2007 - The GLB Year in Review

[editor's note, by Dex] Personally, I can't believe Drama has this kind of time... Oh wait, yes I can.

2007 was a crazy year to be a Padre fan...and even more crazy if you were lucky enough to share it as a member of the Gaslamp Ball community. I've tried to create kind of a Year in Review diary to remember the good, the bad and the ugly of the past year. This isn't so much just a look back at the Padres of 2007...as it is a look back at the Padres of 2007 from the eyes of the Gaslamp Ball world. I know I'm missing some great stuff here...if there's something that you'd like to add, please do.

Thanks to Dex and jbox for continuing to put up with what is really an amazing mesh of personalities.

It was a roller coaster year for Jake...filled mostly with ups...but it started on a real down note. "Call a real cop."

Mr. Padre...T Gwynn was elected to the Hall of Fame.

Marcus Giles gets his biggest hit of 2007. Sadly, it comes in January and at the wrong stadium in San Diego.

The return of Boomer! Yeah, that didn't turn out so hot.

Dex and jbox try to bring some credibility to GLB by interviewing Padres Special Assistant for Baseball Operations Paul DePodesta over a leisurely lunch.

The Giles Brothers kept things interesting during Spring Training.

Greg Maddux likes to leave his mark on rookies.

GLB teases us with the promise of a Gaslamp Ball Official Store Coming Soon! and sexy pics of Dex wearing a retired numbers t-shirt while holding...ummm, a cantaloupe? OK.

Opening Day in San Francisco was AWESOME!

The beginning of the GLB Mii.

We lose our home opener to the Rockies. Who knew that game would end up being so important?

Remember when MLB and People magazine teamed up to find the sexiest baseball fan? How did this guy not win?

The Padres lock-up Chris Young through 2010.

Dodger Fans show just how classy they are. On Jackie Robinson Appreciation Day, no less.

RBS ends up with a Khalil Greene homerun ball. This will be the first of about 15 baseballs RBS takes home from Petco. The best part about this story? Read what player throws him the ball.

Gaslamp Ball goes all C.S.I. on us.
