Son Tony has lived in the Phoenix area for almost six years. When Hubby Tony and I visit in the spring we usually attend a game at one of the 10 stadiums that comprise the Major League Baseball Cactus League. This year was Sloan Park in Mesa.
There's always been a friendly rivalry between St. Louis Cardinals fans and Cubs fans, which also extended to Arizona. When a vendor saw Son Tony's Cardinal cap he jokingly said "I'll even sell beer to Cards fans". The opposing team for the day was the Oakland Athletics, and the crowd was a mixture of people who had come to support one of the two teams on the field and people like us who were just there for the experience.
It was a beautiful day to be outside...sunny and 70 degrees, with a slight breeze now and then. The Cubs won 9-5, but we weren't around to see the end of the game. Because of our schedule we left early to meet a friend of Son Tony's at a Korean restaurant, where I had the best spicy noodles I'd ever tasted.
