    I finally have a date for my arrival in Phoenix. I'll be there June 21-25.

    Anyone up for a Diamondbacks game? I'm trying to visit every MLB park on my route, and they're in town. They're playing the Cubs that weekend. Friday's game is at 6:40 PM, Saturday at 7:10 PM,and Sunday at 1:10 PM. Let me know!

    And if anyone wants to meet up just for coffee or a drink, we can do that, too.

    Hey, Tino, where are you staying? I might be able to make one of the games with you, or meetup for coffee.

    Awesome! Let me know what game would work best for you. The more the merrier, so if you have friends who are up for it, invite them. If that doesn't work out, yeah, let's at least do coffee.

    You don't go to baseball games to watch baseball. You go to drink beer and eat bad food with your buddies. icon_biggrin.gif

    "First off, it's the middle of the goddamned desert so why is everyone there? Why is Phoenix? Ecological catastrophes, the twin brown stars of Phoenix and Scottsdale are insanely destructive, places so hot that they have mist sprayers everywhere even though there is no water there. Dreadful! The sheriff of the area is an insane lunatic cowboy wannabe who rules the town like Gene Hackman in the The Quick and the Dead. Alabama's batshit immigration law was inspired by Arizona's own SB 1070, a racist and xenophobic piece of legislation representative of Arizona's roiling immigration crisis that was signed into law by the state's governor Jan Brewer, a perky-eyed psychopath who speaks in tongues. Arizona is swiftly devolving into a dystopic free-for-all of armed mad men patrolling the state with guns, often to disastrous effect. (As witnessed in the Gaby Giffords incident — though, c'mon, you can't blame Arizona for Jared Loughner any more than you can blame Colorado for Columbine.) Arizona is a hissing snakepit of angry old white people (they are angry because they are literally being cooked to death) yelling at the immigrants and other Others whom they fear and loathe, and it is probably going to explode someday soon into a bright ball of orange fire and we will know that either the end times have come for us all or thank god we are finally rid of Arizona."

    Ugh. How could this thread be considered fodder for a flame war?

    Anyway, yeah, Arizona does boast some beautiful landscapes. Here's my reaction to the northern part of the state:
