Denver Post Ad Thanks Todd Helton

Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

I’ll tell you what, as we all spend the day gearing up for a highly anticipated game tonight at Coors Field, a lot of people are using #17 in excellent ways to honor Todd Helton.

Start with this ad in this morning’s Denver Post (tweet/pic courtesy of Troy Renck):

That’s well done, as is the work from the grounds crew to get #17 on the field in a number of places for Helton’s final game at Coors Field (both tweets/pics courtesy of the Colorado Rockies Twitter feed):

A while back Tracy Ringolsby suggested that the Rockies should retire Helton’s number tonight, in his final game at Coors Field, rather than feel the need to let a certain amount of time pass. If all the #17′s around Denver point towards that happening tonight, I would be good with that.
