Peaches & Pits

Peaches to Parker for still doing their clean sweep. Pits to La Paz County; they haven’t had one at Cienega Springs in years or anywhere upriver.

Peaches to the Man from Galilee. ‘Nuf said.

Peaches to the University of Arizona Wildcats women’s basketball team. No one thought you’d get to the NCAA women’s final four, let alone the finals. You came incredibly close to the upsetting the Stanford Cardinal in the finals. Hold your heads high, ladies! Ya done good. Arizona is proud of you.

Pits to the Stanford Cardinal. This is nothing against their teams, but why do they insist on using the singular rather than the plural? If you ask me, that name is for the birds.

Peaches to the Town of Parker’s Parks & Recreation Committee and the Parker Regional Chamber of Commerce & Tourism for the Easter Scavenger Hunt. Even with all the concerns over the coronavirus, they created a fun activity for families that got them out of their homes and was something they could do together.

Peaches to the Arizona Department of Public Safety office in Parker for participating in the scavenger hunt. It’s great to see law enforcement officers showing they have a sense of fun and want to be involved in the community. We’ve already seen plenty of that from the Parker Police and the La Paz County Sheriff’s Office.

Peaches to the start of the Major League Baseball season. The D-Backs couldn’t be as bad this year as they were last year . . . could they?

Peaches to the cat who ran onto the field during the Dodgers-Rockies game in Denver. I hope you find a loving home.
