Oooooooohhhhh Helllooooo


Well...kind of. 

We're 9 days away from Opening Day and I'm pleased to announce that The Rocks will be having DAILY stuff aka "content" starting NEXT MONDAY! I'll be shooting The Pop-Up daily and STILL working on the podcast stuff which will most likely be a video component as well. I've figured out how to manage my time better so I'm ready to blow this thing up. 

The goal of this is just to have some fun during the season. I don't ever plan on being negative with the team and just wanna put some positive stuff out there and be lighthearted. So get ready cause we're amping this up. TIME TO TAKE BACK THE WEST!

HOLY CRAP! So on a whim I just kinda decided to ACTUALLY do the thing and make this site and I DID NOT expect the amazing response from Angel fans. I'm actually FLOORED. This is probably what Trout feels like every time he steps on to the plate except I'm Hispanic, prob like 150 more pounds than him and I can barely hit a softball.

I do want to rexplain that this site is going to be nothing but a positive/comedic take on the team and have some fun. I'm not trying to breakdown stats, I don't want to just complain and crap on the team when they come on hard times and I DEFINITELY don't want to get players to hate this thing. I want to just have some fun and make some ridiculous stuff in the process.

A ton of you are asking how you can help and to be quite honest, I'm kind of just playing this by ear. Think right now, I might need a comedic writer or two to help write some stuff when the Angels are doing something and help when I actually go out to shoot things when the season starts. So here's what I'm currently looking for:

  • Graphics person to figure out a logo/shirt/video designs
  • Podcast crew to chat once a week about the state of the Angels and have some fun
  • Possibly a little film crew when I go out to shoot stuff when the season rolls around

But most immportantly, I basically just need you to spread the word. You just RTing the videos, the site and basically just about this is gonna go A LONG WAYS. The power of the internet is incredible and Angel/baseball fans never cease to amaze me when they support something.

That being said, let's have some fun. This thing is just getting off and we already gor 5k views on a video that took like an hour and a half to put together so imagine what we can do when we start doing some fun shit. PLEASE follow the new Twitter and Facebook accounts and to be the first int he know about everything! Oh and those pictures are all shot by me. I'll probably make an IG too and take photos at games.

Welcome to The Rocks!

Felt like Sean Connery typing that out. Anyway, WELCOME TO THE ROCKS! A new digital site to find all things Angels with a fun, comedic and I guess dorky spin! My name is Ricardo and I can't thank you enough for coming to this thing and seeing how we grow this bad boy.

First and foremost, I just wanna say whatever this thing becomes is dependent on how Angel fans feel about the crap I'm putting out. I'm not the funniest guy in the world nor the smartest baseball mind but I'm super passionate about this team and for the past 8-10 years I've been Tweeting about them because they are my life blood. That and pizza but that's a whole different story.

So what exactly is this thing gonna be? Literally like an hour ago, the Angels signed Shohei Ohtani to a deal and I just decided to just go all in myself and start this site. What I plan to do is make some videos about the Angels, write/photoshop some ridiculous crap and possibly interview some fans and players in the process. I'm playing it by ear but I plan on getting a little crew together for a podcast and maybe some writers to write some fun stuff for the site. To me, growing a community and having fun is my biggest agenda. 

Here are some initial ideas I have and hopefully you guys look forward to em:

Weekly Podcast: Getting a crew together to talk about Angels and maybe some other random shit while slanging some brews

Pop-Up: Quick 1-2 minute show about what the team is up to

Know Your Opponent: 1-2 minute video about teams the Angels are going up against

And probably some other garbage.


This site should be a lot of fun and I hope you guys can support it along the way whether it's telling some friends about it or watching some stuff. This isn't gonna be a place to find in-depth analysis of crap because I'm not that kind of guy. Sites like AngelsWin, Halos Heaven and a few others do a whole better job with that stuff. I'll be spending the majority of the weekend figuring this thing out so tweet to me @iBlogBetter if you have any ideas for shows or how you can help! Thanks a ton and LET'S GET THAT WS TROPHY BACK TO ANAHEIM!
