The Rockhead is middle-aged, living in Lakewood, CO. I became a life-long Rockie fan on April 26, 1995 when Bichette went yard in the 14th to win the Coors opener.

Confessions of a reticent Rockhead

  Although I have been keeping up with all things Purple Row, I haven’t posted much lately. Largely because I don’t what to say. The “State of the Rockies” is obvious, which is to say “a mess.” I...

Vocabulary Time

Google's "define" feature is one of my favorite tools. And since I'm at a near loss for words regarding a certain baseball team, I thought I'd help out fellow PR residents who might be in the same...

It's just so true, yes? Got a big chuckle out of this one!

Regrouping

What's Up for Early Spring?

So spring reached first base here in Denver today. March the 2nd promises a return to winter, but God, it was sweet to sit in the sun and enjoy the warmth. As I know that all of us are counting the...

It finally caught up with me

Yesterday, I got out of bed, showered, got dressed and went to work. A normal Monday. Until about three in the afternoon. A tiredness I haven't felt in ages came over me. I was barely able to stay...

How do I say this?

When I got into work today, one of my two bosses came to my desk to "check up" on me. The notion that my beloved Rox had lost the first two games of the Series had somehow left me on the disabled...

Thanks, Rockheads!

Thanks to all of you who commented on my previous diary about my late father. I can't begin to tell you how inspiring it's been to read your stories of your own dads. I feel much less alone in this...

Words of wisdom from Mr. Byrnes

"I know we're a good team," Diamondbacks left fielder Eric Byrnes said. "I also don't think the Rockies have outplayed us, because they haven't. They've had a little luck go their way. Definitely,...

Ifs and buts and wishes and.....
