In February, shortly before the Colorado Rockies' season got underway, first baseman Todd Helton was busted for drunk driving. Helton wound up retiring at the end of the mediocre campaign, and now, Rockies co-owner Charlie Monfort has been taken into custody on suspicion of the same crime.

Monfort and his brother, Dick, have been under heat for allowing the Rockies to linger in lousiness, and fans on Facebook didn't ease up on their criticism in light of Charlie's troubles.

The Colorado Rockies may have lost to the San Diego Padres 7-5 last night. But one fan who attended the game definitely left feeling like a winner, even if he got a little wet in the process.

The Rockies' Dexter Fowler hit a foul ball, and the damn thing landed smack dab in the guy's beer cup -- after which he gleefully sucked out enough suds to dislodge it and held up his prize to the crowd's delight.

See the amazing video below.

We admit it. After taking one look at the pitching staff of the 2013 Colorado Rockies, we thought the team would set records -- for ineptitude. But thus far, we've been happily surprised -- no, thrilled -- by all aspects of the team, which currently has a 5-1 record and sits atop the National League West standings.

The fans captured on opening day by photographer Danielle Lirette never had any doubts. Check out a sampling of her shots below, and click to see our complete "Fans of the Rockies' Opening Day" slide show.

Todd Helton has been a mainstay for the Colorado Rockies for a long, long time, holding steady while other teammates screwed up on the diamond and off. Which means it's about time for him to have a gaffe of his own.

Like, for instance, a DUI arrest this morning, which generated an ultra-embarrassing mug shot and a major Helton mea culpa.

Last week, the Denver Post announced a desire to sell its 7.3 percent stake in the Colorado Rockies -- an asset acquired due to the Rocky Mountain News's 2009 closure. A knowledgeable source tells Westword this move was motivated by dire financial problems at the Post -- ones serious enough that they could lead to bankruptcy. But Post CEO Ed Moss denies this assertion while highlighting what he sees as progress in improving the paper's economics.

Onetime Regis High baseball coach Walt Weiss will no longer be the second-most famous person at the school -- after Olympian Missy Franklin. The ex-Colorado Rockies shortstop has just been hired to manage his former (and currently sorry) squad.

Does that mean he'll hang onto the astonishing Castle Rock property that landed him on the TopTenRealEstateDeals.com list of best MLB players' homes for sale, featured in photos below?

Tori Black.
Among other talents, porn star Tori Black is known for, well, blowing, as evidenced by her win in the Best Oral Sex Scene category at the 2011 AVN Awards. As such, she'd fit in perfectly on the Colorado Rockies pitching staff, which is also expert at blowing...leads, as happened again in an agonizingly predictable 10-8 loss to the mediocre Oakland A's.
