LOST IN THE NOISE

Feb. 19 — EL MARIACHI LOCO, Mariachi de la Ciudad de Mexico (2007)

imageAs fate would have it, the final night of my trip to Phoenix coincided with Arizona State baseball’s season opener. Unsure of my ability to navigate the light rail to Tempe, I left plenty early — only to arrive an hour before game time. What a wonderful misjudgment. I walked the perimeter of the stadium once or twice, took in the view of the mountains to the north, watched the grounds crew prepare the field, got a bratwurst and soaked it all in. This song played as the first batter came up, on a perfect evening in the Valley of the Sun. Thank you, God. Baseball’s back.
