Another Vegas vacation. Another round of tacos at Del Taco. And another "on the road" blog post. Only this time I'm with my other brother... and we're not stuck in a snow storm.
In fact, the weather was perfect. So perfect that we even convinced Papa Fuji to get out of the house and hit some balls at the driving range:
All of you golf enthusiasts out there, try not to judge me too harshly on my form. I'm one of those recreational golfers who enjoys the executive courses in t-shirts and flip flops, instead of the traditional collared shirts and golf shoes.
My wallet card even had the opportunity to breathe some fresh air on the trip:
Willow Beach, Arizona
Willow Beach is about seven miles south of Hoover Dam on the Colorado River in Arizona. Papa Fuji rented a boat and we spent a couple of hours on the river. Unfortunately they don't allow boats with motors to travel north up to the dam on Sundays or Mondays. No biggie though.
The canyons south of the marina were gorgeous and we had a great time out on the river.
In an effort to turn this into a baseball card post, here are three guys who were born in Arizona:

Kinsler has the honor of having the highest WAR among MLB players and the most MLB All-Star Game appearances, while Cody is the only guy born in Arizona to win an NL MVP Award. All three of these guys own at least one Gold Glove Award.
John Denny and Jeremy Affeldt are the two biggest names I recognized in regards to pitchers. Sadly, I don't have any saved scans of either player sitting in my cloud and I doubt I'll remember to dig through boxes to find any when I get home.
Instead, I'd rather read your comments...
Have you ever been in Arizona?
Do you have a favorite Arizona memory or athlete?
Well that's it for now. Perfect timing too, because I'm starting to get car sick.
Happy Tuesday and sayonara!
