Hey there Padre fans!

Cody here.  Trying to calm down after the Opening Day excitement.  It was a perfect day for baseball.  The temperature was in the mid-70s.  The stands were filled with fans who’d called in to work or school with a case of “Baseball Flu”.  Our newest HOF member, Trevor Hoffman, threw out the first ball.  What could be better?

A win.  I know this is only the first game of the season, and there are 161 games yet to play.  We had some great defense early on with a couple of double plays, and the bats woke up in the 7th inning.  The 11th was a real nail-biter, and I thought we were going to win.  Not in the cards for us today.

And, OBTW, who thinks flyovers are a good idea?  I guess if you’re a human, four noisy jets flying overhead may be thrilling.  But, I can tell you that if you’re a bird and you see something very large and very fast flying ABOVE you, it’s not a comforting thought.

There’s going to be some great giveaways this Opening Day weekend, so if I could get to the park, I’d be there to get in on the great swag.

Keep the faith.  The season is young.

Go Padres!
