    • God's Hackey Sack

      12 years ago

      Cybercowboy

      So every Tuesday night that a Rockies game is broadcast, they have email the booth night, where you can email the booth and they will show and answer your question on TV. So for the last two seasons or so I would casually try to get my questions on air, if I was watching.

      After never getting my questions on air, last night I realized that I must be asking to indepth of questions, that either A) was to complex for the general Rockies viewer, or B) Was to long for them answer and explain in just a few seconds of air time per question.

      So last night I decided to dumb down my question and asked a question I already new the answer to. And I finally got my question on the air during the top of the 2nd inning. I dumbed it down and they even cut about half of my question out. Fastball saw it and even called me out about the stupid question, calling me a fame whore. He is just jealous his questions haven't been on the air.

      Today they were showing a replay of the game. So like a good fame whore, I taped it so I could see it again. I got back from class and and started watching the game again and guess what: THEY CUT OUT THE 2ND INNING WHICH CONTAINED MY EMAIL!!!!! I now have a tape of an entire baseball game minus the one inning I wanted. Just as I reached the peak of my hackey sack flight, God kicks me again. And if you think it is said that seeing and hearing my name during a Rockies game is the peak of my day/week/semester you obviously don't know me.

    • Telling the truth....

      My dad sent me this in an email today:

      Katie Couric, while interviewing a Marine sniper, asked: "What do you feel when you shoot a terrorist?"

      The Marine shrugged and replied: "Recoil."
      (Hard to fault a Marine that eloquent)

    • Nice Little Saturday...

      Cybercowboy

      Had a good day today. Me and a buddy went up in the mountains and played a little pond hockey. Nothing serious, just fun out on the pond.

      Got to go to the Mammoth game with Fastball, and Grey Ghost. Fun was had by all. Time to hit the sack to be ready for tomorrow's game.

    • Hockey Afternoon in Boulder

      12 years ago

      Cybercowboy

      Had our first hockey game this afternoon. Started the season of right with an 8-0 win. Felt good to be on the winning side of a score like that for once. Grey Ghost got a hat trick, I got the second goal. It was fun, except I started getting a cold and a hacking cough on friday. I spent the majority of the weekend sleeping and hydrating so that I could have just enough energy to play today. Playing hockey with respiratory sicknesses doesnt work well. I got by, got a goal, now I am going to go to bed and try not to die in the night.

    • Avs Penelty Box and update

      12 years ago

      Cybercowboy

      Well my family and I braved the blizzard here in Colorado last friday to go to the Avalanche game. My mom was able to get these tickets as a promotional thing for donating blood. After she bought the tickets she was entered into a drawing where the prize was to watch warm ups for the game from the Avs penelty box. Long story short, my mom won and she let me go to the penelty box instead of her. It was quite possibly one of the coolest things I have done.

      We got in the box a few minutes before warm ups started. The ice is the most beautiful ice I have ever seen, much better than that crap at CU. Adam Roach (sp?) was there. For those of you who dont know who Adam Roach is, he is the PA guy for pretty much every major sports team in Colorado. He was there and he was complaining the whole time about how he had to risk his life and come out in the blizzard for the hockey game.

      Finally the players came out for warm ups. I was super impressed. The speed of the game goes way up just from moving from the seats to the ice level, I cant imagine actually watching the game from the penelty box. Antti Laaksonen scared the crap out of me. I was leaning in toward the glass but I had my head turned looking at the net, I didnt see Laaksonen coming across center ice far boards to near and take a wrister that hit the glass right where my head was leaving a ring of snow on the glass.

      I took a ton of pictures and I will put up the best ones after I brighten them up a bit, which may be a week or two.

      For the update, not much going on. School sucks sometimes, RA sucks sometimes, but I am getting through it. Playing as much hockey as I can, I decided that drop in hockey, away from CU is much better than at CU. At CU my best drop in day probably has 2 or 3 goals, but in two drop ins away from CU (one at DU, one at the local rink) I came away with a 4 goal night and a 5 goal night. Granted it is drop in and not an actual game, but for a kid that just started skating 2 years ago, with no instruction and learning on my own, I think that is pretty good.

      Hope everyone had a great holiday. I have not been doing much other than sleeping, shoveling snow, and playing Dead Rising.

      My Dad took me to The Buckhorn Exchange last night for my 21st birthday dinner, even though my birthday was nearly a month ago. Its the greatest restaurant ever. We had rattlesnake queso dip for a starter and I had a buffalo tenderloin and an elk medalion for my main course, both probably cooked the best I have ever had. The restaurant itself is really cool its like a museum.

