Snake Charmers

We apologize for being haters, but we’ll probably never forget when, years ago, the Arizona Diamondbacks announced that they were increasing ticket prices. Yeah, so what’s the big deal? Well, friends, they did so during fan-appreciation weekend. Golly, did we feel, uh, appreciated.

As the years have passed, we’ve softened a bit, especially since the organization keeps putting on supercool events like Arizona Diamondbacks Fan Fest. The shindig will feature tours of the Chase, photo-ops, and autograph sessions with more than a dozen players and coaches, including Stephen Drew, Chad Tracy, Conor Jackson, Justin Upton, and skipper Bob Melvin.
