L.A. Laker Ron Artest was doing a news conference in San Diego yesterday at the Chargers media center and jokingly said he'd like to play for other San Diego professional sports teams.
"And I'm also here to say that next year I'll be trying out for the San Diego Chargers, so I look forward to that. Hopefully I can play some baseball. Is there a baseball team here?"
You're wearing the hat, he was told.
"I know I'm wearing the hat. I just love the SD. The logo looks great. I didn't realize there was a baseball team in San Diego."
The Padres are more of a fashion statement than a baseball franchise.
