Let’s Go Pads!

Went to my first game at Giants stadium Monday night.  My friend from CLC, Jono, invited me to join him with his season tickets.  He’s also my dentist.  Definitely the first time I’ve hung out at a baseball game with my dentist!

He knew I was a Padres fan.  And he let me come and root or my team.  It didn’t help.  They got whooped.  Too bad we didn’t go last night.  They won.  Still up in the Wild Card race.  let’s go Pads!!

Tom and Annette Balch also have tickets and brought along Ed and Julie Tyler.  So we left the comfort of our club level seats and civil fans to join them in the outfield benches for most of the game.  Tom didn’t like sitting next to me.  Was afraid he’d get hit by a beer.  I figured it was a good way to get free beer.

    Bro! Our hotel was like two blocks from the ballpark. And we totally bummed around Santa Cruz all Wednesday…Lighthouse, Pacific Ave, 41st, Boardwalk, Erik’s Deli. I guess I’m officially lame cause we never met up. We gotta sometime. Heather and I were walking down Embarcadero right before the game…we thought about going and checking it out, but dinner called…Anyway, enjoy Santa Cruz, cause we’re jealous!

    Tom, 11-3 my Padres!!! Not quite a SF win.
    That’s such a nice ballpark wasted on the Giants. The last time (only time) I was there, some ‘roided dummy hit his 700th home run off Jake Peavy. Now, Peavy gets his 19th win while that dummy is done.

    Yes! Tuesday night was real sad. I can’t wait until SF wins tonight.
