Coors Field

The Good News: Today we went to the Rockies vs Pirates game at Coors Field with a group of friends. Everyone in the group was supporting the Rockies except Redgie & I (who are Pirates fans.) We ate Rockies Dogs (brats with sautéed peppers & onions) and had a great time catching up and visiting with our friends.
The Bad News: The Pirates played miserably and lost the game 10-1! 😦

As a result he received a $425 travel voucher from USAIR, got on a United flight that arrived home sooner than his original flight and was upgraded to First Class! Wow!
The Bad News: We didn’t win the lottery! 😦
