It's cool to see Arizona's good vibrating mascot...My annual trip to the cactus baseball league with two college friends made a big start.I landed in Phoenix and was greeted by eight words that every Bay Area native wanted to read on their emailEmail subject line: "Rappin '4-Tay is following you on Twitter now!"Our trip was free, but then it was stormy weather.Although most of my more than a dozen desert trips were marked by an unforgettable event ("We were 86-from Jack-in-the-Box”;"We only listened to Billy Joel's glass house once ......), The trip is known for its many times of climate change in bizarro.It's like a disaster movie by Roland Emmerich, where in less than 48 hours, 85 degrees of weather is flooded with hail.In my recent Chronicle travel article, a veteran of Arizona's spring training guide, this can be seen as an end."It's a bit wordy, and I suspect many of you have moved to the SFGate cute puppy gallery, so I want you to take one thing away: there is a massage parlor at the end of each rainbow.By San Francisco standards, I think I'm the center.If nothing else because I am willing to take my kids to McDonald's.When I went to spring training, there was oneso-subtle shift.In Arizona, Gulf residents are Sean Payne.We landed in Barry M.Golden Water WharfI don't know much about Goldwater except his Republican Party, and I think he's very conservative.But the more I see, the more I like him.Do you know Barry Goldwater collects dolls and believes in ufo?When "don't ask, don't say" was founded, Goldwater supported homosexuality in the army?("Everyone knows that, at least from the time of julius Cesar, gays have served in the Army with honor.) I found a biography of golden water at the airport bookstore, but all they had was the usual Twilight/Tom Clancy nonsense.Every year I go to Maryville to watch the brewery with my friend Greg and Ian because it's a great little stadium and we love the Milwaukee fans so much.My blood pressure dropped near the Milwaukee people.They are very calm. they are very grateful for participating in the competition.Pay attention to the sky in the background.The Phoenix area of Arizona lacks beautiful scenery, but the sky is incredible when precipitation comes.Shot through a foul ball screen, it looks like a dreamy sky --Era MLB video game.The picture was taken about 30 minutes before they covered the fields and it rained.When we got to our car, it started to hail.I 've been begging my friend for a stop in the middle of the traffic driving on Scottsdale Avenue so I can get a picture of the rainbow ending at any 1.Strip club;2.Pawn shop;or 3.Gun store.I had to settle down at this mall.Below is my favorite tweet I received after posting this photo on my trip.My favorite new stadium is Goodyear, with the Indians, the Red Army and this confusing mascot.If there is not enough reason to like good vibrations yet, please add: there is a special person at the sex toys store who keeps monitoring its Twitter feed and is ready to respond to any questions aboutthe-On the spot of the penis-themed mascots.The name of the mascot is Zizzy.After reading the description, I don't know what it should be.The mascot is very enthusiastic in order to defend its existence, and the children seem to like it very much.Our best day.Wise, look at my giant in Scottsdale.I hang out with KNBR's Brian Murphy and his team (he runs with a group of people his age, and a couple of young people --Strong "outsider" atmosphere ).I missed the opportunity to realize my lifelong dream with KTVU's Sal Castaneda, when I accidentally blocked him on Twitter and missed his message.Enough names.Since the giant's victory in the World Series, I have noticed two fundamental changes at Scottsdale Stadium: 1.The atmosphere of the party strengthened: it was St.Patrick's Day, my new son in Johnny lime --I think I dress well.Most young people use green giant equipment.This is my definition of dedication.Have a hat or shirt that can be worn up to three times a year-during St.Patrick's Day spring training game, Irish Heritage Day, and perhaps a special compost/recycling night.I'm also sure that between the 2010 acquisition of Cody rose and Brian Wilson for the last World Series, every hot mom in the Great Bay Area (plus a few hot moms in Santa Cruz) became a huge fan of the Giants.Most of them sit on the lawn with us.2.Ticket prices are absolutely ridiculous: I went to spring training with a Dodgers fan and a Padres fan, and every year they swore to put the hot mom business aside and they would never return to Sri againI attribute some of them to the jealousy that their team's collective success has caused.But I have to agree that the fare puts me on the verge of resistance in principle.We paid $27.The cheapest seats on the lawn each have 50, which seems to be oversold according to all the people standing, as they can't find a few square feet of seats to sit down.In three non-During the trip we sat behind the fifth row or better home and paid no more than $24.50 per ticket.Some are simple economics.The price of the Giants seats varies according to demand, which is the game of the Giants on Saturday afternoon.But I think the ownership/fan relationship should go beyond capitalism at this moment.When Benji Molina was your innocence, I went to the competition all the time --up hitter.I put up with Aaron Rowland's three-year batting posture.In return for this loyalty, the lawn seat must not exceed $15.Even some wealthy fans are willing to pay.When we found out that a van Harun cover band called "van Harun" was playing in the big ballroom of The Talk bar casino, our luck improved significantly.For $9.99.I'm not saying I'm completely intoxicated, but this is the best of about 30 photos of the band I 've taken.Fan Halen should work on passive deviceThere was an aggressive chemistry between Fake David Lee Ross and Eddie Van Harun, who was a good guitarist, but he was amazing.They should invest in clothing that doesn't look like a Halloween spirit supermarket.Beyond that, I fully support van Helene.They met every need of my van Harun tribute band.(I spent $9.$99 on the ticket, $ T-10Playing video poker lost $60 and winning $80 on roulette.That means I put a penny in advance of the casino.Another authentic oneThey made Michael Fanthony sell $10 T-Shirt after the showHe is a very cute person.A few years later, I will make sure and support him when Van Helene throws him on the side of the road and he starts playing for a chicken claw tribute band.More information on Goodyear Ballpark.The food in this place was poor and I sat down and found my seat broken --Considering that the park is less than three years old, this is a bad sign.But it is still at the top of my favorite Cactus League for a few reasons: there is a soft truck Sir behind the field seat on the left.The park is only built for 10,000 fans and is more intimate than Glendale's new super park and talk stick.But my favorite feature is an airplane cemetery outside the outfield.The equivalent of our reserve fleet near Benicia.The new force ranking of the spring training baseball stadium competition: 5.Phoenix Stadium (track and field) 4.Surprise (Royal/Rangers) 3.Peoria (Priest/Sailor) 2.Indian/Red Army 1.Other ideas for Maryville (Brewers) travel?* At least five times during each spring training trip, we found ourselves seeing an old man coming out of the corner of his eye and saying, "Hey, isn't that Dick Cheney?"This is one of several Cheney Doppels when we were eating at Scottsdale BLT steakhouse.No photos: The bride and groom are married right behind usI suspect it was forced in because of the rain.The House's music system plays "wheels in the sky" through the journey in their vows ".Awesome.* Megaphone-wielding, sign-Bearing, you-going-to-The hell appetizer really brought it into Tempe.I haven't seen more than two times in the Bay Area at a time.There are at least 12 people a block from our hotel.* The national anthem of the Cactus League Stadium is 40%, 30%, on average, longer than a decade ago.I blame American Idol""* Spring training is no longer a cheap holiday in recent years as game tickets, airline tickets and hotel prices have risen.However, this experience is still unique.I 've still seen a lot of fan-to-player interactions and the friendliness between opposing fans you can't see in the regular season.In a Dodgers game, I wore an orange hoodie and the Giants hat, nothing but a positive conversation with the Los Angeles fans.This is my summary this year.There are more photos below.Your training 2012 idea.
