It doesn’t get any better than this.
The Colorado Rockies beat the Philadelphia Phillies 2-1 tonight to sweep the Phillies and take the National League Division Series. They now get ready for the Arizona Diamondbacks on Thursday night.
The Rockies proved tonight that they are a good team and that they are real. To show the nation how well they are doing is incredible. They are erasing a lot of doubts that the pundits were throwing around at the beginning of the series.
All but a couple of pundits predicted the Phillies would win easily. No one east of the Mississippi knew of the Rockies and thought they would fold. But they didn’t and are sending a message to baseball.
This is the happiest that I have ever been not to be going to a baseball game. I had tickets for the game if it went to a fourth game. But if you can close out a team, you do it and the Rockies did.
Go Rockies! Beat the Diamondbacks!
