Open Thread, 8/14: Padres vs Rockies

Once again, we face the young upstart Rockies and once again, Jeff "the Franchise" Francis leads the charge. I wonder what goes through Greg "Mad Dog" Maddux's mind as he looks across at the franchise?

I crap bigger than that guy, would be my first guess. Sorry I haven't been around this last week or so. I had fallen behind and read the last three Harry Potter books all in a row. The last one was good. I imagine various Padres as the characters in Harry Potter. Khalil is Draco. Marcus is Flitwick, the midget professor. Brian Giles is Hedwig the owl.

Anyways...

GO PADRES!!! EXPERIENCE IT!!! ACCIO VICTORY!!!
