Well, the pod has been re-located to SnakePit Towers v2.0, and seems to have arrived fairly intact, so that's a good thing. Taken something of a breather today, and looking forward to seeing the pitcher who has been the best in the American League so far this year. Yeah, even if he is going against us - and after last night's little fiasco, facing Gil Meche, I can only expect the Diamondbacks to score a negative number of runs facing Greinke. Not sure how, but if there's any game to do it, facing the AL leader in ERA would seem like a good time.


Confirmation of the bad news today that Chandler Cinemas is closing. That's a real shame, as it was easily the best cinema in the entire valley, showing stuff that would never normally get a chance to see the theatrical light of day. It's particularly sad, since they were supposed to be hosting our Phoenix Fear Film Festival in September. We'll have to see if we can find another venue for that, though given the time-frame concerned, it's going to be something of a problem. Another nail in the coffin of Phoenix as a thriving city. Just glad we didn't end up moving down to Chandler, as we contemplated doing!


On the other hand, got word that there's going to be a free post-game concert on August 29th, following SnakePitFest 2. That's the good news. The bad news is...well, I guess it's only bad news if you don't like country and western, because it's by Montgomery Gentry. I will cheerfully confess to never having heard of them, but from the description...well, let's just say we won't be hanging around after the game for that. Denny's, anyone? :-)

Should be about for most of this one - going to try and squeeze in a movie before first-pitch. Azreous back on the recap after his week off. Heck, I could get used to this whole non-recapping thing, since between days off and guest contributors, it'll be four days by tomorrow when I get back on the stick. Let's hope we actually get something good to recap about - Azreous games are usually 'interesting', though in this case, that may well end up being a perfect game for Greinke! Penelope the No-hit Killer will be on stand-by...
