Little Johnny tough to figure out?
Hmm….what’s going on in that head of his??
Well now…..aren’t we just filled with sports this week? Today we went to the AZ Diamondbacks new facility over on Pima and Indian Bend. Beautiful sports park……and a hot day for a baseball game!
Our nephew, Santiago, is in the 16 yr old Club Baseball tournament and we LOVE to watch him play. Do you remember when we went to Omaha, Nebraska for his tourney? His team won IT ALL!!!!! They won another tournament and are un-stoppable!!
And this weekend is MORE games!!
These kids have gotten huge….and they are POWER HITTERS!! (Gee, I hope that is Santiago….they all look the same after a while)
I decided that I needed some water, so we went to the concession stand…… Aquafina (glorified tap water) is $4.00 a bottle….( I took off the sticker so it would look designer )…
And I think it is a law that you have to have Crackerjack at the ball game….so we got some of that too……(yep, $4.00 Crackerjack) and the prize just turned out to be a stupid test….’a guess who I am’ test….IT’S SUMMER!!! NO TESTS!!! (btw…I looked at the back of the stupid book and the answer was Susan B. Anthony) Stupid test…
Oh!! And WE WON!!!! 9 – 4.……so there are two more games Saturday and one on Sunday.
GO ARIZONA TOROS!!!!!!!!
MARCH MADNESS!!!!!!!!! Now here is some basketball scoop….
RUMOR HAS IT THAT THE PHRASE ‘MARCH MADNESS’ WAS COINED BY HENRY V. PORTER IN 1939 TO DESCRIBE AN ILLINOIS HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL TOURNEY. BRENT MUSBERGER FIRST USED IT DURING NCAA COVERAGE IN 1982 CAUSING A LEGAL BATTLE ALMOST AS INSANE AS THE PLAYOFFS!
EVERYONE FINALLY WORKED THINGS OUT AND THE MADNESS WAS OFFICIAL! THERE ISN’T A GOOD RECORD OF WHO FIRST CALLED THE PLAYOFFS “THE BIG DANCE” BUT IT DOES DESCRIBE THE ACTION!!!!
SPEAKING OF BIG DANCE….CHECK THIS OUT!!
I’m not allowed to speak during the tournament, which is a LOVELY time for me to do internet shopping without troubling anyone……win/win……..
Here are a few examples that a wife can use to try to ‘speak’ to her husband during this critical month….
Choose your words carefully….hum the ESPN theme song ….. be creative! And if all else fails….LEAVE FOR A MONTH! HE WON’T KNOW YOU’RE GONE! Just leave plenty of drinks in the fridge, and chips on the table. This could be the much needed YOU time….work it, sister!!
