Getting in a Baseball Mood

Even though we are in the early rounds of the NCAA basketball championships, I have been getting in the mood for some baseball. I have been watching bits and pieces of the World Baseball Classic, and am looking ahead to a summer of Major League excitement.

With that in mind, let's get in the baseball mood with a few pictures I took at a Colorado Rockies games at Coors Field in Denver back in June of 2003 and May of 2006.

The first picture is the scoreboard, obviously. What is interesting is that two of the major advertisers are no longer around. The Rocky Mountain News is now gone, after nearly 150 years. And Bank One is now part of Chase. Oh for the days of two newspapers and banks that were not begging for taxpayer relief!

Then we have the cotton candy vendor. What better sweet treat on a summer's day than these spun sugary goodness.

Finally, here is a guy who cannot look away from the game...the television cameraman, broadcasting the game to fans far and wide.

As always, click on a picture for a larger version. Take me out to the ballgame!
