After this year’s annual trade fiasco, Kiz, are you finally going to admit that the Rockies are a minor league team owned and run by the most incompetent, delirious clown show in all of baseball? It’s time for fans to boycott this property which has nothing but contempt for them, even as owner Dick Monfort laughs all the way to the bank. – Ken, Thorton
Kiz: The Rockies have no idea how to build a winner. This team couldn’t spell “clue” and solve a wheel of fortune riddle if you spot Monfort and his merry band of men yes the “C”, the “U” and the “E”.
Come on, Kiz, of all the letters of the alphabet you leave in the Rockies to solve your puzzle, they should know how to find the “L”. They see a lot of “L”s throughout the season. – PF, northern Colorado
Kiz: If my memory serves me correctly, the first time I called on baseball fans to boycott the Rockies was in the spring of 2007. My sage advice inspired the team to embark on an unexpected and incredible run to the World Series that we all remember fondly from Rocktober. Hmm, do you think maybe the only way Colorado will be a playoff contender again is if I make another lame attempt to keep fans from visiting Coors Field? The Rockies are run by morons. I’ll let you find the word for the good people who loyally support a distraught baseball franchise with their hard-earned money to buy tickets.
I took my 14 month old to a game last weekend. It was a more relaxing father-daughter experience than I could have had in any Avs, Nuggets, Broncos or Rapids game. So much fun too. Hate the Monfort brothers all you want, a Rockies game is always a perfect few hours use. – Jared, happy camper
Kiz: Coors Field is one of Colorado’s most manicured picnic spots. Good weather. No ants. Clean bathrooms. It’s the perfect place to spend a few hours with family or friends…as long as you don’t care if the Rockies win the game. During the frequent lulls in the action at a baseball game, I am constantly amused that our beautiful ballpark in LoDo buzzes with the faint buzz of conversation from spectators who pay very little attention to what is happening on field.
Hi. I just wanted to let you know that you’re the main reason I renewed my Denver Post subscription. Keep writing, Kiz. – Paul, former newspaper boy
Kiz: Humble thanks and sincere apologies for those many mornings when a crazy sports shot caused you to sniff morning coffee through your nose.
And today’s parting shot is a fond farewell to the GOAT of baseball broadcasters, Vin Scully, who passed away last week.
As a California kid who got my driver’s license in the late 1960s, I went to Dodger Stadium many times to watch the Dodgers take on my beloved Giants. Whenever at Chavez Ravine, you could still faintly hear Scully’s voice in the background, as many stadium fans were listening to him on their transistor radios. – Stan, California dreaming
