Rockies Fever?

Well, believe it or not, with just about 10 days left in the MLB season, the Colorado Rockies are actually still in the hunt for a playoff spot! After completing a 4-game sweep of the Dodgers, the Rox stand 4.5 games behind the Padres who simply keep winning. It's a long shot, but it's still a shot. The Rox start a 3-game series in San Diego this weekend and could make some noise.

Also, there is talk around town and even in SOME national media about Matt Holliday as a candidate for NL MVP. He leads the NL in hits (205) and RBI's (131), is 2nd in batting average (.339) and slugging percentage (.614), is 4th in home runs (36) and runs (112), is 8th in on-base percentage (.402) and I think I've made my point. As impressive as this all looks, there is no way in hell he will win the MVP. And so, I give you a new top 11 list!

Top 11 Reasons Matt Holliday Will NOT Win the MVP:

11) He plays in Colorado
10) He plays in Colorado
9) He plays in Colorado
8) He plays in Colorado
7) He plays in Colorado
6) He plays in Colorado
5) He plays in Colorado
4) He plays in Colorado
3) He plays in Colorado
2) He plays in Colorado
1) He plays in Colorado

Could Rockies' short stop Troy Tulowitzki win NL Rookie of the Year? Um, see above!

Either way, go Rox - make some noise and scare some teams!

OK, a little late on this post here, but my parents celebrated their 50 year wedding anniversary on 8/31 (ironically, my brother-in-law's 50th birthday as well)! One of the gifts from the kids (that would be me, my brother, my sister and our spouses) was a framed picture of the grandkids above. From left, Claire, Arie, Rachel, Luc, Danny.

Reward for Reading This Post!

It's a MONKEY! OK, not really, but sorta!

Anyway, the new look blog? Anyone? Bueller?

Question: Is there a BETTER reality TV show than Beauty and the Geek?

Answer: HELLS NO! The geeks are beyond geeky and the beauties are dumber than rocks! Watching Dave (the LARPER -Live Action Role Player) enter the room with such theatrics(he also carries duct tape on his belt - bonus), and listening to Katie explain that her fake boobs are an investment because men will buy her so many drinks that they will eventually pay for themselves (and her talents include finding Waldo in the "Where's Waldo" books), and Luke not be able to finish sentences because he gets so nervous, and Natalie explaining she is the Ultimate Hooters Girl (not to mention that she can tie a cherry stem in a knot with her tongue, but who can't?) - it just doesn't get any better, or real. Seriously, this is the only reality show where people are THEMSELVES and learn how to treat people equally. It's painful and brilliant all at once. Whoda thunk Ashton Kutcher was such a genius?

Random TV thoughts, other than a quickly coming Fall Preview!

Why is Taco Bell using "I'll Melt With You" as a song for food? What is this world coming to? Wait, there's more...

Viva Viagra? Seriously???

The Hives are actually in Nike commercial that I've never actually seen on TV?

How freaky is the Heineken girl with the keg coming out of her gut?

Whatever happened to the sitcom?

Could Britney been any more lethargic? Hmm - idea for the next Freak Train: dress in black sequence panties and bra with fishnets and blond wig and wander around stage to Britney's new song as if I almost care!

Pam the receptionist is single! Nice! Wait, I'm not, so someone I know better go after her.

Ridiculously fun DVD's: Hot Fuzz, Borat, Blades of Glory.

Our Honda CRV is effing AWESOME! I love the way it drives, the mileage, the iPod plugin, and everything else about it!

Oh, and speaking about the iPod - I finally have all of my CD's on my Pod - almost 13,000 songs. It's so freakin' cool to have all of the music that I own at my fingertips. We listened to it on shuffle play all the way to Telluride and back last-last weekend.

Finally, the boy is eating cereal now! Wanna see? OK, then HERE'S YOUR REWARD - HIS FIRST ATTEMPT AT EATING CEREAL AND GETTING SPOON-FED! Please excuse the bouncy camera - I was laughing too hard!

The All New PAFC!

Well, HEY - I changed the whole look and feel of the blog! What do you think?

The only REAL problem so far is I lost almost all of my links - there are some I can't remember, and would like to add back. If I linked to you and don't have you listed anymore, don't take it personally! I'm just kinda, ya know, dumb.

Anyway, let me know your thoughts and send me some fun linky-poos!

How about a few Luc pics while I'm here?

Mmm - cereal!

Nekkid baby!!!
