Three Padres Links: Scoreboard segment, seizure supporters and Clayton's cornhole

  • Here's a scoreboard segment from 2001. I must warn you that the shredding of the electric guitar and the quick flash editing will probably give you a seizure.



  • Banner-hit-a-home-run-for-epilepsy_mediumSpeaking of seizures, Padres Owner and Chairman Jeff Moorad is the Honorary Chairman of Gingerbread City 2011. As I understand it, Gingerbread City is a charity event and holiday gala that raises money to fight epilepsy, but it also features "the largest nationally recognized gingerbread structure competition on the West Coast".
  • If a large free standing gingerbread house isn't enough to get your mouth watering, know that Padres TV broadcaster Dick Enberg will be taking a break from "tending to his cellar of fine wines" to emcee the event.

    After looking through some of the information on their website I do have one small suggestion. I think they need to change their slogan from "HIT A HOME RUN for Epilepsy" to "Hit a home run against Epilepsy." We don't want people supporting Team Epilepsy.

    Dex and I were talking about the gala this morning and the best we can figure is that they chose Moorad not only for his habit of charitable giving but also because his slow cadence and sleepy voice won't trigger any seizures among the guests.
  • Speaking of fundraisers, Padres pitcher Clayton Richard returned home to Tippecanoe County, Indiana to help with fundraiser of his own. They had an auction and one of the "hot ticket items" was a Clayton Richard cornhole game. I didn't know that the popular bean bag toss game had a name before Dex told me. I was relieved to find that Richard's game had nothing to do with Urban Dictionary's definition of "cornhole".
