SparkPeople Colorado Rockies Team Messageboard Fans of the Colorado Rockies SparkPeople Colorado Rockies Team Messageboard Rockies Doing Great Until the Last 6 I can't believe no one has pick this Spark team back up since the Rocks are doing so good up until the last 6. Wed, 28 Jun 2017 19:25:18 EST 2015 Rockies Season How does everyone feel the new GM is doing? What is the general opinion that Tulo and Cargo will be in the starting lineup come April? Wed, 31 Dec 2014 12:14:39 EST Retire 17 I was blessed enough to get to go to this ceremony & game! It was awesome! Unfortunately, due to Grand puppiesc& my son needing to hurry & grab a bite between games, we left at the top of the 8th inning! Missed the rally! My son had his work radio on & heard it! Sheesh! Tue, 19 Aug 2014 18:27:00 EST Dinger gate Am I the only one that finds this laughable? Yet, a bit pathetic that other teams can't handle the fact that the Rockies are so goo the assume that we have. To be cheating! Especially coming from the Giants who have make cheating into a way of life!! Sheesh! Fri, 23 May 2014 13:02:37 EST Starting Over I'm starting over (again). I'm at my highest weight ever. I feel sick and sad and disgusted with myself. I deserve better than what I've done to my body. I am stronger than this! I am taking back control starting right now! <BR> <BR> When we lost our home in the Colorado flood in September I guess I just gave up on myself. It was hard losing everything and starting over from square one. I gave up walking. I gave up eating healthier. I gave up on my goal of walking in the Bolder Boulder. <B... Mon, 14 Apr 2014 12:05:36 EST BONUS POINT CHALLENGE I only got 1 Bonus point today for the Colorado Rockies team. How many did you get? Mon, 14 Apr 2014 10:26:54 EST 2014 Rockies Season!

I am adding one for " Purple Mondays" lets support our team & wear something purple on Mondays! Mon, 31 Mar 2014 12:14:27 EST Already Loosing Hello, <BR> My name is Myra. I started here at Sparkpeople weighing anywhere from 200-215. I am now at 197 but had got down to 192.4 but a friend from out of town came. She was here only 6 days but I went out to eat three times. It would have been four but luckily I had homework do that first day. All this week, I have been exercising almost daily. I want to do at least one more exercise today to get complete the week. I am also a part of this other thing only in Colorado called Weigh and Win...

I hope you are all having a fun offseason & Holiday season! I have noticed that our little team is growing by leaps & bounds, with a new member almost every day!

Tue, 29 Oct 2013 17:54:03 EST 2013 season is here! Well, the good news is, the 2013 season is here!! And Walt is doing good as manager, our hitting was awsome & Chacin pitched well. Now, if we could get some help from the bull pen, we could go ALL THE WAY!! Mon, 1 Apr 2013 20:00:45 EST Preseason 2013 Our boys started the year in good for, with a WIN!! WooHoo! Today they play at 1 MST! Also, hearing that the field & new changes @ Coors Field are coming along! I'm excited to see the changes! Sun, 24 Feb 2013 13:04:58 EST Is Walt Weiss the Man for the Job I think he is just what the team needs to put young and new blood into the team. Mon, 28 Jan 2013 00:21:15 EST Gear up for the 2013 season! Hi fans! Hey, the players are starting to gear up for Spring training, with the new coaching staff. I know that the Rockie's 2013 is going to be exciting & great! I can't wait to see how Walt & Dante do!!! So, in preparation, I would love to see our Rockies team gear up, too! Share what your goals are for this year. Share what you would like to see on this team. How are you doing on your fitness & health goals? Ect... Thu, 17 Jan 2013 10:46:42 EST HAPPY NEW YOU YEAR (and new Rockies staff!) I just wanted to say Happy New Year, a bit early. I will be working on getting this team more active, so if there is something you would like to see on this team, let me know! <BR> In the meantime, remember, to improve something, it HAS to change! So, let's make some changes this year, that we can stick to & will improve our lives & the lives of those around us! <BR> I'm believing that the changes that the Rockies have made are also an improvement! Go Rockies 2013! Sun, 30 Dec 2012 13:34:42 EST Jim Tracy Well, as I expected, Jim Tracy is no longer the manager of the Rockies. If you could pick our new