Okay, so full disclosure, I wrote this GDT at 6:00, thinking that the Colorado Rockies were going to lose 2-0 as the game headed into the ninth inning. It is now 6:50 and the Rockies are in extras with the Brewers tied at two.

You can thank me in the comments, that’s what the GDT is for!

I expect a formal apology from the Rockies to the Avalanche sometime after the Avs beat the Minnesota Wild tonight for forcing baseball and hockey fans to pick between their two favourite sports.
