For Our Colleagues at 6-4-2 and Pearly Gates 

Angels to stay in Tempe.

For, like, 20 years. What intrigued me was the placement of the article. Front page of the Republic. Admittedly, it was a slow news day, what with the NASCAR race at PIR getting the primary placement, but still, if we needed any more reminders that the East Valley - West Valley rivalry shows no sign of slowing down, this was it.

So, the West Valley has the Cardinals (soon), Coyotes (if they ever resolve this thing), and 2 NASCAR races. The East Valley has the bulk of spring training, IKEA (Wednesday), and after a miserable football weekend last weekend, a really good football weekend this past weekend. We'll call it a draw for now.
