The Fiesta and PCS Bowls quickly approacheth. The stadium sign is on its way to be completed. There have been small hiccups and the job may continue for a bit but the majority of the work is finished. Today I struck down ropes. Walking on a beam. A dusty, rounded, thin beam.

Little did I know that my job would be self-defeating. In preparation for the Fiesta Bowl, the actual owners of [Pink Taco] want their name installed on all four sides of the [Pink Taco]. That's where we come in. However, I can no longer use [Pink Taco] to describe the area, which is of general disappointment to me. But I suppose creating double entendres whilst using technical gear in [Pink Taco] would be too easy.
This is a photo of the South side of the stadium. University of Phoenix, the nation's largest campus, is the proud owner of this fine educational facility. I think the football games should now all take place online. Of interest is the area below what is labeled "Red Zone" (Please take a moment to just imagine the potential lost). Well when Chase Field (where the Diamondbacks play) was constructed, it was assumed that the desert would provide enough sun for the grass field. Sadly, this was not the case due to the walls of the Field; hence, they have been required to bring in growing lamps, etc. to keep the field green there. Taking that lesson, the architects of the new stadium placed a wide panel approximately 3' tall that opens and the entire field moves outside for its daily sun - much like an inmate. The process takes approximately 45 minutes. More interesting factoids to come, or you could seek out the recent Modern Marvels or whatever program on the History Channel about the stadium.
