Photos: Rockies fans celebrate team in first place -- and not sucking!

We admit it. After taking one look at the pitching staff of the 2013 Colorado Rockies, we thought the team would set records -- for ineptitude. But thus far, we've been happily surprised -- no, thrilled -- by all aspects of the team, which currently has a 5-1 record and sits atop the National League West standings.

The fans captured on opening day by photographer Danielle Lirette never had any doubts. Check out a sampling of her shots below, and click to see our complete "Fans of the Rockies' Opening Day" slide show.
