Padres beat Cards 5-3. Everybody's a hero

I'm not sure which direction ANY part of his body is supposed to move over the next quarter of a second after this photo.

I feel like 2010 was the year that I really stressed that every single game is important. This year I need a new theme I think. I've given up trying to prove that every game is important. It's too stressful.

Today is definitely the day that I decide that I am a Cameron Maybin fan. He won me over with his diving grab early in the game. He won me over with his home run late in the game. I have completely forgotten about Anthony Keith Gwynn Jr.

I checked out a bit of the game from the Park in the Park today, but couldn't stay down there for too long. It was a nice turnout and the unstable person who did not believe that I was real the last time he saw me wasn't there. Instead, I saw JBox and Jonny Dub... Peach... Sugar "Don't call me Shannon" Shana ... Laura "The Brandmaker" Broderick... Pad Squad Loxie (looking nifty in the striped sport socks) and a bunch of Padres fans.

I'm rewatching the game on and I've also taken a liking to the road grays. Dick and Mud are growing on me. I'm starting to put names to faces better. I don't think I really knew until today that that's what Jason Bartlett looks like. Shame on me.

Good Open Thread today. Let's keep the excitement up. It's a long season, but there's a good way to start it and a bad way to start it and today we started good.
