One of the highlights for baseball fans every year is Major League Baseball's annual All-Star Game, and this year's game will take place at Chase Field in Phoenix, AZ on Tuesday, July 12. For those fans living in the area or planning a trip to see the game, this season's All-Star Game and its host city have a lot to offer fans of all ages, both inside and around the ballpark.
Around Chase Field
According to Weather.com, the city of Phoenix averages 107° during the week in which the All-Star Game is scheduled. That means most fans, unless you like being slow-cooked, will be looking for a reprieve indoors with a cold drink and maybe something to eat. If you have never been to the capital city of Arizona, here are some places to check out during your trip:
Address: 623 E. Adams St. (0.35 miles from Chase Field)
Web site: http://www.pizzeriabianco.com/
One of the most celebrated pizza restaurants in the country, Pizzeria Bianco has received national acclaim from multiple sources including GQ, Bon Appetit and, probably the most importantly, OPRAH! Located less than a mile from Chase Field, baseball fans will flock here, so make sure you get there first because this may be a rare chance to taste the best pizzas in the country. Oh yeah, and they have bar next door.
There all different types of sports fans out there, but for the millions of fans who go to games every year, there is nothing worse than an annoying fan. Here are just a few of the "fan crimes" that these annoying sports fans make:
FAN CRIME #1: Being too old to paint your face
ARGUMENTS AGAINST: When you see a young kid at a game with their face painted, it's cute. When you see a college student with their face painted in school colors, it's forgivable because of college students' tendency to make bad decisions. But if you cross into your 30's and 40's (or even worse, older than that), it is maybe something you should think twice about. Those people in your section laughing, are not laughing at your cleverly painted face, they are laughing at your wrinkled painted face.
ARGUMENTS FOR: As David Puddy of Seinfeld fame said when asked why should paint your face: "You know; you have to support the team."
VERDICT: Guilty. Sentenced to take a shower to take off that ridiculous face paint.
