Interesting 

  
It’s nice to have a Padres team that has some of us excited. Like a wonderful gift the baseball Gods have bestowed upon us for suffering through the boring years filled with tedium and mediocrity.

I’m not saying we’re gonna win it all. That would be like inviting Jinxy the cat into the equation.

I’m just saying that this year looks like it’s going to be very interesting. And fun.

That’s all.

Vituperation 

  
His vituperation made me feel like a funambulist barely able to avoid falling into a pit of thin skin sorrow as I teetered to the land of thick skin rationalization with one eye looking in my rearview mirror for verbal dirt clods being tossed in my direction.

Everyone 

  
I just tried to text someone to say “tell everyone” and it spell checked it to “tell Beyoncé”.

With the little accent thing too!

Until now I’ve never written Beyoncé’s name.

Is she everywhere? The word EVERYONE is nothing at all like the name Beyoncé.

Is it a conspiracy?

Here’s a flashback to two weeks ago in Melbourne Australia.

Complaining old man

  
Hey, here’s a chance for me to sound like a complaining old man–>

I’m at Fashion Valley Mall getting something and I walked by Haagen Dazs so I figured I’d get one scoop of chocolate ice cream. The girl said “4 dollars please”.

4 bucks for one scoop? Why I remember when I was kid in the sixties we’d go to Thrifty’s and one scoop was a nickel. A nickel! 15 cents for a triple scoop.
If I’d ordered a triple scoop it would’ve been 12 bucks.

When I was a kid in the seventies we’d buy a 3 finger lid of weed for 15 bucks. Today it would cost 150 bucks.

The price of weed and ice cream is taking this country down.

I’m tired of laws 

  
This is the obligatory train track shot you’re now forced to take if you’re walking down the tracks in Del Mar California. If you don’t take a photo and post it to social media then you’re fined 350 dollars or 10% of your annual income. It’s your choice or you’ll end up in jail according to section 349 of chapter twelve in The Corinthian leather manual case of people vs Californians walking on train tracks. Jacob begat Judas who who coveted Mary’s post to Facebook in 2010. Jacob said he would smite James and Judas was jealous of Mary and her technicolor Joseph dream coat train track portrait.

I can handle water rationing but this is too much. I can’t abide with a nanny state telling me when I need to post photos.

According to California law you must use the following hashtag.

I’ve added the under-protest hashtag because I’m a rebel.

The sun will come up tomorrow

  
Breaking news! Last night the sun got swallowed up by the Pacific Ocean in San Diego California. If you look closely you can see the last spark of the sun as the ocean gobbled it like it was a tiny dog biscuit tossed in the mouth of a hungry Rottweiler.

I could actually hear a sizzling sound as the last of the fireball was extinguished. It was amazing. And now it’s morning in America (didn’t a presidential candidate once say that?) and the sun is back up in the sky. So that means it was just resting and taking a bath after a long day’s work.

In other news The Padres lost their opening day game to The Dodgers. It was a close one until new acquisition Jimmy Rollins belted a 3 run homer in the 8th for Los Angeles. But that’s ok, there’s still 161 games to go.

There are so many new players on The Pads. It’s really exciting!

Did I mention that I’m singing The National Anthem on July 21 at 7:05 pm? In San Diego at Petco Park? Padres vs Giants.
