We are watching the Mariners game on ROOT Sports NW tonight. They are playing the Padres at the home field, Peoria, of both teams (they share the facility). The Padres at this point -- the 6th inning -- are cleaning house on the Mariners. The score is 6-2 and it looks like it is going to get worse. Okay, it's Spring Training and you never know. But right now, it doesn't look good.
What a contrast to yesterday's 3-0 shutout game against the Cubs. We have tickets for the Mariners game with the Colorado Rockies tomorrow. Maybe they'll do better when we're in house to cheer them on...
Earlier this afternoon we watched our first of the NCAA March Madness games as our home town Gonzaga University of Spokane was playing heavily favored Oklahoma. I haven't watched a college game for quite awhile and I was quite taken aback by all of the whistles. I think the final count was something like 56 fouls called during the game. Most were for something they are calling "hand pushing." supposedly designed to give the offense an advantage. It sure seemed to me that it disrupted the flow of the game immensely. It wasn't a very fun game to watch, even though Gonzaga won.
It was another beautiful WARM day in Arizona today. If it gets too much warmer, we'll have to start thinking about turning on the air conditioners. I really don't like AC. I much prefer open windows with the fans on. There's usually enough of a breeze to keep comfortable.
