Snake Bite

The diamondbacks sunk their fangs into the Rockies yesterday during the season opener and the team died a slow, venomous death. Although the fans showed up it seems the Rockies are still off season. Their playing was no where near what is expected of a team who played in last year's World Series. Disappointing doesn't even begin to describe the pathetic show the team made. It looks like the batting and pitching coaches have some work to do. Hopefully the team will show up for a game sooner rather than later.

On the plus side the schizophrenic spring weather that Colorado is known for turned to the fairer side and while fans in the shade sat in their coats, fans in the sun basked in strappy tops and shirt sleeves. The opening ceremony was the best part of the whole game with a fly over and ceremony honoring our armed forces.

The most optimistic summary of the game is that the Rockies can only go up from here because one thing is certain, they sure can't play any worse! Mom