skipper, who would it be? I'm picking either Vinny Castilla or Stu Cole. Mon, 8 Oct 2012 10:30:36 EST Last day of 2012 season It's been a diffecult baseball season, both on & off the field. Rockies played pretty bad, until August! Colorado had the worst wildfire in history & another tragic shooting. But, I still hate to see the season end. <BR> Don't know if I would touch ANYTHING this offseason & if they do, other than Giambi retiring, they are silly! We really have some awsome young guys & our pitchers are finally figuring things out! <BR> As for me & this team, I'm planning A LOT of changes for me! Loss of w... Wed, 3 Oct 2012 19:33:33 EST R.I.P. Jerry McMorris I would LOVE to hear some tributes or how Jerry has effected your lives! <BR> I can say that other than God, my kids, parents, family, friends & ofcourse pets, the Rockies have had the biggest effect on my life! Well, the Rockies & Sky Sox. Even before Tim Tebow!!! Whenever something has happened, it seems like baseball has been there! Where was I when I heard that Princess Diana was in that a Sky Sox game. Where did I go the night of Columbine? Sky Sox. After 9/11...I had... Tue, 8 May 2012 23:18:22 EST Offseason updates & chat Hey, team! I really want to keep this team active during the off season! After all, a lot happends during the break! <BR> So, post any news you hear about our team, baseball in general or even any general comments! <BR> Some news that I heard today, which might be sad for one of our members is: Rockies have decided to move their Pioneer League franchise from Casper to Grand Junction. I'm happy for Grand Junction, because that is where I was born, but sad for the Wyoming fans! Wed, 19 Oct 2011 18:03:12 EST All Star Break Well, it's break time! Hopefully, our Rockies will get some well needed rest & do awsome in the 2nd half of the season! <BR> I hope all of us have a wonderful 2nd half, too! I for one am planning to! I am so excited, because I have finally, decided what I want to do when I grow up, at the young age of, almost, 48! A couple of my friends who are a few years older than me have proved that you are NEVER too old to start something new! I'm definately getting serious about my health & weight!... Mon, 11 Jul 2011 11:52:32 EST Rule Changes? I know that all sports change their rules so I was wondering what people thought about the Posey/Cousins incident which has people talking about changing the rule about running down the catcher at home plate. <BR> I was watching the game on Saturday afternoon (06/04) and the announcers would NOT quit discussing the Posey/Cousins incident. Granted... these were San Francisco announcers but it was quite annoying. <BR> Here are my two cents... If they want to make it illegal to run down the cat... Tue, 7 Jun 2011 14:29:27 EST Friendly competition Hey, team, to get this team active, we are going to have a friendly competition. The member with the most SP points & fitness points is going to be acknowledged & get a goodie (sorry, that's the best I can do). <BR> I would like some input, though, because I'm doing this for all of my teams & some members are on more than one team, how do you feel if that person is the point leader on more than one team? should they be acknowledged on ALL teams? and what about me? I'm thinking about disqu... Wed, 1 Jun 2011 10:20:34 EST Another important, unfortunate SP issue It's come to my attention on another team that there has been some unfortunate issue on SP involving "bullying" and ridicule of one of the member who was writing blogs, that bothered a few people. Though I've never read the blogs & don't know what happened, I guess it got SO bad that this person left SP. I have NEVER run into this problem on any of the teams I'm on now or that I lead & I am thankful. But, I guess we all need a reminder. Please, try to be considerate of other's feelings. ... Wed, 18 May 2011 19:59:14 EST Rockies' Home Run for the Homeless 5k - May 8th Hey everyone! <BR> <BR> I'll be doing this charity 5k with my family next Sunday. I heard Dinger will be there too :) Hope to see some of you out there! Sun, 1 May 2011 16:16:30 EST Give away dates Anyone know the goodie give away dates for the Rockies? Tue, 26 Apr 2011 09:37:27 EST Woot Woot!!! We won!!!! <em>104</em> Tue, 26 Apr 2011 09:36:26 EST Shoot! Yesterdays game was not what we wanted/needed! Tue, 19 Apr 2011 09:09:40 EST Game yesterday Was AWESOME!!!! Mon, 18 Apr 2011 12:46:24 EST Let's get our team "Rockin'" for the '11 season Hey peeps! Sorry, that I have been kinda MIA for the past few months & most of preseason! 