Even though we now live in Arizona we’re still ANAHEIM Angles fans. Yeah, I said Anaheim Angels not Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. That’s just lame. So, anywho, a while ago I was on a plane (reading the airline magazine) and I read about the Cactus League in Arizona. There are 17 major league teams that are a part of the Cactus league and hold their Spring Training in Arizona. We checked out the schedule and bought tickets to the Arizona Diamondbacks versus Angels game. Since we’re Arizonians(?) we figured it would be cool to also see the Dbacks (as we Arizonians call them) play our old “hometown” team.
The stadium is really nice and all of the seats offer great views.
Randy Johnson pitched for the Dbacks and received lots of cheers. That guy is tall!
Figgins on 2nd.

The game was good and was tied through the 9th. In the bottom of the 10th inning the Angels got a run and the win.
We had a lot of fun and we’ll definitely go to a game or two next season. Aside from seeing a good game we also got to eat some tasty junk food which included nachos and cotton candy. After all, isn’t the junk food the reason we all REALLY go to baseball games? Or is it the beer? I think it’s the beer because the people in front of, and behind, us must’ve drank a combined total of 15 bud lights.
