So, some genius figured out that we’ve been without rain in Phoenix longer than we’ve been without baseball. Big deal – we live in a desert, and if we wanted rain all the time we’d be in Seattle. But that’s another story.
Spring has officially returned with the first day of spring training! The Diamondbacks won against the White Sox 9-2. I’ve been a big D-Backs fan since the franchise was first announced, although I have to admit I’ve been a bit of a fair weather fan since Bob Brenly was fired. I didn’t quite keep up with the team last season and didn’t get to watch very many games. I plan to correct that deficiency this season, and will get caught up on the new lineup at a great blog dedicated to the Diamondbacks – AZ Snake Pit. Check it out.