      Today, I get my wisdom teeth taken out. All four. Tops should be fairly routine with the exception that the roots are in my sinuses. Bottom ones are going to be the problem. They are completly horizontal to the rest of my teeth. Needless to say I will be hurting for a while.

      Thats about it in the life of Cybercowboy right now. I hope I didnt disappoint. Talk to you all later.

    • Crazy Hockey week

      Cybercowboy

      Wow....

      So this last Saturday, Goalieace was able to score us some tickets in a suite for the Avs/Blackhawks game, which was super sweet.

      Last night, me, goalieace, grey ghost, and some others went to drop in hockey at DU and I probably had one of my best nights of hockey, leaving with 4 goals (granted it was drop in)

      My family has tickets to friday night's Avs/Blues game, and the Pepsi Center just called and one person in our family gets to watch warm ups from the penelty box, as my mom entered into a drawing and won. Now I just have to beat out my sisters for the seat. More news and hopefully pics to come!!

    • Different

      So finals are done. I havent updated in a long while, and I have been thinking about what to write. Then my dad sent me this and I think it is much more important than any stupid thing I could say that would most likely be me complaining about different things. As my dad is a Marine, things like these are very dear to me an my family:


      Different Christmas Poem

      The embers glowed softly, and in their dim light, I gazed round the room and I cherished the sight.
      My wife was asleep, her head on my chest, My daughter beside me, angelic in rest.
      Outside the snow fell, a blanket of white, Transforming the yard to a winter delight.
      The sparkling lights in the tree I believe, Completed the magic that was Christmas Eve.

      My eyelids were heavy, my breathing was deep, Secure and surrounded by love I would sleep.
      In perfect contentment, or so it would seem, So I slumbered, perhaps I started to dream.
      The sound wasn't loud, and it wasn't too near, But I opened my eyes when it tickled my ear.
      Perhaps just a cough, I didn't quite know, Then the sure sound of footsteps outside in the snow.

      My soul gave a tremble, I struggled to hear, And I crept to the door just to see who was near.
      Standing out in the cold and the dark of the night, A lone figure stood, his face weary and tight.
      A soldier, I puzzled, some twenty years old, Perhaps a Marine, huddled here in the cold.
      Alone in the dark, he looked up and smiled, Standing watch over me, and my wife and my child.

      "What are you doing?" I asked without fear, "Come in this moment, it's freezing out here!
      Put down your pack, brush the snow from your sleeve, You should be at home on a cold Christmas Eve!"
      For barely a moment I saw his eyes shift, Away from the cold and the snow blown in drifts.
      To the window that danced with a warm fire's light Then he sighed and he said "Its really all right, I'm out here by choice, I'm here every night."

      "It's my duty to stand at the front of the line, That separates you from the darkest of times.
      No one had to ask or beg or implore me, I'm proud to stand here like my fathers before me.
      My Gramps died at 'Pearl' on a day in December, "Then he sighed,
      "That's a Christmas 'Gram' always remembers."

      "My dad stood his watch in the jungles of 'Nam', And now it is my turn and so, here I am.
      I've not seen my own son in more than a while, But my wife sends me pictures, he's sure got her smile."

      Then he bent and he carefully pulled from his bag, The red, white, and blue... an American flag.
      "I can live through the cold and the being alone, Away from my family, my house and my home".

      "I can stand at my post through the rain and the sleet, I can sleep in a foxhole with little to eat.
      I can carry the weight of killing another, Or lay down my life with my sister and brother."

      "Who stand at the front against any and all, To ensure for all time that this flag will not fall."
      "So go back inside," he said, "harbor no fright, Your family is waiting and I'll be all right."

      "But isn't there something I can do, at the least, Give you money," I asked, "or prepare you a feast?"
      "It seems all too little for all that you've done, For being away from your wife and your son."

      Then his eye welled a tear that held no regret, "Just tell us you love us, and never forget.
      To fight for our rights back at home while we're gone, To stand your own watch, no matter how long."

      "For when we come home, either standing or dead, To know you remember we fought and we bled.
      Is payment enough, and with that we will trust, That we mattered to you as you mattered to us."

    • DU_Stars_Fan

      14 years ago

      The ball is freaking hard, but if you're concerned about safety, don't play the game, lol. Think about it, you basically are catching a baseball hit pretty freaking hard with your bare hands (unless you are the one "lucky" guy on the field with gloves). Besides, when it's pitched/hurled at you you have no idea where it's gonna go after it hits the ground. The goal is to protect your wickets by any means necessary...if that means throwing your body in front of them occasionally, so be it. Oh ya, one other thing. When you run back and forth they kind of throw the ball directly at you, so padding helps there.
