I'm glad we won last night, no doubt, but I really wish somebody (ahem...Braves and Dodgers) would have gotten those other two teams off of our butt. I hate when people walk too close to my butt.
Just yesterday I was walking down a flight of stairs talking to a friend and this lady came up behind. She was so close, and slightly higher since she was a step or two above me. It felt like I was giving her a piggy back ride. It wasn't like we weren't walking at a pretty good clip. I could understand if the lady was impatient because we were dawdling, but that wasn't the case. She was right there and I could feel myself being weighed down by her walking so close. I could feel her breath blowing through my soft luxurious hair.
My only choice was just to keep walking faster and faster to get her off my back, because I sure as hell wasn't going to let her pass me.
See what I did? That's a metaphor for the situation the Padres are in. Three teams sitting one game back in the Wild Card race.
Other games that we need to worry about are:
- Arizona vs. Colorado
- Phillies vs. Nationals
- Mets vs. Florida
Maddux pitching. Let's win this sucker. Go Pads.
