Wrigley Field South - Cubs Park in Mesa AZ

While the Cubs are the perennial underdogs, having not won a World Series in over 100 years, their home in Chicago is one of the most iconic sports stadiums in the whole world. In previous years, the Cubs have played at Hohokam Stadium, shared with the Oakland A's but this year they opened up the season at their very own stadium "Cubs Park", affectionately referred to as "Wrigley Field South".

As someone who has enjoyed numerous games at Wrigley I can say that even though it is someone that should be on the bucket list for any sorts fan, the park is an absolute dump. From obstructed views to cramped bathrooms and nets installed to keep concrete from falling on people's heads it is one of those places that should probably just be shut down - if it wasn't for the antique charm and sense of history that radiates from every square inch of the facility.

Guys Weekend at Talking Stick Resort & Casino

Scottsdale Arizona is a fantastic destination for a mancation and while we visited here for Cactus League Spring Training - especially since it is right next to Salt River Fields, it is a solid year-round destination.

There is obviously no shortage of world-class resorts in Scottsdale, Arizona and so it might be tough to decide which one will be the perfect spot for your next mancation.

Talking stick is a 4 diamond casino resort that has an on-property golf course, walking distance to the latest Top Golf location, an entertainment venue with acts ranging from Rob Thomas and Collective Soul to Dennis Miller and Tim Allen. It is also home to the Arizona State Poker Championship and if that isn't enough - even cool enough that even NFL Players want to take their buddies here for a round of golf as I found out during a twitter conversation with Philadelphia Eagles veteran,Mark McMillian.

Spring Training Baseball Peoria Style!

Ah, I've arrived in "Phoenix" for my first experience exploring this magical time of year called "Spring Training". My first stop is in Peoria where I quickly learned that while the Cactus League is based in the "greater Phoenix area", each town is different and has different things to offer. On this trip, we decided to try two different ways to experience Spring Training, so we started in Peoria Arizona - home to the San Diego Padres and Seattle Mariners.

Small But Mighty - Meet the Toyota i-ROAD

This isn't going to be the car you take with you on the next ski trip, and frankly I doubt there is room for your clubs either - but what the Toyota i-ROAD does promise is a new style of urban transportation that raises the bar for those who have thought about getting a scooter.

The three-wheeled vehicle features an electric motor and measures 33.5 inches wide, 56.9 inches high, and 92.5 inches long. While not much wider than a two wheeler, the i-ROAD delivers a fully enclosed cockpit and room for two people (or space in the back for groceries or gear for the gym etc.).

The i-Road currently is more of a concept car than something actually in production, but I'd love to see it rounding the corners in my neighborhood sometime soon.

To give you a better idea of what the i-ROAD looks like in action, check out the video from the recent road test:


As you can see from the video - one of the cool unique features of the i-ROAD is that it tilts like a bike when you turn, personally I think that looks pretty cool and I'd love to try one of these things out when it finally arrives on our shores!

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Toyota. The opinions and text are all mine.
