Its loud in Philly

After we won yesterday, I just relaxed, went to dinner, went home and went to bed.

There were a few people at the restaurant that recognized me, but everybody was very cordial. They didn?t want to have any deep conversations. It was basically, "Take it easy on the Phillies." They were nice.

During the game, it was nice being at the ballpark among the fans. It was so loud that you didn?t get to hear anybody individually saying the bad stuff at you.

My teammates didn?t kid me too much about the triple yesterday, but I have speed. I was flying. ? Yeah, right. I hit it to center field and it ended up in right. That?s how I got my triple.

Todd, I have been a fan since the Sky Sox. We went to games every week, and were always impressed with what you brought to the field. Not long after you went to the show, we moved as well. I have worked at Coors Field now for 6 years and I am so glad to still be watching you play. This whole team “R”ocks and it has been amazing. So happy for you, the team, the whole organization, and your family. Best of luck, go Rox!

We love you, Todd! Still keeping an eye on Gameday at work! You’re my favourite!

Cordial? Nice? Are you sure you’re in Philly?

Nice sense of humor todd I guess you were lucky that the phillies have a hitter friendly park and when that ball ended up inright field, you could have tied your shoe at second and still made it to third. I kid.
You’re amazing in baseball and out. I’m amazed sometimes how much quality you have with your at-bats and I’m sure your teammates are inspired by that immensely.

My 10 year old daughter has a picture with you when she visited Coors Field with her softball team. She displays the picture proudly in her room. My 8 year old son is totally pumped to have the Rockies in the playoffs. I work from home with the radio on hanging on every crack of the bat. Keep swinging for the fences!

Todd,

Congrats on making the post season. Beat the Phillies!

Congratulations Todd to you and your teammates. My boys have grown up with you and the team… They have enjoyed the chance to meet you and the rest of the team at the last five picture days along with 17 games this season (#18 this Saturday). You guys are a class act and thanks for being positive roll models. Good luck in the playoffs… As I write this, the 10th run has just scored in Game 2.

Having been Todd Helton’s cab driver(and many other pro athletes), I was very happy for the team although I questioned that Matt touched the plate for the clincher.I have Todd”s autograph which i got from him when i gave him a cab ride, and I completely fell in love with him when he was in my cab(I am a woman cab driver by the way) when they were here in Boston.he has a very sexy accent which is not a colorado one. i hear different accents all day driving cab and pick up on them.By the way i gave a rock star a ride once and got free tickets and back stage passes later on from him so i have had some great cab rides.Susan

Two games down!

How you feeling?

Keep on Rocking. 🙂

Todd–you are my idol…i’m waiting till I can grow that beard just like you!!! Anyways I have a picture of you with me when I was a little kid during one of those picture days at Coors. I guess what i’m trying to say is that I appreciate what you do so much! I have one question for you though…Did you ever learn anything from playing with Larry Walker in your earlier days with Colorado?
Good luck in the playoffs!

Todd,
I asked my 9 yr old what baseball player he most wanted to meet and he said “Babe Ruth”. When I asked him what player still playing he wanted to meet he said, “Todd Helton”.

My family is so happy for you and the team right now.

Good luck and God Bless

Steve, Tammy, and Gabriel

CONGRATS!!! The team winning is a dream come true. We’ve always said that the Rockies would be back on top( and would get lauged at by Sox and Yankees fans) but we knew you all could do it! Keep up the good work, relax, and have fun!!!!!!!!
