It's been a crappy year for the Colorado Rockies. Injuries, poor performance on the field and misspelling player names for promotional giveaways have all but ruined the season.
As of Saturday night, you can add a new calamity to the list of Rockies problems--though this one wasn't entirely their fault.
Saturday night's game versus the Cincinnati Reds was postponed because of a water main break outside Coors Field. The break caused most of the stadium to lose water pressure, making the bathroom's inoperable and concession stands all but useless.
The game was rescheduled for Sunday night as part of a day-night doubleheader. The two teams already were slated to play at 2 pm (mountain time) and the Rockies are slated to retire former star Todd Helton's jersey at that time.
Tickets for Saturday nights game will carry over for the Sunday night game--but not Sunday afternoon's version...
