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 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!!
