As this amazing baseball season ends, two unlikely teams did battle in the World Series - the come-out-of-nowhere Colorado Rockies and the comeback kids themselves, Boston Red Sox. Redsox Nation was convinced, of course, that their team should have been in the Series by virtue of fate. But the Rockies story was truly remarkable.
But did it all go to the Rockies' head? They tried to cash in on all this serendipity by trying to "own" the copyright on "Rocktober" - which is what they named their amazing phenomenon. This whole thing got out of control many years ago when Lakers coach Pat Riley copyrighted the term "Three-peat." Now everyone wants a piece of the pie.
Well, excuse me, but a few dozen radio stations have been doing their version of "Rocktober" for a few years now. And shouldn't the Rockies have focused a bit more on their to-do lists than to mess with this stupid copyright issue?
(And yes, we own still own "The Edge.")
