$$$Had Nogales won last night at Coconino, they would've had to return north again today to play Saguaro.
Let's look at the travel times. The trip
from Nogales to Flagstaff by bus is at least 6 hours one way. That
puts Nogales back home at 3:00 am and players get to bed at 3:30. They
then have to pop out of bed and be in class by 8:00 am.
To arrive at
Saguaro in time for today's game would've required a 2:30 pm departure time
as it's at least a 3 ½ hour drive to north Scottsdale. After the game
another 3 ½ hour ride home arriving at midnight-thirty.
Had Apollo beaten
Amphitheatre Tuesday night at Tucson Amphi, the Hawks would've been on the
bus at noon today to travel to Page………..a six hour drive by bus.
had Cienega defeated Independence at Glendale, they'd a been on the bus for
Buckeye at 3:00 pm this afternoon.
The AIA really treats its
"student-athletes" well, don't ya think? Sounds like torture to
me! Why can't the AIA suits schedule the games a day apart at
$$$ I mentioned the long line to attempt entry into
Millennium's gym last night. Chinle fans are extreme addicts for their
teams and will travel hundreds of miles to support them. Thousands of
fans follow along.
I couldn't take a chance of not getting in so I bailed
out for my 2nd choice. Fortunately it was only 20 minutes
I walk into Independence's gym 15 minutes prior to game time last
night and think I've walked into a funeral for some dude without any
friends. No people, no noise!
Indy's gym has upper and lower
sections on both sides. The upper sections
halftime, the Indy fans had not even filled the small lower section across
from the scorer's table. What a joke!
You Indy people need to wake
up. You have an exciting team that plays hard AND YOU'RE IN THE STATE
$$$ No upsets last night but
look for one tonight. Can Coconino shock Saguaro? It's
possible. And Chaparral played McClintock close earlier this
season. If the Firebirds can contain Jermaine Calvin somewhat, the
ghosts of McClintock doom will dance until morning.
4A Playoff Travel---Shame on the AIA!
