May 12, 2010 – A Paradox

I realized that I have not really recorded some of the landmarks and locations in our neighborhood. Although I have never attended a spring training game for Major League Baseball, the California Angels hold their spring training about 1 mile from our house.  Here is their big billboard.

However, there is a rather comical paradox here.  The name of the stadium they use here is the Tempe Diablo Stadium.  A basic understanding of the Spanish language would reveal that “Diablo” means Devil.  Hence, you can quite see the paradox of an Angel playing the Diablo’s playground!

May 11, 2010Okay, before you go and say “Ha! You missed a day Ian”, I did take this picture on May 11 but before I had the opportunity to post this, the cable line for our phone and internet got severed (don’t ask!!!!).  Hence, i managed to do this elsewhere, away from home, one day late.  The issue has been resolved so today’s picture will be posted ON SCHEDULE.
