It’s called TWH – Tweeting While High.
The jokes wafted around the internet like a never-ending punch line that ended with bloodshot eyes and snacks, lots of snacks.
And when all was said and done, no Denver team was spared from the bud of the joke.
First, the 98-loss Rockies became laughable for other reasons.
“Major League Baseball announced today that all Seattle Mariners and Colorado Rockies games will now start at 4:20 PM,” @MLBHumor tweeted.
“In recent breaking news, Giants P Tim Lincecum has requested a trade to the Colorado Rockies,” a swarm of people, like @DerekPutnam, tweeted about the two-time world champion, whose long hair and carefree image has drawn speculation.
Outside the smolder of jokes, the Rockies are deciding whether Walt Weiss or Matt Williams will be their next manager … but it’s all gooooood.
And then there are the Nuggets, who were wrapping up a 109-97 home-opening win Tuesday when the amendment was passed.
“BREAKING: With Colorado making marijuana legal for recreational use, the entire NBA has demanded a trade to the #Nuggets,” @NotSportsCenter tweeted.
Currently, smoking weed is still prohibited in the NBA …
And yes, believe it, even straight-laced Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning was thrown into the mix.
“As Colorado legalizes marijuana we now now why Peyton Manning wanted to give away TWO million pizzas,” @JPosnanski tweeted, inferring No. 18’s transaction that landed him 21 Papa John’s restaurants in the Denver area. “Man can read a defense.”
So be careful out there. Danger may be lurking with every click of your mouse, so try to take the edge off however you can.
