"The Padres made the Throwback jersey announcement at FanFest last year…and FanFest 2011 is coming THIS Saturday, Feb 12th. So, now my friends, we’ve come full circle. I looked for the 2011 Promotional Schedule… nothing. Couldn’t find it anywhere. Instead, I pulled up and checked the 2011 Padres Schedule because I wanted to mark my calendar with all the Throwback Thursdays at 3:35pm, you know, my FAVORITE part of last season. Gasp! There is only one Thursday day game, and it’s July 28th vs. Ariz at 12:35pm. What the hock? Then, luckily, I saw that there are still 3:35pm games, but they’ve been moved to Wednesdays…6 of them by my count. Hmm…Throwback Wednesdays? Phew, close call. That really doesn’t have the same ring to it, though, you know the whole alliteration thing. Time to investigate. So, I went my source at the Padres, (stop freaking laughing… I have a source!) and he told me that the fan reception of Throwback Thursdays in 2010 was NOT as good as they’d hoped it would be and he thinks they are only doing one throwback uni game this year. WHAT!? ONE!? I need to stop and take a deep breath, because my ears and my mind are not communicating and I’m having trouble comprehending what I think I just heard. woosah…woosah… WHAT!? Are you freakin’ kidding me right now? Padres, if that’s true, if you’re only have one throwback game this year… I’m so pissed at you right now I want to explode. So pissed. Seriously, whoever made this decision… whatever sunuva penny pincher decided to take away the coolest thing that fans have going for them… I want to take you, smash you up into a tiny ball… and stick you inside of that T-shirt cannon launcher that the Swingin’ Friar carries around, and I want to launch your cheap ass into the atmosphere."
