He would say "We are now leaving to Anaheim, Azusa, and Cucamonga. Those 3 small Cities are not so small anymore Anaheim has grown to more than 300,000 people (www.AnaheimSports.Com), Cucamonga has benefited from major annexation, devlopment of Freeway thru it's City plus a Retail and Residental boon and is now a city of 195,421 while little Azusa is not so small anymore with a population of more than 50,000 and in the process of major redevelopment in it's City.
