The next morning with a doughnut and a coffin Buzz i took a Short Side trip off the freeway to look at a 50,000-year-old Hole in the ground known As meteor Crater. I paid $8 to set the Roadside attraction that perfectly symbolizes route 66�?Ts entrepreneurial philosophy of finding creative ways to separate motorists from their Money.

Paul introduced me to his Friend Chip Hale now the manager of the Arizona diamondbacks. They had played together in the Minnesota twins system and at that time were both in their Early 30s and trying to work their Way Back to the big leagues. They spoke of trades and the possibility of playing in Japan but Little did they know at that time that their Best big league Days were still in front of them.
