On The Road: Checking In From Tucson

It has been an unfathomably long day, the way days are when they involve thousands of miles of travel and multiple time zone changes. But before shuffling off this mortal coil (that means going to bed, right?) I wanted to provide decisive evidence that I did indeed make it to today’s Tucson Padres game.

This was taken from Kino Stadium’s upper level, at sunset. Goodbye sun!

And hello baseball!

This was an evening that involved the three Fs…

Food (the “Charro Nacho” platter at ballpark vendor El Charros)

Foliage (if I was a botanist I’d tell you what these are, but since I’m a baseball writer I’ll tell you that they were on stadium grounds)

Friars (more specifically T-Padres mascot Kino Bambino, leading the crowd through the motions of a subversive disco anthem)

The fourth F of the evening is fatigue, meaning that this will be the shortest “on the road” post in Ben’s Biz Blog history. But tomorrow (Friday) is a full day in Tucson, so there is plenty of content yet to emanate from the beautiful confines of Kino Stadium.

Until then, good night.

Wow, fantastic blog. Thanks for representing the Tucson Padres and Tucson in such a positive manner. I am already hungry for the Charo Nachos after seeing the photo. Zooperstars are going to rock it tonight. Go Tucson Padres!!!!
