Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

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

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
