NL wildcard winner / Playoff seed: No. 4 / NLDS opponent: Philadelphia Phillies
The Colorado Rockies and their fans have gotten a lot of mileage out of "Rocktober." But I think they're limiting the use of ROCK in more words.
Here are some other possibilities, Rockies fans. Try them out!
Rockcident When a Rockies player gets hurt via groceries, an ATV or deer meat.
Playing cops and Rockers A euphemism for getting arrested for soliciting a really ugly prostitute a la Denny Neagle
Rocktopus The girlfriend of a Rockies player.
RocktoMom A former Rocktopus who has been knocked up.
Rocktogenarian A Rockies fan as old or older than Todd Helton.
Rocktogon The status of a young, star Rockies player who everyone knows will be gone one day when the team can no longer afford him. "Enjoy Matt Holliday now because he is Rocktogon."
Rocktion The practice of selling off players who are Rocktogon for whatever the team can get.
Rockward The annual ritual of switching the calendar over to November without a World Series title. "Rockward!"
