In Honor of a Hero

As you've all heard, I'm sure, Todd Helton will be retiring come the end of the 2013 season, which will hopefully not end with Colorado in last place. Thankfully, I've seen Helton and his Rockies in person several times over the years and watched from afar as they stormed through the 2007 Postseason only to be swept by Boston. Through his awesome 2000 season (.372 BA, 216 H, 59 2B) and his abysmal 2012 campaign (69 G, .238 BA, 57 H), I've cheered on the Toddfather. 

There will be others (take a look at my PC page), but none with the loyalty, desire and drive as Helton. 

Thank you, Todd, for all the memories! You will be missed!
