For the second consecutive year, I'm heading to the Pink Taco in Glendale for playoff game hosted by The Buzzsaw That Is The Arizona Cardinals. I'm not sure enough people appreciate how strange that is.
Two-and-a-half years ago, I previewed the Buzzsaw's 2007 season with an interview with The Anonymous Lifelong Buzzsaw Season Ticket Holder Friend. I wanted to better understand the franchise I'd spent my entire life cheering for, from the inside, from a guy who had sat out in the 120-degree Sun Devil Stadium heat, dealing with a fanbase that was 65 percent actually rooting for the Cowboys. I'd never even been to Arizona, and after the interview, The Anonymous Lifelong Buzzsaw Season Ticket Holder Friend (heretofore TALBSTHF) invited me to come out if the Buzzsaw ever actually hosted a playoff game. He said this jokingly. We knew that would never happen.
