Oh my goodness oh my goodness!

Wow. That was the best game I have EVER been to. After Friday's devastating loss, there was only a slim, slim chance of us making the playoffs. Basically, the padres had to lose both of their remaining games, and we had to win both. It was pretty sad.

Well...go figure....WE DID IT! I was pretty disappointed, getting to Coors field to find San Diego winning 3-0. Because what we did didn't matter unless they lost. Well, everytime the score was shown for the san-diego-milwaukee game, the crowd went totally wild....milwaukee came back to win 11-4!! and the Rockies won in a great, 4-3 nailbiter! YAHOOOOOOOO! Even better, we are going to the tiebreaker game tomorrow for the wild card spot with the Padres-Thanks Chris! Yippee!

"Who woulda thunk?" That's a quote from

The rest of Denver just remembered that we have a baseball team.

All it took was
11. Straight. Wins.
And tonight, my guys are coming home to play the division leaders...AND I'll be at the game! I also heard on the radio that Vegas's odds on the Rockies WINNING the World Series are 15-1! Okay, guys, let's keep this up for 3 more games, shall we?

Go, Rockies!

After last nights game, I have to celebrate (especially in case my parade is rained on soon). Padres: in 1st place for the wild card in the National League, on a 7-game winning streak, and at home. Rockies: 4.5 games back, on a 5-game winning streak, and on the road. Rockies were up 1-0 until the Padres hit a single homer in the 9th to tie it. Finally, in the 14th inning, the Rockies win it! Woohoo! Way to go, guys!

Sunday update: this parade hasn't been rained on yet! Rockies swept the Padres in San Diego, winning 8 straight and moving within 1.5 games of the wild card-yippee!

Playing with the video upload...

This is a test blog, to see how the video upload works. The video is from the Inti Raymi celebration that went on when I was in Peru. Don't bother getting out your Spanish-English dictionaries; the ceremony is held in the Quechua language. Try not to get sea-sick! I was sitting on quite a steep hill.

I just got an email from my mom that she and Mark successfully summited Mt. Kilimanjaro-Africa's highest peak at 19,340 feet! Way to go, Mom! Next, a day off, and an African safari. Wow.

Nadda mas...

Not much is new. I've been sick for the last week. "Student A" got a hair trim, so his spider web is even spiffier, and red with blue tips (patriotic!). Also, my mom left for Tanzania, Africa on Saturday to climb Mt. Kilamanjaro! Not sure how that is spelled. So, I am dog-sitting my favorite dog, Lucy. The good: it's an excuse to leave work early, and get out and walk! The bad: she wants to walk, even when it's raining! But, she's a doll. And, watching her every now and then reminds me why I don't have a dog, though I love ' yard, not home enough. Oh, also, I am actually interested in baseball in September, so that's new, the Rox are holding their own! This is unusual. And, I decided to re-read all 6 Harry Potter books before diving into #7. I'm on the 4th one. That is all, I think!
