Cleveland is the team most likely to go to Tucson as they want out of Winter Haven.

I don't have a link handy but I remember Indians management saying that if the Goodyear stadium falls through, they are staying in Florida, and they specifically said they will not come to Tucson.

I still see Glendale or private business coming up with the money to give to the Sox so that they can pay off the Tucson lease. But shame on the state of Arizona if they let that happen.

Yep, that's been reported a couple of times.

YEAH, the Sox should stay away because poor Michigan doesn't get to play in the game hosted by Glendale. Hell, Glendale should just say no to the BCS and all the money they'll bring in, too.

Don't be so harsh on Glendale. They have to put up with the Phoenix Coyotes all winter......

Still can't figure out why anyone would want to live in Arizona :?:

Have you lived in Chicago for a winter?

Yes 6 of them. One Saturday night in 1982 I shivered under a sun lamp at the Howard L to meet some friends at a bar because my engine was frozen solid. The temp was -29 with a wind chill of -90. Delightful.

At least Florida has the ocean. Arizona not my cup of tea.

We're even. I can't understand why anyone would want to live in Bawston. Or anywhere else on the East Coast, for that matter.

Gotta go, now. Hot tub time. :cool:

Sometimes the ocean ends up in your living room!
Haven't had a golf game cancelled due to rain in 18 years. I love the Valley of the Sun!

I'm sure it was very cold, but it wasn't -29 or a windchill of -90. Those would be records that don't exist.

I understood the all-time official coldest temperature in Chicago was 35 below. Wind-chill factors are transitory and don't apply if you're dressed properly. Essentially only apply if you're standing naked in a corn field.

On the other hand, I have seen days in Arizona where it was too hot for jets to take off at the local airport. When it's 125 degrees, it doesn't really matter that it's a dry heat.

Still, I would rather live in Arizona. And I'm glad the Sox don't train in Florida.

I remember just before I went out WBBM telling me it was -29 on the lakefront with a wind chill of -90 :o: That is the coldest I have ever been by far. They played a NFL playoff game in Cincinnati the next day and the game was played in -15 weather. The entire midwest was a freezer.

January 10, 1982
Bitterly cold weather was found across Illinois. Of the 109 weather reporting stations in the state, 48 of those reported lows of 20 degrees below zero or colder. Some of the coldest temperatures included 27 below zero at Rockford, 26 below zero at Chicago, and 25 below zero at Kankakee and Peoria.

BUT I would still rather be that cold than suffer thru 100+ heat in Arizona :tongue:

I remember some unbelievably cold weather in January of 1985. Thankfully the car started every day. Of course in those days we were told that we were on the verge of another Ice Age. Sometime in the interim the experts changed their collective minds.

I knew poor Dan Fouts and his boys were in trouble that day. Also, America's Team was taken down by this:

Not true. If you've ever been in -60ish degree weather, you have to wear a scarf or two around your face, with goggles for the areas around your eyes. Any exposed skin is in EXTREME cold. Plus, to get wind chills that low, you still feel the cold in your legs because the wind WILL push through clothing (unless you're dressed for an arctic expedition). Trust me, my soph year at Purdue (which, if you've never been there, is basically surrounded by fun cornfields) the wind chills got to -70 if I remember right. Classes still were not cancelled. I went to my first class at 7.30 and the wind was constantly blowing between 25 and 30mph

You are absolutely right. When my AZ friends say "Hey, there's no humidity, its a "dry heat," I point out that my OVEN is a dry heat, and I don't vacation there.

Don't think it ever gets to 250-500 degress like your oven does.
The fact is that 100% dry is quite comfortable
