Burns & Gambo

  • Burns: A happy family in Flagstaff

    When you’re a parent you have these moments, fleeting at best, when your children actually (gasp) get along. They’re not bossing, nagging, fighting, annoying, needling, poking, prodding or trying to one-up the other. This state of bliss generally occurs on average about 5% of the time. But when it does you look at your kids, […]
  • Gambo: Where is the passion D-backs fans?

    It’s the fourth inning of the ball game and the Phillie fans in attendance at Chase field are having their voices be heard. Loud chants of “Let’s go Phillies” have erupted from different parts of the ballpark. And before you know it Ryan Howard hits a two-run homer to put the defending World Series champs […]
  • Burns: Why the Nash extension?

    I drove by a billboard the other day promoting a concert with Earth Wind and Fire and Chicago. And I thought…why? I see Steve Nash and the Suns have agreed on a contract extension, and again I think…why? I just don’t understand why Steve Nash wants to be here and I don’t understand why the […]
  • Gambo: The Suns last roster spot

    On paper it looks like the Phoenix Suns have their roster set for the upcoming season. But there is still one more move coming once the team waives Sasha Pavlovic, which will be before the season starts. What the Suns do with that roster spot will depend on a few things. If second-year point guard […]
  • Burns: The Suns are like a junior high dance

    In my library of analogies (and if you know me or the show you know I love a good analogy) I’ve got a few classics. To me a good analogy is like a cup of coffee. Day just isn’t complete without at least one. Time to dust off one of those classics to put the […]
  • Gambo: Trip of a lifetime

    Well I am back in the states, have spent the past few days watching the D-backs, Wimbledon and working the phones. I can’t wait to get back on the air Monday. The 9 days in Italy went fast, very fast. It was a dream vacation, one I had been planning for quite some time. Times […]
  • Burns: A fan favorite is born

    And just like that a fan favorite is born. Mark Reynolds, you are now the face of the Arizona Diamondbacks. This weekend was your coming out party. Your stock is soaring right now. Rip the team, back it up, and then follow it up with a potential All-Star appearance. Oh yeah…your jersey is gonna sell […]
  • Gambo: Venice

    It’s 10:12 am here (1:12 in the morning phoenix time) and I just said goodbye to my cousin Francesco and his wife Emma. The most amazing part of this vacation for my family is meeting our family from Italy. In Rome I spent a wonderful day with Alessia and her husband Mimo. And last night […]
  • Gambo: From Florence to Venezia

    OK, I missed an update Sunday. My computer died and I didn’t have an adapter for my plug in Florence. Electricity is different here in Italy so none of your American stuff (hairdryers, computers, phone plugs etc..) work without European adapters. First on Sunday, my final day in Florence. We did a full day private […]
  • Gambo: Some quick thoughts on the Suns

    Here are some quick thoughts on the Suns — I am all for the Suns starting over and rebuilding. The Shaq trade saves them money and that was the main intention. They were going to be so far over the cap this season and the Shaq trade saves them a ton (10 million or more) […]
  • Gambo: Update from Italy

    Getting ready to turn in for the night after my third day in Rome, off to Florence by train tomorrow. We had a beautiful tour of ancient Rome today and seeing the Colosseum is amazing. I learned that in the morning the shows at the Colosseum were Gladiator vs. Animal in the afternoon it was […]
  • Burns: Having to wait for the truth

    It’s a bona fide cliffhanger. It’s like the season finale of “Lost” or “24”. All those unanswered questions and now I have to wait to find out the truth. Did the Suns actually trade Amare? Maybe. Did the war room actually let out a whoop when the T’wolves left Stephen Curry on the board for […]
  • Gambo: Day 2 update

    It is 1 am in the morning in Rome and I just got done with an amazing day capped off by spending the last 6 hours with my cousin Alessia and her husband. I have some mixed emotions today because I live for the NBA draft and breaking all the stories, and not being back […]
  • Burns: Suns fans: Reality bites

    Good morning Suns fans, this is your wake up call. Two words popped into my head when told that Shaquille O’Neal was traded to Cleveland. Reality Bites. The reality is that there was no way, absolutely zero chance, Shaq was going to be on this team next year. The reality is that he never should […]
  • Gambo: Day 1 in Rome

    Well my streak of not being able to sleep on an airplane continued as I went the entire trip to Rome without a single minute of sleep. Something about sitting up makes it impossible for me to sleep. Watched a couple of movies and relaxed for the most part. The trip wasn’t bad at all […]
  • Gambo: The ‘redhead’ is the talk of the CWS

    It was last fall when ASU baseball coach Pat Murphy and his staff were discussing recruiting junior college players. Jokingly Murphy told his staff to find him a short, left-handed hitter who was also a redhead and he would think about it. Murphy rationalized that a red head had to be tough and said that […]
  • Gambo: Dispelling Suns rumors

    Let me dispel these rumors before they start to takeoff as I have received several emails based on some blogs saying Amare Stoudemire is going to Minnesota for Al Jefferson and the #6 pick. First, the trade would be a steal for the Suns. Second, Minnesota’s new top man David Kahn might be fired if […]
  • Gambo: Talking Suns hoops

    Although Shaquille O’Neal didn’t exactly rain on Kobe Bryant’s championship parade Sunday night, he certainly got to share some of the NBA spotlight as talk of his imminent trade from Phoenix to Cleveland dominated Web sites, television and radio broadcasts. Let’s clear one thing up right off the bat. The Suns and Cavs haven’t talked […]
  • Burns: Greatness in that grumpiness

    When I was in my 20s my father gave me a book called “What Would Machiavelli Do?” In his estimation I was too nice and would never get anywhere worth getting to in this world with such a pleasant demeanor. The book encouraged me – I guess – to get what I want by being […]
  • Burns: Too many problems for D-backs

    The walls need painting. The tree in the backyard needs to be moved. You’ve been meaning to redo the kids bathroom. The microwave doesn’t match the rest of the appliances in the kitchen. When I think about what’s wrong with the Diamondbacks, I think about what’s wrong with my own house. I don’t know where […]
