Jump on the 101 going West, half a mile from our launching point in North Scottsdale, and it’s two short exits to the beautiful Desert Ridge Marketplace technically located in Phoenix.
And within the Marketplace you’ll find one of my favorite Barnes & Noble stores. It is beautiful both on the outside and the inside.
As you know from reading this blog or other sources, the Tim Tebow experiment has captured the imagination of a considerable number of fans. They aren’t just Florida Gator devotees or Christians (born again or other varieties), but people intrigued to see if he can succeed in a sport other than football at this late stage.
It’s probably small comfort to Tebow knowing that he’s actually hitting better than the Phillies recycled AFL prospect, Aaron Brown (Tebow at .147 and Brown at .140 and dropping fast).
Browsing in B&N a few days ago, a sign caught my eye promoting Tebow’s new book, Shaken, and his upcoming book signing. I skimmed the book and it was entirely about football, with no mention of his hankering to pursue baseball.
When I took a ride over to the B&N again yesterday morning, I was amazed to see a line outside the store awaiting its opening at 9 AM, well in advance of his 7PM signing.
