LAist is driving around the country to find the fountain of youth. Currently we're in Arizona to see the Monday Night Football game between the Cardinals and the Chicago Bears. We're here because LA doesn't have a pro football team for some reason.

Yesterday we went to that huge crack in the country called The Grand Canyon. We'd been here before and to tell you the truth, we were less than impressed. Huge crack. Big whoop.

We were also less impressed by the $25 entrance fee to see the crack. How much does it cost to maintain a crack? Seems to be cracking just fine without our $25. Doesn't the National Parks get national money?

Anyways we're almost home now so we'll complain about local stuff soon.
