Today is a day I have been looking forward to for a very long time. After what seemed like forever there is once again baseball at Chase Field. Today marks the first of two Spring Training games that will be held at Chase. These are usually a lot of fun and give the fans and the team an opportunity to a tune up to get ready for when baseball counts and the regular season begins. With the gates beginning to open you would think this would be the perfect day but that is not necessarily the case. When I was a kid my brother and I used to play this game called Good News and Bad News. It went sort of like this. “Hey, I got good news. You don’t have to go to school today!” My brother would reply, “Wow that really is good news!” Then I would respond with something like, “Yeah but I have some bad news, you have to go to the dentist.” At that point he would get all bummed out. It was fun messing with his head that way. Well today’s Diamondbacks game brought back memories of that goofy kid’s game that went something like this.
