Royalty is going to the Desert in the Middle of October!
Here's the game plan:
I'm flying to Phoenix on Southwest Airlines. I leave New York LaGuardia Airport on Saturday, October 15th at 6:45AM Eastern Time, I have a connecting flight at Dallas Love Field before I'm scheduled to land in the Valley of the Sun at 11:30AM Mountain Time if I'm not delayed for any reason. Upon arrival, I'm renting a car from National Rent A Car for the weekend.
Due to a change in plans, thanks to the college football game I was planning to see in Tucson is now starting at 12:30PM local time. With that being said, I'll be driving Northwest to Glendale upon arrival to in hopes of seeing some Arizona Fall League baseball instead. I plan to pass up the opportunity to see a hockey game knowing that the Arizona Coyotes open up their home schedule right nearby at 6PM as they host the Philadelphia Flyers. I decided I'm going to drive over to Mesa & see another baseball game that night instead. Since there are no sporting events I can get to in the area that Sunday, actually I found a college hockey game that afternoon between Arizona State & Air Force that starts at 2:30PM local time but since they're playing at the Gila River Arena where the Coyotes play, I'm not interested. If it was on campus, I would have strongly given it more consideration. Instead, I've arranged to meet up with another sports traveler named Ty Kramer who lives in Tempe which isn't far away from Mesa. He invited me to join him at a local sports bar to watch football starting at 10AM that morning. I'm looking forward to meeting him. Afterwards, I may take a scenic drive around the desert. The scenery out there is amazing. I plan to have a busy day Monday before I fly back home on a red eye flight early Monday morning. My flight departs Phoenix at 12:45AM Mountain Standard Time on American Airlines. I have a layover at Chicago O'Hare before I'm scheduled to land at 10:30AM Eastern Time at LaGuardia Airport if all goes according to plan.
Saturday October 15th Salt River Rafters at Glendale Desert Dogs 12:35PM Mountain Standard Time
Peoria Javelinas at Mesa Solar Sox 6:35PM Mountain Standard Time
Sunday October 16th Zipp's Sports Grill with Ty Kramer & Possible Scenic Drive
Monday October 17th Peoria Javelinas at Glendale Desert Dogs 12:35PM Mountain Standard Time
Jets at Cardinals 5:30PM Mountain Standard Time
If you're interested in going on this exclusive getaway royalty style just let me know so I can arrange to have you join me.
It's going to be a blast so why not come for a "royal" ride.
