Worst Sports Show talking Padres

I some how got caught up watching the worst sports show... period.  I couldn't help it because they were talking about the Padres so much.

Pete Rose was their guest, this is what happened:

  • They all made fun of "the horrible" NL West.  Pete Rose said the five of them could go choose 4 random guys out of the audience and beat the top team (the Padres) in the NL West.  They all laughed and laughed.  Pete Rose kept giving John Salley high fives.

  • Chris Rose (no relation to Pete) sat there with his t-shirt, sport coat, 2 livestrong bracelets and bleached spikey hair and tried to talk about sports.

  • Pete Rose was talking about going over to Marge's house (former Reds owner) and how her dog came over and rested it's huge head on his his shoe.  He said that the dog's head was bigger then Bruce Bochy's head.  They laughed and high fived.  It's weird that people outside of San Diego are familiar with Bruce's huge head.

  • They shot a recorded clip about the San Diego Chicken making it into the Mascot Hall of Fame and a spoof of "Beyond the Glory".  Then they showed the Chicken in the control room directing.  It was really dumb

Since there are so many Marlin's over here, here's what Jack McKeon said about the San Diego Chicken's induction:

"We win the pennant, and they want to make the Chicken bigger than the team," Jack McKeon, who worked in the Padres' front office during the 1980s, told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. "Our marketing people think he's putting people in the seats. Marketing people thought he was the reason we were putting people in the ballpark. Once you see him 10 or 12 times, come on.

"Fans liked him. The Chicken is all right. Do your act, and get the hell off the field," McKeon said.

From Chris Rose's Blog:

Tuesday, June 28 The average baseball fan feels so disconected with today's player. That could change if you go to the bathroom at Petco Park in San Diego.

During last Friday's game with Seattle, some dude at the urinal turned around and saw Mariners pitcher Matt Thompson.

You see, there's no bathroom in the visitor's pen, so Thompson, in full uniform, had to hop the fence to "close the deal".

Leave it to San Diego to take the relief out of reliever.

That's a wrap for this comments thread.

No more comments for this thread. If you want to talk politics, then I'm sure you all know a good place to do so. Sorry to be a tyrant, but this isn't a democracy it's a Gaslamp Ballocracy.

We're all Americans here (except for those who aren't). We're all baseball fans here. We all have an interest in the Padres (however slight).

And now... We're back on topic.
