The time has come once again to journey to the land of cacti, shockingly lax gun laws, and space coyotes voiced by Johnny Cash. That's right, kids - WAIW (well, half of it) is going to Mesa for Spring Training.

I was once again reminded of how much I hate the Ricketts family ownership when I attempted to buy four tickets to Sunday's game and noticed that for the convenience of forking over for four tickets, they wanted to tack on a fifth ticket's worth of "Convenience fees." I've paid more ticket fees in my day than most men, and even to me this seemed a Ticketmasterish level of "Fuck you in the face" from the Undercover Boss and his Okie brood.
Oh well. There will be tailgating, a College of Idiots crossover, and enough beer to soothe my enraged soul. I may or may not eat In N Out Burger more times than is recommended by the Surgeon General. We'll have updates for you throughout, so strap in, kids. The 2011 season is nearly on.
