The Worst Sports Promotion. Ever.


The Colorado Rockies are off to one of the best starts in franchise history with a 41-25 record (second best in MLB). In fact, the success of the new look Blake Street Bombers is the best in Denver sports history. According to Rockies scorekeeper and CU's Dave Plati, " (The Rockies) are 24-10 on the road and the first team in Denver major league history that is 14 games over .500 at any point in a season (Avs were +13 three times, Nuggets +9 in the ABA in '74-75). Best runs are a 24-8 span the Broncos were on the road from 2012-to early 2016, and the old Denver Bears were 17 over in both 1976 and 1980." Wow. All of the hits keep on coming in LoDo, except for this June 17 promotion vs. the San Francisco Giants for Nebraska fans. One of the worst promotions in sports history features a red hat with a Rockies logo, that would only be cool with a "62-36, never forget patch". No Colorado love for the team we supported through the "tough years". Maybe next time Ralphie could run the bases?