2011 hasn't gotten off to the bast start! But, I'm back full force, determined to loose weight, be an active leader for our team & root for our Boys of Summer as they go to the World Series! I don't know if I have told any of you this, but my Step Daddy passed a couple of weeks ago & the day he passed I went to see him. He was as big a Rockies fan as I am & probably the reason my boys are such avid ... Sun, 27 Mar 2011 11:28:49 EST Chain emails on SP People, SP has sent out an email asking that no one participate in the chain emails & comments that are going around SP right now. It is over loading the server & slowing things down. And personally, it is a sweet comment, but kind of annoying, I had tons of emails today! <BR> Again, please, don't participate. Tue, 25 Jan 2011 17:11:57 EST Pre-Spring Training short Challenge. Okay, I'm sorry this took so long. But, players will be reporting to Spring Training in about a month, so I thought, how about we work on our goals while waiting for Spring Training to start. Also, I have an event on Feb. 12th that I want to loose 10lbs before. <BR> So, there is the challenge, people. Post your weightloss/fitness goal & let us know how you are doing. I will commit to letting everyone know how many workout minutes & my weight(gulp)twice a week. I will post on Wednsday & S... Wed, 12 Jan 2011 18:31:35 EST Excited!!!! We will be starting soon!! Tue, 4 Jan 2011 09:53:17 EST 2011 Challenges Okay, its a new year, lets see if we can get some challenges going & succeed! Suggestions? I am determined to get this weight off by baseball season, how about the rest of you, any ideas? Sat, 1 Jan 2011 09:53:06 EST Has Spring Training Started Yet? Greetings from Northern Colorado. I am a big fan of baseball and the Colorado Rockies. I am a former high school umpire who has been forced to step down because of the number of concussions I have received in my life. I miss being on the diamond, but love watching Rockies, win or lose, and am excited to see how the team will play in 2011. It certainly has been an exciting team to watch and follow the past few years! <BR> <BR> Merry Christmas everyone! Fri, 24 Dec 2010 12:02:07 EST Christmas Challenge So! How did everyone do on their Thanksgiving challenges? I, myself, blew it! GRRRRRRRR <BR> Onward & Upward, right? <BR> So, how about Christmas? <BR> I am determined to work on loosing weight...imagine that, considering that's why most of us are here! <BR> I've been pretty good @ watching what I eat & giving up my beer, so now I need to get back to incorporating working out again! <BR> So, for me the challenge is to loose 2 dress sizes, instead of concentraiting on the scale! <BR> Who wan... Fri, 26 Nov 2010 20:18:03 EST Thanksgiving Challenge Hi everyone! For those of you that joined me in the Halloween challenge, I hope you did well. I actually, didn't get it all done, sniff. But, my boys are coming home for Thanksgiving, so it is a MUST to get my house together for that! <BR> Plus, my dad has taken up announcing that I'm front of people. Not that that should inspire me, because I'm kind of rebelious, you'd think I would gain weight to spite him. But, me & my health & how I free about myself is more important, so I'... Sun, 31 Oct 2010 18:36:25 EST Halloween Goal/Challenge Per posts, Rockie's fans need something for the "off season" so we've decided on short term & long term goals/challenges. <BR> Since we are already close to Halloween, I didn't really want something too hard, so how about if we each choose a goal we want to achieve by Halloween & post every couple of days how we are doing. It doesn't have to be weight/fitness, but can be & definately, if you have more than one, that's great, too! <BR> My goals by Halloween is: Get my house organized & clea... Wed, 6 Oct 2010 13:11:07 EST Important SP Rockies Team question Okay, so I hate being a "Negative Nelly" but, chances are the Rockies will only be playing for about a week more. <BR> I just want to know how to keep our team active on the off season. I would hate for it to go stagnate. <BR> Any suggestions? Any off season challenges you would like to see us do? Please, feel free to let me know what you think. Mon, 27 Sep 2010 23:59:20 