“Baseball is an allegorical play about America, a poetic, complex, and subtle play of courage, fear, good luck, mistakes, patience about fate, and sober self-esteem.”

  1. Monday night football against the Packers and Game 5 of the World Series.

    If Denver doesn’t balance it’s books from a tax revenue perspective that night, something is wrong.

    Oh wait a minute – the Rockies will sweep in four and there won’t be a Game 5!

    1. His first postseason appearance in his 11 years with the Rockies…
      He makes the final out for the pennant…
      He’s wearing that satanic goatee this year…
      Yep, gotta be Helton.

    1. After reading through (most) of the debate and your recommendations, I’ve gotta hand it to you, that was an amazing event and you do run an absolutely fantastic blog. It’s especially nice for us Boulder-ites living a long ways from home in terms of keeping up with hometown politics and voting in elections that I can’t be there for! Great job.

  2. Air America radio host Randi Rhodes was mugged on Sunday night while walking her dog nearby her Manhattan apartment. “According to Air America Radio late night host Jon Elliott, Rhodes was beaten up pretty badly, losing several teeth and will probably be off the air for at least the rest of the week.” h/t ThinkProgress

    Not that she’s my favorite AirAmerica radio host, that’s reserved for Thom Hartman, but please join me in wishing Rhandi a speedy recovery and a return to airing the truth out over the airwaves of AirAmerica.

    1. But she DOES get a little hard to take in more than small doses.  Still, the left sometimes tends to be TOO polite and rational and it’s good to have someone so passionately countering the hysterical right, even if it’s with a little over-the-top hysteria of her own.  She gets a lot of people’s attention, including many who are new to the issues, just now getting fed up with where the neocons have taken us. I hate to think of what she suffered and wish her all the best.

      1. I use to listen to rush every month. These days, it is AA. She reminds me a lot of Rush; Basically an attack dog. The big difference is that she is not full of S*&T, though she gets plenty wrong.

        Hopefully she recovers quickly.

        1. She comes on locally at 7PM on AM760 (right after Randi’s show) and is really smart, calm, entertaining, easy to listen to and well prepared. She’s also a frequent guest on Countdown.

    2. More of a rumor than anything … evidently, she slipped and fell.  Maybe she was out with Judge Nottingham and tied one on, and doesn’t want to admit it…. 🙂

  3.   Although I’ve been a baseball fan most of my life, I had drifted almost completely away from the game the past few years due to the corruption and betrayal of the steroid scandal plus the obscene amounts paid for multi-year contracts to major stars.  And the Rox were so bad it was no pleasure to even sit at Coors and drink beer in their presence.
      This team, by contrast, seems like a bunch of kids and no-name lifers who are playing the game the way it is supposed to be played–seeing their joy at what they do, and the totally unexpected run they are on, bring me back to the reasons I loved the game in the first place.
      Win or lose, I am grateful to the Rox for restoring a measure of my connection with baseball.

    1. The Rockies have been a pleasure and a joy to watch.  Living in Florida, I get to see them when they play the Marlins, Braves, or Cubbies, and that’s about it.  But I’ve been following – and now I’m spoiled getting to watch all the games.

      It doesn’t show through in box scores, but the beauty of the run has been that they’re doing it the “right” way.  Sure, they’re probably just as guilty of the ‘roided-up home run as the next team, but the strength hasn’t been that.  It’s the been the fundamentals – good pitching through-and-through, simply *outstanding* defense, and simple base hits.  It’s the way baseball’s been played for near a century and a half, and the way it always ought to be played.  Done right, it’s a truly beautiful thing to watch.

      And I’ve managed to convert my soccer-loving wife back from the dark side in the process – so that’s good, too.

      Let Rocktober Roll!

  4. I love the way they’ve brought up South American talent…even teaching them English. They’re not a highly paid team, but they’re well coached and motivated.

    I’d love to know more about this business model. It seems to be working!
