Rockin' Rockies

I grew up in North Carolina, so I'm accustomed to sports rivalries. As far as I'm concerned, there is no greater match up than UNC v. Duke. We follow basketball and football religiously. But baseball? Not so much. The Durham Bulls play down the street, but there isn't a Major League team for miles. Any allegiance to a baseball club comes from my dad, who grew up in Massachusetts, and pulls for the Red Sox. He has his fingers crossed, hoping that there will be an upset or two in Cleveland. My mom, who grew up in Denver, rarely has a dog in the fight. But this year things are different. The Guras are hoping for Red Sox v. Rockies. Are you?
