I've heard people/businesses schedule around ArtPrize, so as not to conflict/compete with the event.  As an outside observer, the event really seems to have made it/gained traction, in a pretty short amount of time.

Wow, the colors in this shot are striking.  The blue in the building, sky, and pole, certainly caught my eye.

This reminds me of my encounter with Sparty at an MSU vs. Cal football game.  These mascots are funny creatures/people/things.  I love them, they definitely have a place in sports and entertainment, but what I learned with Sparty was that interacting with a mascot was a little uncomfortable, to say the least.

Now I have a better idea of where James got his green C hat.  I love that it was signed by two Whitecaps players, I think. I told James writing his name and phone number on his hats would be a good thing.  Scott heard me too.  I think they were open to the idea.

Great question and topic. I haven't heard of travel ball for any sport being more prevalent now than before. Travel ball isn't inherently bad. The reality is that most athletes competing at the highest levels are products, in part, of an above-average commitment to the sport early, including ongoing organized......

good question! after some research, the card, based on its condition, is worth $200+. if a grading service were to say it's a higher-grade card, which is certainly possible, it would be worth hundreds more.

That's excellent. There seems to be a lot of available courts. They seem to go unused pretty often, which is good for you and dad. By the way, I was watching the French Open this weekend and reminded what a nice sport tennis is in general...John McEnroe is a great TV commentator.
