Phoenix 2011 Day 4

Spent the day checking out condo units at the north end of the city. Saw a total of 13 units between yesterday and today, and they are becoming a bit of a blur so I created a spreadsheet to record their details, including pros and cons. No clear winner has emerged…

Went for lupper at TGI Fridays around 4pm, then drove downtown to the US Airways Center to watch the Suns squeak one out over the evil Spurs. The row 10 seats right behind the goal (Suns’ end) were awesome! The two meth-heads (speculation) sitting to my right were the only downer. They screamed at the top of their lungs all games for the Spurs, but during halftime, everyone around us decided to make the second half miserable for them. This was a lot of fun actually, and they actually got into arguments with several fans. At one point the guy beside me freaked out because I was clapping those irritating noise sticks too close to his face or something. I almost felt bad for them because people were clapping them right over their heads (from behind), in their faces (from in front), and on either side. We’re just happy the Suns hung on. Very entertaining game nonetheless. Barb spied the two of us on the scoreboard cheering during one of those “make noise!” rallies, but I didn’t see it. I bought a game jersey which I wore proudly. I figure over 50% of fans has Suns jerseys on, and probably 90% of them were Steve Nash #13 like mine.

Plan to relax by the pool tomorrow and discuss the candidate condos. Still pretty sore today from golfing, so I will probably wait until Friday to play again.

Phoenix 2011 Day 3

I teed off at 6:30 this morning and was done just after 9am: incredible! The Legacy is a tough course, and I was lucky to scrap out a 48 on the front nine, but I tore up the back nine with a 41, scoring par on five holes. It’s not every day you can play 18 holes in 2.5h. I got back to the room and still had my whole day ahead of me.

We went shopping at Target and got some more supplies and some clothes.  We had a 2pm appointment with a realtor to check out some condos, and did some more shopping in Chandler at their giant shopping mall. The condos were neat, and we will be seeing more tomorrow.

When we got back, we headed to the pool to catch the last hour and a half of sun. It was pretty warm today, having reached 29C. Looking forward to tomorrow.
