Baseball can be a strange game. Or maybe more appropriately, strange things can happen at a baseball game. Perhaps that is one of the reasons why baseball is so popular in America and why thousands of fans will flock to the JUCO World Series in Grand Junction over the next several days. And so to celebrate the arrival of the much anticipated Junior College World Series, here is a look at some completely bizarre baseball happenings.
At the time, it seemed like must-see TV. And I'm sure I'm not alone in saying that. So many of us grew up watching Captain Kangaroo with all of the regular guests like Mr. Green Jeans, Mr. Bunny Rabbit, Mr. Moose, and Dancing Bear among others. The estate of Bob Keeshan, who entertained kids for 30 years on TV as Captain Kangaroo, was auctioned off Tuesday in Los Angeles and grossed more than $711,000.
For many of the thousands of people who will attend games during the 2013 Alpine Bank Junior College World Series that gets under way Saturday at Suplizio Field, they have been there, done that. They are JUCO veterans. For others, though, it's a brand new experience and they have no idea what to expect. And so here is some information and tips that will help you - and others - have the most enjoyable time at JUCO.
KOOL 107.9 is giving you a chance to win tickets to one of several awesome concerts at Hudson Gardens in Littleton. The concert line up includes Little River Band, Kenny Loggins, Foreigner, STYX, Boz Scaggs, Three Dog Night and others. Several of these concerts will sell out.
It doesn't matter how many times you've been to the circus, every time is a brand new experience. While there may be an element of familiarity with each performance, it never ceases to be fun and exciting, regardless of your age. That's one of the reasons why the Shrine Circus comes to Grand Junction every year performing to big crowds under the big top.
Okay, so maybe the headline is a bit of a dichotomy, because when it comes to JUCO there aren't a lot of good options for parking. But, it is what it is. A select few will be able to park in the main lot outside the stadium, and for all the games except the Monday night fireworks game, there will be additional parking in the field between the left field bleachers and the golf course. So, what's the next best option.
The Rock and Roll world still mourns the death of Doors' keyboardist and founding member Ray Manzarek, who died Monday after a battle with bile duct cancer.

One of my favorite events to watch during the Summer Olympics is gymnastics. I never cease to be amazed at the strength, agility, and balance of these athletes doing things that I could only do in my dreams. (not that I actually dream about such things...) Now I am completely amazed to discover gymnast Johanna Quaas, who also does things that are far beyond me. What is significant here is the fact that Johanna is 86 years old.
