Denver Sports Omelette: Rocktober is for snow angels at Coors Field in 2019


Today is a sad day, baseball fans. The 2019 season is over after the Nationals beat the Astros 6-2 on Wednesday night in Game 7 of the World Series.

Even though the Rockies missed the postseason this year, there was still a little Rocktober magic from Colorado’s social media team and owner Dick Monfort.

During the recent cold snap in the Mile High City, Rockies social media team tweeted out a challenge to get 5,280 retweets — and as a reward, the boss would make a snow angel on the field.

Well, Twitter won again. Rockies owner Dick Monfort joined Julian Valentin, the director or brand management and social media, for a snow angel party down at 20th and Blake.

It was all in good fun, and you have to give props to Monfort for joining in. Make sure to check out the video of the dueling snow angels here.

Next time we’ll ask for more retweets…
