ROCKTOBER!

The Rockies are going to the World Series after doing something that no team in the National League has ever done; they swept the playoffs; 7 games in a row. They have won 21 games out of the last 22 games they played. Red Sox or Indians, Here we come!!!!!!

What a game! Arizona had me scared after the 7th inning but weren't able to get the 2 runs they needed to tie the game.

I am sitting here typing this wearing my black T-shirt with a silver ROCKTOBER and the CR logo and tomorrow Sarah Jessica Clemetine, Toad Haven's official scarecrow is getting dressed in Colorado Rockies finery. Where can I find a Rockies cap? The paraphenalia is scarce because noone expected them to do what they have done.

This ain't your father's Rockies!

And I even finished cutting out the autumn leaves while watching the game. Luckily, I was finished before I had to start wringing my hands and crossing my fingers.

Purple Reign!

Wow, they are a team of DESTINY!!!!

I noticed some of the fans wearing the ultimate Rockies hat...it was black and had white 3D mountains coming out of the crown. You've GOT to find yourself one of those....don't worry; you can bet the manufacturers are working 24/7 this week!

Congrats to your Rockies. As I'm a National Leaguer all the way, I'll be rooting for them, not matter who they play.

Yay, Rockies! I posted about 'em too. But in relation to the sox I'm knitting.

As we say in the south, "I don't have a dog in that fight," so I'll root for your Rockies too!

My hubby is from Mass. so of course he has been watching the Red Sox struggle along. I find it very painful watching sports, but I like that it gives him entertainment so that I can enjoy quilting without feeling like I should be paying him more attention!

Congrats on the Rockies!! They are a team to contend with! Hope that we will be seeing them in Boston. But we have some work to do before we can invite them!!
