May 12, 2010 – A Paradox

May 12, 2010

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!
