Still no real news to report on the Cubs, besides Big Z has an awesome mustache (which is now gone), Soriano is moving out of leadoff...maybe, and Lou likes margaritas just as much as the Idiots. Over at FOTG, the guys are reporting live from Spring Training and local bars (which all seem to have a similar theme). The much anticipated COI/FOTG drinkfest is still in the works.
Spring Training games begin next week. So to go along with my last post, here are numbers 6-10 of why Spring Training is so great:
There are plenty of babes to go around at Spring Training. And with heat, they are usually dressed pretty scantily. We like to stand on the walkway between the lower and upper decks of the seats and just enjoy the sites as they pass by. Wearing sunglasses usually protects your eyes from those extended stairs. Arizona may not grow the most beautiful women in the country, but they sure do seem to end up here.
7. Stick that in your corn-hole and smoke it.
This is not a bean-bag game, and is instead played with washers thrown toward a box with wooden sides and a pvc pipe sticking out the middle (which also doubles as a great beer holder while throwing). We are usually the only group to have this game at Spring Training games, although I have seen other variations floating around from time to time. Lazy Steve retired last year after a wayward throw ended up landing on a nearby windshield.
8. Now fully krausened.
Old Style. Sure, it's not a great beer. But living in AZ, sometimes you just want to kick back and watch a game with Heileman's (the brewery, not the new Cubs pitcher) best. Unfortunately, Old Style is not shipped this far West, and you can't buy it in any stores (as far as I am aware). The only times you can get in AZ is at Hohokam park and a bar just outside Chase Field (Can't think of the name at this moment) when the Cubs are in town. So grab an Old Style and fo-get-bout-it.
9. Dude, stop peeing on me.
Imagine wanting to pee at a Cubs home game, and not having to go in a trough! Pure genius! Plus, the tailgating even features port-a-pots, which often times smell like Cheech and Chong's van. Sure WAIW claims the troughs are one of the great things about Wrigley, but I will take my privacy any day.
10. DeKalb High School Class Reunions
Inevitably, we will run into any variety of characters that are living in AZ that I went to high school with. One year, Lazy Steve even ran into a classmate slinging brewski's. While this is not necessarily a great thing (unless any of our readers are from DHS, then we love you), it's interesting to find out how people are doing and such. While AZ is a huge transplant state for IL, the number of people from DeKalb is astonishingly high.
