In today's Arizona Daily Star, the Tucson newspaper's editorial (http://www.azstarnet.com/opinion/116215) sings the praises of baseball and its return. It takes special note of excitment generated by our World Series championship. The impression is that the White Sox are very comfortable in Tucson and have no evident plans to leave, despite previously believed desires to leave Tucson for wonderful Maricopa County and the Phoenix area.

"What's that you said about Maricopa County?"

Honestly, I'm really excited for baseball, much like everyone here. I can't wait til the first ST game on Comcast. The beginning of baseball season is one of the best things in the world. The Sox coming off of a world championship doesn't hurt either.

There's a mistake in the editorial they mistakenly referred to the Rockies as major league.

:D::D:

According to a story on White Sox.com the Sox have already sold more spring training tickets then they did for the entire spring slate last year. They actually expect some games with over 10,000 at TEP.

LOL No love for the home team, huh? That's okay, there are many residents that join you in that sentiment. :D:

I refuse to get drawn into a Tucson vs. Valley war, but please take note of the fact that Jerry, Kenny, and Paulie all live in the Valley, not Tucson. There MAY be a Sox player who lives in Tucson, but if so, I haven't heard of it.

Doesn't surprise me, Lip. It's why I got up at 4 am, drove to Tucson, and waited four hours in line for the Tucson First event. And I'm damned glad I did!

More evidence (http://www.azstarnet.com/sports/116560) that the Sox have taken over Tucson from the Diamondbacks.

What about Valley Bulldogs vs. Bayside Tigers?

Slater scored the only touchdown at the Homecoming game off of a fumble on the opening kickoff.

Of course they're excited, the hotels and restaurants get to raise rates 300%.
