Greetings from Spring Training: Not a pathetic night after all
PHOENIX -- So it's Valentine's Day evening Friday, and instead of being out for dinner with my wife, I was at a laundromat.
Coin Less Laundry was pretty high tech, and it took longer to figure out how to get the machine started than the actual wash.
The night wasn't a complete, pathetic waste.
In the plaza next door, I stumbled upon Tom's BBQ, which advertised "Chicago Style" underneath the main outdoor sign.
Walking in and hearing Stevie Wonder and Al Green was almost as good as the brisket.
I also noted the Cubs and White Sox signs in the restaurant, as well as the guy wearing "The Greatest Game Ever Played Was On A Wednesday In Cleveland" T-shirt.
It felt like home and tasted like home, and when I returned to the laundromat, my clothes were still there and completely dry.
That's a win-win.
