Sports memories, selling cheap
Broncos fans distraught over the team's disintegration over the past three weeks are likely taking a break from all things sports today and probably tomorrow.
But for those of you who can't get enough pain, Opening Day for the 2009 Colorado Rockies is only 98 days away, and the home opener against the Philadelphia Phillies is only 102 days away.
Will the team be able to return to 2007 form without Matt Holliday or will they continue their miserable ways into the near future? Hard to know, but Major League Baseball has already forgotten that one glorious playoff run, at least when it comes to souvenirs.
For instance, 2007 NLCS Rockies vs. Arizona Diamondbacks caps, formerly $22.99, are now priced to sell at $9.97! Car flags and other souvenirs commemorating that season have also been reduced significantly. A $75.99 banner is now $19.97 for instance, while a $54.99 hoodie is only $29.97. So get your memories fast.
They can be quickly crushed. - Jonathan Shikes
