The Tucson Roadrunners are off to a great start in their first season here. And we're glad Tucson fans are giving their new minor-league hockey team a lot of support. You wouldn't think of Tucson being a hockey town, but our perception about local sports is changing.

Soccer here is growing. FC Tucson is enjoying success, and that success is part of the reason at least 10 Major League Soccer teams are headed to Tucson for next year's preseason.

And after losing spring training baseball several years ago, we have the Tucson Saguaros and the Mexican baseball fiesta.

Of course, all of this is in addition to University of Arizona and Pima Community College sports.

This is more than just games. Local sports brings in millions of dollars along with the fans - making us all winners on the economic field, and that's more reason for all of us to root on the home teams.
