The View From Wisconsin
Just a random set of rants from a Sports Fan from Wisconsin.

A few notes on the road:
- The company that builds road construction signs and pylons must be based in Arizona. ADOT uses a ton of them. It seems like they start construction areas for a mile or so before the construction, then keep the pylons up for another mile afterwards.
- I've never had the pleasure of driving a "real" car over the high-banking of Daytona - I did drive a VR car there once - but it's got to be less stressful than trying to navigate the 101 Loop in Phoenix. You drive at five over the speed limit, and they're passing you on both sides.
- The mostrosity that they're building over in Glendale looks strange already, and they've only started construction of the outer "shell." Trying to imagine people coming to watch a second-rate team in that place is a bit hard.
- A lunar eclipse on the same day that the Red Sox can clinch the World Series? Strange things indeed.
