#Rcokies v. #Barves, the game of the year!

The Rockies and Braves are currently playing a game in, let’s say, less than ideal baseball conditions. As you can see above, today’s make-up game (after last night’s game was snowed out) could go down as one of the coldest baseball games in history.

Baseball isn’t really made for the cold weather. Imperfect contact stings the palms while all the standing around could, potentially, increase the likelyhood of strains or muscle pulls. Plus, it just looks weird.

Below is a GIF of Dan Uggla’s second inning Frozen Christmas Home Run, which really deserves further investigation.

This home run was hit in Colorado, where the home team uses the below as their logo:

This is what the hitters eye looks like at Coors Field today, as seen up close and personal after Uggla’s homer to center.

This weirdness of this game is not lost on the Rockies faithful, as some early reports pegged the first pitch attendance in the area of 200. Which is fun, right? Good thing they get to play antoher game tonight when the temperature will be, well, pretty much the same.

VERY IMPORTANT UPDATE

It is so cold steam is coming off the field like a still lake in morning. Scenes not unlike a beer commercial here at Coors Field.

  1. so weird. Why would you not dress warm and go to this game for fun? Sit wherever you want.

    70,000 Denverites? Denveronians? Denvites? will do this 8 times over the course of an NFL season.

  2. Seen on twitter:

    Someone should check the outside of coors field to see if it has turned blue.

  3. Rcockies!!

    even better than RLOLckies.

  4. It took me far longer than I’d like to admit to puzzle out the fact that the tweet has the temperature in Fahrenheit

    • the cheer I started will likely be the highlight of my year

      don’t fret about it too much :)

  5. “scenes not unlike a beer commercial,” hilarious. I don’t feel bad for them at all. The baselayers they are wearing provide heat retention and moisture wicking, plus their uniforms. Remember the Montreal, Edmonton game in 2003. That was cold
