Denver the Last Dinosaur is not the Rockies' mascot. But he should be.
That guy is SO MUCH COOLER than their current mascot, Dinger, the super creepy purple dinosaur who looks like he's going to murder you in your sleep. I'm so glad the Phillies are playing this series at home, away from Dinger and his nightmare inducing perma-glare.
Also, how about these unintentionally sexual theme song lyrics? "Denver, the last dinosaur! He's my friend and a whole lot more!" When you hear it as a child, you don't notice it. When you hear it as an adult, you wish you had some brain bleach handy.
Cliff Lee and Juan Nicasio will be throwing baseballs tonight. Discuss the game in the comments below.
