Kiss Your World Series Chances Goodbye Rockies

What are the Rockies thinking? Nothing like taunting the Baseball gods. The Rockies are trying to trademark the term "Rocktober" so nobody, except them, can commercialize the term. So instead of focusing on winning their first World Series, they are focusing on expanding the bottom line.

I haven't seen such a blatant tempting of fate since the 2002 World Series when Dusty Baker called Russ Ortiz back to the mound to present him with the ball in Game 6. Usually, you want to do this after you have won the game and the Series. Oh yeah, the Angels rallied that game and went on to win the Series.

You can check out the full story on the Rockies at ESPN.

The only people who should make money off Rocktober is ZEPPELIN, dude.

Now, if you will all excuse me, I'm off to pound the drum beat to "When The Levee Breaks" on the walls to my cubicle.
