What a crazy night of baseball!

The Rockies have punched their ticket to their first World Series. They beat the D-backs, 6-4, for the NLCS sweep. Join me on a picture journey through last night’s two ball games…

After Matt Holliday’s 3-run HR, it seemed to be a foregone conclusion that the Rockies would be winning this game. The D-Backs tried to make it interesting late, but were short 2 runs when it was all said and done.

I love these pics where the catcher is jumping into the arms of his pitcher. I love to see unbridled joy.

Aw, look, it’s Kaz! I never begrudged his time here in NYC, and I’m glad he’s able to blossom in a great city like Denver.

I also love any pic where the athlete is with his child.

Why hasn’t anyone told me exactly how hot Jake Westbrook is?

He pitched well against the BoSox, leading his team – the Indians -to a win to take a 2-1 lead in the ALCS.

You, Grady, are no Endy Chavez.

In the NFL, the NY Giants beat the Atlanta Falcons, 31-10. Really, did anyone think that the Falcons would win? Joey Harrington played like Joey H., and the Giants took advantage at playing one of the worst teams in the league.

Alright, I was going to post more celebration pictures , but I am getting sleepy. Will post a few in the morning.

  1. HOORAY ROCKIES!!! Yay Tribe!!! Salvaged my otherwise craptacular Monday.

    The Harrington pic is priceless! Poor Joey, as crappy as he is, he hadn’t a snowball’s chance last night w/2 rookie tackles. He should be grateful that he survived.

  2. TSW-Yeah, the ones that spelled out Sizemore? I thought that was cool. Of course I’m easy to please so there’s that. Are those the Grady’s Ladies?

  3. I really want to root for the Rockies and the NL, since I’m so conflicted about who I dislike more – Sox or Indians. The only problem is every team I’ve rooted for (Tigers, Cubbies) has royally sucked, so I have no choice but for root for my most hated team then, right?

    Go Tribe!

    (It hurts to say that)

  4. *grumbles* Yeah yeah, way to go, stupid Rockies.

    *ahem* It’s good, though, that they get to go to their first WS. I just wish my Phillies would’ve put up a fight against them, yanno? I’d be pulling for them 100 percent if they’d beaten another team in the first round.

    Man, what was up with Grady going O-for last night? Oh well, GO INDIANS, I still say. :)
