Amy and I headed out to Phoenix last Wednesday on Alaska Airlines with a layover in Seattle. I don't have the best sense of direction, but I am certain this wasn't the most direct route.
I started off the trip disappointed that the Horizon magazines don't have the Suduko games like the Delta Airlines, but I did receive a "light" snack. The good news is that it left me hungry enough for In N Out Burger.
We arrived to110 degree heat which I don't mind if I am surrounded by water. What I don't understand, though, is why Phoenix has such drastic temperatures from inside to outside. The gyms were freezing. Would it be an NCAA violation for me to run alongside the basketball game I am watching to get warmer?
Day one was packed with games from 8:00am until 9:00pm. We managed to squeeze in dinner at Buffalo Wild Wings with Linda Cole, one of our freshman's mom's. I think Linda installed Ausha's toughness as Linda ate the "HOT" wings with ease. I suppose I am a rookie to "wing eating" as I had to wipe my lips with chapstick in between each wing, went through three glasses of ice tea, and then filled the table with 20+ exhausted napkins. The best magic trick I have ever seen was Linda using only one napkin!
Amy and I wrapped up day two and I headed back home for a few days with the family. I imagine Amy found her way back to In N Out Burger before her trip to San Diego. Too bad they don't have a punch card for a free meal.
I fly to San Diego tomorrow myself to wrap up 2010 July recruiting. I may bring a book because who knows where my layover may take me.
