The Padres Award Celebration is today at the Hall of Champions you could have bought a ticket to the lunch for $75 dollars or 10 tickets for $750. Wow, nice of the Padres to give a group discount. In case you were wondering you could also have bought a special 2 ticket combo for $150 or the third wheel ticket package for $225.
Here's some of the auction items available for fans to bid on:
- Dinner with Jed Hoyer: Hoyer may be engaged but you can play the part of Robert Redford and Jed Hoyer can be your Demi Moore in this Indecent Proposal.
- One-on-One Pitching Lessons with Heath Bell: Learn how to over eat, feud with ESPN and promote Wii Fit while playing catch in the Padres bullpen.
Hitting Lessons with Kevin Kouzmanoff: Bahahahah! That's rich. I'd bid on this if they were "Hitting Lessons FOR Kevin Kouzmanoff"
General Manger for the Day: Three innings in the booth with Hoyer. Since when is three innings a day?
Lunch with Bud Black: If this was "Bud Black reads you a bedtime story and tucks you in" then I know insomniacs the world over would bid.
Honorary Groundskeeper: Isn't this a job they should be paying you for? The Padres should have fans bid on Honorary Bathroom Cleaner while they are at it.
Little Star Experience: This could be your child's big break, but not really.
Salute to the Champions: No Padres will be in attendance.
- A Game-Used Base from the 2006 NLDS: Good chance Albert Pujols stepped on it... Even better chance no Padres stepped on it.
Jake Peavy's Clubhouse Chair: Perfect for sniffing.
- Taylor Guitar Signed by 2008 Padres: Now you can strum along with the non-stop Gary Glitter songs at Petco Park.
