Really, Even on a Mountain Top!?!

I love my job!  I really do.  As I've said many times in the past, when I decided to get in radio my goal was to watch baseball and get paid for it.  And these trips to Arizona for Spring Training are the epitome of that.  However, even when you love your job as much as I do, you need a break from it.  That's what I thought I was getting when I decided to hike Squaw Peak in Phoenix (pictured below).  Just a few hours away from baseball and especially away from the Ryan Braun/PED conversation.

However, when I got to the top I struck up a conversation with a group of guys from Seattle.  I told them what I do for a living and they asked how I think the Brewers will do this year.  I said when I thought Ryan Braun was suspended 50 Games I had them winning about 80 games, but with an MVP in the middle of their lineup, they should be able to win 85-90 games and contend for the division.  One of the gentlemen responded, "Damn cheater! Should be supended!"  I'll spare you my reply because we've had that conversation and quite honestly, I'm done with it until we learn more. 

After 3 days (and counting) in the desert, I'm ready to get on with watching baseball and getting paid for it!
