Scenes from Coors Field: 4-27-2012

I’ve lived in Colorado for the better part of the last 15 years.  When I was 25, I left my cushy-but-boring job at WWOR-TV to branch out and join a broadcast software company in Colorado Springs.  I didn’t miss ‘OR all that much, but I did miss all the free Mets tickets.  While I haven’t lived in Jersey since 1996, my rooting interests have remained in the Tri-State Area.  So I always relish the chance to see the Mets play on the road once a year in Denver.

The Mets were back in town April 27-29th this year, so I made sure to get tickets to the games on Friday and Sunday. (What about Saturday, you ask?  Let’s just say I was distracted by a semi-abandoned race track, German cars, and Italian food.)

So far, it’s shaping up to be a season of many one-run games — low-scoring, one-run games, that is. That means every move, mistake, and clutch hit is magnified. It also means that the Mets have an extremely slim margin for error, and every seemingly little execution is paramount.
