Okay, I'll admit it...the World Series didn't go exactly as I would have liked.
But come on.
We made it to the World Series!
Boston did it the boring, old fashioned way-they played great baseball all year long. We took a less traditional approach. By now everyone has heard of the winning 21/22 baseball games, where the first 14 of those games were Must Win, because in mid-September, we were 4 1/2 games back. It was exciting! I was lucky to go to many of the games toward the end of the season, and I may never see as exciting game as our playoff-playoff come from behind in the 13th inning, win. It was fun to be a part of, and the Rockies made history.
So, another season over, time to recuperate and start looking towards spring training. My students have already assured me that "they will play again next year" even though guarantees of wins haven't been as plentiful. So, thanks for a great year!