EST All Start picks Just thought I'd get some feathers flying & ask for opinions about the All Star game picks. How do you feel about Colorado obviously being slighted, I feel again? Ubaldo was picked, but probably won't start. Tulo was picked, but won't play due to injuries. <BR> And how do you feel about the fact that it is determining the home field advantage? <BR> My poor son, who has watched every All Star game for as long as I can remember, is actually boycotting & not watching, just because he feels it... Mon, 5 Jul 2010 12:36:07 EST Won again!! They took the Padres last night!! My family was at the game in CA. I am totally JEALOUS!! Wed, 30 Jun 2010 11:19:58 EST Rox tickets So I just wanted to complain for a second. It really chaps my hide when you go to buy tickets online and there's all the "convenience fees" and "delivery charges." Ergg... Really? It's not like it costs THEM anything when I print out the tickets from home. Ticketmaster is the devil. <BR> I guess I need to quit complaining - at least I can still see the Rockies for under $10 (Rockpile) even with all the fees! Fri, 7 May 2010 15:32:55 EST Spammer I just wanted to warn you that, even SP gets Spammers. I guess over the weekend, someone was busy sending Spam out as comments on member's blogs. If you get one, something about loosing weight to fit into a wedding dress(totally, had nothing to do with my blog). Just delet the comment. SP is aware of it & the Member page has been removed. If you run across anyone else doing this feel free to let me or SP know. You can also go to the bottom of thier Page & report them! Mon, 26 Apr 2010 11:36:49 EST A NO HITTER!!! Wow - the first no hitter in Colorado history today by Jimenez!! Could this be because I just joined the Coloraod Rockies Spark Team today? =) Sat, 17 Apr 2010 21:50:16 EST Superstition ion....oh, come on you know you have This will probably turn into a blog, today. But, I wanted to ask my Rockies baseball friends this question 1st. <BR> We all have one, you know it! What superstition or good luck charm/item do you have, when watching the game? <BR> Baseball players are notorious for being superstitious & I know that I am! <BR> I have my Rockies slippers, never fails, when I have them on, we do good! I was sitting her watching the game, score was 0-0 when I realized I didn't have my slippers on, sure enoug... Sun, 11 Apr 2010 16:18:36 EST April/home opener challenge Okay, I'm thinking in honor of the Home Opener, to start a challenge. Actually, I will try to get us a monthly challenge, but I'm late, so I'm calling this one "Home Opener" challenge. <BR> I thought I would forgo the fitness/weightloss goals, you can get those elsewhere. This is more of a personal one! <BR> With spring in the air, I want to get adventerous & try something new everyday, but that might be a lot to try, so how about TRY SOMETHING NEW ONCE A WEEK! <BR> Please, join in & let ... Fri, 9 Apr 2010 09:05:14 EST Help me get to know you! I just thought this would help us get to know each other: <BR> <BR> Copy and paste the blank one then fill in the Blanks <BR> Thanks (Please copy these words also) <BR> <BR> <BR> Married?- <BR> <BR> Kids?- <BR> <BR> Job?- <BR> <BR> Birthday (M-D-Y)?- <BR> <BR> Zodiac sign?- <BR> <BR> Favorite color?- <BR> <BR> Favorite Holiday?- <BR> <BR> Any pets?- <BR> <BR> Any collections?- <BR> <BR> Any Hobbies?- <BR> <BR> Any pet peeves?- <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> Tue, 16 Mar 2010 10:06:02 EST SP Tech problems According to Coach Jen, SP is having some tech problems & people aren't getting some of thier e-mails & digests. They are trying to get this fixed. Sun, 14 Mar 2010 18:48:41 EST Spring Training Challenge Ok! I finally did it! I came up with a challenge, that I hope we can all get on board for: <BR> Loose atleast, one size before opening day! I didn't want to do a pound lost challenge or work out challenge, but I know for me, I really want to get in a smaller size jeans before opening day! I have so many cute pair of jeans I bought before this last 20lb weight gain, that I really want to get into, so that is the challenge, hope you are all on board!!! Mon, 1 Mar 2010 22:53:17 EST Spring Training Challenge I'm wanting to put together a Spring Training Challenge, since our Rockies are working hard, I thought we should work hard, too. Any suggestions? Sat, 27 Feb 2010 23:48:45 EST
