about this game is the added benefit that this is also the Rockies' "Stitch 'n' Pitch" night where folks of all ages and genders will bring their stitching to the game, sit in a special section, and stitch while the teams pitch (get it?)..... So String Bean and I will get to sit with the knitters (and other lesser-stitchers) while Dad, LegoManiac and Bam Bam will be up in the "Rock Pile" (aka, CHEAP seats) cheering for the Rockies (altho Bam Bam claims he's going for the Dodgers!).
