Open Thread, 9/16: Padres vs Nationals

Way back in April, two things happened that gave the Padres a month's worth of instant karma. It was karma and mojo like we'd never seen before. Those two things happened on the same day: April 29, 2005. The Gaslamp Ball Way Back Machine reminds us:

  1. Anna Kournikova threw out the first pitch.

  2. Jon bled from the head in his attempt to grab a foul ball
For just over a month, those two things gave us sick karma. What I propose is if the Padres make the playoffs, we reinvite Anna Kournikova to throw out the first pitch of the postseason for the Padres.


We take turns throwing baseballs at Jon's forehead until it bleeds.

Only then will we guarantee ourselves a World Series.
