The 2020 Colorado Rockies and Forgetting Sarah Marshall: A Comparison
By Kevin Larson
Let’s just go to Hawaii and forget about how terrible the offseason has been for Colorado Rockies fans. It lied to us. It was terrible. It had different plans for our future than we thought, especially with the recent developments of the season being delayed. We were building it up and we were doing so well, since the Rockies reached the playoffs in back-to-back years! Now, here we are just hoping for another chance to get back there. Were we hoping for a bright future? Of course. But what we’re receiving? Pretty dark and ominous if you ask me.
Forgetting Sarah Marshall is easily one of my favorite movies. I can watch it at any time, all the way through, no matter where or when. It is, to me, The Greatest Romcom ever. And recently, I realized just how similar it is to the story of the 2020 Colorado Rockies.
So let’s dive in and see just how similar they really are. Who’s Peter? Who’s Sarah Marshall? What character is Jeff Bridich? Can Paul Rudd save the day? Or will we be kicked out of the Kapua Suite by Dakota Fanning’s people? Let’s start with some character comparisons.
Fair warning: When watching some of the clips I’m including in this article, remember that Forgetting Sarah Marshall is rated R and some of them will contain vulgarity. Your kids will love the language but I know you may not. Just a heads up! Also, SPOILER ALERT is in order.
