But tonight's not about talent. It's about the glorious American pastime of baseball. The usually awkward San Diego Padres play at home in one of the country's (or at least the west coast's) newest and nicest ballparks, Petco Park. Here's some of the views of the stadium, and one where you can see that some of the older nostalgic SD buildings were preserved, at least on the exterior, and they blend beautifully with the modern construction of the Park.
Obviously my rant means absolutely nothing without any numbers, but this isn't a statistics or analytical blog, so you will get none of that; in fact I'm about to point out all of the fun parts of my visit to Petco.
Oh yea, San Diego actually beat the San Francisco Giants that night (this was Saturday, the 27th of April)! I guess that didn't really help my case above when I was basically saying "the Padres suck". Sorry Padres. I had a great time at your ballpark. Here are a few more pictures to prove it.
