Yep, they’re out there. There’s a group that simply can’t stand the Colorado Rockies or anything that has to do with the team … yet they still have a decal on their back windshield or a picture of a Coors Field sunset on their Facebook page. Go figure.
They’re the group that reads the boxscore and tells you how bad the team is and asks, “Why do I even bother?” They’re the group who reminds you of “the good old days” when Rocktober brought Denver together … and then quickly tells you that that will never happen again. They’re the group that when Jhoulys Chacin or Kyle Kendrick when a game with their new teams in 2017, they’ll tell you the Rockies should’ve never gotten rid of them. Yeah, they’re that delusional.
This group is also the ones that will wear a Nolan Arenado jersey by wondering out loud, “If he’d really hit as many homers with the New York Yankees or Boston Red Sox … because you know he’s going to play there some day, right?” The team is too old or too young (depending on the day).
They’re also the ones who wear a Rockies jersey … but then switch into their Cubs, Dodgers or Giants gear when another of “their favorite teams” come to town. They’ll sing along to Charlie Blackmon’s walkup music (toniiiiiiiiight) and then cheer when he flies out.
Please, we beg of you, don’t be this fan.
