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.
