    The Rockies, School, Recording…

    The Rockies

    So, the Rockies lost the game that I was writing about below – but then they went on to win the next 2 against Arizona to make it to a tie-breaker against the San Diego Padres to get the Wild Card birth for the playoffs. They won the game against San Diego in the 13th inning. It was a ridiculous game – I listened to it on the radio (part of the time at my nephew’s 7th birthday party – Happy Birthday, Josiah!).

    During the 8th inning of that game with San Diego, with the final outcome still in doubt, I got online and bought tickets for Colorado’s first home playoff game, should they make it to the playoffs. The Rocks made it and played against the Philidelphia Phillies in a best 3 out of 5 game series. The first two games were at Philly – and the Rockies won them both! So by the time they made it back to CO, they only had to win 1 of the next 3 games to advance. Of course, for my own sake, I was hoping they would win the first game, since that was the game I had tickets for. My bro’ Eric came with and we sat in the upper deck in the cold and gusty winds… but it was worth it to see 50-something-thousand fans screaming and waving towels in the air when the Rockies won the game to secure their spot in the NLCS (National League Championship Series – which means the Rocks are only 4 wins from the World Series). As Eric said, “I’ve never been more proud to be part of a crowd.”


    There’s not much to say about this. I have to be in Denver for class in 8 and a half hours for my 8 o’clock class. It takes a little more than an hour and a half to get there in the morning, which means I won’t be sleeping much tonight. I’m about to hit the busy time of the school year when I’m supposed to have been working on papers for a couple of weeks but haven’t been so I’ll have to do it all in a week’s time. Pretty exciting.


    I keep telling people that we’re going to be done with our recording by the end of October… but this is entirely dependent on a few things: For one, I’ve been nursing this low level cold for almost 4 weeks – and it has my voice sounding fairly poor. If we’re going to make a recording, it seems like it would be better to be singing at my full potential. Also, we would love to have some guest vocalists on some of the tracks – the issue here is that it is hard to coordinate schedules between just me and Don (our sound engineer), let alone after adding other people into the equation.

    So if you’re praying persons out there, pray that this sickness would leave me (my pastor says that we always pray for God to heal major things or acute pain like headaches, but we just figure colds will go away…); pray that timing and coordination would work out for getting people into the studio (and patience – I always want things done when I want them done – God usually has different and better plans; and if it’s worth doing, it’s worth waiting for) – and that God would give us platforms to use our music for entertaining people and having opportunities to communicate hope and encouragement to people; pray that I would be able to keep track of my school assignments and focus on getting them done when I need to…

    …and pray that the Rockies make it to the World Series – ’cause if they do, there won’t be a baseball fan out there who can deny that miracles happen!
