Something I just realized about the media and our Padres


It is all the fault of national broadcasters like ESPN for why we were labeled "chokers" last year. They laid out expectations for the Padres but also deep down saw the possibility of them not living up to their expectations (winning the division). However, the did not acknowledge it, they just made believe the Padres would win it all and as a result, labeled us as "chokers". They wanted to give us that supposedly dreadful label just to exercise their biased attitudes. Probably because they think it will diminish our fanbase and no one will support them and the other teams that bear self entitled fanbases will take over and think they are all so powerful.

However, I could care less about their fantasizing habits and will always be a fan of our beloved Friars thick and thin no matter what.

 

F**k the critics! GO PADRES!!!!!!
