The Boys of Summer

Cubs and Angels warming up at HoHoKam Park


Former Red Sox standout Shea Hillenbrand at the plate



Ju Che's son behind the bullpens. Kerry Wood (left side of Cubs pen) came into the game and blew a 1-0 lead late for the Cubbies.
Here are a few pictures from the Sunday before last. I had hoped to catch a few more spring training games but work got in the way. I am still holding out hope for a Diamondbacks game. I had to bail on the Son Volt concert tomorrow night because I am covering a night shift. Sebadoh is coming to town on a reunion tour with original lineup (I think) so my fingers are crossed that I will be able to make that one. Robyn Hitchcock must now live in Tucson as he seems to play here every time I visit. Or maybe this is winter home. Both bands will be at Hotel Congress.

Along with the return of the national past time it is also National Poetry Month.
Poetry Daily has special feature email of a featured poem a day during as does Knopf. Although at least one person is speaking out against this flowering of April verse.
