Spring Training in Goodyear, AZ!

By |January 23rd, 2017|

Okay.  I am NOT a baseball fan.  Except when I am.

As a native of the Chicago suburbs, I owned every bit of the 2016 Cubs World Series victory and may never forget that last game of the series.   The rain delay, the extra innings, the closeness of the entire thing will all be remembered […]
