I have been a Rockies fan since their inception in 1993. My childhood was filled with new ways to find someone to go to a Rockies game with me. I went to college in Southern California where I was forced to defend the Rockies organization to a bunch of Dodger fans who I sometimes refer to as friends. While attending Rockies games at Dodger Stadium I have been pelted with many different objects including a Tommy Lasorda commemorative coin. I once had a bag of popcorn mixed with ketchup and mustard dumped on my head, all because I was cheering for the Rockies. I will forever love this franchise.
