From Irving Berlin's lyrics:
What'll I do with just a photograph
To tell my troubles to?
When I'm alone
With only dreams of you
That won't come true
What'll I do?
Now what'll I do? Where do I go from here? I'm so confused! For whom do I cheer? Which team? I just can't......
...I can't believe this!! My two 'home teams' won. Both teams that are now pitted against each other for the division title this season are teams I had the privilege of going to their games since the franchises were infantile! The Arizona Diamondbacks swept their playoff series last night! Altho, I was fretting the D'Backs pitcher; I thought he was terrible, and couldn't understand just why they kept him in, playing! Guess Mr. Melvin knows best. *shrug* Do I cheer with this home team? [We were living in Arizona when the D'backs came alive as a franchise and formed a winning team---they beat the Yankees in the World Series in 2001!! That was a fantastic team back then!! Wow, I can still see the winning hit in the 7th game!!!] Last night, they swept the playoff games ---they did the clean sweep with the Chicago Cubs!!
Then, there's "my" ROX [Colorado Rockies]!! I lived in Colorado from 1954-1995 ...41 years! I grew up in Colorado. I graduated in Colorado. I married in Colorado...my kids were born there...my whole livelihood was in this state. Up until hubby retired and we moved to the warm climes of Arizona. I saw the first game ever for the Rockies. We traveled to Tucson from our home in Colorado each Spring break to watch a few of the Spring Training games....I've been an avid follower of the Rockies ever since! Then, when we moved to Tucson, we were just minutes from their training field! And when the new TEP park was completed, we attended most home games for the D'Backs and then their 'off or travel days'...we attended the Rockies games at the Reid Park [Hi Corbett Field]! Last night --another clean sweep against the Phillies.
What a dilemma I'm in! Who to choose? I just can't pick sides. I'll be happy to see either team in the World Series! But deep down, I think, I feel more strongly for my Colorado home team. The D'Backs, as I said, have been there done this!! They have a World Series Title. The players of that era, six years ago, have their diamond rings! Colorado has yet to go to a Fall Classic! I think secretly, deeply, I will quietly root for my ROX!! [And if they DO whip D'backs rattles---I'll cry. No, I'll probably sob!!!]
So, come October 11th--I'll be in front of the TV. I'll be wearing my purple Rockies garb and have my D'Back's snake and rattle. The clamour I make will be just as if I were in the stadium personally!! I can't wait. Bring it on!!!!!
The first division championship game? Pitchers? My two favorites...oh lordy, ---Brandon Webb [Az] and Jeffrey Francis [Co]--- Two of the best all around, this season!!!
Funny story behind this all, is, at the beginning of the season, I joked! I joked to hubby, suggesting that the D'Backs and Rockies were gonna be pitted against each other in the playoff games! He laughed and snubbed the idea. He swore the Rockies wouldn't get far. Well, now here they are, here we are---a little joke turned to reality. NOW what'll I do? *sigh* Awwwwwwww, what the heck!!! Come on Rockies!!! Be strong like you've been all season...tear the rattlers off the D'Backs tails!!! [did I just say that]? Hope I didn't jinx them. I've been known to do that.
