The Chicago Cubs spring training stadium is a nice addition to Mesa.
Fireworks. Love fireworks.
However, after 10 p.m. on a Monday night with school/work in the morning — not so much. It scared the family (it sounds like gun shots when you’re sleeping), woke up the grandkids, got the dogs barking, and kept us up until the kids got back to sleep. They can celebrate all they want, but a quieter way would have been much more courteous.
In addition, they block off streets in my neighborhood early in the day so I have to go out of my way to get to work. I’m sure they think they’re special, and that’s how sports are. But they are part of a community that includes families and could show a bit more respect.
