Open Thread and Ichthyomancy: Rockies at Marlins (4/29)

The Marlins once again host the Purple cladded gang from Colorado tonight.  I must say they weren't the best of guests on the first night.

Jason Vargas is scheduled for the Fish.  The Rockies are planning to send Josh Fogg to the hill.

Game time is 6:05 p.m.

Miguel Cabrera will receive his Silver Slugger award tonight.  Also it is Scratch-Off Saturday, with 100 fans in the running for an autographed WBC baseball by the Marlins participants.

If that isn't enough, it is CBS4 for $54 night:

Fans will have the opportunity to take advantage of a special ticket promotion from CBS4 and the Marlins. Starting at just $54, fans will receive four game tickets, four hot dogs, four small soft drinks and a game-used baseball.

Did I ever tell you about my interview with CBS4 while I was in Houston?  Maybe I will one day.

Since I have professed my love for Rox Girl, I would like to thank all of my friends for their critiques on the matter.  I received such encouraging responses as:  You aim too high, She is out of your league, Restraining order city, You're getting above your raising, and my favorite: Face it Dude - she is intelligent and not in a coma - you don't have a chance.

Thanks guys.  That was real helpful.

Did I mention she spoke to me? (albeit virtually)

If you would like to checkout the pulse of the Rockies faithful there is no other place to go than Purple Row

Ichthyomancy is front and center so be sure to get your picks in.  If you haven't played before, you really should - don't cost nothing.
