Sunday’s game was a nightmare and I am still trying to recover from it. I am not talking about the game itself, that is the one piece that did turn out well with the Diamondbacks completing a sweep of the Giants and moving to within a half a game of first place (After the destruction of the Dodgers last night they leapfrogged onto the top of the standings). No, it was the events before the game that had me so frazzled. For some unknown reason the state of Arizona insists on doing road work on the Interstate from my house to the ballpark on weekends when the Diamondbacks are in town. Do none of these guys ever look at a schedule? I mean there are 81 days from April 1 through September 30 that they could work on the road and not have any adverse impact on the life of a baseball fan. So with leaders already announcing their intentions to seek office, I’ve made a note to myself to pay closer attention to the campaign rhetoric during the next election and to become more involved in the political process. At the next candidate debate I am going to enter a few questions just to make sure we are better informed voters.
