Colorado Rockies baseball

Every once in a while, you need to get out of work a bit early and catch a sporting event. When I'm in downtown Denver, it's easiest to catch a baseball game at Coors Field. With tickets at $5 to get in the outfield "Rockpile" section, it doesn't break the bank to check out a game (and I feel it doesn't contribute to the over-paid athlete syndrome).

This summer I caught 2 Rockies games at Coors Field. The first was a thriving 5-4 win in the 9th over the NY Mets. The second was a rough 10-4 beating by the Atlanta Braves. One of the games, we won some free beers (hint: keep an eye on the big screen to enter to win) and the other we won some free sandwiches. Both times we witnessed center fielder Charlie Blackmon crush home runs.
