The Sports Illustrated 2008 Baseball Preview Issue (March 31) predicted that the Colorado Rockies would win the National League West, and beat the Mets in the first round of the playoffs. They also said that the Rockies will either sustain last year's excellence or "join the likes of Vanilla Ice, Harper Lee, Johann Pachelbel, and Bobo Holloman- overnight successes without a follow-up act."
All I have to say is, "Ice Ice Baby".
Their starting to remind me of those John Elways years when the roster included names like Sammy Winder, Vance Johnson, Gerald Willhite, Randy Robbins, Dennis Smith, Mark Jackson, etc... Those teams had some success... often times surprising everyone while they overachieved and got blown out in the Superbowl.
The current day Broncos could shock the world in 2008 if Jay Cutler turns out to be the savior that everyone hopes he will be. I hate Super Bowl blowouts, but I'd rather see the Broncos get blown out of the Super Bowl than go 7-9 and miss the playoffs again.
