So, how have the Rockies kept it going? Well, there's some evidence that this team is the God Squad. We all know that in God Todd trusts by the huge wooden cross that Helton wears, but a pretty interesting article in USA Today from last June, talks about the entire team's Christlove:
Behind the scenes, they quietly have become an organization guided by Christianity — open to other religious beliefs but embracing a Christian-based code of conduct they believe will bring them focus and success.
Of course, with our state's overload of megachurches and evangelicals, this all makes sense. The Rockies somewhat disputed the characterization, and after this article came out last year, God--or at least the baseball gods--turned his back on the Rox, who ended the 2006 season tied for last place (with the Diamondbacks).
Well, can we still pray for a win and not-too-cold weather tonight?
