Thanks again to Roxy, I spent Friday night in the pressbox of Dr. Pepper Ballpark in Frisco catching the Texas Rangers spring training exhibition win over the Florida Marlins 4-1. Here’s a picture from the cramped play-by-play booth of Roxy and his broadcast partner, Dave Van Horne. In what was a very uneventful game, the majority of the action was taking place behind-the-scenes as GM Jon Daniels completed a three way trade with the Cubs and A’s during the game.
Last night, Melinda and I took our seats at mid-field to see the Desperados beat up the surging Columbus Destroyers 51-30 and we left, again, with free pizza (anytime the Desperados score 50+, then your ticket stub is good for a free medium Papa John’s pizza. It’s the little things, folks.) I’ve fallen in love with Arena Football and we’ve made tentative plans to go to Arena Bowl XX in Las Vegas in June. Hopefully, we’ll be cheering on the Desperados.
