Padres lose 5-1 to the Cardinals, Kyle Blanks hits another home run

Tim Stauffer gave up a grand slam early and the Padres lost once again to the Cardinals. Kyle Blanks hit another home run, but this one, unlike his other recent home runs felt powerless and emaciated. I could almost hear Albert Pujols quietly snickering to himself. Enjoy dis one, you big cabrón. But you have lost dis game and your patetic lil' wildcat offense cannot 'elp you now.

I ended up watching the Project Runway Challenge and playing Wii Sports Resort. Did not stay up for the premier.

This morning, I got a McDonald's sausage biscuit sandwich with a hasbrown. Elliott was in the car seat next to me, smelled the hashbrown and immediately started asking for fries. When I told him I had no fries he gave me a look that said You look like you be telling me de truth, you big cabrón, But you also look like you not be tellin' me de whole truth.

Sorry about the late open thread last night. I dunno what happened there.
