Rockies Contributor

I'm a Colorado native, and die-hard sports fan, with the Rockies serving as my foremost obsession since their inception. When it's not baseball season, I'll watch literally every other sport with rabid interest, but I never stop counting the days until spring training. I currently reside in west central Nebraska, where I do play-by-play of local high school and community college athletics.
