Seems as though a former Cubune columnist is the source

According to the Rocky Mountain News (http://www.rockymountainnews.com/drmn/local/article/0,1299,DRMN_15_5726816,00.html), “The term actually arose in Denver nearly two years ago, if only in ‘what if?’ terms.

“The Rocky's Bernie Lincicome appears to have coined Rocktober in his sports column on Oct. 22, 2005, when he referred to a Chicago newspaper's proclamation of Soxtober, and joked about the possibility of an Astrober in Houston.

“’Denver has the easiest of these should the need ever arise,’ Lincicome wrote. ‘Rocktober.’”

Of course. Besides, have they not listened to any classic rock stations for the past 30 years there in Denver?

Rocktober has been used long before the Rockies existed.

True. It was used in the 1984 film Rocktober Blood.

I was at a nightclub in New Delhi, India a few years ago that advertised an upcoming concert called Rocktober.

I'm wondering that too. I've heard that word on rock stations in Chicago all my life. :?:

Prior to the Tribune putting up all those "SOXTOBER" posters, WSI was talking about "The Hunt for White October". Which I personally liked better.

No rush to patent the term Cubtober, I suppose.
