Colorado Rockies welcome Vic Fangio to Denver with perfect tweet
The Colorado Rockies welcomed Vic Fangio to Denver with a perfect tweet on Thursday night.
Fangio was hired as head coach of the Denver Broncos this week following a lengthy career as an assistant coach. One thing that’s been circulating about the 60-year-old is how his presence in a city coincides with success for the local MLB team. He shared something about that during his introductory press conference:

The Rockies took note and sent a funny tweet about the “Vic Fangio Championship Baseball Streak.”
Here’s to keeping The Vic Fangio Championship Baseball Streak alive.
Welcome to Denver, Coach!

Fangio’s streak is pretty wild. The Houston Astros went to the World Series in Fangio’s final year with the Texans; the San Francisco Giants won the World Series in three of the five years Fangio was in the Bay Area (one at Stanford, four with the 49ers); and the Chicago Cubs won their first World Series in over 100 years during Fangio’s second year with the Bears.
Did we mention that the Rockies have never won a World Series? Maybe now will be their time. The Broncos are hoping Fangio will bring similar success to them too, by the way.
