I love ragging on the Arizona Republic. the worst major metropolitan daily newspaper I've seen.
In today's sports section, we have a banner (pointing to an article on page 2) which says that while it's unlikely the Suns will trade for Kobe, it's not an impossibility -- "don't count it out just yet".
Just below that on page 1 is a different article on the Suns' trade possiblities, and it says the Lakers would move back to Minneapolis before trading Kobe to the Suns.
I guess the page editor called in sick yesterday.
Maybe he was saying the Timberwolves better watch their back.
The Republic is weak sauce, though.
KG has a better chance of landing in Phoenix in my opinion.
I saw Pearl Jam in phoenix once...it was awesome!

That was a great show. Mmm, lawn tickets at Desert Sky in a monsoon...
For the first two songs, at least.
I cant believe Desert Sky (aka Cricket) is still operating. What a dump. At least, it used to be...
I remember being stuck in a thunderstorm at Springfest out at COMPTON TERRACE (remember that hole?) in 1993. I can't for the life of me remember who was playing but I remember the speakers that were hanging were swinging back and forth and they looked like they were going to drop so they had to stop the show before the band got killed.
I missed PJ twice because of that whole Ticketbastard debacle.
I've seen some very memorable shows at Desert Sky/Blockbuster/Cricket/whatever-the-fuck-its-called. REM, all the lollas I went to, NIN w/ Bowie, Pumpkins, Beasties, Cypress Hill, etc.
Compton Terrace? Egad. I cringe every time I pass it.
