    I just read this today and I dig it. I haven't been to a Mercury game in a couple of seasons, the last time I went was when Taurasi took the season off to play in Russia. It was still a good outing and the tickets were free, so the price was definitely right. I was about 5-6 rows back and had never been that close to an event at AWA before. I could imagine how much a Suns ticket would cost in the same area.

    Huh? Even without the typo, I don't get it.

    During the renovation, the Mercury will have to play somewhere. Why not at the Coliseum?

    Back in the day, when I discovered that the best entrance and exit to parking was directly
    off 19th Ave., rather than all the way up to Encanto, I was in and out in minutes.

    Stopping at the Original Hamburger Works at Thomas & 15th Ave. became a tradition.

    Their burgers were not special, but the chuck-wagon salad and condiment bar was cool!

    Best entrance was off of Palm Lane.
